Pilot of crashed Ethiopian Airlines plane was untrainedYared Getachew, 29, was due for refresher training at the end of March, his colleague told Reuters, two months after Ethiopian Airlines had received one of the first such simulators being distributed.The MAX, which came into service two years ago, has a new automated system called MCAS (Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System). It is meant to prevent loss of lift which can cause an aerodynamic stall sending the plane downwards in an uncontrolled way.“I think that the differences between the 737 NG and the MAX were underplayed by Boeing,” said John Cox, an aviation safety consultant, former U.S. Airways pilot and former air safety chairman of the U.S. Airline Pilots Association.
So, if I got it correctly until here, mainly Boeing is to blame for these two disasters. Not only did tehy fail to send the pilots who were given such machiens the manuals to be trained on the new system implemented in these new models, but also did they downplay the potential risks and the capablities of these systems. Well done, Boeing, you actually murdered all these people by your irresponsible behaviour.
