Captain Sully Suggests New Simulator Training for Boeing 737 MAX Pilots

Famed retired pilot Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger said that pilots should experience the challenging situation 'for the first time in a simulator and not in flight with passengers and crew on board.'

Speaking at a congressional panel today, he stressed the importance of simulator training.

"We must investigate accidents before they happen," he said.

He continued, "We must make sure that everyone who occupies a pilot seat is fully armed with the information, knowledge, training, skill and judgment to experience to be able to, be the absolute master of the aircraft and all its components, systems, and of the situation simultaneously and continuously throughout the flight." Leaders from Allied Pilots Association, leaders of the Association Flight attendants and Sullenberger were invited to testify before the subcommittee that is looking into Boeing and the 737 Max airliner, which is grounded after the two crashes that killed 346 people.
