Boeing Co validated Wednesday it will make a security function standard on its now-grounded 737 MAX that might have warned earlier of problems that possibly contributed in 2 recent crashes.
The company said in a statement will make the “Angle of Attack disagree” inform a standard feature on the 737 MAX and included it can be retrofitted on existing planes.
The company stated in the future it will not charge customers who select another security feature understood as the AOA indicator alternative.
Legislators on Wednesday questioned why Boeing had actually charged extra for some security functions. Boeing is launching information of its proposed software upgrade to its anti-stall system later Wednesday.
