WestWind announces the Passing of William Taylor (WWA944)

It is with sadness that I learned this morning of the passing of William Taylor, (WWA944) one of our line pilots in Cincinnati. His daughter Lisa replied to an activity request. We are not sure what happened, but I can say that his last flight was on July 31, 2019 and was just enough to advance him to the rank of Senior Command Captain+2. It appears that he passed away on September 26, 2019.

Your dad had acquired 2,001.2 hours of simulated flight with our airline which shows a substantial amount of committed time to our group. Your dad was also one of our old members as he joined on July 3, 2004. He last flew a flight on July 31 of this year. Again, we wish you and all of Bill’s family clear skies and favorable winds. We will continue to hold him and his family in our prayers.

American Extends 737-MAX Grounding to 1st Quarter of 2020

American Airlines (AA) announced and indicated today that their return to operation of the B737-MAX is being extended until August as opposed to June as was originally planned and intended. The FAA stated that the process continues but still maintains it's prohibition for the aircraft, in a letter to Civil Aviation Authorities as of March 20,2019. The reason was that the investigations of both the Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines had developed new information indicating some similarities between the two accidents. The order still remains in effect.

Santa Ana, CA -- 8 October 2019... EASA (EU) FAA counterparts are currently evaluating the modifications to software submitted by Boeing to the FAA as the European Union considers returning the 737- MAX to flight status in the European Union. EASA officials are saying that the process of evaluation is on-going. Boeing and the FAA appear to want a simultaneous return to service (RTS) as the process moves forward. Current thinking is that the 737-MAX will return to service in the last quarter of 2019 or the first quarter of 2020. The FAA still must work with the air authorities in Brazil, China, Canada, and Russia in their quest to put the 737-MAX back into the air.

Santa Ana, CA -- 14 November 2019 .... Boeing, the FAA, and EASA are looking at returning the MAX to service in the first quarter of 2020. Boeing also received news about wing cracks in the 737 NGX series. Inspections of the NGX have unearthed the problem in the wings. Aircraft are being inspected and grounded as the problem is found in each aircraft.
