The A330 flight test crash doesn't say anything useful to me about this thread.

To me as well as to others it does......

Accident Description:The aircraft crashed during a flight test in which the crew was simulating an engine failure on takeoff. Pilor error, misunderstanding of auto-flight systems.


Many discussions in this thread and several others showed the complexity of A320 Autoflight Systems. Pilots with many hours are still surprised what's behind. Plenty of modifications by AB made the situation even more confuseing.
