I have a friend in the San Francisco Bay area that is in tune with this that will agree with the need to use pilotage, not automation, to safely fly an airliner.

Sully was a good example of how the Hudson incident was an example of how piloting skills are very important and the automation that day was worthless because it couldn't handle it.

Sully did what all of us should be able to do but if the trend goes to automation and we forget how to really fly the next time will be a disaster.
