Pilots from the u.s. aviation authority, FAA must evaluate the changes Boeing has made in the software.
the Aircraft has since last year been subject to the ban because of two fatal accidents.
In Indonesia crashed an aircraft of this type down in October 2018. Here, the deaths of 189 persons.
In march 2019, a second boeing 737 aircraft crashed in Ethiopia. Here were 157 people killed.

A report has shown that inadequate pilottræning and errors in the aircraft's software was to blame in the crash in Ethiopia.
the Error was in the system, MCAS, which should prevent the so-called grayling. It occurs when a plane loses buoyancy due to poor speed. It causes the aircraft's nose to turn upwards. But grayling should be immediately prevented, for the plane not to crash.
Though Monday's test flight is an important step, says the FAA, there is still a long process ahead before Boeing even top selling type of aircraft can once again be seen in the sky.
in addition to the MAX-planes keeps the thousands of other planes also provide in airports around the world in these months. It is, however, first and foremost, coronakrisen, which has led to a significant reduction in air traffic.
