  • ‘Our airplanes are safe,’ Boeing says as officials push training

The advisory was issued after the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) held a review meeting with SpiceJet and Jet Airways, the two domestic airlines which operate this type of aircraft, on December 3.

The DGCA is monitoring on a daily basis the performance of Boeing 737 MAX aircraft apart from putting in place various measures to ensure there are no safety issues with these planes being operated in India, a senior official said Wednesday.

The former pilots, one of them a certified instructor, said the DGCA's recommendation could not be implemented as of now in India as there was neither a simulator for this variant of the 737 aircraft, nor could the set of conditions - that investigators suspect led to the Lion Air crash - be simulated on the available simulator. After Indonesian budget carrier Lion Air's Boeing 737 Max on October 29 soon after take off from Jakarta, killing all the 189 people on board, there have been concerns about lack of awareness of the functions of MCAS, a software on the B737 Max to prevent it from stalling.

Rusdi Kirana ordered a review of airline purchases in response to Boeing's statement last week focusing attention on piloting and maintenance topics related to the crash, Reuters reported on Monday.

Lion Air pilots flying the same plane on its penultimate flight a day earlier had experienced a similar problem of nose-down movements, but used a procedure to switch off the relevant system.

"This year, as we celebrate 50 years of safe and reliable service, we take great pride in introducing the first Boeing 737 Max 8 to our fleet", said Fabian Whorms, president of Cayman Airways. Boeing did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.

The Indian regulator said airlines must instruct the crew to divert to the nearest possible airport in case there is a MCAS defect in the flight. The crew in that case managed to shut off the system.

Verification flight should be done after rectification before undertaking any commercial flight if the aircraft had any MCAS related snag in flight, the instructions outlined.

Lion Air did not perform a test flight after conducting maintenance the night before the crash, according to the Indonesian report.
