PantherSE writes: This might not be standard slashdot topic, but I think those of us in IT appreciates that automation only works best when the "golden path" is followed. The reason why you have 2 trained people in front of the plane is so they can take over when the autopilot decides the plane has left the "golden path". Problem is when they don't get a chance to practice, they get rusty; except you never want them rusty.
