EU regulators gave Boeing a chance to show its troubled 737 MAX is safe to return to the skies Thursday (August 27), after more than a year grounded.
The European Union's air safety agency said it plans to start flight tests of the aircraft in Vancouver, Canada.
And Boeing won't have to wait long - the tests are due to start September 7.
It comes more than two months after the U.S. air safety regulator and Boeing completed certification test flights on the MAX....
A move seen as a key milestone towards its return to service.
The MAX was grounded in March last year, soon after two crashes in five months killed 346 people.
EU regulators said the re-design process for the plane is now sufficient to go forward with tests.
Boeing seems confident of success.
In July, the U.S. planemaker said MAX deliveries would resume in the fourth quarter.
