Boeing Plans 737 MAX Software Update Within 6-8 Weeks

30 November 2018
Reuters reports that The Boeing Company is planning to update the software on its 737 MAX jets, which “could block the recently modified anti-stall system, known as MCAS, from continuously running until the plane hits its nose-down limit.” The article adds that this problem may have contributed to the Lion Air crash last month. The update could be launched in six to eight weeks, although Boeing has not finalized its plans for the fix.
