The Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft was introduced last year, but now manufacturers are warning of serious mistakes.
Following the tragic airborne accident in Indonesia last week, Boeing issued a safety alert to users of the new 737 Max aircraft, the company reports in a press release, E24 writes.
189 people lost their life in an accident.
Boeing has now introduced a new caution guide for defects in the cockpit, they say in a statement on Twitter. He asked the crew to use the existing guidelines due to incorrect entry from the so-called sensor angle of the attack. The sensor is designed to maintain airflow during the flight, but if it fails, it can cause a sudden fall of the aircraft.
The aircraft manufacturer also tells what pilots should do if an error occurs. These warnings should be based on preliminary findings from the accident.

Boeing airplane was 737 Max 8 aircraft from Lion Air, and according to the Indonesian aviation body it had only two months.
The airline had previously been involved in a major accident, including the Boeing aircraft, but with the 737-800. Nobody died in the accident.
The airline in Indonesia is the first major accident involving this 737 model, which was introduced to the trading market last year. In October, Reuters wrote that Boeing received 4783 aircraft orders, of which 219 were delivered by the end of September.
Norway is one of the companies that uses the flight model and has 14 releases of 737 Max 8 aircraft.
Norwegian states that it is fairly common for Boeing to send routine updates and procedures, and in this case Boeing has submitted recommendations on which procedures can be adopted if there is a failure of the sensor which may, among other things, send the wrong signals to the stabilizer.
– All of our 737 Max 8 work as usual, and security always has the absolute highest priority. We regularly contact Boeing and comply with their recommendations and instructions, Norwegian writes in an e-mail message to ABC News.
