I really don't want to get too far involved in the "pilots should know how to keep their planes on the taxiway" argument, but I do feel this needs to be said:
Never criticize ir soeculate before you've been incthe position yourself. I am planning on training to be a pilot (when I go to college in a few years
) so I can't wait to see what I learn. Many things seem so much simpler than they are, and I am waiting to see what I experience when (if) I am sitting up front.
As GoBoeing said, this stuff isn't as simple and easy as it seems from the outside. Plus, this GoJet (I'm not even getting into the WN
argument....) was in bad weather. Had this been on a sunny day, it PROBABLY wouldn't have happened.
I just suggest we stay on topic and try not to demean or label people for things that are just not true.
