Greetings fellow airliners.net members,

Really hoping there is some really nice pilots out there who could spare a minute or two and help me out completing this quick survey. It is mostly all ticky box and there is no need to put your name on it.
I am currently undertaking a degree in Air Transport Management and part of which involves me conducting a research topic. I am a first officer on a 737 and I have chosen to research a topic that is particular close to my heart, manual flying skills in the airline industry.

I have at this point not been able to come up with as many completed surveys as I need in order to compile a set of results.

You would greatly assist me if you could fill it in and either post it as reply or to me direct.

Your help and assistance is greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards and thanks in advance

Steve
