So, you are now certain that MCAS was the cause of this accident? You are certain that the Eithiopian 737 was in the flight envelope where MCAS might activate?

You know that it can quickly be turned OFF don't you?

You know that most normally trained pilots would NEVER get into the flight envelope where this would kick in don't you?

You know that the OTHER pilot would say something to the flying pilot well BEFORE the plane would activate the MCAS don't you? "Hey, watch your bank angle." "Hey, watch your pitch attitude."

Now, if some low time pilot whips the nose up and cranks in a steep turn and MCAS kicks in and both guys don't recognize what the jet is doing, there could be trouble.

There is NO normal flight envelope that calls for the nose to be high and to be in a steep turn. Never.

Now, IF the MCAS input data that will activate this is erroneous, then that will need to be fixed. But again, it can be turned OFF if the pilots have been trained properly.

Let's see what the FDR and CVR have to say, then carefully analyze the Data...........
