Pilots only do this when they reach a good cruising height,
and from then on the autopilot takes over. Pilots only really
come back into it in the descent when human judgement
is needed to correct the landing position due to wind and **** .
Plus, if any danger is near, sounds made by alarms will alert the pilots.

I am a pilot and let me tell you Ipads are a life saver i bought one only for the purpose of flight planning which means i have aeronautical charts on there it gives me my weather reports and for pilots who fly small planes with out sophisticated navigation instruments it can be used as an FAA approved GPS. it is making the flying world a whole lot safer and could even be used for primary flight controls.

ive always wondered- do planes have cup holders in the cockpit?

Oh god I can see the apple propaganda now... "Fly you plane with an iPad!" Until the app crashes and everyone dies
#116 to #114 - achmedmuhammed (01/27/2013) [-]
ipads will never have control over a plane but to be used as GPS the FAA requires an antenna be mounted to the outside of the plane to keep it from losing service

Your username makes me nervous about you being a pilot.

someone finally caught that. im a helicopter mechanic and gunner as well
User avatar #121 to #120 - vatra (01/27/2013) [-]
Nice, helicopter mechanic sounds much more difficult than standard mechanics.

FAA requires you use the maintenance manual and its just a big picture book a 5 year old could do it
User avatar #124 to #122 - vatra (01/27/2013) [-]
Well damn, maybe I should get into that.
#126 to #124 - achmedmuhammed (01/27/2013) [-]
you can make really good money as well just be compitent with tools and general mechanics
User avatar #127 to #126 - vatra (01/27/2013) [-]
I'm already pretty good with general mechanics, but thus far it has only been used to avoid paying a small fortune for car tune ups/repairs.
#129 to #127 - achmedmuhammed (01/27/2013) [-]
thats how i started small aircraft engines are just like aircooled beetle engines get yourself one and familiarize yourself thats what i did and jets are just turbo chargers so maybe find yourself a junk yard turbo you can turn them into jet engines fairley easily plus its just fun
User avatar #131 to #129 - vatra (01/27/2013) [-]
Fair enough! I might just do that in a year or so.
#132 to #131 - achmedmuhammed (01/27/2013) [-]
theres a lot of community colleges or technical schools that get you certified for fairly cheap you will need an airframe and powerplant certificate good luck
User avatar #135 to #132 - vatra (01/27/2013) [-]
Thanks mate, I just need to save up enough money to even attempt the first step, you know? haha.
#137 to #135 - achmedmuhammed (01/27/2013) [-]
join the military they pay you to get certified
User avatar #139 to #137 - vatra (01/27/2013) [-]
I have been intending to do that soon.
#140 to #139 - achmedmuhammed (01/27/2013) [-]
better now than later the gov. is cutting the military drastically they mat stop hiring
User avatar #141 to #140 - vatra (01/27/2013) [-]
Very true, I just want to finish getting my associate degree first, plus I'm already certified as an EMT, so I should get more options than most once i join.
#144 to #141 - achmedmuhammed (01/27/2013) [-]
for sure go army by the way
User avatar #147 to #144 - vatra (01/27/2013) [-]
I'm not sure what branch I'll go into yet, probably see which options I like most after taking the test.
#150 to #147 - achmedmuhammed (01/27/2013) [-]
go with the one that offers a bonus
User avatar #152 to #150 - vatra (01/27/2013) [-]
There we go, that will just about do it!

Take it from someone who was in the Corps and Navy. Go army, unless you have a wild streak.

That's an aircraft inspection, that's not a pilot's uniform and all the instruments indicate the plane's not flying (unless it's perfectly gliding through the air, in which case alpha as **** )
User avatar #39 to #26 - rplix (01/26/2013) [-]
But...when you are driving, there are things you can hit. Other cars, street lamps, etc.

In the air, there isn't the same sort of danger. I don't know how to explain it.

not exactly one mile. its typically a thousand feet of clearance between two aircraft.

a few nautical miles horizontally depending on the situation. as for vertical separation it can be as little as 1000 feet once again depending on the situation.

I actually just pulled up Web of Shadows on Youtube and screencapped for this one. If you want gif, though, just go to the Bionicle tag on Tumblr. Cross-Wired-Freak should have everything you need.

best part is that autopilot flies the plane they just land and take off :D

because controlling an aircraft in the air is the most difficult part of flying, right?

As an actual pilot this ban is retarded. i use my cell as a gps map, my tablet as a flight planner/gps unit, and i fly just fine. no crashes of any kind.

I do not work for a pilot company therefore, I do not have said "pilots hat"
User avatar #63 to #16 - YllekNayr ONLINE (01/26/2013) [-]
Well, to be fair, that's kind of a confirmation bias, seeing as had you suffered any crashes, you wouldn't BE here to tell us it's a bad idea.
#167 to #63 - bagertastic (01/27/2013) [-]
You do have me there. i was attempting to state that the use of electronics should not be banned if the pilot is using them correctly such as a aid to situational awareness.
#180 - ungcc (01/27/2013) [-]
What's that sound?

It cracks me up that everyone's all seriously upset.
#98 - anon (01/27/2013) [-]
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
User avatar #10 - galaxyguy (01/26/2013) [-]
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.
#52 to #10 - airdick (01/26/2013) [-]
my apologies but this is the stupidest ******* thing ive ever heard..
User avatar #67 to #52 - galaxyguy (01/26/2013) [-]
My thoughts exactly. But it does make some sense.

For instance, the materials inside planes, particuarly the seats (I think it was the seats), release noxious fumes when they catch fire. In the event of a fire on the plane, having the pilots present increases the risk that they be knocked out and rendered incapable of flying their aircraft, effectively dooming all aboard.

Now imagine if the pilot was instead sitting in the control tower, controlling the plane remotely. No chance of knocking out due to noxious fumes, sudden depressurization, diving sickness (due to rapid descent), et cetra.
#71 to #67 - airdick (01/26/2013) [-]
I do see where you are coming from, and it does make sense in a way

But i do still feel that when it comes to remote controls, many more things can go wrong. For instance, when you're completely depending on remote control, it is so much easier to lose contact or signal to the plane. Where as when theres a pilote on board even if computers start to fail, theres still the possibility of manually controlling the aircraft, right?

As for toxic fumes and such, a) why wouldnt they just re design and use non harmul material and stuff (although possibly expensive, its better than the remote control idea) and b) why not make the cockpit have its own ventilation system, as well a fire proof it and totally isolated from the main cabin, so if anything does go wrong, the flight attendants could be trained to deal with it, while the pilots, the trained pilots, are locked in ensuring the safety of all by doing whatever is necessary.

In my eyes, I just beleive there are simpler, more convienient ways to deal with these sorts of problems.

We all know KISS, keep it simple stupid. (not saying anyone is stupid, its just the expression)
User avatar #8 - thinkwithportals (01/26/2013) [-]
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.
#17 to #8 - bagertastic (01/26/2013) [-]
As a pilot I use my tablet and phone with Garmin pro as a situational awareness aid, it is not a distraction if used correctly.
