China Suspends Airworthiness Certificate for Boeing 737 Max Jet
March 26, 2019
NEW DELHI (BLOOMBERG) - China suspended a so-called airworthiness certificate for Boeing Co's 737 Max jet, saying it needs to review a proposed modification before determining whether the plane is safe to fly after two recent crashes.
The move raises the possibility of the Max being kept out of China's skies should authorities there deem a fix for software linked to the disasters inadequate.
The decision was taken in light of uncertainty surrounding the model and an anti-stall system that's the focus of a probe into the loss of an Ethiopian Airlines plane on March 10, according to the Civil Aviation Administration of China.
