There are a lot of Rumours and discussions going on regarding the recent crash of a Boeing 737MAX aircraft in the Java sea outside Indonesia. During the last week the FAA have published and Emergency Airworthiness directive regarding the Boeing 737MAX and how to handle it in case of a failure of its Angle Of Attack sensor (Alpha Vane). Boeing has also issued Bulletins to all 737MAX and 737NG operators regarding the "Manoeuvring Characteristics Management System (MCAS). In This video I will be trying to explain how all of these systems fit together and Why this is such an important thing for pilots to know and understand. I want to EMPHASISE that these are just descriptions of these systems and we still do not know exactly what happened on that flight.
