I know Boeing has a override system in place on their 737 Max jets but they need to make it a one switch override . Not a sequence thatís to confusing to intelligent pilots.

I had people tell me for years that tablets would replace the modern PC and that touch screens were the future. They were wrong on both counts.

Airbus is all electronic. They have to call an engineer in light when there is a problem. Boeing's all have manual overrides.
