At 5000 feet doing 300 knots, roughly how much time does Boeing think the crew had to read the manual to troubleshoot a problem they didn't understand caused by a system they didn't know existed in order to save the aircraft?
A couple of simple questions , maybe asked already, I could have missed them in the thread ;
Did someone tried the following in a 737 sim , and what were the results ?
a) 5000ft @300 Kts, full trim forward : do you keep pitch control ?
b) if not how long does it take to re-trim back manually to regain pitch control?
c) and is this time enough to stop the descent and level off within 5000 ft ?
