The Latest: Ethiopian airline defends pilots’ training


NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — The Latest on the Ethiopian plane crash (all times local):

7:15 p.m.

Ethiopian Airlines says its pilots went through all the extra training required by Boeing and the U.S. aviation regulator to fly the 737 Max 8 jet that crashed this month, killing all 157 passengers.

CEO Tewolde Gebremariam said Thursday that the airline’s pilots completed the training meant to help them shift from an older model to the newer 737 Max 8.

He said the pilots were also made aware of an emergency directive issued by the U.S. regulator, the FAA, following the crash of a Boeing 737 Max 8 owned by Indonesia’s Lion Air last year.
