Auto Pilot vs Human Pilot | Who Is Really Flying Your Plane?


who’s really flying your airplane the
pilot or the autopilot I’ll explain it all coming up hey 74 crew welcome back if you don’t
know me my name is Kelsey I’m a 747 pilot my channel 74 gear is all about
aviation today I’m here in Anchorage Alaska I know I’ve come here a lot but this is a view from my hotel room it’s very
common for people to make the assumption that the autopilot is doing all the work
and while the technology for this continues to improve it’s not quite
there yet for it to do everything in this video I’m going to explain when the
autopilot is flying the plane and when the pilot is flying the plane let’s get
into it as you walk on the aircraft most people tend to look into the cockpit
well at least I do nerd and usually you’ll see the pilots are up there
smashing a bunch of buttons and the computer and what we’re actually doing
is loading up the route that we’re gonna be flying so that way the autopilot
knows exactly where we’re going and we get a picture on our screens which let
us know this is the route that air traffic control is expecting us to fly
and you’ll notice that the pilots have their charts out and they may be talking
about different things about the flight and it’s actually one of the busiest
times for us when you’re getting on the aircraft
now once that main cabin doors close to the aircraft the flight attendants ask
us if we need anything and give us any additional information that we need
before we take off and then we’ll get onto our flight and we get to start
doing the stuff we actually enjoy which is flying the plane instead of doing
paperwork or putting things in the computer but how much the pilots are
actually flying the plane depends on a few different things and there’s quite a
few misconceptions out there I’ve been thinking about it recently and I’ve come
up with two reasons why there’s this misconception that the pilots aren’t
actually doing anything up there first back in the day when I was a kid we used
to get to run up to the flight deck once the plane was in crews once the plane
got into the cruise the captain would make an announcement and say any
children I don’t remember what the age limits were I was probably five but they
could come up and look up in the flight deck and what you would do is jump out
and climb over your parents and get into the aisle and run up to the flight deck
and just Pelt questions to the pilots and then usually after a three or four
they’d get annoyed with you and tell you to go away now during that time the
autopilot was obviously on one pilot would be listening but the reality was
as both pilots would be turned and talking to you even though one guy was talking on the radio
which I wasn’t really paying attention to I was just excited to be up there
unfortunately thanks to a few special someone’s that party is over now the
only people coming up on the flight deck are the flight attendants and they’re
either coming up to bring us food or to relieve us so we can go into the
bathroom so when they come up there all they’re seeing is that one guy has
talked it on the radio and the other guys leaving obviously it’s not like
we’re doing a lot of work up there so that is the only impression that they
have when they come up onto the flight deck so it’s reasons like that that I think most people think that we’re up there
doing nothing except telling inappropriate jokes I would never do
that and pounding all the good snacks that we stole from the flight attendants
basket which she had made perfectly and told us not to touch guilty as charged
now I want to tell you a quick story about the time that we had a flight
attendant ride up on the flight deck with us when we do a certain type called
a repo flight which is a repositioning flight meaning we’re moving the aircraft
empty without passengers from one city to another city that could have been
because of a maintenance issue it could have been weather or it could have just
been that that was the original plan that they knew they were gonna drop
people off and not pick anybody up from that city when we do those types of
flights often a flight n’t will be able to come up into the flight deck and sit
up there during takeoff and landing pick me pick me now I really enjoyed doing
these repo flights because the flight attendants get it really see what it is
that we’re doing up there because what they only see is when we’re on the
ground and filling out paperwork or typing stuff into our computer or when
