MONTREAL/CHICAGO (Reuters) - Global regulators are looking at "startle factors" that can overwhelm pilots as they consider revised protocols for the Boeing 737 MAX, Nicholas Robinson, the head of civil aviation for Transport Canada, told Reuters on Friday.
"What we need to do is ensure that the aircrew in the MAX are able to handle that environment," Robinson said in an interview with Reuters.
However, no training decisions can be made until Boeing submits software updates to the FAA for review and approval, Robinson said.
Transport Canada is closely aligned with the European Union Aviation Safety Agency on return to service demands and has also raised questions over the architecture behind the 737 MAX's angle of attack system.
