Boeing will resume the production of its troubled 737 Max Airplane after months of non-operations
According to the aerospace company, it would restart production at a low rate as it implements more than a dozen initiatives focused on enhancing workplace safety and product.
The aerospace has not been in operation since March 2018 following two fatal crashes resulting in a total deaths of 346 passengers and crew members. Still the company continued to manufacture the airplane. However in December of 2009, the company announced its plans to stop producing at its Renton, Washington manufacturing plant.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has not cleared the airplane to return to passenger service. Investigators has however found some software glitches apart from the MCAS flight control system recognized as the cause of the fatal crashes.
During the temporary suspension, Boeing said the company’s mechanics worked together to make sure employees have everything they need for the building of the airplane.
”We’ve been on a continuous journey to evolve our production system and make it even stronger. These initiatives are the next step in creating the optimal build environment for the 737 MAX,” Vice President and general manager of the 737 program, Walt Odisho said.
