EASA Completes Its Boeing 737 MAX Test Flights

It's Been A LONG Road Back To Redemption For The Boeing 737 MAX

It's been a LONG road back to redemption for the Boeing 737 MAX as, first, US test pilots and engineers, followed by their Canadian counterparts examined the updated hardware and software for the airplane in anticipation of a return to commercial flight sometime (reportedly) before the end of the year.

Now,. It's EASA's turn -- The European Union Aviation Safety Agency has now completed its test flights of the Boeing 737 MAX. These took place in Vancouver, Canada due to COVID-19 travel restrictions.

As the next step in its evaluation of the aircraft for return to service, EASA is now analyzing the data and other information gathered during the flights in preparation for the Joint Operations Evaluation Board (JOEB). The JOEB is scheduled to start next week in London, Gatwick in the United Kingdom.

EASA has been working steadily, in close cooperation with the FAA and Boeing, to return the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft to service as soon as possible, but only once they are convinced it is safe.

In the meantime, Boeing is said to be frantically preparing to get a huge number of idled airplanes back to flight status and to conduct the necessary pilot and operator training to insure knowledge of current operational procedures and allow a return to currency. It's going to be a mad dash once the FAA and other regulatory agencies sign off on getting the MAX back to work. More info to come...
