Actually all pilots do is participate in Landing and Takeoff, not flying to the actual destination in anyway unless they have to avoid restricted airspace for some unexpected reason.

He's the one who flies the plane. I'd say he has a better idea of what it's like than you do.

It is if you plan to not land. Like many "pilots" these days.

Modern planes practically fly themselves, you pass the classes and you practically get paid to sit there and hey! Look out the windo.

Pilots really don't do much. It's mostly automatic.

I am talking about commercial airlines.

As some one who has commercial airline captains as parents I can say that what takes up most of their time is all the paper work and little 'flying' is actually involved. And by flying I mean take off and landing although some airports have auto landing systems now like SFO.

My father is also a pilot (not something I like to admit off the bat) and yes paperwork for actually doing the flying is the major part of the job.

However adjusting flight controls during the flight is part of the job as well.

I've been in the sim watching my dad take a Requal before. Pilots have to make sure stuff sticks to the flight plan. We're not even discussing tricky flight either cause there are some bad airports to fly to that take some skilled pilots.

Pilot reporting in, here. **** you. You have know idea how much studying and practicing we go through to be qualified for what we do. I officially recruit you to do what I do for a day. I'd like to see how many people you kill.

What I think he means is you don't actually steer the plane but the automated system does the actual flying. I would assume the pilot would still have to make sure everything is regulated, but like I said, I think he meant the auto pilot does the actual flying and the pilot does everything else.

I understand how much qualification and skill is needed. It is the pilots who take over whenever something is not going as usual, and in case of any emergency, the one who saves all their asses. But flying commercial airplanes is safe, so it's probably standard procedure most of the time

there is a place at my airport where they do that. did it for my 16th birthday. i did takeoff and the only thing i didn't do was the floor pedals, which we didn't use that often.  i was a Cessna, no real 747 or anything, but the concept is the same. its easier than driving a car.

Takeoff is one of the easiest phases of flight. Now, what's the proper procedure for approach, landing, recovery from a stall/spin and can you cross-reference all flight instruments at a glance? What radio frequency are you on, how do you refer to them, what is your request and what is the proper terminology? Will you be able to comply with their commands? Are you being assigned a different runway then you planned for? Is it long enough? You'll have to compute a new landing distance based on the new relative surface wind conditions to find out. What level should you fly pattern at or what is the proper approach plate to use? What are your approach speeds and do you have enough fuel to comply with a hold? Anybody can control a plane in cruise flight. It doesn't take a genius to know how to roll left and right, that forward is down and back is up. Any video gamer knows that. But how do you apply that knowledge to perform necessary maneuvers and land the aircraft? That's 3% of what we do in the air.

the dials were self explanatory, the whole communication with the tower was easy because all we needed to do was request takeoff and landing and know what  to call the plane (November Julia foxtrot) and he offered to let me land but said if i ducked up i paid for the plane, which i cant afford. either way, you missed my point. you said day one real danger, blah blah blah, and i did that.

so what you are saying is that if something malfunctions they don't do much? And the plane will land/fly itself to safety? huh.

I'm saying there's little they could do in that situation. Sure, a random person can't just fly a plane, but it's not like it's rocket science.

Though everything I wrote up there is truly erotic to me. ******* a friend's mom and cumming inside her, in every single orifice, is erotic and sexually thrilling, imho. Oh and yes, shoving a phone in her ass while it's vibrating is awesome too.

It's still pretty new, I'm not sure if it's a fully automated landing, I think they still have to apply reverse thrust and stuff but everything now is virtually automated.
