This same article states "the pilots from both unions said that they were certain that they could keep flying the plane safely, even without simulators", but now it's a big issue. All the finger pointing won't bring any of these souls back to life, but journalists and "aviation experts" keep saying I told you so, despite nobody saying a word until after the Ethiopian crash...at least not publicly. Now everyone is looking to make a name for themselves or be the white knight that saved millions of people from death. The Max has flown over 10,000 flights in different parts of the world in the first two years of service, and within that time frame, there have been two fatal crashes of this aircraft. There is still no conclusion to why either crash happened, just pure speculation. The airlines, FAA, Boeing are siding with public opinion because it is in their best interest. The public opinion is caused by articles like these and the mass amounts of social media junk that puts everybody in a state of fear. The cause of the crash(s) will eventually be understood and there will be mandates. There will be a software update for the MAX before that happens. There will be mandatory training for all pilots operating the MAX before that happens. There will be a lifting of the ban and all these MAX's will fly in the sky again, and you know what? There will be another crash in the future of a MAX for whatever reason. It is just the law of averages. That many planes in service and there is bound to be more incidents that occur, and when they do occur, it will be this same hysteria all over again.
Oh yes hysteria, just like the old 737 rudder hard over problem how many lives were lost while Boeing and all their superfans were in denial and blaming pilots for that? If the plane was grounded that may have concentrated Boeing mind to fix the problem sooner.
That was Parker-Hanaford issue the manufacturer of the PCU, not Boeing.
If something goes wrong on an airplane produced by Boeing, it is a Boeing issue.
