Modern aircraft with its intelligence and automation.

Maybe a lot of people think, modern aircraft with its intelligence and automation, can realize automatic flight. This is obviously wrong. In some cases, the automation can reduce the pilot’s workload. But in other cases, when the automation system is not suitable, use it instead of increased workload. What level of pilots should know how to reasonably use the automation level. Sully says he is not a reverse technology, but he thinks that advanced technology is no substitute for experience, also does not take the place of skills and judgment.
Computer can only perform operations under the direction of a person, no matter is the pilot with hands or with the help of the technology of flight, fundamentally still rely on their brains to fly, they to the actual situation of external environment, such as aircraft, maintain accurate “situational awareness”, to use at any time for many years of experience, knowledge and technology for rapid, weigh everything they had at their disposal and their unknown things.
In the process of flight, the importance for the pilot, he is a manager. As a manager in the machine to run automatically, is always the one to decide when to use automated equipment to reduce the workload, give aircraft orders by computer instead of the pilot’s hands.
In addition, in some cases, it may actually increase with automation equipment pilot’s workload. For example, the local surface replacement of runway of instructions, if it is a manual operation, the driver needs to adjust the new runway in navigation receiver navigation frequency is ok; In today’s high degree of automation on the plane, but need to spend more time on the computer to choose a new runway, confirm new navigation frequency and track data, and check the map control data, in order to ensure accurate operation. As a result, tend to be on the computer by 10 multiple keys to complete the operation.
