Boeing actually dealing with 737 Max electrical system issue, FAA says

The Federal Aviation Administration gave a notification to global controllers and airplane administrators Thursday showing that Boeing is as yet chipping away at an electrical issue with about 737 Max planes.

“The FAA is continuing to work with Boeing as it works to fully identify and address an electrical bonding and grounding issue” that is affecting more than 106 Max planes, the FAA said in a statement to FOX Business.

Around 71 of those planes are enlisted in the United States, as indicated by the organization.

Boeing educated the FAA recently that it prescribed administrators to incidentally eliminate the airplane from administration to address an assembling issue that could “meddle with the activity of a reinforcement power control unit,” the office said.

As per the FAA’s note, “subsequent analysis and testing showed the issue could involve additional systems.”

The entirety of the influenced plans are as of now grounded “while Boeing continues to develop a proposed fix.”

The FAA said it will guarantee the issue is tended to and has been in contact with both the aircrafts and with Boeing.

“We concur with the FAA notice and continue to work closely with the regulator and our customers to address the issue,” a Boeing spokesperson told FOX Business in a statement.

The notification comes days after U.S. Transportation Department’s Office of Inspector General reported that it would review the FAA’s choice in November to unground the 737 Max.
