FAA panel reviewing 737 MAX certification will take additional time

WASHINGTON, Aug 30 (Reuters) - The Federal Aviation Administration said on Friday a blue-ribbon panel of experts around the world will need a few more weeks to finish its review into the Boeing 737 MAX certification.

The team, which is reviewing the approval of the now grounded jet involved in two fatal crashes since October, is taking additional time to finish documenting its work and the FAA said it expects its recommendations in the coming weeks.

Boeing has said it hopes to complete a key certification test flight in the “September time frame.” (Reporting by David Shepardson Editing by Chris Reese)
