Indeed. If the children of the magenta were occasionally required to fly a few gnarly 2D approaches the old way, situational awareness would be raised. Maybe they would eventually get ahead of the...

However, if we stopped wasting valuable sim time on familiar stuff (long-winded briefings, engine starts, taxying, SIDs & STARS at home base, ILS approaches etc) and reduced the amount of time spent...

Para, I hear you. I “worked” (quotation marks intended) for CASA for about a year. It was just like that wonderful Pommy TV series ‘Yes Minister’.

AI is unlikely to completely control aircraft this century, but what might an airline pilot's life look like by 2050? In the role of UAV pilot it could mean:
* No more airline food
