According to the US FAA, about 106 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft are affected by an electronic problem. This problem also turned out to be more urgent than expected: No solution found yet. She added that the Federal Aviation Administration is working closely with the aircraft manufacturer.

The problem was “caused by the use of a layer of paint that may interfere with the ground paths. This grounding ensures that the electronic system will not be overloaded if the equipment is not properly isolated.” No accident was reported due to the defect.

Hundreds of people died in crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia. Just a few months ago, the devices were launched for use again.
US airlines in particular are now affected by the new problems, while air traffic is gradually recovering.
