The Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft was introduced last year, but now the manufacturers are warning about serious mistakes.
After the tragic air accident in Indonesia last week, Boeing issued a security notification to the users of the new 737 Max aircraft, reports the company in a press release, writes E24.
189 people lost their lives in the accident.
Now Boeing has introduced a new instruction manual warning against cockpit errors, they write in a statement on Twitter. It asks the crew to use existing guidelines for incorrect entry from the so-called attack angle sensor. The sensor is designed to keep the airflow in flight, but if it fails, it can cause a sudden drop of the airplane.
The airline manufacturer also instructs what pilots should do if the error occurs. These warnings should be based on preliminary findings from the accident.

The Boeing plane crashed a 737 Max 8 aircraft from the company Lion Air, and according to the Indonesian aviation authority it was only two months old.
The airline has previously been involved in a major accident, including a Boeing airplane, but with a 737-800 model. No one died in the accident.
The airline in Indonesia is the first major accident with this 737 model introduced in the commercial market last year. Reuters wrote in October that Boeing had received 4783 orders of the aircraft, of which 219 were delivered in late September.
Norwegian is one of the companies using the flight model and has 14 editions of the 737 Max 8 aircraft.
Norwegian says it is quite common for Boeing to send out updates on routines and routines, and in this case, Boeing has made recommendations as to which procedures can be performed if there is no error in a sensor that can send incorrect signals to, inter alia, the stabilizer.
– All our 737 Max 8 work as usual, and security always has absolute top priority. We keep regular contact with Boeing and follow their recommendations and instructions, writes Norwegian in an email to ABC News.
