I flew most of the Boeings and I certainly was trained on this, I did repeat it in recurrent training and I was always aware of the problems a runaway trim could cause as well as the QRH procedures. ...

I did identify the cause: Pilot Error. They failed to control their aircraft when it was possible to do so by using the runaway trim procedures as published. Contributing to that was maybe the fact...

Some talk that the problems faced by these crews were made more difficult due to the multiple warnings and confusion caused by same. I agree that it would be tough but it is not new; all airplanes...

The final action to return the aircraft to service will not involve any changes to the QRH procedures for the stab trim problem the MCAS caused. They will require the MCAS system to use two sensors...

I would expect every pilot who takes money for his craft to be able to follow company and manufacturer guidance and especially to be able to follow the QRH/AFM/POH for the aircraft he is flying. If...

Here's a novel idea. I doubt it has been considered by too many people, including pilots on this forum:

If you experience low oil pressure you should follow the QRH procedures for low oil...

Pilotmike: Have you got anything that refutes what I said? Any factual errors in my piece? You disagree that we need to do more with pilot training and with airline company emphasis on training and...

I've been criticized for blaming the pilots for the accidents because they perished and should be respected for that. I guess there is truth in that, and I don't mean to put the blame on them...

An effective pilot needs training, understanding, knowledge, skill and experience. Some of these factors (if above average) can make up for deficiencies in the others but mostly I would say skill...

I see it. I live it. I train these guys and I see their progression. I know what the airlines are offering and paying for their services. The experience level has dropped precipitously. ...

Training is good, and necessary of course. Not everyone will respond the same way; some will really try to understand the training and store it in their brain as well as be able to pull that...

You are right on. (Rarife #11). I can identify only one group that benefits from the 1500 hour rule in the US and that is the senior pilots at ALPA who are adept at lobbying Congress (that passed...

That is short sighted. If there are not enough pilots then companies will shrink or go out of business, leading to a job shortage which might leave YOU out to dry.

I don't see the logic. If the training is expensive that is one reason why so few pilots can afford it and is one of the prime reasons for the shortage, surely? If it was cheaper there would be...

That is a very dense statement I confess I do not know what you are trying to say, but I guess it is in defence of the pilots. I do not intend to attack those poor guys; they were obviously out of...

80% of accidents are due to pilot error. Always have been and, apparently, always will be. A mechanical defect might be the initial cause, but in most cases a competent pilot can still safely fly...

You mean from a Left or Right wing politician? I have to admit, Sir, you are right about that. I cannot tell the difference and am more likely to be fooled by the Right.
