- In addition, because all the jets will have been parked for at least six months by the time final clearance is given, each will require extensive maintenance work on the engines and other systems, followed by a couple of check flights to make sure everything is working well
Boeing said Tuesday it will begin hiring a few hundred temporary employees at Moses Lake to work on the grounded 737 MAX fleet and prepare the planes for return to service once regulators give clearance for the jets to fly again.
For the new temporary hires, Boeing is looking for avionics technicians, aircraft mechanics, airframe and powerplant mechanics, and aircraft electricians. The company will provide paid housing and a meal allowance.
When regulators finally clear the 737 MAX to return to service, all the grounded airplanes worldwide will need to have installed a new software package designed to fix the MAX's flawed flight control system — the Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS).
