Boeing is making new 737 MAX software updates to fix computer problems

-

WASHINGTON, April 7 (Reuters). Boeing Co announced late Tuesday that two new software updates will be made to the flight control computer of the grounded 737 MAX to gain regulatory approval to resume flights after being grounded in five months after two fatal crashes.

The aircraft manufacturer said that one problem included hypothetical errors in the flight control computer’s microprocessor that could potentially result in an out of control stabilizer, while the other problem could cause the autopilot function to be disabled during the final approach. Boeing said the software updates will fix both problems.

The Federal Aviation Administration said Tuesday it was in contact with Boeing as it “continued to work on the 737 MAX’s automated flight control system.”
