Hi guys I heard this saying and just wanted to know if any of you have heard it, I think it sounds about right.

An Airplane Flies a Private Pilot
A Commercial Pilot Flies the Airplane and
An Airline Transport Pilot Flies the Airplane


Sounds about right to me,

An Airline Transport Pilot MONITORS the Airplane

Except when the autopilot is INOP like happened to me last night on the way to IND.

Let me play with some graphics here:

Pvt. Pilot: ^v^v^v^v^v^v^v^v^v
Comm Pilot: ^--v-^-v--^-v-^-v-^--v-^--
Atp: -------------------------------------

That's supposed to be my hand indicating how steady the aircraft flies


I know, it'll be a strecth for some of you but work with me people, work with me.

Haha, I thought that was the EKG of the different stages of the flying career. Or, it could be brain activity at cruise!
