The US aircraft manufacturer, Boeing introduced a revamped model of MCAS flight software for the 737 MAX aircraft, due to international rescinding of Boeing MAX model following two recent deadly crashes which snatch almost 350 people.
The company is now focussing on the pacification of the safety concerns about its best-selling aircraft model which recently involved with deadly crashes, as well as attempting to check the rolling out of safety based software for fixing the stall-prevention application, after being approved by the Federal Aviation Administration.
The steering Characteristics Augmentation System based (MCAS) flight control software was installed on the 737 MAX due to getting the privilege of forcing power of heavier engines to shift the placement of the engines. It is integrated to push the nose of the plane down if it can detect the risk factor of stalling. Along with refurbishing, the MCAS will no longer work to input from a single perspective of attack sensor, only while both of two sensors will agree in the margin of error, it will potentially react.
The pilot will be warned while the right and left AOA sensors will contrasting each other with a “disagree light”. Boeing will no longer accuse the airlines of installing this specific feature.
The latest refurbished version of MCAS will not continue to attempt to override the decision of pilot and will involve only once, as well as it has not been integrated with the sufficient power to prevent the actions of the flight crew. The pilots will always have the capacity to override MCAS and the ability to control the airplane manually.
Boeing has also modified their potential training module for the pilots to efficiently flying the MAX to provide them an “ enhanced understanding” of the systems, along with MCAS and related proceedings. This will be a computerized training programme.
Pilots not assessed to fly the 737 must complete a minimum of 21 days of trainer-led training along with classroom and settings controlling training. Vice president of Boeing, Mike Sinnett who handles the product strategy of the aircraft manufacturing firm told the reporters that fix was not released as they were required to confirm the right strategy. After receiving the approval from the Federal Aviation Administration, Boeing will take almost one hour for installing and can be twisted as soon as the company receives Federation Aviation Administration approval.
