#EthiopianAirlinesCrash: Boeing to train pilots on 737 MAX updates

Mr Joseph says maintaining the same fleet of Boeing jets is the most cost-efficient option for the national carrier, but that will depend on the manufacturer's ability to fix safety concerns around the new 737-800 Max series.

Pilots and training officials from Southwest Airlines, American Airlines and United Airlines met with Boeing officials Saturday to review the software changes in the Seattle area, where the model is assembled, according to multiple airline sources.

Ethiopian investigators looking into the Boeing 737 MAX 8 plane crash have now shared raw data from the flight data recorder with USA and other global parties, three sources told ABC News Monday. KQ is planning to discard two of its Boeing 737-700 jets before the end of the year to adopt the new model.

Boeing is preparing a software fix for the system - which must be approved by the US Federal Aviation Administration - which is created to stop the plane from pointing upwards at too high an angle, where it could lose its lift.

As early as this week, Boeing is likely to start actual 737 MAX flight tests for the goal of certifying the new software.

The session in Renton, Washington is part of an effort to reach all current, and many future, 737 MAX operators and their home regulators to discuss software and training updates to the jet, Boeing said in a statement.

Air Force General (Ret.) Darren McDew, former head of the U.S. Transportation Command, and Captain Lee Moak, former President of the Air Line Pilots Association, will serve as the interim co-chairs of the panel, pending the appointment of other members.

Boeing plans to meet this week with customers and regulators to explain the measures it's taking to get its 737 Max back into service, after the aircraft was grounded following two deadly crashes in less than five months.

Norwegian Air has published details of a temporary transatlantic schedule for the first two weeks of April as it attempts to deal with the ongoing fallout from the grounding of Boeing 737 MAX aircraft used in its Irish fleet.

A person familiar with how Saturday's session was conducted said it was "very hands on".

The new system is created to push the plane's nose down for no longer than 10 seconds in the event of a detected stall.

Boeing is preparing to release a software update and revised training guidelines that are aimed at addressing the MCAS issue.

Once the software is approved by the FAA, it will be mandated, the agency has said. Another change would reportedly limit the system's ability to kick in repeatedly.

Chao's team is preparing for a grilling from concerned lawmakers, and Chao said in a statement, "This review by leading outside experts will help determine if improvements can be made to the FAA aircraft certification process".
