His last known medical examination was in February.

United Airlines, American Airlines and Southwest Airlines announced Friday that they will continue hiring their fleets of 737 Max aircraft until the beginning of March, even though the aircraft was released by the regulators for earlier re-commissioning (USA Today). In the interest of safety, the FAA is considering engaging in the design of new aircraft from the outset, as the administrator Stephen Dickson said in an interview (The Wall Street Journal).
