India barred 90 pilots from flying Boeing Co. 737 Max jets after finding problems with a simulator they’d trained on to operate the aircraft, which the country cleared to fly again in August following a global grounding. 

A routine check of the simulator revealed deficiencies, and an investigation is underway to discover what caused them, Arun Kumar, chief of India’s Directorate General of Civil Aviation, told Bloomberg News.
