After watching many hours of Air Disasters, I have come to the conclusion that some countries have a better airline safety record than others. I am in the camp that attributes the accidents to a lack of proper training and stick time mixed in with the quirky MCAS software. I would hope that all the airlines who are employing the services of the 737Max, are requiring substantial simulator time to get used to the new characteristics of the plane. I have read that the MAX series is a lot different from the regular 737's that to an extent could have been a new plane designation 738 or whatever. I would think that the pilots stepping up to this new plane from a regular 737 would have to get x-hours simulator time to get use to the new plane.
