In the tests, which were part of the work involved in evaluating the software update, many of the pilots did not use the correct procedures to handle emergencies, instead relying on their flying skills.

"I still haven't been forgiven by God for the covering up I did last year," one employee says in 2018, referring to an exchange of information with the FAA.
"Would you put your family on a Max simulator trained aircraft? I wouldn't," says one employee to another, who responds, "No."
I just jedi mind tricked this fools.
I should be given $1000 every time I take one of these calls.
I save this cpmpany a sick amount of $$$$
what did you convince them of?
to simply produce an email from me to the DGCA that states all the airlines and regulators that accept only the MAX CBT
to make them feel stupid about trying to require any additional training requirements
"Amazing what a brown envelope can achieve... FAA were neither thorough nor demanding...".
Now friggin Lion Air might need a sim to fly the MAX, and maybe because of their own stupidity. I’m scrambling trying to figure out how to unscrew this now! idiots
