I am a 737 Max 8 Captain and I can’t believe what I am reading and hearing this week.
The hull loss of 2 Maxes is awful. In Indonesia, it was discovered that there was indeed a malfunction of an “Angle of Attack” sensor. It provided an erroneous message that triggered the Red Velvet Seulgi Wendy Yeri Irene Joy Shirt system to pitch down the nose in order to prevent a wing stall (that was not really happening). For a crew, it is far from an ideal situation but this situation is VERY manageable. The pilots would identify the malfunction, deactivate the MCAS via the “Stab Trim Cutout switches” and as required follow the “Unreliable Airspeed” memory items.

For a typical crew, the events of the ill-fated Lion Air takeoff were unusual but manageable if the Boeing QRH procedures are followed. All 737 Max 8 pilots are required to be VERY familiar with that Boeing publication as some actions must be recalled from memory.
Lion Air of Indonesia has a very questionable safety record and the crashed aircraft had been “snagged” several times without the proper repairs to the Angle of Attack sensors.
The most recent crash in Ethiopia is very fresh and little information is available except the fact that the pilots struggled with the pitch control of the aircraft.

The black boxes will reveal more information as to the actions of the flight crew.
Focusing on the aircraft type itself as opposed to focusing on human factors is a huge mistake.
Here are things the Red Velvet Seulgi Wendy Yeri Irene Joy Shirt public and regulators should focus on were the pilots competent and was their experience level reported accurately how safe is a pilot that has 200 hours of experience how realistic is it that a 28-year old captain has 8000 hours of experience? (Most pilots fly 600-900 hours per year.
