105 Max talks about the recent Boeing 737 MAX crashes, and the lessons that all pilots can learn from these accidents. Here’s a summary of his 8 Lessons Pilots can Learn from the Boeing 737 MAX Crashes:
#1 Know your aircraft systems intimately
#2 The documentation isn’t always complete. Join a type club.
#3 If you touch something and things get worse, undo what you did.

#6 Know how to disable the electric trim system in your aircraft.
#7 Make sure you can overpower the autopilot
