It isn't the system I am worried about. It is the fact we didn't know about it or had procedures in place to deal with abnormals. This happened with the MD 80 many years ago and it too led to a deadly mishap. The Automatic Trust Reatoration system on the MD 80 was unknown of until the crash. After AA lost a A300 we also found out that the definition of Maneuvering Speed taught everyone as a student pilot was not so. That those types of revelations continue to occur worry me.

Concur, Boeing didn’t think it was worth while to tell the operators about this little Easter egg.

People still get that definition wrong even nowadays (still use the old version, I mean). The T-6B NATOPS manual even had the old definition in it until about three years ago and the API knowledge was more or less cut and paste from there... that drove me batshit.

So this was created to prevent a stall and the 1500 hour rule was put in place because of a stall? Are guys in THE SHOW flying that close to the stall margine? I figured you would fly with a bit of a cushion.
