Simulator coaching stays an “attainable possibility” for Canadian Boeing 737 MAX pilots. However, it’s too early to say whether or not it could be obligatory, a Transport Canada official stated on Thursday night time, additional distancing the regulator from earlier remarks by the nation’s transport minister.
“It will be untimely not seeing what Boeing has proposed but to find out if simulator coaching will in truth be included,” stated Nicholas Robinson, the regulator’s director general, civil aviation, instructed reporters on a convention name following a gathering of worldwide regulators in Texas.
Canada’s Transport Minister Marc Garneau referred to as in April for pilots to obtained simulator coaching for Boeing’s software program repair. Garneau informed Reuters on Wednesday that whereas “there’s a sturdy argument for simulators, let’s see what the ultimate bundle is proposed that has the settlement of the FAA and that’s the results of them certifying it.”
