Flight Tests Of The Boeing 737 Max As Part Of Certification Will Begin On June 29

Certification flight tests of the Boeing 737 MAX, which are not being operated after two planes of this model crashed, will begin on Monday, according to Reuters.

During the flights, the aircraft will demonstrate several maneuvers. Also, the modified MCAS (Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System) protection system will be tested, which failures led to both of the above-mentioned disasters.

The tests will take place mainly in the sky over the state of Washington and will last at least three days.

In December last year, it was announced that the production of Boeing 737 MAX aircraft was suspended. The operation of the aircraft of this model was temporarily stopped after two plane crashes. On March 10, last year, an Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 MAX crashed in Ethiopia, killing 157 people. On October 29, 2018, 189 people were killed in the crash of a similar model of Lion Air in Indonesia.
