262 Max talks with Tom Turner about an ATSB study showing that partial power loss is 3X more likely than complete engine failure. It also shows that that serious injury or death occurred more frequently in partial power loss versus complete engine failures. With full power or no power, pilots know what to do. But the uncertainty of partial power loss makes it harder for pilots to decide what to do.
