Boeing has discovered another software problem: On the 737 Max and that will be fixed prior the airplane returns to the skies.
It’s at least the third different software problem that has been discovered since the plane was grounded in March last year following a pair of fatal crashes that claimed the lives of 346 people.
The new concern apparently has to do with a warning light that helps tell pilots when the trim system. FAA head Steve Dickson said during a talk in London on Thursday that the light was “staying on for longer than the time period”.
The issues involve the flight-control computer and don’t affect the plane’s estimated return to service in mid-2020, Boeing said in an email Tuesday.
Max’s software has been undergoing a redesign after being linked to two fatal crashes that prompted a worldwide flying ban more than a year ago.
