Speaking at a U.S. Congressional hearing on June 19, 2019, Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, deemed as a hero pilot for safely landing a US Airways passenger plane on the Hudson River in NY, in 2009, had harsh criticism for Boeing and the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regarding the two recent 737 MAX crashes.
"We remained concerned about whether the new training protocol, materials and method of instruction suggested by Boeing are adequate to ensure the pilots across the globe flying the MAX fleet can do so in absolute complete safety", Carey told the House committee. Retired Capt. Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger told a congressional subcommittee Wednesday that an automated flight control system on the 737 Max "was fatally flawed and should never have been approved".
Sullenberger gained worldwide fame, and a movie deal, after he safely landed an Airbus jet on New York's Hudson River without any casualties.
In his speech, Sullenberger reviewed the events that led up to the creation of the faulty software, the Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System, including the attempt by Boeing to update an aircraft more than 50 years old without any serious modifications to the frame of the jet itself.
Boeing engineers have finished making changes to the software and expect to soon demonstrate its work to government safety officials in hopes that the FAA will certify the plane as safe, three months after it was grounded around the world. Simulator training was not required for pilots transitioning from the previous "Next Generation" version of the 737 to the Max. Surely, having a major amount of knowledge in this field, Jonathan is the one that looks after all the business processes of Market News 24 as well.
"Reading about it on an iPad is not even close to sufficient", he said.
A pilot whose heroics became a Hollywood film says he knows the desperation that engulfed the cockpits on Boeing's two doomed 737 Max planes.
The two disasters killed 346 in all, and investigations revealed that both the crashes resulted from a malfunctioning flight control system of the MCAS.

Transfer: Lukaku told to leave Manchester United
Martinez, who also managed Lukaku at Everton, told Belgian newspaper NLN: "It is clear that he has to leave Manchester United ". Lukaku, 26, was not an automatic starter last season and his worldwide boss reckons the No9 must get out of Old Trafford.
"We clearly had a mistake in the implementation of the alert", Muilenburg said.
"We not only have to devise checklists, we have to make sure those checklists are able to be performed by a flight crew, " Carey told the lawmakers. Plans for a new plane are in "cold storage" until the MAX is back.
"This was a fatal design flaw built into the aircraft at the factory, " Carey said in an interview before the hearing.
"Prior to these accidents, I think it is unlikely that any United States airline pilots were confronted with this scenario in simulator training", Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger told the House Transportation Committee during a hearing on the embattled plane model.
What was described in his remarks was a company that rushed ahead with the production of a deadly airplane design to compete with its European-based rival, Airbus, in an effort to secure US, European and Asian market share.
Aside from the grounding of the 737 Max planes that has since affected multiple airlines around the world, the Airbus rivalry is a huge thorn in the neck of Boeing.
Carey and Sullenberger also question the FAA's independence from Boeing and other companies it regulates.
