Default Re: TAA

the CFI was telling our passenger in the back that I was doing a fine job of looking out the window for other aircraft and not getting seduced by all the gadgetry, which most people do -- probably because I deal with technology all day and am not impressed by gadgetry, he opined.
he said that most people end up head-down far too much because of all the whizbang.

but the truth was that there was no point in trying to learn a G1000 WHILE IN THE AIR, what with all the rest of the workload a pilot has (or at least, that this pilot has), and I had an expert sitting next to me, so I just let him run it, and I focused only on the primary instruments that I was vaguely familiar with because of flying the 777 in Flight Simulator.


me, I'm waiting for the system that has only a 39-pin connector that you can plug into the socket in the back of your head and fly by merely thinking about it.
When you sail on the Titanic, there's no point in going steerage.

73 total flight hours and counting -- now licensed to get myself into trouble, er, I mean, licensed to learn!
