Pilots, what do you do when you’re bored while flying?

Sat May 18, 2019 3:16 am

When you are cruising with the autopilot on, what do you do when you are bored when you do not have to be constantly monitoring the gauges, flight path, etc.? Do you usually chat with other pilots in the cockpit and flight attendants? Or do you like read the manual as if it’s a nonfiction book?

If you work for an airline, what are you allowed to do and what are you not allowed to do that aren’t prohibited by government? And if you are flying long haul and you are on the jumpseat, what do you usually do?

Read a normal book, talk to your colleague, sodoku, drink coffee.
