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.
Now that will be interesting, manually flying new generation aircraft, designed to be operated with the automatics.

Congested airspace, overworked controllers, poor infrastructure in most of the country and the regulator wants to remove the automation and have everyone flying by hand.

Get rid of all the expat pilots and rapidly promote the youngsters with little experience in either manual or automated environments.

Now where did I put my wizz wheel ?
