In my experience, I was under the impression that if automation was likely to be causing a problem, you reduce the level of automation. It appears from what Iím reading, that it is when the autopilot is disconnected that the MCAS becomes armed. Personally I think this goes against the philosophy most pilots understand, whether or not it is applicable to this accident. Iím only Boeing/Gulfstream btw.
