Re: Coronavirus Aviation Related News & Discussion Thread - March 2020 - Part II

Swiss government, with immediate effect, close borders form anyone that don't have a legal document to enter.
My understanding is that the aircraft can still fly but passengers need to have the right paper to enter in Switzerland.

Re: Boeing 737MAX Grounding, General Discussion Thread, March 2020

First, I think it should be clarified that when out of trim it is almost impossible to bring back using the manual wheel. It is possible with the electric trim switches. I was very disappointed that the interim report did not address an explanation as to why they moved the cutout switches while the...

Re: Boeing 737MAX Grounding, General Discussion Thread, March 2020

My point being that nothing in my logical, engineering brain, indicates that even if you went back to the original trim wheel on the NG and MAX that it would move under the same conditions that the current wheel doesn't move. It seems clear to me that if we could go back in time to listen to the de...

Manual trim didn't work, crew tries to go back to electric trim but then MCAS kicks in and kills them. That's terrible. Did not know manual trim was also faulty. This is what happens on a 737 NG and 737 MAX after an extreme misstrim and a STAB TRIM CUTOUT at high speed: https://youtu.be/aoNOVlxJmow...

The 737 is an outlier here because it will never be FBW, any attempt to do that will result in a new build frame as nothing from the 737 will be allowed over. The 737 pilots will probably be required to a specific training to operate the MAX, as the last available information suggest, we will see h...
