Quote: He said it was done primarily because the much bigger engines on the MAX changed the aerodynamics of the jet and shifted the conditions under which a stall could happen. That required further stall protection be implemented to certify the jet as safe.
So the aircrafts design was mechanically and aerodynamically pushed too far, so software protection was necessary.to certify it as safe....

Pushed the 737 too far? Max or maxxed out?
