Boeing’s Max can fly in Canada this week
The Boeing 737 Max can return to Canadian airspace beginning Wednesday, officials said, concluding nearly two years of government review after the aircraft was involved in two deadly crashes that saw the planes grounded worldwide.
Transport Canada said Monday that the planes will be permitted to fly as long as they meet conditions specified by the agency last month, including allowing pilots to disable a faulty warning system that was found to be central to the two deadly crashes in 2018 and 2019 that left 346 people dead.
The measures go beyond those announced by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration in November, which required Boeing to make changes to the computer systems inside the plane and required pilots to undergo training in flight simulators.
The planes have been grounded since March 2019.
