FAA refuses Boeing 737 Max wiring proposal

United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has rejected The Boeing Co’s proposal not to relocate or modify the wiring in its 737 Max airplanes, FAA chief Steve Dickson confirmed on Wednesday, adding that the next step is up to the airplane manufacturer.

According to earlier reports, in its initial proposal to the FAA, Boeing allegedly suggested the wiring bundles should not be altered, as they do not pose a safety risk. The regulators expressed concern over wiring bundles possibly being a risk of a short circuit, with the FAA reiterating the aircraft will return to service after all safety-related issues are resolved.

Back in January, 737 Max production was shut-down, after the plane model carrying 157 persons, crashed on its way from Ethiopia to Kenya last year.
