As an INDY I applaud this action.....I AGREE with Trump,.in that computerized control ofthe plane doesNOT address the issue of how intuitive or skillful the pilot ACTUALLY is in manning the aircraft.

Number of flying hours for the pilot, simulation training WITHOUT the aid of computer driven control....all are essential in averting a catastrophic crash. I realize there are many factors
in flight training,BUT, KNOWING the aircraft and flying it intutively is an ART. "SULLY''is the
set standard for that scenario....jmo

The computer control is apparently simple to bypass, but requires training to do so. Pilots have been complaining about the software here in the States, but have been properly trained on the software so they could bypass when needed. Boeing has already come out with a software patch, but likely too little, too late. They are going to have to admit culpability on this one and fall on the grenade if they ever want to claw their way back out of the red.

PER SULLY......not enough cock pit training and the airlines are pushing pilots thru the system
with insufficient training......so-o-o, with that information should you (collectively) be asking
the question (before boarding) HOW MANY FLIGHT HOURS DOES THE PILOT AND CO PILOT HAVE?

The back story to this bird......begs the question......do you REALLY trust your airlines ability to put safety OVER $$$$$?

PER WSJ......BOEING WANTED TO DO A HANDOUT OF CHANGES,NO REAL PROGRAM
SIMULATOR OR VIEDO TUTORIAL …..FAA IS STILL ASKING FOR TUTORIAL AND
SIMULATOR DISPLAY.....BOEING IS GOING ON THE CHEAP....$$$$$ GREED AND
NO INTEGRITY.....when changes to original design circumvents the process for safety and
secure training....we have a pretty BIG problem.

Aviation industry is NOT the only culprit....the medical device industry is doing the SAME thing,
making changes and circumventing the process of approval because of$$$$$.

The more I hear about this, the worse it looks for Boeing. And the FAA. You cannot rely on a company to police its own safety protocols, they aren't objective enough, and we need sufficient funding for our regulatory agencies - that's their job, to help keep the public safe.

SC......it is not just this industry....I subscribe WSJ and MEDSCAPE and about 1 year ago
they were reporting MEDICAL DEVICES (implanted) were doing the same ''WORK AROUND'' to save time and $$$$$. Which translates to patient READMISSIONS and REPAIR IF they experience malfunction or complications from the implanted device. There are several lawsuits working thru the courts because of NON DISCLOSURE or blatant disregard for
the implications....
