MOSCOW (Sputnik) The Interstate Aviation Committee expects Russia’s civil aviation authority Rosaviatsia to announce the need on Friday to immediately adjust the flight control altitude systems (elevators) on Boeing 737s, the IAC said in a statement.

“The IAC expects that during the November 6, 2015, meeting that Rosaviatsia will bring to the attention to all interested parties, including exploiters in the Russian Federation, its position on the need to immediately adjust…the flight control altitude systems [elevators] on Boeing 737 airplanes,” the statement reads.

On Thursday, the IAC withdrew licenses for Boeing 737 in Russia.

The civil aviation authority said it was concerned over the functioning of Boeing’s flight control systems, in particular its elevators, which regulate the aircraft’s pitch.

Fears over the safety of passenger planes in Russia have grown in the past few days after a Russian airline Airbus A321 had crashed in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula on Saturday, killing all 224 people on board.
