Talking about cheese: did you know that the NG's autothrottle also uses the left airspeed / Mach reference, even when the right FCC is active? I discovered that by accident during an actual...

I thought the whole MAX saga was already a PR disaster of the highest order, but apparently there's always someone that can do worse. To think that some people actually held a meeting and decided...

Egregious

The flight pattern of the accident flights did not remotely fit an activation of MCAS either. The cause of the accidents may be very different than the simulator-experience from the chat (erroneous...

Clockwork? Depends on who you ask, I guess. Boeing not being able to fit wings and fuselage properly together even on one of the very last -800s must be a bit embarrassing to say the least...

Erroneous MCAS intervention does not look like runaway trim, it looks like speed trim. Which intervenes so frequently with automatic trimming during routine climbs that a slowly turning trim wheel in...

That's what I would expect as well, based on what I've heard happened some time ago on a 737NG aircraft. In that occurrence a damaged AoA vane resulted in erroneous airspeed indications, continuous...

In my experience, the 737 autopilot itself is quite a high-gain controller, stirring the pot all over the place in comparison to the 777 I flew before. Of course that's partly due to its much lower...

You will be flying with your other hand anyway if you transition to the left seat in any airliner, with or without sidesticks. If thousands of captains can do that, it shouldn't be much of a problem,...

Have you heard the one about the dyslexic, agnostic, insomniac? He couldn't sleep at night because he kept wondering if there really was a dog.
