In https://www.seattletimes.com/business/b ... -controls/ we read:In sessions in a Boeing flight simulator in Seattle, two FAA engineering test pilots, typically ex-military test pilots, and a pilot from the FAA’s Flight Standards Aircraft Evaluation Group (AEG), typically an ex-airline pilot, set up a session to test 33 different scenarios that might be sparked by a rare, random microprocessor fault in the jet’s flight-control computer . . .
So again in light of what happened in the crashes, the FAA pilots took a further step. They flew the same fault scenario again, this time deliberately allowing the fault to run for some time before responding. This time, one of the three pilots didn’t manage to recover and lost the aircraft.
In this report, 3 of 3 pilots handled the standard scenario, 2 of 3 handled the delayed reaction scenario.
If you have another report, please share.
Peter Lemme has quite different feelings on the three second reaction time:
Don't know if you would accept this as "another report" though.
