Re: The reason that the Max series need MCAS

No, I was on an icy road, which required standard braking techniques for such conditions. Me pumping the brakes and the ABS trying to do the same thing meant the braking distance was longer than either I or the ABS alone would have managed. The problem is, you have to have trust in those systems, for someone brought up without those systems, it is a huge leap of faith to not brake "properly" and trust the car knows what it is doing.

If I had been too close to the car ahead, I wouldn't have been able to brake and steer around it.
