U.S. FAA to brief international regulators on status of Boeing 737 MAX

WASHINGTON, Sept 17 (Reuters) - Federal Aviation Administration chief Steve Dickson has invited about 50 aviation safety regulators from around the world to a Sept. 23 informal briefing in Montreal on the status of the grounded Boeing 737 MAX, according to an email seen by Reuters.

The FAA has been reviewing proposed software and training changes from Boeing Co for its best selling plane that has been grounded since March in the aftermath of two fatal crashes in five months. Dickson’s email said the FAA is working to provide regulators with “useful information as you make your individual decisions on safely returning your fleets to service.” The meeting is taking place in connection with the International Civil Aviation Organization World Aviation Forum.
