FAA Issues Emergency Order For Boeing 737 MAX 8s & 9s

Lion Air crash Black box reveals plane had airspeed problems on final four flights

The Boeing company confirmed the information about ezine operators of Boeing 737 Max warnings about the operation of the aircraft in the event of a failure in the sensor of the angle of attack (AOA).

Boeing said that the Indonesian National Transportation Safety Committee had "indicated that Lion Air flight 610 experienced erroneous input from one of its AOA (angle of attack) sensors".

The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has asked Jet Airways and SpiceJet to take corrective measures to address any possible issues with their Boeing 737 Max aircraft that could lead to significant altitude loss.

The announcement follows analysis that Boeing has done since the crash of Lion Air flight JT610 last week into the sea off Java.

Airline safety experts said pilots are trained to handle a plane safely if crucial sensors fail, while backup systems are usually in place as well.

The Lion Air crash was the first involving the type of plane, which airlines introduced into service previous year.

Indonesia's Garuda airlines said it had not received any bulletins from Boeing, either. The malfunction can cause the computers to erroneously detect a mid-flight stall in airflow, triggering a dive to regain speed to keep flying.

Lion Air Group's Managing Director, Captain Daniel Putut Kuncoro Adi, told CNN Lion Air strictly follow Boeing's guidance for operating the 737 MAX 8s, as laid out in the maintenance manual book. The device was replaced in Bali after pilots reported a problem with airspeed reading, the Indonesian transportation safety regulator said Wednesday. The single-aisle family is Boeing's biggest source of profit.

The sensor - which helps the plane's computers determine if its nose is too high in the air - had been the cause of problems on the aircraft's last four flights before the crash. They were flown to the capital later Wednesday evening aboard a different aircraft. But the urgency of a fatal accident can trigger a flurry of such notices.

If there is an "uncommanded nose-down stabilizer trim" on the Max, pilots can counteract it by pushing a switch on their control yoke. In addition, a system known as pitch trim can be changed to prompt nose-up or nose-down movement. In the early days of the jet age, the elevator trim system was linked to several accidents.

Such an issue arose in 2016 at Rostov-on-Don Airport in Russia when a FlyDubai 737-800 nosed over and slammed into the runway at a steep angle, according to an interim report by Russian investigators.

United Technologies Corp. supplies the angle-of-attack sensors and indicator for the 737 Max, according to Airframers.net. All 62 people on board died.
