Hi everybody,
i agree with most of you, is the lackness of training and too much complacency on the automatism that create a false sense of security among the pilots.
I currently fly one of these A 330 and i see people been slaves of the machine.
Even simple tasks like disengage the ATHR is considered a strange thing.
My background is a solid stick and rudder flying but with time everybody become lazy and don't want to give away the luxory of the automatism.
Yes if you don't touch anything probably the plane still fly by itself but is not easy to not become emotional and nervous in a situation like that
