Hey Sabenaboy,

Great to hear that times haven't changed since our Sabena times!

I mostly fly raw-data u to cruise-level unless wx or traffic is an issue. Most guys here are ok with it, with the occasional FO who complains about workload (get another job then if you can't handle it, you would never have passed a Sabena check) or is lecturing me about how mr. Boeing designed the aircraft to be flown through the autopilot (biggest bull$hit I've ever heard)...

Proficient rudder-stick pilots are more economic than automation operators. Fact.

Any airline that prohibits ther pilots to FLY, should be put on the blacklist as they are more dangerous than most which are already on it.
