Ethiopian Airlines pilot untrained on Boeing 737 MAX 8 simulator

The captain of the ill-fated Ethiopian Airlines jetliner was unable to practice on a new simulator for Boeing’s 737 MAX 8 simulator, according to a report. Yared Getachew, 29, was due for refresher training at the end of March, two months after Ethiopian Airlines had received the simulator. It is unclear if First Officer Ahmednur Mohammed, 25, had practiced on the new simulator.

"Planes are becoming far too complex to fly. Pilots are no longer needed, but rather computer scientists from MIT, I see it all the time in many products. Always seeking to go one unnecessary step further, when often old and simpler is far better." - President Donald Trump
