Boeing to issue safety advice on 737 MAX after Indonesia crash

Boeing’s first 737 MAX 8 rolls out of the final assembly building in Renton in December 2015. More than 200 MAXs are in service around the world

The 2-month-old Boeing 737 MAX 8 crashed into the Java Sea 13 minutes after takeoff from Jakarta.

Boeing Co. said on Wednesday it had issued a safety bulletin reminding pilots how to handle erroneous data from a key sensor in the wake of last week's crash in Indonesia.

The sensor keeps track of the angle of the aircraft nose relative to oncoming air to prevent the plane from stalling and diving.

As a result of continuing investigations into last week's crash of Lion Air flight 610, the US Federal Aviation Administration has issued an emergency airworthiness directive (AD) to operators of Boeing 737 MAX aircraft calling on them to address procedures in the event of pilots receiving erroneous angle of attack sensor information.

On the basis of the Oct 28 flight, Indonesian investigators said they'd provided recommendations to Boeing for distribution to airlines around the world about how to deal with a similar situation.

The warning is based on preliminary findings from the accident involving a Lion Air jetliner, the person said.

The agency said it would probe what caused the indicator problem and whether proper repairs were done - including replacing the faulty component, he added.

The angle of attack is incredibly important.

On the fatal flight, the plane hit the water at very high speed after it had been cleared to return to the airport minutes after becoming airborne.

Lion Air blamed airport staff for the incident, which did not cause any casualties, Efe news reported. Boeing's bulletin said it was directing flight crews to existing guidelines. If it proves true that the AoA sensor was indeed at fault, the investigation will reveal much about what the pilots knew and suspected when confronted with the situation, what their training was like, and what their responses to the incident not only were, but also should have been.

A DJPU statement said the audit will include a review of Lion Air's operating procedures, flight crew qualifications, and institutional cooperation.

While modern jetliners primarily operate on autopilot, the computerized system can disengage when airspeed indicators malfunction, forcing pilots to manually fly the aircraft. Aviation systems must account for possibility of misinterpretations of situations and foggy memories of procedures outlined in the manuals that come with these huge, complicated, and incredibly sensitive vehicles.

Both Boeing and the FAA are continuing to assist Indonesian officials in investigating the accident.

In addition, a system known as pitch trim can be changed to prompt nose-up or nose-down movement. One of the pilots had trimmed the plane to push the nose down while trying to climb after aborting a landing, the report said.
