The notice refers to the "angle of attack", which is the angle of the wing relative to oncoming air stream, a measure that indicates if a plane is likely to stall.
A passenger plane that crashed into the Java Sea on October 29 experienced problems with its airspeed indicators on its last four flights, data from one of the flight recorders retrieved from the aircraft has revealed.
"We have said there's a technical problem but we also want to know what they were discussing in the cockpit and what they were doing", Soerjanto Tjahjono, chief of Indonesia's NTSC, told reporters on Monday.
"We are formulating, with NTSB and Boeing, detailed inspections regarding the airspeed indicator", he said, referring to the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board.
Now Boeing is warning pilots and airlines, including Air Canada and WestJet, that they could experience similar issues with their Boeing 737 Max planes, the same model as the Lion Air plane that crashed. A problem with the airspeed system should not result in a crash under most circumstances, according to safety experts.
If this happens (un-commanded nose-down stabilizer trim) pilots can respond by pushing a switch on their control column (yoke), however, 737's computers will resume trying to dive as soon as the switch is released the new Boeing bulletin said.
"They should have been completely engaged in what was going on inside that cockpit, and any kind of warning that came up, they would have been wise to pay attention to it", Curtis said.
A crucial sensor that's the subject of a Boeing Co safety bulletin was replaced on a Lion Air jet the day before it plunged into the Java Sea, Indonesia's National Transportation Safety Committee said Wednesday.

Varadkar dismisses proposal for a three-month Irish backstop
The plan sees the whole of Britain remaining in the EU customs union - not just Northern Ireland. Downing Street claimed the report about the deal is "all speculation".
A winglet on the first Boeing 737 MAX airliner is pictured at the company's manufacturing plant in Renton, Washington, on December 8, 2015.
The bulletin is based on preliminary findings from the Lion Air disaster, a person familiar with the matter earlier told Bloomberg.
The warning prompted the US Federal Aviation Administration to issue its own emergency airworthiness directive, telling airlines with Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft to follow correct procedures if pilots receive erroneous information from an AOA sensor.
The issue only occurs when a plane's autopilot is switched off, Boeing said. The plane was only a few months old and had logged a total of 19 flights and 800 flying hours.
On Thursday (Nov 1), the SAR team found the flight data recorder (FDR) of the aircraft, and now the search focus was on another part of the aircraft's black box, namely, the Cockpit Voice Recorder (CVR).
The committee said the pilots were dealing with an erroneous airspeed indication.
"As an initial step we conducted ramp checks for 11 Boeing 737 Max 8", said transport minister Sumadi, adding that authorities were also conducting a special audit to include operating procedures and crew qualifications.
Indonesia's search and rescue agency extended the search effort on Wednesday for a second time, saying it would continue until Sunday.
The Lion Air crash was the first involving the type of plane, which airlines introduced into service past year.
