Turned out to be like a 6 yr old asking a nuclear physicist how the hydrogen bomb works! ( The lady respondent was pretty good though! ) A shaming session and feel good opportunity for the survivors but otherwise a political event

Re: C172 flips over on landing

Yep, panic braked and lost control to miss a plane that was NOT crossing the runway ahead of her but was stationary. Yep, she will be right seat at Air "equal opportunity employer" Canada in no time flat !!! :wink:

Re: C172 flips over on landing

and use her great skills to avoid flying C 150's in 95 MPH winds, and contemplating behind the power curve glassy water approaches. We have all done some things in airplanes which were not good. Hmmm, and this person is the one who flipped a C-172 and you speak of her great future skills ! and yet,...

Re: Boeing allegedly Misled FAA on MAX certification.

If only the pilots knew to go onto the backside of the power curve, no sorry, i meant BACKSIDE, as in roll her and fly inverted to unload the stab, clean her up as she approaches trim speed ( quickly) hit the shut-off and roll her out for a nice landing !

Re: Boeing allegedly Misled FAA on MAX certification.

What a wonderful design, flying around at Vmo, take-off thrust and at times in a dive, and 1 friggen broken AOA was running the show! No INS/ IRU no ASI no stall sensing device, no redundancy NOTHING ! and Boeing oversight was not there to see the glaring design faults! And the sim test pilot was ta...

Re: Boeing allegedly Misled FAA on MAX certification.

The bulletin also notes that you can use the manual electric trim switches to neutralize control column forces.

Re: Boeing allegedly Misled FAA on MAX certification.

From a poster in PPRUNE: In all three MCAS incidents the "manual electric trim switches" worked and countered the rogue MCAS trim commands. All three, according to the FDR traces. And one crew went manual real early whether they understood what was wrong or not ( their squawk comment was "STS workin...

Re: Boeing allegedly Misled FAA on MAX certification.

Its interesting to note that Boeing says to "accelerate or decelerate towards the in-trim speed,,,,," I think that would do the trick for smaller out of trim failures But with the MCAS failed A/C involved, I would imagine that the large out of trim would involve an unloading of the planes ( main and...

Re: Boeing allegedly Misled FAA on MAX certification.

Not being an airline pilot, I believe there are 2 main design reasons why the pilot must have what seems like excessive artificial forces on the control column that he has to counteract, 1 is that a grossly mis-trimmed situation may knock the autopilot offline and result in an upset etc and 2, if th...

Re: Boeing allegedly Misled FAA on MAX certification.

Yes, even a dangerously flawed one The only flaw of the plane wrt the accident is the MCAS system and ignorance about it. MCAS was there to give the proper "feel" ( and auto-assist the pilots in retrimming ) so it would retain the same TC and training as the NG etc. The fact that the engine positio...

Re: Boeing Systemic Problems Continue

I would imagine Boeing still wants to retain the current type qualification with their other NG A/C ( Due to the already mounting costs to put this failure behind them ) . To do that with minimal training and a MCAS system that still does the same rate of fwd trimming may need more changes than a se...

Re: Boeing allegedly Misled FAA on MAX certification.

He gave a few feeble inputs of nose-up trim with his thumb switch and began calling on God for a miracle. The MCAS ignored his entreaties and pitched the airplane into a steepening dive at airspeeds that quickly exceeded the engineered limits. Harvino stopped even trying to thumb the trim. Obviousl...

The fight continued for the next five minutes, during which time the MCAS mounted more than 20 attacks and began to prevail. 3 things come to mind 1 The stick shaker and indications are already a past event, they figured it out and moved on. 2 They knew that flaps out worked and that retracting the...

Re: Boeing allegedly Misled FAA on MAX certification.

As the airplane climbed through 2,150 feet, Harvino retracted the wing flaps, and the MCAS kicked in for the first time, ambushing Suneja with its 10 seconds of double-fast nose-down trim and resulting in the 700-foot plunge seen on radar by the controller. Suneja countered by using his thumb switc...
