The europeans have grounded the 737 max and so have many other countries, should we ground it until they its been cleared to fly again?

It could go both ways.

On one had it is real world to ground them

On the other there are plenty of aircraft in our system that are prohibited these days (Concorde, old AC without hush kits etc)

So,no dissenting voices? So that means nobody will object to me grounding the fleet?

Hi,
why should we ground any aircraft ?

many pilots ( including me ) are using their FlightSim as a hobby, not like professional flights but having fun !
We are close enough to reality.
if we are about to take it that seriously, where will we end to ?

The European airlines ( like Lufthansa ) are avoiding the Syria airspace on their routes to Asia due to the possibility of being attacked.
DO WE respond also to that ?
I dont think so.

Flying here is still a simulation, so... NO GROUNDINg of the B738max .

best greetings
Robert

Robert I agree with you. There was not much feedback from the initial request, it took over 3 months for anybody to respond. When I first said this I expected the grounding to only be a week or two but it continues with no end in sight. Just as we allow VA's to use the Concord after it was grounded, your free to continue using the 737-Max, although I may temporally set it to 'out of production' since Boeing is not delivering any right now.
