|Quoting SEPilot (Reply 62):|
And you can put that up against at least two A320 accidents where FBW was clearly a major cause (the first one, the demo flight that crashed after a low pass and another where the pilot set the wrong descent rate, and I am sure there were a couple of incidents as well.)
There must be a reason that you've seen fit to have a poke at FBW and then back it up with two examples of pilot error.
|Quoting speedygonzales (Reply 72):|
The demo flight that crashed at Habsheim was pilot error, and had exactly nothing to do with FBW
|Quoting SEPilot (Reply 89):|
And as others have pointed out, the FBW envelope protection did prevent them from entering a climb attitude
correct. And rightly so.
The pilot put the plane in a position where to do so would have induced an equally catastrophic stall.
|Quoting rheinwaldner (Reply 93):|
If a stall was prevented I don't know why actually having a stall would have been the better option. It never is
I can't believe I'm seeing it put forward as a serious "issue" with respect to FBW frankly..
|Quoting Aquila3 (Thread starter):|
Will The MAX Be A Less Safe Aircraft?
how can it possibly be less safe than the 737NG that it's going to replace, which itself is one of the safest airframes out there (FBW or no FBW)
Strange question IMO
