Boeing issues bulletin on 737 Max planes after one crashed in Indonesia

Lion Air jet had damaged airspeed indicator on last 4 flights Report

Boeing said on Wednesday it had issued a safety bulletin reminding pilots how to handle erroneous data from a sensor in the wake of the Lion Air crash.

'The investigation into Lion Air flight 610 is ongoing and Boeing continues to co-operate fully and provide technical assistance at the request and under the direction of government authorities investigating the accident, ' Boeing said.

The airplane manufacturer said in a statement Wednesday that Indonesia's National Transportation Safety Committee has indicated the crashed Boeing 737 MAX 8 plane had "erroneous input from one of its AOA sensors".

On Tuesday, Boeing issued a bulletin to all airlines and pilots who operate the 737 MAX.

Aviation regulator, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), had asked Jet Airways and SpiceJet to take corrective action to address possible issues with their Boeing 737 MAX planes, which could lead to "significant altitude loss" of the aircraft, a senior official said on Thursday.

American said it was issuing similar communications to its pilots to emphasize the existing protocols.

The warning is based on preliminary findings from the accident involving a Lion Air jetliner, the person said. However, the Times noted, there has been no evidence of widespread problems with airspeed indicators in the Max 8 fleet. Pilots flying with an AOA sensor generating erroneous inputs to the system can experience the inability to engage the aircraft's autopilot system, among other problems.

United Technologies Corp. supplies the angle-of-attack sensors and indicator for the 737 Max, according to Airframers.net.

On that October 28 flight, from Bali to Jakarta, the pilot's and copilot's sensors disagreed by about 20 degrees.

The plane hit the water at very high speed just 13 minutes after take-off from Jakarta.

"Especially if you have a crew that's confused and doesn't know what's going on".

Indonesia's Transportation Ministry said it would investigate how the Boeing passenger plane damaged its left wing on the runway. Indonesian officials say that all 11 such aircraft have been tested and declared safe to fly.

Investigators are likely focused on how a single sensor's failure resulted in a faulty command that didn't take into account information from a second sensor, said John Cox, CEO of Safety Operating Systems. The only way to prevent this, is for the pilot to intervene and manually deactivate the system.

Over 200 737 Max jets are already in use in commercial aviation, Bloomberg added, though Boeing has orders for 4,500 more.

"Whenever appropriate, Boeing, as part of its usual processes, issues bulletins or makes recommendations regarding the operation of its aircraft". "The tariffs are pushing Boeing to start local production", Bai said.
