The problem is George that Boeing and Airbus are designing aircraft for those who will be flying for the next 30 years. The pilots you have flown with during the past 30 years have had a very different pathway to airline cockpits. What Boeing has done has designed an aeroplane that tries to take the pilot out of the equation because they don't trust pilots to be able to handle certain parts of the flight envelope. What Boeing should have done is started from scratch and designed an aeroplane that is compatible with the pilot training that currently exists. i.e. a very narrow pathway providing a very specific set of skills. In the case of the Max it would seem that most pilots from the last 30 years and those for the next 30 years were going to have problems because the 737 was designed 60 years ago.

Boeing 727 MAX This is interesting

I am at a loss to understand how anyone can make judgements of aircrew or anyone else for that matter, when formal investigations have not been completed. I am particularly at a loss, when the judgements are coming from people who are not qualified commercial pilots or involved professionally and permanently in the aviation industry. However, the attached news item appeared this morning, allegedly from a former Boeing senior employee and is interesting.

I read UAL, AA and South West have all pushed back their intended return of the Max to latter this year, I'd hate to be in Boeings management team these days!
Airbus must be smiling!

Airbus aren't smiling.
$4 billion fine in the UK with more to come over graft convictions.
A400M losing 100's of millions.
A380 wind down to wipe out many more 10's of millions
