flyer43, please tell me you don't think the above is a better way to fly than a modern machine with coupled hover, NVG, etc.
Far from it, I was simply starting a discussion with reference to how things were in the past. When I look back at how I used to operate a million years ago, I think that I felt I had reached the pinacle. In truth, I was only just scratching the surface and was lucky to get away with not having an accident.
I'm all for improvements, provided they actually enhance safety! What I am concerned about is exactly what you and many other have stated - is the training sufficient to ensure that the pilots skills are adequate for the task, and how can the standards be maintained and ensured for all pilots?
