what y'all need to understand is that right now, all the Max pilots are in 'check, double check, triple check, verify' mode. If they even suspected that something was even a little bit off, they wouldn't be flying
It has been suggested there is an issue with the autopilot at high angles of attack getting false information from the air speed indicator.
Simple solution... don't use auto pilot in climb mode.. Problem solved
I’m personally convinced that pilot error is the biggest factor. AOA (Angle of Attack) disagreements may have created a situation that could have easily been corrected by disconnecting the AFCS (Auto Flight Control System, or “Autopilot”). A software update having to do with the MACS (Maneuver Augmentation Control System) will also aid in this situation.
That said, I hope the investigations discern if it is an aircraft problem, training problem or combination there of. Remember other cultures don't learn or process procedures the same way we do. Further, it will turn better if the UK, CANUKs or Aussies are leading the investigation with US participation. Some of these countries are better at managing goat herding than investigations.
