Here is Donald Trump’s new suggestion. Modern planes are too complex in the wake of two deadly crashes in the past five months. President Trump has said that the additional “complexity creates danger” and obstructs pilots from making “split second decisions” to ensure their passengers’ are safe.
“Airplanes are becoming far too complex to fly. Pilots are no longer needed, but rather computer scientists from MIT. I see it all the time in many products. Always seeking to go one unnecessary step further, when often old and simpler is far better,” Trump tweeted.

He added: “Split second decisions are… needed, and the complexity creates danger. All of this for great cost yet very little gain. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want Albert Einstein to be my pilot. I want great flying professionals that are allowed to easily and quickly take control of a plane!”
His remakrs come after UK, China, Australia and many other countries grounded the Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft. Today morning India too announced that it is grounding 737 Max 8 aircrafts.
The aircraft crashed in Indonesia last year and in Ethiopia on Sunday killing all 157 passengers on board.
The 737 series is one of Boeing’s most popular planes but the Max 8 model has raised safety concerns for possibly hindering pilots’ ability to overpower automated functions.
America’s Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) said on Monday that it believes the Boeing 737 Max is airworthy.
Boeing has also said no new safety guidance is planned for the moment. “The investigation is in its early stages, but at this point, based on the information available, we do not have any basis to issue new guidance,” the company said in a statement.
