FAA Encourages Pilots To Hand Fly More

We found an article in Flying Magazines online version (see the original here) discussing a recent FAA safety alert.  The FAA is concerned that pilots are relying too much on automation, and not retaining proficiency in “hand flying skills”.  The article by Stephen Pope notes that the FAA is encouraging pilots in general, with corporate and airline pilots in particular, to hand-fly their aircraft more and more often.

How much do you hand-fly your aircraft?  Leave us a comment!
