I've received runaway trim training on every 707,737,727,757, & 767 I've flown. Every experienced U.S. pilot learns and uses this procedure in initial training as well as subsequent proficiency checks.. Regardless of he cause of the runaway trim the procedure is universally know. It appears that there was some confusion, lack of awareness and improper training for these crews. American based airlines have flown the Max over 41,000 hours safely. It's not the airplane. It's the quality of the pilots and their training that is the real issue.

Flawed analysis, failed oversight: How Boeing, FAA certified the suspect 737 MAX flight control system
omg this article is absolutely horrific. Boeing are in deep shit if this is borne out.
Like all 737s, the MAX actually has two of the sensors, one on each side of the fuselage near the cockpit. But the MCAS was designed to take a reading from only one of them.

Lemme said Boeing could have designed the system to compare the readings from the two vanes, which would have indicated if one of them was way off. Alternatively, the system could have been designed to check that the angle-of-attack reading was accurate while the plane was taxiing on the ground before takeoff, when the angle of attack should read zero.

“They could have designed a two-channel system. Or they could have tested the value of angle of attack on the ground,” said Lemme. “I don’t know why they didn’t.”

The black box data provided in the preliminary investigation report shows that readings from the two sensors differed by some 20 degrees not only throughout the flight but also while the airplane taxied on the ground before takeoff.
