MAX 737 Discussion on

Eastern Airlines Kitchen Talk Radio

"Tonight, the EAL Radio Show presents Mr. Gregory Travis, our Guest Host in Episode 409, and the topic is "An Interview with A Pilot and Writer of Aviation, and Software Engineering, "(Discussion on Pilot Training). 

Greg Travis has written a recent Abstract on the Boeing 737 Max incidents that have occurred with two international airlines, Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines. Our interview with Greg presents questions on his Abstract as well recent articles on the two fatal airline crashes in the brand new Boeing 737 Max published in the news the last several months. 

A recent article in the Wall St. Journal read "Crash Investigators believe an automated flight-control system that went haywire led to last month’s fatal crash of a Boeing 737 MAX in Ethiopia. But some pilots, industry officials and air-safety experts are also raising questions about the actions of the cockpit crew as detailed in The Preliminary Accident Report". 

Greg has written many articles on the aviation sector back in the 1990s and his future direction is heading into more technical/aviation writing on a full-time basis, though he is currently writing on the U. S. healthcare issues that have been published in that space. 

Call in with your questions for Greg on his written abstract and on your thoughts on this very critical matter to the airline industry. Join us to hear more by calling 213-816-1611 during the show. Our Producer will take your call and you can speak directly to Greg with your questions."

So sorry to miss this one... 
as I will be enroute to Tokyo! 

My two cents... Airplanes will break. Therefore, we need pilots to be proficient when automation fails. However, we have an industry that lacks safety culture worldwide. This negative safety culture is the source of training programs that have a negative impact on pilot performance. 
How do I know? 
These facts were the results of my research. 
Now presented in an easy to read book.

Enjoy the Journey!
