Boeing is slated to start a series of test flights Monday that could play an important role in returning its troubled 737 MAX jet to the skies, according to reports.
The flights will reportedly help the Federal Aviation Administration determine whether Boeing has done enough to fix the jet’s safety problems in the 15 months since it was grounded following two crashes that killed 346 people.
The certification test, set to take place over at least three days in Washington state, will focus on the stall-prevention software that played a key role in both crashes, Reuters reported. The first flight is set to take off Monday following several hours of briefing, according to the news agency.
