U.S. FAA says it expects to receive Boeing software fix over the ‘coming weeks’

April 1, 2019

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said on Monday it expects to receive Boeing Co’s proposed software enhancement package for the grounded 737 MAX “over the coming weeks” after the company had previously said it planned to submit the fix for government approval by last week.

FAA spokesman Greg Martin said that “time is needed for additional work by Boeing as the result of an ongoing review of the 737 MAX Flight Control System to ensure that Boeing has identified and appropriately addressed all pertinent issues.”

Boeing did not immediately comment.
