Re­port: Europe near de­ci­sion on 737 Max

Baltimore Sun - - BONUS PUZZLE PAGE -

BER­LIN — Europe’s avi­a­tion reg­u­la­tor is clos­ing in on a de­ci­sion to al­low the Boe­ing 737 Max to re­turn to the air af­ter it was grounded world­wide fol­low­ing two deadly crashes, ac­cord­ing to a re­port Fri­day.

The Euro­pean Union Avi­a­tion Safety Agency’s ex­ec­u­tive direc­tor, Pa­trick Ky, is sat­is­fied that changes to the jet have made it safe enough to re­turn to the skies be­fore the end of the year, Bloomberg re­ported.

He was quoted as say­ing “our anal­y­sis is show­ing that this is safe, and the level of safety reached is high enough for us.” Bloomberg re­ported that Ky said the de­vel­op­ment of a fur­ther sen­sor will take 20 to 24 months, and the agency had dis­cussed with Boe­ing “that with the third sen­sor, we could reach even higher safety lev­els.”
