Boeing asks FAA for MAX 7 certification exemption over Anti-ice issue

Boeing urges 737 MAX inspections for possible loose bolt

According to the US Federal Aviation Administration, Boeing is seeking an exemption from certain certification standards for its 737 MAX 7 aircraft due to an issue with the engine anti-icing system.

According to an FAA notification sent on December 4, the company, which has intended to begin Max 7 deliveries next year, requested interim exemptions in November as part of its campaign to gain the type’s certification.


Boeing is working on a permanent repair. It is unknown how the issue would influence the Max 7’s certification process, but the exemption request makes it obvious that the company requires further FAA approvals.

As it worked to design adjustments to prevent overheating, the US corporation sought an exemption from certification regulations relating to “the engine nacelle inlet structure and engine anti-ice system on the Model 737-7 airplane” through May 31, 2026.


The FAA has recently authorized the MAX 10 model for flight testing with the granting of a type inspection authorization, despite the problems with the 737-7’s certification.
