Re: B737MAX Grounded Worldwide

Not quite true. Reynolds number has an effect on stall too. Airspeed and altitude effect Re-number . . . . Straight from the FAA: “It is important for the pilot to understand that a stall is the result of exceeding the critical AOA, not of insufficient airspeed. The term “stalling speed” can be mis...

Re: Ethiopian Airlines 737MAX crashes enroute to Nairobi

Apparently STAB TRIM CUTOUT switch positions are not recorded by the DFDR, and so they cannot directly identify the position of the switches. Not recorded, because MCAS, as well as the pilots, can change. Likely MCAS will turn out to have three settings - OFF (procedure yet to be disclosed by Boein...

From there on, the main input by the crew was to pitch up, even though the stall warning was sounding all the way through. . No, the stall warning would shut off at high angles of attack.
