Re: Boeing 737MAX Grounded Worldwide Q4 2019

So… I thought that it was confirmed (from many months ago) that Boeing had not informed the FAA about the changes in the regime in which MCAS was designed to function.

Spaceflight will never tolerate carelessness, incapacity, and neglect. Somewhere, somehow, we screwed up. It could have been in design, build, or test. Whatever it was, we should have caught it.

Re: Boeing 737MAX Grounded Worldwide Q4 2019

Boeing's defense wrt the MCAS activation changes is that since the work was delegated to them they did not have to communicate changes back to the FAA. That's a very thin and long branch to be standing on, but it's a lot different than deliberately installing a feature into the airplane that would ...

The bombshell is that the chief technical pilot comes to understand that MCAS has been changed to operate over the speed range all the way down to 0.2 Mach. Thus, the system is no longer what he represented it to be, to the FAA. He realizes this, and yet we know that Boeing never went back to the F...
