Air Crash Observer: Pilots out of Control on Autopilot
In March 2010 India's aviation regulator said that most pilots in the country are not adequately trained to fly an aircraft in the automated mode, which is used on half of all domestic flights. "From now on they should fly their aircraft only in the manual mode until they train their pilots to operate the automated technology," said the Directorate General of Civil Aviation.
I wonder how many other nations this applies to also and if the bean counters have their way then it could happen elsewhere.
