Re: Boeing 737MAX Grounded Worldwide Q2 2019

No. Since it hasn't led to an issue with the NG with over 7,000 examples in service over the course of over 20 years this would be an insane suggestion. What would "adequately trained" even mean? Will the pilots that can't turn it start a special workout to get strong enough to do it? The...
