WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - US officials expect to receive the software update for the Boeing 737 Max series in the coming weeks and will subject it to a rigorous safety review, the Federal Aviation Administration said in a statement on Monday.

"The FAA expects to receive Boeing's final package of its software enhancement over the coming weeks for approval," the statement said. "Time is needed for additional work by Boeing as the result of an ongoing review of the 737 MAX Flight Control Systems to ensure that Boeing has identified and appropriately addressed all pertinent issues."
