Nasty Autopilot Secrets

Publicerad
 
As you probably know, every major airline and lots of the not so major ones capture flight data and use it as part of safety reporting programs — pilots refer to them as “snitch systems.” Any time there's a deviation of any kind, the system automatically reports it and, understandably, identifies the pilot behind the misdeed. Not every mistake or oversight is going to get you busted, but there are a lot of them that will. Some will get you fired. The fairness of such a system is open to debate,… (www.flyingmag.com) Mer...
