    No need, they can just shut MCAS off for the ferry flight.

    As long as they are skilled enough to fly it without. Read an interesting article recently (sorry cannot remember where) which discussed the lack of training, reliance on auto pilot of new pilots. Over recent years there has been such an increase in air travel that there is a shortage of well trained/experienced pilots. Apparently it is particularly an issue in Asia.

    Yes, this has been an issue for the past decade or more. Read about P2F training if you want to worry yourself. It does all sorry very worrying but it's hard to reconcile those worries with the improving flight safety records.
