Safety board: Boeing should reconsider pilots’ response time
Pilots flying the two Boeing 737 Max jets that crashed in the past year were bombarded by multiple warnings that the flights were going dangerously wrong. Boeing has said the pilots should have been able to swiftly diagnose the problem and follow a longstanding procedure to fix it. But a report Thursday from federal accident investigators questions whether Boeing and the Federal Aviation Administration underestimated how a blizzard of visual and auditory warnings would slow the pilots' ability to respond quickly enough to avoid disaster.
