Cool

Hi,

This raises interesting questions about experience. What does it mean to have 10,000 hrs of experience if 7,500 or more of that time was spent staring at the computer flying the a/c. The reality of the modern flight deck may be closer to Pilot Staring and Pilot Doing Nothing. Talk about ennui
Always difficult to describe(evaluate) an experience comparing to a number of hours or age ...
A pilot can fly 10,000 hours very well (in full manual) and have little experience other than uneventful flight ... if no exeptional events (non-routine) occurs
In my job .. in one month (due exeptional events) I acquired more experience than I had been able to accumulate in 12 years ....
