Re: Stunning fail
"the microprocessor is not redundant."
Actually, it may well be. It may prove possible to simply remove MCAS, re-certify the type and retrain the pilots accordingly. On the other hand it is also possible that the plane would then prove too unstable to be safe, in which case the sensible thing would be to integrate high AoA response into the main digital flight control algorithms and stop pretending it is a bolt-on extra. Either way, the MCAS microprocessor goes.
