    bankrupt government agencies that can't hire qualified employees is the result of a fiat currency a debt-based, petroleum-based currency. Petroleum is a fossil fuel we burn. Gold is a naturally occurring element; it's on the periodic table. It's a dense metal with a high value. There is not much other use for it besides jewelry or smelting it down and reshaping it. See it's not like we're burning gold. But when the total US debt is >$70T and you have a federal government that has not been able to be held accountable for well pretty much my whole life. So, at least the 20 years have been an unprecedented level of unaccountable corruption and just yeah, so much more cuz if you still think that Tump is innocent and somehow the US military allows the Pentagon to be attacked and to have a bunch of politicians selling you a story that cannot possibly be true, then you can see how we have become the MOST corrupt country cuz when you can murder random people on live television and you have enough political power to stay in power, man that is sick. The fact that people can be living in their own world is amazing in a 2019 when nearly everyone on the planet has some sort of digital device and can connect to the internet and there are 7.7B people, somehow people still manage to live in a fantasy where they can do mental gymnastics to make anything true. Sooner or later you gotta get a reality check. This is gonna be just like Trump is right now, He's obviously guilty but somehow we keep voting. The Bush administration told everyone it was airplanes when is saying Thermite Demolition. Which are two very different things. But, somehow no one is held accountable. Obama looks like Osama Bin Laden. I mean Obama's official press statement was that they "buried" the body at sea. I mean, why are there any pictures of Osama Bin Laden to begin with? he was supposed to be the most elusive terrorist in the world. but his father was Saudi Royal and construction magnate. MMM.... who just so happens to look like Obama? nose? check. height? check. age? check. I mean, it's too close for comfort. There's a hundred or thousands of different facial structures he could have... why does the US President Obama and the most infamous terrorist Osama Bin Laden look anything close? i mean... that's just too close to be coincidence... and somehow Clinton isn't running for reelection? okay... how is this possible? how can anyone have this much political power? are people just blind? are people just too partisan? it's gone far enough.

    Interesting that Boeing is not ISO certified. Boeing requires that its subsidiaries are certified as well as its suppliers. ISO is a quality standard that allows self oversight. The FAA rightly states that due to Boeings history of proven safety governmental oversight was delegated to the manufacturer. It may be time to re-examine the governmental requirements for FAA certification which most likely will mean increased oversight.

    An ipad for an hour. I can guarantee that no one can fly a plane if you only had an hour unless you had prior aerodynamic experience.

      The 1-hour I-Pad course was for pilots certified on older 737 types, not complete basic training. It was still pretty reckless and clearly the result of marketing and management overruling the engineers.

  28. Dave Kent

    Dave Kent

    Let me get this straight. One of the original benefits touted for using flight simulation training was cost effectiveness. It has in fact proven to be very effective. The cost savings of using an iPad flight sim is inversely proportional to the catastrophic effects of not using hands on flight simulation programs. Nevertheless, Boeing has the temerity to admit these cost savings are key selling points( Boeing's selling points) aimed at Boeing's clients. I don't believe in this world or any other world that potential clients of this Boeing jet had the slightest idea that Boeing would intentionally take them for this horrific ride. Boeing reporting (the clients) as having a higher value on "cost savings" than passenger safety shifts responsibility away from Boeing. For failure of accountability alone they need to be immediately dismantled then sued in a class action.

    • Magni56


      Il y a 22 jours

      The I-Pad course wasn't a simulator. It's basically an interactive user manual for trained 737 pilots, meant to teach them the differences with the 737MAX. Though yes, it was still completely inadequate and Boeing was incredibly reckless and negligent.

    Il y a 23 jours

    the reason the training for the pilots was done on a tablet instead of in a sim is that they aren't getting a new type rating, they are just converting to a newer plane of the same type. this minimal training is allowed, however the lack of training on the MCAS is likely a contributing factor.

    • Magni56


      Il y a 22 jours

      Well they absolutely did in this case. The MCAS and the way it is set up are ridiculously bad engineering, and Boeing certifying it as NOT being a critical component is just outright criminal negligence. As is the whole idea to sell it was a minimal variant to older 737s with only a one-hour course for pilots that left out the *very existence* of the MCAS system. The 737MAX saga at this point is a striking example of management and marketing overruling engineering and safety in the worst manner possible, and Boeings behaviour after the crashes has been absolutely reprehensible, more concerned with ass-covering than keeping people safe.

I got no less that 20 e-mails lobbyists from Churches cried about unfair treatment of them at Boeing. The ties of Boeing to the Evangelicals can’t be underestimated, our current Defense Secretary is a formerly CEO of Boeing Do you think he did not cause the 2 week delay in grounding the 737 so he could pull a Martha Stewart on his stock shares?

    Ok, but to those wondering about pilot training: there is more to it than that hour on an iPad. That pilot has to have extensive training, including real time flying planes, to get a license and to fly commercially. THEN they get the hour of training for the controls of that specific plane. Most of the main controls are easily recognizable, so it's just a matter of lesser used controls. I would say that if pilots don't feel 1 hour is enough time for training, then they need to increase it until they feel comfortable, but that isn't the reason the planes crashed..

    *Sigh* Ok, here goes - I usually avoid the comment section but - As someone who works in the tech industry and maintaining FAA/ATC/Military tech, hearing that the FAA is too broke doesn't come as a surprise. Most people don't know this but a lot of their tech is from the 50s, 60s, and 70s - it's cheaper to maintain than it is to cope with designing new tech to work within the extremely tight tolerances and requirements for the tech. With any changes in technology, there are bound to be bugs - yes, Boeing definitely should have done a better job checking for issues with this sensor. A huge, huge oversight of the FAA to allow planes to go into service HOWEVER. people blowing up about the iPad training - commercial pilots have to have thousands upon thousands of hours before they even get in small commercial jets and fly them - It takes decades of flying to move up to the point where you can captain this large of a plane. This is why you don't often meet young pilots for these planes. Often times, it is possible that a pilot could jump in a type of plane they've heard nothing about and fly it perfectly because its an airplane, and flying planes is, after all, what pilots are good at. This 737 is a new iteration of the previous 737s - the pilots don't need to relearn how to fly, just some of the differences between the planes. Would have made more sense to have the pilots take /some/ sort of test flight on the plane in conjunction with the iPad video but... Think of it as if you were buying a new car - you don't need to re-learn how to drive, do 100 hours of supervised driving, and then pass your drivers test again. Even if some of the buttons are different, you still know how to drive. Only thing is, you should be careful in your brand new Tesla/737 and not let automatic features take over control in case it tries to drive you into a semi truck or, you know, nose dive the plane into the ground. Anyways. Argue amongst yourselves now.

Then yeah I trust em. I’m sure that’s how they learn about a lot of new planes. Its not like every time a new plane comes out they haft to re learn how to fly. It’s like switching to a new iPad. It’s a little different but it’s not hard learn.
