Pilots say FAA proposal for Boeing Max training needs work

U.S. pilot unions say the Federal Aviation Administration should improve its proposal for training pilots how to handle a nose-down pitch of the Boeing 737 Max, which was grounded after two deadly crashes. The union representing Southwest Airlines pilots said Monday that the FAA should reduce the number of steps pilots must remember and carry out in the type of emergency that occurred before both Max crashes. Pilots at American Airlines said that Max pilots should train for such an emergency every two years, not every three years as the FAA proposes.
