Air Force Orders Review of Planes, Flight Training

Air Force commanders will inspect all aircraft and review pilot training procedures under an order from Chief of Staff David Goldfein, CNN reported.

The U.S. and other countries have grounded the Boeing 737 Max 8 after two recent crashes. The autopilot systems and pilot training procedures have come under attack.

The Air Force does not fly the 737 Max 8, and the steps are “precautionary,” the service said.

“At this time, the Air Force has had no indication of problems with Air Force aircraft similar to what has been reported with the Max,” Air Force spokeswoman Ann Stefanek told Military.com.
