737 MAX 10 any updates?

Wed Oct 09, 2019 1:35 pm

There doesn't seem to be many updates when i search on the progress of the 737 MAX 10 prototype, it must be well progressed in the final production stage. Anybody got any pictures of where is it at?

Is it true it doesn't need any MCAS as it's longer and more stable?

The 737 MAX 10 will not have MCAS. It was also never planned to have it. It should be on the FAL by now.

Any pics circulating around of it on the FAL?

The fuselage arrived in Renton last spring sometime, I think they have the fuselage
in storage until RTS is acheived. Not sure the FAA would allow Boeing to begin a flight
test program until RTS is granted.

This may have been covered in another thread, but is there any info on how the certification authorities will treat the MAX10? Could it enter service while the 8 & 9 are still grounded?

While MCAS itself may not affect the 10, other issues have been discovered in the MAX since the grounding began. I believe that the non-MCAS changes being made will also apply to the 10. I don’t see why tests could not happen with the 10, but since changes will have to be made to it anyhow, and since it is also subject to the grounding, I don’t see much point for Boeing to proceed with tests at this point.

Yeap.

If EASA come back and say the trim wheel is too small and needs enlarged - that'll apply across the 737 series. Possibly including NG!

Been so long I forgot but did the Max 7 complete it's test program before the grounding?

I've seen pics of painted WN '7's in RNT but no idea when those will be ready to deliver

Since the wheel was made smaller for a reason on the NG, I don't think it can easily be enlarged. Any change would either be some kind of gearing or, more likely, training on the "roller coaster" procedure if it is demonstrated that it would be rare enough to need it under conditions that make it difficult to turn.

Is it actually a fact that the MAX 10 doesn't need or have MCAS or is this just speculation due to the length giving the stabilizer more power vs. the MAX 9 (which has MCAS)?
