Boeing: The pilots didn’t need to be aware of that information since chances of that same crash happening again was remote

 

CBS News has obtained audio from the American Airlines pilots' union confronting Boeing about new features to the 737 Max that may have been factors in two deadly crashes. Frustration boiled over during the tense meeting in November 2018, less than a month after the first Max crashed, and four months before the second crash.

 

The pilots at the meeting were angry that system was not disclosed to them until after the first crash.  "These guys didn't even know the damn system was on the airplane — nor did anybody else," one pilot said.

 

The official, Boeing vice president Mike Sinnett, who does not appear to know he was being recorded, claimed what happened to Lion Air was once-in-a-lifetime type scenario.

 

"I don't know that understanding this system would've changed the outcome on this. In a million miles, you're going to maybe fly this airplane, maybe once you're going to see this, ever. So we try not to overload the crews with information that's unnecessary so they actually know the information we believe is important"

The proclamation comes as the House Appropriations Defense Subcommittee included $986 million in a draft FY2020 budget for eight F-15EX aircraft to replace aging F-15C/Ds.

And who made the "proclamation"?  You guessed it - Boeing.

 

Fluff piece.

 

Boeing has many cronies in the press.

 

But maybe Boeing's Defense and Aerospace sector is viable enough to be sold off.
