The faster that the plane is going the greater the force required to oppose it and the more violent the reaction of the plane to the control surface, At low altitude and high speed it would be just...

I am in no way attempting to defend Boeing or the decisions made specific the MAX series of 737 or arguing with the decision to ground the plane. You summed the issue up your self with the following...

I don't think that I voiced an opinion not readily apparent to anyone who has actually flown an airplane of any sort. In the end we're dealing with trim which is the single most intuitive element of...

I'm just curious what will happen when it's completely clear that two totally serviceable airframes were wrecked (this might not be entirely fair to the ET309 crew) by less then competent crews. Will...

Amazing reading.

Basically what it confirms is that for competent well rested crews the potential MCAS issues are a minor speed bump. Doesn't mean that it isn't a very real issue but the bottom...

Your actually outlining the real issue at hand here perfectly. The "issue" is not specific to one aircraft or one aircraft type...not even one manufacturer. It's a systemic issue based on the ever...

The FO had an MPL not an ATPL, The program provides for 70 hours of actual flight time and 130 hours of simulator training. From an earlier post of a pilot who actually flew with ET he stated that...

I've got a basic question on the level of training for an MPL. Does the simulator work include/require a demonstrated ability to fly and land on raw data only? Same thing for Captain upgrade for ET?

Actually it's a factual statement in the sense that the vast majority of newer commercial pilots have very little hand flying experience in a line environment. SOP for just about every airline...

I agree completely, the most relevant aspect of the eyewitness accounts is the consistency in believe that the engines sounded wrong. Aural memory is much stronger and more consistently correct then...

I'm somewhat amazed at the apparent broad based assumption that the MCAS is in fact the root issue in the crash. No question that it's potentially a significant "hole in the cheese" but there is a...
