Various websites have stated that during the 737-MAX crash in Indonesia, the pilots could not pitch up because of a faulty AOA sensor pitching the plane down.
The stabilizer has a rear fulcrum and front jack screw. The elevator, positioned by yoke, is hinged to the stabilizer. If the yoke is pulled back, the elevator moves up. Then the stabilizer must move down, either automatically or manually, to remove the yoke loading. However, if the yoke is fully pulled back, why doesn’t this force the stabilizer down directly so that the pilot always has total control of pitch without checking the flight manual or pushing switches?
