FAA Administrator Steve Dickson told Reuters in a statement that he expects “this process will be finished in the coming days, once the agency is satisfied that Boeing has addressed” safety issues involved in two fatal crashes that killed 346 people. – Advertisement – Boeing declined to comment.The ungrounding would be a vital step in a still-arduous path to recovery for Boeing, plunged into its worst-ever crisis by the crashes and the worldwide grounding of its best-selling plane in March 2019.“The FAA continues to engage with aviation authorities around the world as they prepare to validate our certification decision,” Dickson said.- Advertisement – A Boeing 737 MAX jet lands near grounded 737 MAX planes following Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) test flight at Boeing Field in Seattle, Washington on June 29, 2020.Jason Redmond | AFP | Getty Images “As I have said many times before, the agency will take the time that it needs to thoroughly review the remaining work. Even though we are near the finish line, I will lift the grounding order only after our safety experts are satisfied that the aircraft meets certification standards.”Following the FAA green light, airlines must complete software updates and fresh pilot training, a process that will take at least 30 days, before the planes can return to the skies.Southwest Airlines LUV.N, the world’s largest Max operator, has said it would take several months to comply with the FAA requirements and that it does not plan to schedule flights on the aircraft until the second quarter of 2021.The grounding has cost the U.S. planemaker billions, hobbled its supply chain, and triggered investigations that faulted Boeing and the FAA for a lack of transparency and weak oversight during the jet’s development, among other problems.A Justice Department criminal investigation is ongoing.
