Financial Times: Return to service of Boeing 737 Max could depend on pilot training

From the Financial Times:

Getting the grounded Boeing 737 MAX fleet back in the air is complicated. The main question arising now is how will the MAX pilots be trained (or retrained). If it is in the scarce MAX simulators, getting the type relaunched could take longer than first expected.

It is becoming more likely each day the MAX will be lost for most of the Northern Hemisphere summer season. Regulators and airlines are likely to again push back their schedules without the MAX.

    Not sure what retraining would be needed the drill is the same as for the NG and as I understand the fix will compare the two AOAs and if a disagreement is sensed the MCAS will only trim forward for 2.5secs not 10 seconds as it was programmed to do.
