Boeing To Upgrade Software In 737 MAX 8 Fleet In 'Weeks'
Boeing has confirmed that it will deploy a software upgrade to the 737 MAX 8. This comes a few hours after the Federal Aviation Administration said it would mandate “design changes” in the aircraft by April. Boeing did not reference Sunday’s Ethiopian Airlines crash in connection to the software upgrade. Reuters reports, the statement did express the company’s condolences to the relatives of the 157 people who died, however. The company said it has for several months “been developing a flight control software enhancement for the 737 MAX, in the aftermath of October’s Lion Air Flight crash. The software upgrade “will be deployed across the 737 MAX fleet in the coming weeks,” it said. The flight control software was designed to make an already safe aircraft even safer.”
