Norwegian boss, Bjørn Kjos, has tested the Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft’s new software and believes it seems “foolproof”.

‘’The new system seems foolproof even if you are not flying on autopilot, or if you do not turn off the autopilot if a problem occurs’’ Kjos wrote on Twitter on Wednesday night.

Kjos was in Seattle where he had met Boeing and discussed the problems associated with the 737 MAX 8 aircraft wrote E24 news. On Wednesday night, he told Twitter that he had been in an airplane simulator both with the new and old version of the computer system MCAS to see how the new system is working on errors.

It has been speculated that there was an error at MCAS that led to the plane crashes with the Max 8 aircraft in Indonesia and Ethiopia. After the air crash in Ethiopia in March, Boeing had recommended all airlines to ground their machines.

‘’I hope the aviation authorities will always have security in focus and not be dictated by politics. I would like to bring my family on boar.
