Re: Reuters: Lion Air ponders cancellation of 737 MAX orders

Point of information, there are over 7,000 737NG's flying with a similar system, auto trimming nose down during a stall, that has a very small mention in the FCOM and isn't trained to in the simulator -- no accidents so far. There's way more to this than lack of FCOM information/simulator training....
