US issues directive after Boeing alerts pilots following Indonesia crash

Global plane manufacturer Boeing has issued airlines new guidelines warning of a potentially faulty sensor that may have caused the Lion Air Flight 601 crash tragedy.

Boeing, which manufactured the Lion Air plane, issues safety-related bulletins, and had previously circulated instructions about what flight crews should do if sensors fail.

Indonesian accident investigators said on Monday that an airspeed indicator on the crashed jet was damaged for its last four flights, but United States authorities responded cautiously to suggestions of fleet-wide checks.

On the basis of the Oct 28 flight, Indonesian investigators said they'd provided recommendations to Boeing for distribution to airlines around the world about how to deal with a similar situation.

Aviation regulator DGCA has asked Jet Airways and SpiceJet to take corrective action to address possible issues with their Boeing 737 MAX planes that could lead to "significant altitude loss" of the aircraft, a senior official said Thursday.

On Wednesday, Indonesian officials said the doomed flight would be re-created at Boeing facilities in Seattle to see what role the sensor may have played. If the flow is disrupted by a plane going too slow or climbing too steeply, that can cause an aerodynamic stall and a plane will plummet.

The warning is based on preliminary findings from the accident involving a Lion Air jetliner, the person said. Simply put, it means that if there is an erroneous AOA input-one that indicates the aircraft has a high AOA and so is close to a stall-the aircraft system would respond by automatically bringing the aircraft nose down so as to increase the airspeed and prevent a stall.

Boeing has warned about improper readings from the plane's monitoring system - which have the potential to force the aircraft to take a sharp dive.

On the October 28 flight, from Bali to Jakarta, the pilot's and copilot's sensors disagreed. It is estimated that the global market will need 1,200 cargo carriers modified from standard aircrafts in the next 20 years, and the demand from Chinese carriers would account for about 33 percent of the global demand, according to a report issued by Boeing in September.

Safety investigators said the plane may have hit speeds of 600 miles per hour before hitting the water. "The big picture is the system keeps getting safer and safer, and it's still the safest form of transportation ever designed by humans", he said.

The FAA directive applies to about 250 Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft operating worldwide.
