You Need a Human Pilot When the Airplanes Computers Fail

Boeing will fix the automation issues with the 737 MAX soon enough, but there will always be times when human pilots will be called on when computers and automation systems have failed them.

Regarding Holman W. Jenkins, Jr.???s ???Boeing vs. Pilots???? (Business World, June 1): Without question, the failure of the pilots to deal with a malfunction was a major factor in both 737 MAX accidents. But in the accident chain, and it is almost always a chain of events that cause an airliner to crash, the root cause of both crashes

The real mistake lies firmly with an aircraft manufacturer placing computer software on a plane to outsmart the pilots and not telling the pilots it was there, or what to do in case it malfunctions. That was the real error that cost 346 people their lives.

President Trump???s April tweet that stocks and economic growth would be higher ???if the Fed had done its job properly,??? is worth re-examining in light of market developments after Mr. Trump won his tussle with Fed Chairman Jerome Powell. Mr. Powell backed off his brief attempt at ???quantitative tightening??? under presidential and market pressure. Now that the Fed has ???done its job properly,??? where are the salutary results?
