Last week, we identified 37 questions for the Boeing 737 MAX program that are awaiting answers. Today, we’ll take a look at some key questions and provide our thoughts on what could happen. The short answer is that things will get worse for Boeing in the near term. We’ll group some questions by category.
The Re-Certification Process
The business aviation world remains US-market centric, with about 1/2 of the world market, and the National Business Aircraft Association’s Business Aircraft Convention and Exhibition (NBAA-BACE) will get underway in Las Vegas early next week. We can expect an interesting show, with several new model reveals anticipated.
Gulfstream is expected to launch a new long-range flagship to replace the venerable G650ER at the show. A three story scaffolding is under construction near their static display, a clear indication that something big is happening.
Pilatus is holding a press conference on their latest upgrade, Honda may launch a new jet, and with a proliferation of new aircraft over the last couple of years, some new models will make their NBAA debuts. It is looking like an interesting show, and AirInsight will be covering the key events, so stay tuned.
