US aviation regulator FAA asks Boeing to improve safety features, training requirements for 737 Max 8 planes

The FAA said on Monday that Boeing will also update training requirements and flight crew manuals related to the system.
The system automatically points the plane's nose down if sensors indicate the plane could be in danger of losing lift or stalling. Sensors on the plane operated by Indonesia's Lion Air gave out faulty readings on its last four flights.
The FAA tried to discourage comparisons between the Lion Air crash and Sunday's deadly crash of an Ethiopian Airlines 737 Max 8.
