Boeing to issue safety warning to pilots for 737 Max jets: Report

Boeing to issue safety warning to pilots for 737 Max jets: Report

The directive comes after a Boeing 737 Max 8 crashed off the coast of Indonesia, killing all 189 people who were onboard.

An AOA sensor provides data about the angle at which wind is passing over the wings and tells pilots how much lift a plane is getting.

Aviation regulator, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), had asked Jet Airways and SpiceJet to take corrective action to address possible issues with their Boeing 737 MAX planes, which could lead to "significant altitude loss" of the aircraft, a senior official said on Thursday.

Virgin Australia has ordered 40 new 737 MAX 8 models for its fleet - to be in use by next year - but will not back out of the purchase in light of the guidelines.

A USA aviation regulator plans to mandate that airlines follow an advisory issued by Boeing Co.

To avoid having the problem repeat, pilots may deactivate the stabilizer trim system, according to The Air Current's explanation.

The directive focuses on how to handle erroneous data from a sensor that investigators believe malfunctioned on the Lion Air jet that plunged into the Java Sea shortly after taking off from Jakarta on October 29.

The plane and the pilots were grounded, while passengers were escorted off the aircraft and moved to another plane, which took off to a considerable delay compared to the original flight schedule.

"The draft of what will be conveyed by Boeing this morning has been presented to us", air accident investigator Nurcahyo Utomo said.

Flight JT610, which killed all 189 people on board, was the first major accident involving the 737 MAX.

A Boeing spokesman said an investigation into the deadly crash revealed the faulty sensor.

Indonesia's National Transportation Safety Committee earlier this week announced the plane had a malfunctioning airspeed indicator on its last four flights, based on analysis of the flight data recorder. The head of Indonesia's National Transportation Safety Committee, Soerjanto Tjahjono, told reporters in Jakarta on Monday that he was discussing the options for wider inspections with Boeing and his us counterparts. But the plane's computers will resume trying to dive as soon as they release the switch, the Boeing bulletin said.

Boeing has delivered 219 Max planes - the latest and most advanced 737 jets - since the models made their commercial debut previous year with a Lion Air subsidiary.

Indonesian officials said on Wednesday they would extend the search by three days.

Meanwhile, the search operation to recover the passengers, crew and the airplane's cockpit voice recorder is ongoing.
