Hard to believe a reversible unreliable airspeed would cause a crash like this. I would think they have some sort of memory item for pitch and power setting for an unreliable airspeed.

How about a pitot heat switch with 3 positions , Off, On, and auto, so that it automatically goes on when airborne AND oat is -10 to +5 Fahrenheit

Sad that something as simple as pitot heat takes down an entire aircraft. I feel sorry for the families.

That is nothing new by any means. Our airplne has pitot heat come on once airborne regardless of OAT.

Johnny, How many accidents and deaths does the industry/Russia need to have before it is mandated across the board for pitot heat connected to the WOW switch ?

How about proper checklist discipline to ensure this doesn't get missed?
