Managing lots of things competing for their attention is what pilots need to be excellent at.

That's why you lock the door first. Also, are pilots being scanned, searched and groped for anything usable as a weapon even half as thoroughly as the passengers?
Right. Being a pilot requires excellent executive functions.
Someone who can't get the tasks "lock door", "incapacitate other person in cockpit" and "fly plane into ground" in the correct order has no business at the controls of a plane!
Right. A pilot trying to kill himself and everyone else on the plane by flying it into the ground will absolutely not kill the other person in the cockpit that may be trying to stop him.
Sorry, but having two people in the cockpit is a safety measure, not a security measure. It helps if one pilot has a heart attack, but it does pretty much nothing if one pilot is a suicidal, murderous maniac.
The black or Jewish printer should make every attempt to out-bid anyone else for this job. The resulting
Yes. The KKK would be shooting itself in the foot if they pulled something like this, so it's not going to happen. It would be quite funny to see what the consequences would be, though.
Sue due to your violating your contract.
Hire a private eye to track you down?
Not necessary if you fail to report despite agreeing to do so in the contract. This would only be necessary if the former employer suspects that your reports are not true.
How likely is it going to be even worth their time to pursue you
That depends on how many lawyers they have on their payroll that aren't busy doing other things.
Why, if you don't intend to break the contract, you'll never have to pay the $537M. So a sane person with no intention to break the contract could sign it without voiding their sanity certificate.
Heck, if an employer agrees to pay me $1M/month, I'll gladly live with a two-year noncompete clause and a $537M fine for breaking it. Where do I sign?
Which constitution explicitly bans misleading the people?
You suddenly show up in a customer-facing role at another company.
Your name pops up in patent applications filed by another company.
Your job is high-profile enough that your name can be found on the other companys website.
Your old employment contract also contains clauses about you having to report your employment status for the duration of the non-compete.
There are lots of ways.
Just word it differently. "For up to x months after the end of the employment contract, employer will pay employee x% of their last salary if they are not working in field Y".
Basically, a "carrot" noncompete instead of a "stick" noncompete.
But of course employers wouldn't want to pay for having their business model protected.
So how about an obligation to commit suicide after the employment contract ends? That would be the ultimate form of non-compete.
I would be curious what the penalty is for a non-compete.
It's usually a ridiculous amount of money. Of course, if the skills of the employee in question are in really high demand, the new employer might just consider to fork over defined penalty to the new employee so he can pay off his former employer.
Basically, I would be in favor of specific penalties for non-compete
Great. "The penalty for violating the non-compete clause is $537 million payable in small bills."
Without the major government intervention called "penal law", your loss for violating a contract would amount to whatever the other party of the contract tells their hired thugs to do to you.
