Does anyone know of a definitive source document re autopilot use on an RNP approach; do I have to fly it AP-in, or is it dependent upon each aircraft type’s certification?

JPs at Cranwell in the 80s, when dual you’d put each others Face-screen Handle pin in. Can’t remember if you could put your own pin in when solo! 🤔

The Kegworth avoidable accident was largely down to very poor CRM. Do I even recall the captain taking over as PF and taking the AP out!!

Well it’s not airframes they are short of, although another birdstrike just after the event in the Midlands.