were up in crews and we’re not really doing very much so I think it’s very
cool that they get to see what actually goes on for takeoff and landing and I
always love as we line up to the runway before we actually take off I always
look at them make sure they’re ready to go and I always love that look on their
face it’s that ear to ear smile they are so excited to be up there and it reminds
me just how cool my job is so in this story a couple years back we take off we
get through 10,000 feet we finish all of our checklist I look back and I said
pretty cool huh and she said to me this is maybe one of the coolest things I’ve
ever seen in my entire life I think she was under the impression that all we did
is sit up there and do things like pressing takeoff then autopilot then
land she said something else to me I’ll never forget she said I had no idea how
much work you guys were actually doing and
now I understand why it’s important that we don’t call you below 10,000 feet next
time you’re on a flight I want you to listen through about 10,000 feet you’re
gonna hear a bell or a ding or a noise and that’s a way for the flight
attendants to know from the pilots we’re through 10,000 feet and out of sterile
sterile is a term that we use in aviation which means everything below
10,000 feet is business only there’s no unnecessary chatter up on the flight
deck or from the flight attendants so how much the pilots are actually flying
the plane depends on a few different things one of those things is the
airport there are some departures that the aircraft has to fly specific routes
on and during that that autopilot will usually get turned on around 400 feet or
different altitudes pretty low below a thousand feet depending on the plane
that you’re flying and for us honestly it’s really boring to have to turn on
the autopilot at 250 feet when you know that you’re gonna be flying the next 12
hours but rules are rules now that specific airport or departure
doesn’t require us to do that then the pilots will have the option to actually
fly the aircraft every pilot is different some pilots will choose to fly
it through 10,000 feet some will fly it all the way up to the initial cruise
altitude it really depends you’re making the other pilot do all the radio
communication and turn the knobs and do everything else while you’re just
enjoying flying the plane it’s a little bit of a rude thing so usually if the
air traffic control radio traffic is really heavy
I’ll have them engage the autopilot so I can assist with them and we can both be
paying attention to everything that’s going on if we’re looking for other
planes or trying to avoid weather things like that now landing is the exact same
thing it depends on the pilot in my experience in the smaller aircraft the
pilots are actually pan flying the aircraft a lot more and in my case some
of the earlier plates that I flew did even have autopilot so I had to hand fly
all flight the whole cruise takeoff landing everything I had to do all of it
but those smaller aircrafts are a little bit more like hot rods so air traffic
control knows that they can swing them in and make them into tighter turns than
what we use normally see from a larger aircraft the thing is is with the
autopilot it’s not always very fast to react so a lot of times if they’re gonna
put you on a tight turn or things like that to get you into land you have to
turn the autopilot off to get the plane to
do what you wanted to do because it’s gonna be moving a lot slower than if you
were actually hand flying the aircraft on landing the aircraft I would say the
average is usually three to five minutes that the pilots actually disconnect and
hand fly the aircraft and even more common than that is probably below 2,000
or 3,000 feet I typically don’t see pilot disconnect the autopilot before
that especially on longer flights so if you’re sitting in the back how do you
know when the pilots have disconnected the autopilot so there’s two real ways
to know when the pilots have disconnected the autopilot is you’re
coming in to land the first is if you’re sitting towards the front of the plane
you’re gonna hear a bell or a whistle or something learning the pilot that the
autopilot has been taken off the other way to know is if the plane starts doing
this then you know in most cases who’s flying now it’s no surprise with all the
time that pilots are spending with flight attendants we tend to marry them
but what are the other two professions that pilots usually marry I talk about it
right here I look forward to hearing from you until then keep the blue side
up

