He said Boeing had failed to disclose the existence of MCAS to pilots and to provide adequate 737 Max training materials for pilots trained on older 737 models. While both Carey and Sullenberger recommended additional training requirements for 737 Max pilots, Sullenberger said simulator training should be mandatory before the aircraft returns to the skies. Previously, pilots transitioning to the Boeing 737 Max from prior 737 models were given a short, self-administered online course that did not mention the MCAS system. The Boeing 737 Max has been grounded worldwide since March. A source with knowledge of the process says the FAA certification flight of the Boeing 737 Max is expected to take place in the next two weeks.
