Re: The reason that the Max series need MCAS

Some years ago a mate of mine, regular visitor to South Africa, said that after a perfect landing in a 747 in Jo'burg the second officer announced gleefully and with much respect and admiration for his boss that it was the final landing by the captain, due to retire after a long commercial flying career, and done entirely manually i.e. without the electronic whiz-bangs.

Question from a non-pilot : Don't they train pilots to fly in an emergency without the technology these days?
