Re: Ethiopian Airlines 737MAX crashes enroute to Nairobi

No MCAS on autopilot. I was thinking that as I was typing :lol: - wouldn't the aircraft have to be trimmed the same way regardless though? Otherwise you'd disable AP and MCAS would suddenly start playing with the trim? Seems weird. I guess in the situations where MCAS would enable, your AP would di...

Re: Ethiopian Airlines 737MAX crashes enroute to Nairobi

From what I recall, MCAS is capable of commanding extreme trim inputs VERY rapidly. If you're on autopilot climbing out, reaching for a coffee or something, looking at a chart, changing a radio frequency, etc, and that thing slams full trim on you, it's tough to know how you'd react and if you woul...
