It’s not possible to give an exact date as work progresses on safety fixes to the aircraft, Ali Bahrami, the Federal Aviation Administration’s associate administrator for aviation safety, said in an interview Wednesday at a conference in Cologne, Germany. The FAA has said that there’s no time frame to sign off on Boeing’s proposed fix for the jet. Muilenburg said last week on CNBC that he expected that the Max would be back in the air by year-end. The FAA isn’t the only regulator that holds sway over returning the Max to the skies. The agency is considering whether to require additional simulator training for flying the Max, as well as potential design changes, he said.
