Some Boeing 737 MAX aircraft have electrical system problems.
16 Boeing customers received a recommendation from the manufacturer to check Boeing 737 MAX aircraft for a possible electrical system problem before allowing them to operate commercial flights. The recommendation was made to allow the verification of the existence of a component of the power supply system.
Southwest Airlines, American Airlines, United and Alaska Airlines detained some of the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft on the ground, about a third of the MAX aircraft in service operating worldwide.
"We are working closely with the US Federal Aviation Administration on this production issue. We will also inform our customers of the affected aircraft and provide instructions on appropriate corrective action. ”, Boeing said.
We remind you that on February 24, The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has issued a new Airworthiness Directive (AD) on Boeing 737 NG and MAX aircraft after receiving several reports of cracks in the front door stop assembly.
The new directive, in force since March 29, 2021, refers to the aircraft that are part of the Boeing 737 NG family, as well as the family Boeing 737 MAX and affects 1.075 aircraft registered in the United States. Also, The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will monitor every flight of Boeing 737 MAX aircraft to verify the performance of the MAX fleet as the aircraft return to operational service.
