Aircraft manufacturer Boeing has been modifying the 737 Max plane since March 2019 so that various countries' regulators, including the DGCA, permit its passenger flight operations again.
The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration has faulted Boeing for not telling regulators for more than a year that a safety indicator in the Max cockpit didn't work.
Boeing is providing additional information to the Federal Aviation Administration in anticipation of a certification test flight, a key step in winning regulatory approval.
Boeing previously acknowledged that an alert system that was supposed to be a standard feature in the fleet 'was not operable on all airplanes'.
The mayor of Jacksonville Lenny Curry on Twitter confirmed of no casualties, saying 'all alive and accounted for.'
The forum, scheduled for May 23, aims to outline for civilian aviation regulators the US agency's process for returning the 737 MAX to service after the aircraft was grounded worldwide in mid-March.
American Airlines said it would scrap some 115 flights per day in the coming months because its fleet of Boeing 737 MAX planes is being grounded until August 19.
Aviation Minister Suresh Prabhu on Friday directed civil aviation secretary Pradeep Singh Kharola to review issues concerning Jet Airways, which has been operating with less than 10 planes.
SpiceJet made an announcement on Friday that it will induct 16 Boeing 737-800 NG aircraft on dry lease to bring down flight cancellations and expand the airline's international and domestic presence.
As the US-based Boeing struggles with an ongoing crisis involving its best-selling jetliner 737 MAX, the company's European rival Airbus announced that it has reached a deal to sell 300 passenger jets to Chinese airlines.
The development comes as the manufacturer struggles to cope with the fallout from both the Indonesia crash and another in Ethiopia this month.
More than 300 people perished in the two crashes of 737 MAX 8s that occurred shortly after takeoff in Indonesia in October and in Ethiopia earlier this month.
In a Tuesday memo to Transportation Inspector General Calvin Scovel, Chao said Boeing had requested an 'amended type certification' for the 737 MAX 8 in January 2012, which it received in March 2017.
According to the US Federal Aviation Administration, there are 387 Boeing 737 Max 8 jets in operation at 59 airlines worldwide, 74 of which are registered in the US.
US Federal Aviation Administration acting chief Daniel Elwell said the black box flight data recorders had been damaged.
The United States is one of the major last countries to have taken a decision to ground Boeing 737 Max 8 and 9 aircraft. These planes would be grounded till further orders.
The Boeing 737 crashed minutes after an early-morning takeoff from Addis Ababa, killing all eight crew and 149 passengers on board
The decision came days after a 737 MAX 8 aircraft operated by the Ethiopian Airlines crashed near Addis Ababa killing 157 people, including four Indians.
