Not looking for an excuse, just looking for a reasonable understanding of why Dave might have been confused
I agree with these 2 sentiments. From them and the pages of educational discussions on the EC135 fuel system, it is clear that it IS complex enough to expect a pilot failure rate. I don't think it's the pilots fault, just the complexity of what is required of him will result in accidents.

DB also 'Fuel Pressure', is a real world cause of accidents. AND "in the real world where problems are real. Not imagined. Not hypothesised. Just real." like this real world multiple fatal accident or Leicester? OR the imaginary world where engine redundancy is an imagined magic cure?
