Unhappy Pilot error claim objectively unfair

The fact is that Boeing promoted the MAX as requiring little to no conversion training from a 737-800 - an hour on an iPad was one quote I saw. In that context any inability of crew to cope with differences with which they were not familiar, and which had never been incorporated into any simulator, cannot be the principal cause of either event. Pilot error based on informed hindsight has no place here.

Having said that, yes, I have speculated more than I should have about the role of MCAS, but the inferences are there to be drawn.
