On this episode of AvTalk, we welcome back The Air Current editor-in-chief John Ostrower for a wide-ranging conversation as we try to understand the effects of the novel coronavirus COVID-19 on the aviation industry. We also look at the state of the 737 MAX and the prospects for the aircraft’s return to service one year after the crash of Ethiopian flight 302 and one year into its worldwide grounding.
What’s next for aviation?
In our in-depth conversation with Jon Ostrower, we try to add context to the crisis facing the aviation industry and see how COVID-19 is fundamentally changing—or not—aviation as we know it. Although we recorded this episode on 10 March, prior to the restrictions put in place on Schengen area citizens traveling to the US, our conversation about possible risks and responses took the possibility of these additional measures into account.
What’s next for Boeing
Recording one year after the crash of Ethiopian flight 302 and the grounding of the 737 MAX, we also look at where Boeing stands in their quest to the airplane back in the air and what the future might hold for the company.
