Bosnian regulator clears 737 MAX

NEWS FLASH


The Bosnia and Herzegovina Civil Aviation Directorate has approved the Boeing 737 MAX to return to service and operate within its airspace. It includes both the 737-8 MAX and the 737-9 MAX jets. The regulator said that before these aircraft operate within Bosnia’s airspace, they must meet certain conditions set out by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). Last week, EASA itself declared the plane type safe to return to service in Europe. The Boeing 737 MAX was grounded worldwide in March 2019 following the second of two accidents within just six months, which together claimed 346 lives. The root cause of these tragic accidents was traced to software known as the MCAS (Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System), intended to make the plane easier to handle. However, the MCAS, guided by only one Angle of Attack (AoA) sensor, kicked in repeatedly if that sensor malfunctioned, pushing the nose of the aircraft downward multiple times. In both accidents, pilots finally lost control of their plane, resulting in a crash with total loss of aircraft.

    It'll take some time to recover the confidence of the Max but it should be fine. No planes have fallen yet from the sky since it resumed a couple of months ago.

    Could this be in preparation for FR launching SJJ flights? They have hundreds of MAX planes on order.

      Razlog je THY, 2019 su poceli koristiti B38M na jutarnjim letovima za SJJ prije no im je ukinut certifikat. I potencijalno RYR za BNX. [S.K.]

  6. Perfect for flydubai when the MAX gets the green light from the UAE too.
