Please humble request to Boeing to make all Airplane with dual Angle of attack device. Left side and right side.
Standard default equipment.
I do not think Airbus makes plane with only one angle of attack. Single point of failure.

Same certs for a shorter aircraft with MCAS. And WN just placed a huge order. Guess we'll see what the FAA does.

I never said it was limited to MCAS. In the past, the FAA has skipped testing of previously approved components. Not so with the certification of these models of MAX airliners. This extended beyond MCAS to any systems it may touch.

I believe it's because those two didn't have a modern EICAS like most all other new birds. The FAA made that mandatory before they were certified but after the other MAX's were.
