Thanks for the answer!
At my company I flew what would be called a "regional" aircraft. I hate that term because we were flying to all the big "mainline" airports, just at some hours where there might be a bit less traffic. We also flew to smaller, more challenging airports where the larger planes (Airbus, Boeing) rarely went.
I bring this up because the "regional" aircraft do have a bit less automation than the larger ones. For example, we had 1 FMS instead of 2, thus limiting approval for flying approaches with the FMS. We had no autothrottle, meaning no autoland. What we did have, though, was a very good autopilot and Flight Control Computer.
But the most important thing we had were well trained pilots who knew how to make the most of what we had. We were Cat IIIa approved and never had to divert because of "no contact".
The best equipment or automation we had were good pilots.
Slamclick, I value your comments and those of all other pilots who want to be better pilots. We can all always learn more and we can always learn from each other. Thanks!
