Test Flight of Boeing’s grounded 737 MAX next week

NEW YORK: US regulators are getting close to undertaking a test flight of Boeing’s grounded 737 MAX and could schedule the key step for as soon as next week, two sources said Friday.

The long-delayed test flight by the Federal Aviation Administration is a critical next step in re-certifying the plane for service but the exact timing remains fluid, sources revealed.

The plane has been grounded globally last March following two deadly  crashes.
