Boeing to issue safety advice on 737 MAX after Indonesia crash

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

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

Boeing said in a statement received at China's largest air show in Zhuhai that its bulletin to airlines underscored "existing flight crew procedures" created to address circumstances where information coming into the cockpit from the sensors was wrong.

Boeing issued a special bulletin Wednesday addressing a sensor problem flagged by Indonesian safety officials investigating the crash of a Lion Air 737 that killed 189 people last week.

The US planemaker said investigators looking into the Lion Air crash had found that one of the "angle of attack" sensors on the aircraft had provided erroneous data. If the angle is too extreme it can cause the wings to lose lift and the aircraft to stall.

Boeing has issued a warning to airlines using its 737 MAX planes after a sensor failure was identified as a potential cause of the crash of a passenger flight near Indonesia.

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

Boeing has more than 4,500 orders for the airliners, which feature larger engines, more aerodynamic wings and an upgraded cockpit with larger glass displays.

Earlier this week, investigators said the plane's flight data recorder showed that an airspeed indicator malfunctioned during last week's fatal flight as well as three previous flights.

An overview of the 737 MAX flight manual revision being issued by the FAA.

Representatives of 737 Max operators, Singapore Airlines offshoot SilkAir, Garuda Indonesia and Canada's WestJet, said they had not yet received a bulletin from Boeing, Reuters reports.

The Lion Air 737 Max 8 speared into the coastal waters off Java on October 29, just 13 minutes after takeoff. The committee said the pilots were dealing with an erroneous airspeed indication.

"When there was a problem, the pilot would write it down and the mechanic would do (a repair).Then the plane would be declared airworthy".

Around the world, over 200,000 of these exact planes are now in use.

Safety investigators said the plane may have hit speeds of 600 miles per hour before hitting the water. 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.

The airline became the first Canadian commercial operator to take delivery of such planes last year, saying at the time that it had 50 scheduled to come in the next five years. They are now combing the seas for the voice recorder.

Certainly, Indonesian search and rescue officials had trouble locating the wreck, despite encountering a large amount of wreckage in the four days leading up to the discovery of the fuselage.
