Trouble is these modern, highly automated and computerised jets are so simple to operate that most of the time a school kid can fly them.
But when the computers and automation get glitchy, they suddenly need a pilot, and a good one at that.
It seems that most of the time, that pilot is right there, and ready- but when he isn't, we get AF447 or any of the recent 'loss of control' type accidents.
Maybe the memory action for some of these system failures should be 'Automatics off. FLY. Do nothing for a while. Think'.
