Pilots only do this when they reach a good cruising height,
and from then on the autopilot takes over. Pilots only really
come back into it in the descent when human judgement
is needed to correct the landing position due to wind and ****.
Plus, if any danger is near, sounds made by alarms will alert the pilots.

That's an aircraft inspection, that's not a pilot's uniform and all the instruments indicate the plane's not flying (unless it's perfectly gliding through the air, in which case alpha as ****)

But...when you are driving, there are things you can hit. Other cars, street lamps, etc.

In the air, there isn't the same sort of danger. I don't know how to explain it.

not exactly one mile. its typically a thousand feet of clearance between two aircraft.

a few nautical miles horizontally depending on the situation. as for vertical separation it can be as little as 1000 feet once again depending on the situation.

and guess what, we don't need pilots, cause autopilot does nearly everything, the only reason they are there is to reassure the passengers.

I am a pilot and let me tell you Ipads are a life saver i bought one only for the purpose of flight planning which means i have aeronautical charts on there it gives me my weather reports and for pilots who fly small planes with out sophisticated navigation instruments it can be used as an FAA approved GPS. it is making the flying world a whole lot safer and could even be used for primary flight controls.

ipads will never have control over a plane but to be used as GPS the FAA requires an antenna be mounted to the outside of the plane to keep it from losing service

thats how i started small aircraft engines are just like aircooled beetle engines get yourself one and familiarize yourself thats what i did and jets are just turbo chargers so maybe find yourself a junk yard turbo you can turn them into jet engines fairley easily plus its just fun

You do have me there. i was attempting to state that the use of electronics should not be banned if the pilot is using them correctly such as a aid to situational awareness.
