The Boeing 737 Max is now cleared to fly again after a 20 month and 6 days long ban followed by two fatal crashes back in March, 2019.
Last week the Federal Aviation Agency Administrator Steve Dickson said that the agency was in the final stages of reviewing changes to the troubled Boeing 737 Max that would make it safe to return to the skies.
The agency will allow Boeing to resume delivery of new 737 Max aircraft, which will have the design changes in place.
However, the Airworthiness Certificate for these newly produced Max jets will be issued by the FAA instead of Boeing itself.
According to Boeing, this recertification process has cost the manufacturer more than $20 billion.
