Boeing to issue safety warning to pilots for 737 Max jets: Report
08 November, 2018, 15:37
Boeing said that investigations by authorities in Indonesia where Lion Air flight 610 crashed last month had indicated problems with an "angle of attack" sensor.
The warning follows preliminary findings from the Lion Air crash that the angle-of-attack (AOA) sensor malfunctioned.
The Chicago-based manufacturer said investigators probing the crash of Flight JT610, in which all 189 on board were killed, had found that one of the "angle of attack" sensors on the brand new plane had provided incorrect readings.
The bulletin cautions operators of the 737 Max that erroneous readings from one of the plane's sensors can cause the aircraft to enter into a sudden dive, Bloomberg reported.
Boeing says only 200 of its latest 737 MAX jets are in service around the world.
On November 6, Boeing said it had issued an Operations Manual Bulletin (OMB) directing operators to existing flight crew procedures to address circumstances where there is erroneous input from an AOA sensor. Boeing is still investigating why the sensor malfunctioned but in the meantime, pilots are being warned to take extra safety precautions when flying those models.
"We don't know what the crew knew and didn't know yet", Cox said. "The nose is turning itself down and they are having to fight it".
"We also plan to conduct a flight reconstruction to see the impact of the AOA sensor damage in the engineering simulator at the Boeing facility in Seattle".
The planemaker said local aviation officials believed pilots may have been given wrong information by the plane's automated systems before the fatal crash.
"Whenever appropriate, Boeing, as part of its usual processes, issues bulletins or makes recommendations regarding the operation of its aircraft".
