Re: Ethiopian Airlines 737MAX crashes enroute to Nairobi

Anyone any ideas on this question: What angle rate could one normally expect with hand turning the trim wheel? . . . then it's vital to flick Stab Cut Switch immediately. Now the crew have to revert back to manual trim wheel. What's the normal rate your average pilot can obtain using the wheel? Fro...

But the leaker's take on the i...

The issue isn't MCAS, it is the terrible implementation with no safeguards in the event of erroneous sensor inputs. The autopilot will disengage in that situation.
