ET302, Pilots on a wing and a prayer: mindFly

ET 302 took off from Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia on 10th March 2019 and 06 minutes into the flight met with an accident. The aircraft was the Boeing’s latest addition to the B-737 series, the B-737 8Max. The infamous MCAS(software) was to have played a role in the accident and nations all over the world, fearing the safety of the traveling passengers, banned the aircraft flying in their airspace. It soon became a world wide ban, thus grounding the MAX fleet. I will not critique on the crew action or inaction because their behaviour will need to be…

How is the Ethiopian Airline accident different from Lion Air: mindFly

The Ethiopian Airlines accident on 10th March 2019 was the 2nd B-737 Max accident in 4 months.

Not MCAS but lack of trust grounds B737Max worldwide:mindFly

The notorious MAS which was suspected by many to be the cause of the Lion Air accident in 2018 end may not be the cause in the Ethiopian Airlines ET302 accident. The reason why the big regulators like UK, France, Singapore, Australia and many other are imposing a ban on the B-737 Max to even enter their airspace points to a lack of trust in FAA and Boeing and the actions taken by them in the past. Read my blog “A question of safety or ethics” http://mindfly.blog/2019/01/10/a-question-of-safety-or-ethicsboeing-737. There was a legal case in the USA in early 2018 where the…

After ET302,FAA admits MCAS is there and issues notification:mindFly

It took FAA 4 months and a second B-737 accident before admitting the presence of MCAS on board the B-737 Max aircraft. On 11th March 2019 FAA has issued a continued airworthiness notification which includes MCAS design enhancements, Training of flight crew and documentation. All these have to be implemented by April 2019. For the first time since the Max has been released to service will the pilots be able to access information on the notorious MCAS officially. Isn’t that a big relief?      Send article as PDF
