The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has told Boeing to revise instructions for inspections of the 737 MAX 9.

A statement has been put out on social media by the regulator, taking a hard stance on the safety aspect given the events last weekend.

Without further ado, let’s get into it…

In the statement, the FAA said the following on the Boeing 737 MAX 9 inspections:

“Every Boeing 737-9 MAX with a plug door will remain grounded until the FAA finds each can safely return to operation”.

“To begin this process, [the manufacturer] must provide instructions to operators for inspections and maintenance”.

“Boeing offered an initial version of instructions yesterday which they are now revising because of feedback received in response”.

“Upon receiving the revised version of instructions from [the manufacturer], the FAA will conduct a thorough review”.

This will come as yet another blow to the American planemaker, who are looking to solve this issue as quickly as possible.

However, as expected, the FAA is being strict and ensuring that all instructions are provided to the highest level of safety.

All eyes will be on further developments of this in due course. All of United Airlines’ Boeing 737 MAX 9 aircraft have remained grounded following the discovery of loose bolts in the door plugs, which has caused significant concern within the industry.
