This training required reprogramming and validation of the simulators. In the past, Level D simulators were not required to replicate the full stall regime. BTW, this is not a "Boeing" thing. The...

Yes on the first part (covered extensively in previous threads). No on the second part - the change in labeling and function was disclosed in the FCOM. The changes did not include a detailed...

Hopefully, the answer is zero. There will probably be some up and down on the altitude as the aircraft is stabilized, but if the pilots correctly apply the runaway stab procedure then there should be...

In terms of the thought process that the 737 pilot goes through to determine whether a stick shaker warning is either 1) correct thus requiring stall avoidance procedures, or 2) false thus requiring...

While there was some more detail in the brief, it was "inside baseball" type material and probably would not mean much unless you were a [redacted] operator.



Well, beside the lag time problem,...

Okay folks, getting a little paranoid here, but no I do not have any relationship with Boeing except for the facts that I have flown their aircraft for over 30 years. That should take care of any...

One press of the TOGA buttons will produce a 1000-2000 fpm rate of climb. A second press will advance the engines to full G/A power. MCAS only operates with the flaps retracted, so it would not be a...

MCAS/STS has two independent channels, so it does have redundancy. I think you may be referring to the fact that the loss of AOA will keep MCAS from activating. The loss of MCAS will not cause the...

I hear what you're saying, but let me try this again with a simple example.

If there is an AOA disagreement that is enough to inhibit MCAS, then we would get a warning annunciator and we would follow the non-normal procedure for that annunciation. It is my understanding that...

If the jackscrew reaches the limit, then someone was very seriously not paying attention. The problem in that case is not with MCAS.

In this operator's opinion, certainly not shared by all, the "AOA Disagree" alert that has captured so much attention is not that bid of a deal. If the AOA's are really that far apart, there will be...

I assume that you understand that there's nothing but software between the flight deck and the rest of the aircraft in more contemporary aircraft designs? At least the 737 has a set of braided steel...

I got a brief on the new software yesterday. First, I would point out that while a third AOA would be nice, it is not necessary. The 737 has a number of double redundant systems. If there is a...
