Re: Boeing 737MAX Grounded Worldwide Q2 2019

In to the response immediately above by morrisond. You are completely correct about pilots not being able to fly aircraft in an emergency condition. Most of them do not hand fly an aircraft enough. Donal Nyrop former CEO of Northwest Airline always said the most important thing for a pilot is "...
