Washington, D.C. - A failure, which happened during a Republic Airways Embraer E175 flight last year in November, is reminiscent of what led the two 737 MAX to crash, investigators found.
The National Transportation Safety Board issued ten recommendations to the Brazilian and U.S. aviation regulators.

The failure was also difficult for pilots to detect, which occurred in the 737 Max crashes that killed 346 people.
The regional jet carrying six passengers and four crew members had just lifted off when the captain noticed the plane was trying to aggressively pull the nose up into a climb.
The captain and copilot followed an emergency procedure they'd memorized for the problem, but it didn't stop the malfunction, the NTSB said.
