To the contrary, the reaction to the FAA’s delegation of some regulatory certification to Boeing during the 737 MAX certification process has reflected official and public unease. The response quickly focused on requiring that the FAA base its assessment of the plane’s safety fixes on additional outside review.

These character dispositions of pilots are formed through long bodily practice and cognitive formation. Of course, confidence and assertiveness are desirable only if the pilot (or driver) really does have an adequate grasp of the situation—a better grasp than the automation does. In October 2018, a Boeing 737 MAX 8 crashed in Indonesia, and then another plane of the same model crashed in Ethiopia in March 2019. As it happens, the 737 is one of those legacy designs that has been kept viable through iteration, as new systems get retrofitted to an airframe that never anticipated their necessity. In particular, it has been fitted with newer engines that are more fuel efficient, to keep the plane competitive.
