The entire project was sales and marketing driven, rather than engineering.fishfoodie wrote:It does speak volumes to Boeings commitment to quality control !!Saint wrote:It turns out the Boeing MAX simulators didn't accurately represent an MCAS failure should one occur. Not directly relevant to either crash as simulator time wasn't required, nor even available outside of Seattle, but it speaks to the nature of what was effectively a coverup
Why not just bung on a copy of MS Flight Simulator, & pretend that, if people can land something on that; they can land a MAX in Hong Kong during a Typhoon
The first rule of any software modeling; is to compare the accuracy of the results of the model, to a wide variety of real datasets, (not exclusively using the same data you derived the model from), to determine the actual validity of the model !
The executive team should have had enough engineering experience to counter this, but I don't know how many engineers afre in the Beoing executive team any more.
