שרשור מקצועי טכני לחובבי תעופה!

אתמול פרסם ה @NTSB מסמך תגובה לדו"ח האתיופי לתאונת ה #737MAX. בתאונה נספו 157 איש מהם 2 ישראלים.
השרשור מביא את עיקרי טענות ה NTSB.
נזכיר, בארוע עם ניתוק המטוס מהמסלול קיבל הקברניט #Stick_Shaker עקב פגיעה במד זוית התקפה שמאל (כנראה ציפור)...
...קבלת סטיק שייקר בניתוק הוא אירוע מפתיע ומטלטל אשר יכולות להיות לו סיבות שונות כמו תקלה, פגיעה פיזית במד ז"ה (מה שהיה), טעויות בחישובי משקל המראה, ביצועי המראה, מצב מדפים וכו'.
למעט 2 הראשונות הסיבות האחרות המוזכרות הן באחריות הטייסים ומשקפות טעויות בהכנת המטוס...

...ומשמעותן כי יתכן שהמטוס בדרך להזדקר. לכן בנוסף להתמודדות עם המצב המתהווה המחשבה של הטייסים כי יתכן והם אחראים למצב הקשה מוסיפה עומס ותחושת אשמה המקשה על הטיפול בחירום.

את השלב הזה עברו הטייסים האתיופים בהצלחה, זיהו שהמטוס שהמטוס מטפס ומתרחק מהקרקע...

Yesterday, Congress finally passed the must-pass, end-of-year budget bill. As usual, the bill was stalled to the last moment, so Congressjerks could cram the 4,000-page, $1.7 trillion package with special favors for their donors, at the expense of the rest of the country. 1/ A living room scene, featuring a sofa in the background and

This year's package included a pair of especially egregious doozies, which were reported out for @TheProspect by @leee_harris ( a grotesque retirement giveaway for the ultra-rich) and @dorajfacundo ( a safety giveaway to @Boeing and its lethal fleet of #737Max aircraft). 3/

"Total unit revenues are expected to be 7 to 8 points better than initially expected ... Driven by broad-based demand and pricing strength across consumer, business and international travel."

Strong guidance from @Delta today. $DAL
"The challenges we have now are in the other side of the house, the operations," Delta CEO Ed Bastian says at a Bernstein conference Wednesday.

Delta announced capacity cuts due to a variety of operational issues just before Memorial Day weekend: $DAL
Pricing will be up 25-30% (year-over-year?) this summer, says Delta CEO Bastian.

1. I watched Downfall: The case against Boeing this weekend on @netflix by @roryekennedy . Its sometimes easy to forget in the midst of tech and financial terms, that this documentary is first and foremost a story about human tragedy

#Netflix #737MAX
2. and this documentary no doubt leave you with a heartfelt feeling for the people who lost family and loved ones on those two 737 Max flights.

This documentary and @roryekennedy has a lot more on her mind, which I find both fascinating and interesting.
3. The case about the 737Max is a story about an iconic US company, losing its way. A company that built its reputation on selling safety and engineering excellence, who slowly but surely shifted focus towards quarterly numbers and short-term share price gains.

The clock is ticking on the final 24 hours of the Trump presidency. Let's take a minute to acknowledge how the inexperience and chaos of his administration directly affected aviation. 1/x
Trump's first major act was the first Muslim Ban enacted on a Friday(!) night, Jan. 27. Passengers took off with one immigration status and upon landing had another. This led to massive confusion at CBP & prompted airport protests across the U.S. 2/x…
This was the first time aviation had to deal with the fallout of an ill-conceived, in this case illegal, Trump Admin policy. It wouldn't be the last. Some "highlights" of the cluster the following 4 years would prove to be. 3/x

"Max-Abstürze..schreckliche Höhepunkt einer Reihe falscher technischer Annahmen von #Boeing-Ingenieuren, mangelnder Transparenz des Managements und einer grob unzureichenden Aufsicht durch #FAA." Boeing wird in dem Bericht erneut eine "Kultur des Verheimlichens" vorgeworfen. 3/3

Update INCIDENT Ukraine Int’l Airlines #PS752 to Kyiv from Tehran reported as crashed shortly after departure. Despite reports indicating “mechanical failure” as cause it is far too early to determine the cause. Anything mentioned would be speculation.

1) in all this #737Max thing, electrical/computer engineers like me trust/listen that what the aerospace engineers say. Whenever we say something (especially here on twitter), we get told: "what do you know?" and "oh, you're a programmer, go away". I'm exaggerating, barely...
2) good software engineering skills is a craft that should not be minimized. Yes, you, the pilot, might know PHP and wrote cool things for your web site. But you didn't sit 4 years in university to learn all the special skills to write good code and to doubt everything
3) coming out of engineering school, I didn't even want to get close to embedded software, I didn't want anyone to die from it. I had the impression that embedded system folks were semi-gods that made no mistakes... So, when I worked at Boeing, I steered clear from embedded
