FAA Reportedly Plans To Invite Pilots To Test Boeing MAX Software

The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration would invite pilots from airlines around the world to test changes that Boeing is making to the flight-control software on the grounded 737 Max jet. It would be a part of the process to recertify the aircraft for flight following two fatal crashes, according to the reports.

The FAA did not disclose a firm schedule for the tests, the reports said.

All Boeing 737 MAX aircrafts, including the 8 and 9 variants, were grounded by the Federal Aviation Administration from March 13 following crashes in Ethiopia and Indonesia killing 346 people in total.

BA closed Thursday's regular trading at $354.41, up $14.42 or 4.24 percent.
