 Boeing has disclosed that 737 MAX 8 is not suitable for certain Airports because of its high fear of heat.


According to Bloomberg on April 12, the Bole International Airport in Addis Ababa is 7657 feet above sea level (about 2333 meters), belonging to this category of airport. Higher altitudes require longer runways and faster takeoffs. The height of Ethiopias airport is not listed as a factor in the crash of Aeronautic Flight 302. However, a 737 pilot said this could worsen the situation, as the aircrafts performance deteriorated at high altitudes.

Reported that recently released data showed that the pilots of the Aeronautic crash aircraft did not reduce the speed of 737MAX8 aircraft as required after take-off. Preliminary reports of the crash said that due to sensor failures, the aircrafts stall-proof system pushed the nose down less than two minutes after takeoff. The pilot struggled to control the plane as it rushed to the ground at 575 miles an hour.

Robert Mark, commercial pilot and editor of Aircraft Magazine, said: The faster the aircraft flies, the greater the air force acting on the wing and control surface, the more power the pilot needs to pull the control device.

A Boeing spokesman said that Addis Ababa airport could handle large aircraft because of its long runway.

According to Bloomberg, in a case filed with the U.S. International Trade Commission in 2017, Boeing referred to the performance of its 737MAX8 aircraft.

At that time, Boeing accused Bombardier of threatening its 737-700 and MAX7 by unfair competition. By pointing out the limitations of MAX8, Boeing tried to retain the market share of MAX7 and 737-700.

According to the report, in a statement filed in the lawsuit, Boeing said: 737MAX7 has better performance in challenging the airport. In particular, 737MAX7 can serve certainhigh/hotairports and operate beyond restricted airports.

Bigger 737 variants cannot be used at so-calledhigh/hotairports, the briefing said. Because of the combined effects of runway length, elevation, temperature, humidity and other environmental conditions, some American airports are not suitable for UAV8. Airline consultant Bob Mann says airlines usually use smaller, earlier versions of Boeing Jet 737-700 at higher altitudes because the climbing speed of such aircraft is usually better than that of MAX8. Reported that altitude and heat are likely to have no impact on the 737MAX8 crash. Thomas Demetrio, a Chicago attorney who sued Boeing for Lion Airlines, said he would not add altitude or heat to the lawsuit unless investigators or his experts said these factors were proximate.
