The head of the American aviation authority FAA will make a two-hour test flight with the Boeing 737 MAX on Wednesday. The device has been on the ground worldwide since March last year.
FAA CEO Steve Dickson is a former military and commercial pilot. He is accompanied on board the aircraft by FAA and Boeing employees.
The plane will depart from King Country International Airport near Seattle, which is also known as Boeing Field, at 6:00 PM Dutch time and will land two hours later.
The test flight is a milestone for aircraft maker Boeing, which hopes that the aircraft can be used commercially again. Boeing has been working on modifications to the aircraft for more than a year.
In March last year, the Boeing 737 MAX was grounded worldwide after two aircraft of this type crashed in rapid succession in Indonesia and Ethiopia.
