A Boeing 737 MAX 10 takes off for the first time.

All previous flights of the Boeing 737 MAX 10 were made by the US manufacturer’s two prototypes, which feature a promotional sketch of the model.

Last Thursday, November 18, the Boeing 737 MAX 10 made its first flight test with registration N6055X (the registration is still in testing). The novelty is that the equipment is the first aircraft of a flying model using a complete sketch of a customer, in this case, United Airlines. The manufacturer shared this fact on his social networks.

The MAX 10 model, the largest Boeing 737 family aircraft ever built, is not yet fully certified and therefore cannot be operated by airlines. Boeing is speeding up test flights, but doesn’t expect certification until later this year (actually, that could be months away).

However, the December 2022 deadline is critical because all new aircraft certified after that date must comply with a new rule approved by the US Congress that establishes new cabin alerts. The MAX 10, for now, does not have these warnings and Boeing is still trying to get senators to postpone the deadline.

If this deadline is not changed, Boeing will have to modify the aircraft to comply with the new law, further delaying certification and operation, as the new warnings will require specific training for pilots. MAX family members.

GOL is also a customer for the MAX 10 model, with twelve currently on order, due for delivery between 2027 and 2030.
