Boeing to issue safety warning to pilots for 737 Max jets: Report

Boeing’s first 737 MAX 8 rolls out of the final assembly building in Renton in December 2015. More than 200 MAXs are in service around the world

The Chicago-based manufacturer said investigators probing the crash of Flight JT610, in which all 189 on board were killed, had found that one of the "angle of attack" sensors on the brand new plane had provided incorrect readings.

The warning prompted the US Federal Aviation Administration to issue its own emergency airworthiness directive, telling airlines with Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft to follow correct procedures if pilots receive erroneous information from an AOA sensor.

Attempts to fix the issues were unsuccessful, NTSC chairman Soerjanto Tjahjono has said, with the pilots of the 737's second-to-last flight experiencing conflicting information despite an AOA sensor being replaced.

Aviation regulator DGCA has asked Jet Airways and SpiceJet to take corrective action to address possible issues with their Boeing 737 MAX planes that could lead to "significant altitude loss" of the aircraft, a senior official said Thursday.

"Over the last 40 years, Boeing and Chinese partners have built deep relations in all industrial chains, including the research of new technologies, parts manufacturing as well as flight maintenance and modification", the statement said. One of the critical ways a plane determines if a stall is imminent is the angle of attack measurement. However, in rare instances, accidents have been caused by what investigators call a "startle factor". However, the Times noted, there has been no evidence of widespread problems with airspeed indicators in the Max 8 fleet. According to NBC News, the warning revolves around what pilots should do if the plane gives an erroneous reading from a sensor.

An angle of attack sensor had been changed by mechanics on the ground in Bali the day before the crash, Indonesia's National Transportation Safety Committee (KNKT) has said.

On the fatal flight, the plane hit the water at very high speed after it had been cleared to return to the airport minutes after becoming airborne.

"I would definitely be looking at the man-machine interface and how pilots respond", said Cox, a former airline pilot who flew earlier versions of the 737 and specialized at the NTSB in cockpit actions.

Officials have now said that the incident will be thoroughly investigated.

Some modern aircraft have systems created to correct the posture of the aircraft automatically to keep flying safely.

And in this case the procedure for dealing with the problem it is what is called a "memory item" - pilot's commit them to memory.

Boeing has delivered 219 Max planes - the latest and most advanced 737 jets - since the models made their commercial debut a year ago with a Lion Air subsidiary. The aircraft system that handles the nose up and down movement (called stabilizer trim system) will put the nose down in response to the erroneous AOA sensor. There were more than 180 people on board.
