FAA publishes draft report on Boeing 737 MAX MCAS changes


The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) published a draft report from the Boeing 737 MAX Flight Standardization Board, after reviewing changes made by Boeing to the aircraft’s Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS). Design issues of the MCAS were noted in the wake of two fatal Boeing 737 MAX 8 accidents.

The Flight Standardization Board reviewed only the training aspects related to software enhancements to the aircraft, stating the “system was found to be operationally suitable”.

The report is open to public comment for 14 days. After that, the FAA will review those comments before making a final assessment. Boeing Co. is still expected in the coming weeks to submit the final software package for certification.

  1. Is there (MCAS) a link between software and Artificial Intelligence (and Machine Learning)?? The technological engineers knows what is in software??…. especially in the correction process of the plane position?? More attention on AI and ML! Here can be a disaster for company.
