Make 737 Max Great Again, As Boeing Plans To Resume Production Of The Troubled Aeroplane
Aircraft manufacturer, Boeing has said it will resume production of its troubled 737 Max Aircraft. The plane manufacturer plans to restart production despite the fact that the FAA hasn’t cleared it to carry passengers.
Boeing said it would restart production “at a low rate as it implements more than a dozen initiatives focused on enhancing workplace safety and product quality.”
“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,” according to Walt Odisho, vice president and general manager of the 737 program.
Boeing had continued manufacturing the 737 Max till December 2019. Then it made the decision to halt manufacturing of the plane at its Renton, Washington manufacturing plant.

The Boeing 737 Max has been grounded since March 2018 as a result of two fatal crashes. A total of 346 passengers and crew members perished in both crashes.
Accident investigators found numerous software glitches apart from the MCAS flight control system they reportedly fingered as the cause of the fatal crashes.
Boeing had said that its mechanics and engineers had worked together to make sure employees had all they needed to work on the plane.
The COVID19 pandemic and the crash have left Boeing in a difficult situation. The pandemic also crippled aviation travel and in turn, left carriers with a sharp drop in demand.
Its impact on Boeing has left the aerospace company planning to lay off about 7,000 of its employees. This is in addition to its previous plan of cutting its workforce by 10%.
