Perhaps posters here should read beginning on page 314 about JATR´s findings related to MCAS.
It finds a whole row of things wrong with the MAX and Boeing.
In sum, the JATR found that the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft should not have been certified as airworthy....
I want to quote a few points in regards to maintenance and pilots
B. Lion Air's pilots, engineers, and maintenance personal should not be faulted for their reasonable attempts to detect, diagnose, and correct an unknowable defect.
1. The Lion Air flight JT610 crew should not be faulted for their response to a latent and unknowable defect.
It is very clear were this accident report puts the blame, straight at Boeing's feet. Nowhere else.
You need to reread that section again a bit more critically. Those quotes are Lion Air’s comments on the final report (section 6.10). They quote some of JTAR’a findings which is why that header is on page 314, but only the indented bulleted parts are from JTAR. Your quotes are not words that JTAR or the the accident investigation team wrote. It is not surprising that Lionair is saying Lionair should hold no responsibility. JTAR was not investigating the Lion air crash, they were investigating the 737MAX controls and certification process and would not (and do not) talk about fault in the crashes because that was not their job to investigate. In fact the JTAR report states: Observation O11.2-C: Maintenance and ground handling errors have contributed to several accidents and multiple incidents, and maintenance issues might also be relevant to the Lion Air B737 MAX accident based on the preliminary report.
An investigative team is not going to spend pages detailing failures with Lionairs mechanics and pilots that allowed holes in the Swiss cheese to line up and then write ‘but hey can’t fault them for anything!’ Reports like this in general try to minimize talking about blame period, they just stage the factors that lead to the crash.
You are right. Only that the 737MAX was not certifiable as airworthy is according JTAR.
