The company had long maintained that the training wasn’t needed to fly the plane, which has been grounded following two deadly crashes. (www.nytimes.com) Más...

Simulators cost big dollars buy and run. However it is small change to properly train and prepare pilots to fly the airplane. No system can replace a well trained pilot to recover from the unexpected during flight. Expecting pilots who can fly previous versions of the 73 to handle the MAX after two days on an iPad is magical thinking at best.

Pilots should have total immersion training lasting weeks, not hours, to properly handle the systems in adverse conditions. Like learning French, you must speak it and use it exclusively for weeks to months to competently order your breakfast in Paris.

Boeing should also be training mechanics to service the advanced systems so chances of challenging a pilot at altitude is reduced to nil.

Boeing's thinking is analogous to learning one type of French to speak it fluently in either France or Canada.

Funny you mention that. I spent two years in high school to learn German. My best friend's mother is German but between my teacher's bad understanding of Hoch Duetsch and my friend's Mom speacking her dialect, it was a disaster. LOL, by the time I was stationed at Ramstein my German friends would hear me try to speak German, screw it just speak English.
