GROWING CALLS FOR BOEING 737 MAX TO BE SCRAPED AS CHINA SUSPENDS THE AIRCRAFT CERTIFICATION

Pressure grows of Boeing to withdraw from production and flight the suspicious 737 MAX aircraft after a string of fatal crashes that claimed the life of more than 300 people revealed essential flaws in the aircraft.

 

Boeing 737 MAX the aircraft involved in two air-crash disasters should be seriously scrutinized before ever to be left to take passengers.

 

China is taking the lead in order to insure air safety for his citizens and after being the first nation to ground all  Boeing 737 MAX is taking another step further and is  suspended the certificate of airworthiness.

 

China suspended the certificate of airworthiness for Boeing Co.’s 737 Max jet, saying it needs to review a proposed modification before determining whether the plane is safe to fly after two recent crashes.

The move raises the possibility of the Max being kept out of skies should authorities deem Boeing’s fix for plane-control software linked to the disasters inadequate.

Earlier Chinese authorities grounded the country’s fleet of Max planes on March 11, a day after an Ethiopian Airlines flight plunged to the ground by systemic failure.

The latest decision was taken in light of the uncertainty surrounding the model and an anti-stall system that’s the focus of a probe into the loss of the Ethiopian Airlines plane, according to the Civil Aviation Administration of China.

In addition to China, officials in Canada and the European Union have signaled that they intend to independently review changes to the Boeing planes before restoring flights.
