Restoring public confidence is certainly a hurdle given the misinformation and sensational reporting we’ve been subjected to. I heard the final report of one of these crashes was supposed to be presented to the surviving families today. Perhaps the general public will have access soon.I really don't want to fly in this Max until some actual fault is found. And neither do others I talk to.
I’m not entirely confident it will paint a clear picture as not all nations air their dirty laundry as we expect of the NTSB. We’ll see.
Historically, AoA sensor malfunctions are not unheard of. One major airline sees on average two per year. Runaway stab trim enabled by faulty AoA was a new and bad thing. The system is now redesigned to mitigate the probability and severity. The same crew responses can no longer produce the same tragic outcome.
I too would like to know the root cause of the AoA malfunction but I also know my safety and the safety of my passengers doesn’t rely on one or both AoAs.
I would like to hear ideas about what it would take to earn your confidence of the Max. I’m sure thirty minutes in a simulator demonstrating normal and abnormal procedures would help. Would a video help?
