The U.S Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has issued its first Airworthiness certificate for a Boeing 737 MAX since the grounding of MAX in March 2019.
The FAA issued the certificate on 30 Nov for a newly built 737MAX after March 2019.
Unlike type certificate which apply to all particular aircraft model, Airworthiness certificate is applicable only to a specific aircraft.
FAA issues Airworthiness Certificates to newly-manufactured aircraft prior to delivery to customers.
Boeing has about 450 newly built Boeing 737MAXs since March 2019, to be certified before being delivered to customers.
On 18 Nov, FAA lifted a 20-month-old grounding order on the MAX, which cleared Airlines to resume flights with 737MAX.
Boeing has planes worth of about $16 billion on backlog.
