Fly the plane, that’s what you are there for.

The automation is an aid.

Those of you that can’t grasp the concept that the pilot is solely responsible for the flight path, and not the autopilot, need to grow up and finally take responsibility for what you are doing.
Stop blaming the system for incompetence.
Its a scary aviation world we are getting in to, where the new generation of pilots are looking to blame the system for unintended and undesirable flight paths, rather than take responsibility for being the Pilot in Command!
The Boeing automation is simple and easy to understand. All you have to do is read the books....
Boeing also assume competent and trained pilots are flying their aircraft.
What an outrageous assumption to make!!! Who would think that competent and trained pilots would be in command of jet transport airplanes! Oh the horror of requiring such a thing!!
grow up.

A well-rounded, balanced view of the current state of the industry...
Well stated. If the pilot does not understand the if/thens and the cascade of sequences involved in the system processes, it is the systems fault?

There is absolutely nothing in placing blame where blame belongs.

The system is there to HELP you fly the ac.

The pilots job is not to be there to take over when the automation makes a mistake. ummm, never mind, that was not the original intention of the automation.
