Re: Investigation gone quiet on AA300 incident

Clearly you have never flown an Airbus. Just because you have you hand on the side stick, does not mean you are manipulating the controls, as it doesn’t move. It’s not like a Boeing with a yoke. I always keep my feet on the pedals and hand on the side stick, just in case. And I too am a check airma...

Re: Investigation gone quiet on AA300 incident

I would fail any pilot who does not have their hands and feet on the controls in a critical phase of flight. They need to take over quickly in the event of incapacitated PF. Then you have no business being a check airman. If you have 2 people flying you don’t have anyone flying. Clearly you have ne...
