Ultra light aircraft pilot here with 242 hours of flight, i actually use the software on my phone as guidance because the maps are more accurate than my plane's gps and if you've actually flown a plane you would know that the phone is not a distraction at all because everything happens much slower than a car so the phone is not a problem at all, its stupid to even be discussing this

Well, the autopilot does most of the flying anyway, so there's no reason the pilots can't be texting or whatever while the computers do all their work for them.

Actually, because the autopilot does such a large ammount of the actual flying, it was proposed some years ago that the pilots should remain on ground, flying their aircraft by remote control, if at all. This would prevent them from panicking during potential crash scenarios, allowing them to calmly right their airplanes, and not make rash decisions. This also would keep pilots alive so that they could report what went wrong after the flight, preventing future crash scenarios.

Just because they weren't banned before doesn't mean that pilots were using them rampantly. Most would take pride in their job and not use them without someone telling them to.

I've also heard that there is a .04 BAC limit for pilots. I don't know if I'm ok with my pilots drinking brewskies before they fly. Whether or not this is true idk.

I prefer John Stewart more than Seth Meyers in terms of news and comedy

I'm learning to become a pilot and I pads and I phones are used for maps especially on some of the older planes with no GPS.

So if they aren't currently banned from using these things, that still have web access and likely cell access for their phones, why the **** do I need to keep my phone off the entire flight? Huh assholes?

This makes no sense, when you're flying there's probably an autopilot in use except for landing and taking off, and what the hell's going to happen if you're distracted for 2 seconds while answering a text message? You're 30,000 feet in the air, at least 10 miles away from the nearest plane; do the airlines think that cell phones are going to prevent the pilots from successfully dodging birds or something?

Seth Meyers is funny but his delivery is annoying.

He should honestly be in more skits, but the head writer never is, which sucks.

The fact that there's a spelling error in the words makes me believe this is fake. It's the FAA not FA as in Federal Aviation magical fairy princessistration...

using ipads are better. my brother is a pilot, instead of using 5 different books of maps (because they have to have updated maps of every airport they land at) they can download them before the flight, and have them all on one tablet, instead of flipping through books.
