Yep, this is what I was referring to. There’s limited simulator availability. There won’t be a MAX pilot whose brain won’t be seared by the heat of learning and knowing every aspect of MCAS and associated issues, and I believe the same of UA and WN pilots. But I think the simulator time is valued and useful.
