McAllister said: Thank Lindblad for his leadership and unremitting support of the Boeing-737MAX project over the past 12 months, during which he faced and responded to a series of the most difficult challenges, which we are facing at any time. Eric worked in Boeing for 34 years. I have always admired him. Jenks will accept the position to take charge of the project.
At present, Boeing 737MAX aircraft has been grounded in the United States and other countries after two air crashes. Since March, about 20 countries have closed their airspace to the aircraft, and many airlines have suspended Boeing 737 MAX8 flights.
The Federal Aviation Administration issued a ban on the use of the aircraft. During the investigation of the cause of the accident, it was found that the malfunction may occur during the operation of the Mobile Characteristic Enhancement System (MCAS). At present, Boeing is eliminating these shortcomings and updating its flight training program.
