Boeing has made fixes to its simulator software that mimics the flight experience of the 737 MAX aircraft involved in two fatal crashes. A spokesperson said on Friday that the company is providing additional information to improve operators.
Company spokesperson Gordon Johndroe; He said the changes will enable the simulator experience to be represented in different flight conditions, and the force loads applied to the manual trim wheel, which helps control the aircraft, will improve the simulation.

“Boeing is working closely with device manufacturers and regulators on these changes and improvements to ensure customer education is not disrupted,” Johndroe said. said.
The 737 MAX suffered another crash in March, just five months after the Ethiopian Airlines crash that killed 157 people. 189 people died in a similar accident on a Lion Airlines flight.
