The infamous Boeing 737 Max may return to service in Europe by the end of the year

Even those who are not interested in aircraft at all have heard about the Boeing 737 Max. This is a new Boeing airliner, which in just six months of operation – from October 2018 to March 2019 – was marked by four accidents, two of which, fortunately, were without casualties.

Given the statistics unacceptable for the aircraft, as well as rumors regarding the causes of these accidents, most airlines in the world suspended all Boeing 737 Max flights in early 2019.

And now it became known that the European regulator announced that the Boeing 737 Max has become safe enough to fly. These airliners will be able to return to service in Europe before the end of this year. At the moment, apparently, the changes made by Boeing engineers are only programmatic in nature.

The company is now developing some kind of software synthetic sensor that should solve the problem with the angle of attack sensors, which, presumably, were the culprits.

The new sensor will be mandatory for the 737 Max 10 modification, which will be released in 2022, but already released aircraft will also receive a corresponding software update. True, this sensor will be ready only in 20-24 months.
