A lot has been said today in the media about pilots not knowing about the new system and sure enough I can’t find anything about MCAS in the manuals. However, the max and NG FCOM both state that the speed trim system will trim the stabiliser nose down as the airspeed approaches the stall speed. Neither alludes to what the exact inputs are to this system (eg. AoA vanes), nor that it can erroneously occur if x y z fails but the actual function of the system that is suspected to have caused the problem isn’t new to the 737 max? Or have I missed something?
