  • Boeing (BA +1.5%) has completed 96 flights testing the performance of the 737 MAX with updated MCAS software for the plane's flight control system, CEO Dennis Muilenburg says.
  • "We continue to demonstrate that we’ve identified and met all certification requirements," the CEO said while speaking at the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas.
  • Boeing also is bringing representatives into MAX flight simulators and showing them how the modified flight control system will feel in the cockpit.
  • The company says representatives from two-thirds of the 50 airlines that have the MAX in their fleets have tested the new software in a simulator.
  • Boeing likely will submit its plan to fix the MAX to the FAA and other regulators within the next two weeks, CNBC reports; approval by the regulators would be expected to take several more weeks.
