737 MAX What you don't get is, I never said you can replace pilots by a computer, I said Airbus builds planes and says "use as much automation as possible" when flying the airplane meaning you can trust your plane, I don't know about other Boeing planes but, should not be very different than airbus.
On approach if you have any flap setting selected on auto flight and need to go missed you just push the thrust levers and see what your airbus does for you,no need to think about an unexpected nose down attitude during climb out, no need for any specific unusual situation training for exemple.
This is how automation should be used.
You pretend being an Airbus pilot and clearly never heard about OEB48, a special procedure for Airbus because erratic behaviour of the automatics led to some very very narrow escapes.
I still find it amazing how people instead of accepting the 737MAX problems try and bully the 320 which has been the state of the art fly by wire airplane for more than 30 years now.
Infact it led to narrow escapes but not two crashes within few month interval at the start of its life.
We should compare early A320's to 737NG's or even the Classics.
Automation at boeing back then was...Let me think...Steam gauges on the 737CL and radio altimeter problems causing once again TK1951.
I recall flight control problems as well on early 737s going into spins and crashing on final,low altitude again...
Don't get me wrong, I love the 737 however, the A320 was a step ahead speaking of automation.
Myself a fake and you a real airbus man we both know very well that the A320 has changed drastically over the years since the Air France 296 crash.
The LH 321 causing the oeb is very different from new A320s and because you like teaching I would love to hear from you about them.
The MAX is a new born airplane with only a few hundred produced, has a new system and it seems to fail at low altitude contrary to the A320 which has been produced at more than 8000 which is not cool is it?
I was very wrong comparing the normal procedures of the airbus with the MAX, this is true.
But lets be clear the following procedure is easier than fighting a MAX on departure at low altitude.
Altitude = Time, no time is less options.
My conclusion; the MAX has serious problems and the whole world understands this.
I find it sad how people try to bully online when someone shares their toughts.
Same technique everytime, "you pretand to be, you don't know anything about flying..."
Please people!!! I do not pretend to be a pilot, very fortunately I am one
or should I consider both my FAA and EASA licenses and say I am pilot twice
Fly safe everyone.
