The European pilots’ group (ECA) urged the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) to conduct its own thorough and independent review of the Boeing 737 Max before allowing the planes to fly again.

The group represents 38,000 European pilots, including those at airlines that have purchased the Boeing 737 Max, Norwegian Air Shuttle and Ryanair.

The group’s comments come as Regulators from across the globe met in Texas, to discuss a possible return to service of the grounded Boeing 737 MAX.

Boeing last week said it completed software changes to MCAS system and waiting for FAA certification to fly again.