    Arent you afraid that in the very near future AI will take over the pilots job in total?

    Another thing I was wondering, if you guys behind the wheel or joystick ever met the controllers in the towers and on the radio that keep you save!
    or even joke about after all the traffic chatter was completed?

    Just watched a great movie about those controllers, who are responsible for dozens of flights within minutes, while a pilot is only responsible for one flight!

    If you were flying from Chicago to Los Angeles, the autopilot is engaged and then something really bad happens on the flight deck, does the autopilot continue to guide the plane to the end of the current leg or does it fly the plane to Los Angeles? What happens when the plane reaches Los Angeles? Does it orbit LAX until it runs out of fuel?

    I think the most important switch should be the one to switch off all the electronic helpers and have complete manual control (fly by wire). Many of the crash report stories I have seen on TV are about a confused boardcomputer by a frozen angle of attack sensor (or other) and the pilots fighting the electronics, stalling and crashing before being able to disable that stuff.

    When I was a little kid, my parents would put me on the NY/Boston shuttle flight, and my aunt and uncle would meet me in Boston. The flight attendants always made a big deal about a little girl flying alone, and gave me snacks and things. One of these times, I was invited up to the cockpit. I sat in the co-pilot's lap. He put his earphones on me, and I heard "dit-dah, dit-dah", and I said I knew what it was. It's for navigation, and if I hear a morse code A or N I know I'm not flying in the direction I ought to. If I hear a steady tone, it's okay. He was very impressed that a six-year-old girl knew this, and he asked me how I knew. I told him I had read about it in my dad's Popular Mechanics magazine. He was even more impresssed. But then they had to land the plane in Boston, and I had to go back to my seat.

    Just thinking on autopilot vs human – you know what would be fun to explain some day, would be to go over fly by wire – to show how current aircraft’s primary flight control systems aid pilots. Not exactly autopilot – just reducing pilot workload. Things like bank angle protection, stall and overspeed protection, pitch control and stability augmentation, thrust asymmetry compensation, turn compensation, roll control through the outboard ailerons and spoiler panels etc. Stuff like that 👍🏻 The video may need to be in multiple parts though, and include alcohol 😂

    Question: On occasion, the pilot(s) will be hanging out near the cockpit and will greet some of the passengers as we walk off… Is it appropriate for a cheap seat passenger like me to give him a knuckle bump and say "nice landing bro" as I walk off? Idk, it seems like an aviation guy kinda thing.

    granted i have personally flew a 2 seat tomahawk and a 4 seat Cessena but i had the most fun when i rode the jump seat on a Twin turbo prop Saab 340 from Reagan National to Boston during a non-revenue flight after my airline cancelled the flight. After we got up to cruising altitude the Captain removed his headset turned and asked if i had any questions. This will be a memory that i will never forgot and has permantly infuised into me the love and desire to fly.

    1999. I worked as a civilian IT contractor for the Royal Australian Air Force base in Wagga Wagga. I flew commercial between Wagga Wagga and Sydney once a week. One time they messed up my ticket so I had no ticket to catch the last fight out of Wagga Wagga back to Sydney on a Friday night – and the flight was full. The ticketing agent told me: "Don't worry, I will ask the pilot to let you fly the jump seat." Once again, this was 1999, Australia, before those special people who ended this party 2 years later – and I was in Manhattan on that day. I was the last passenger to get on the plane – and I didn't pay, and I had no ticket, and there was no security at this airport to begin with. After I climbed to the top of the ladder, I was told to turn to my left instead of right, and enter the cockpit. And this is a very small airport, 2 civilian airlines, share the military runway. The terminal has 1 shop called "Milk Bar", 2 airlines, 1 employee would show up when there is a flight, and since I flew once a week, they know my face. I sat on the jump seat, directly behind the 2 pilots. This is a SAAB twin Turbo Prop, 39 passengers. My knees were 1 inch from a bunch of buttons. I didn't want to accidentally touch any buttons so I declined the meal (which was a pretty good meal compared to today's bag of peanuts) in case I spill anything – starvation was the price to pay for such experience. The pilots even gave me a headset to put on to hear them!!! And the biggest thing I learned on that day: Even in such a tiny airport, with a plane landing or take off maybe once every 2 hours, there were so much work for these 2 pilots to do before take off! There conversation was all business before we got all the way up there. After we got up there, their conversation was all about lack of pay. I kept my mouth shut the whole time. And landing in Sydney at night? looking out of their windows? The pilots told me: "Best view in the world!"

    I fly Cival Air Patrol, as an observer. The observer is is in charge of where to put the aircraft, and confirm with the PIC we are flying the proper patern (creeping line search, expanding square, etc).

    I was flying a counter narcatics mission, where we look for marijuana plants. This means I need the plane at 1500 AGL and cuise at most 80 Knts. Any higher or faster, we will not see the plants.

    The plane we were using was a C182 with a Garmin G1000. We started our search at 2100 AGL and 100 Knts indicated. My pilot was an ATP rated pilot who flew 737s. I asked him to get is lower and slower. He dialed the numbers in for 2000 at 90 Knts. The plane went into such a nose up atitude that I thought the stall horn should be going off. I told him to take the plane out of autopilot and use the flight director in his head. Autopilot is great for cruise, but not low and slow, which is CAP's beead and butter.

    He ended up putting 10 degrees of flaps, and getting us level at 1700 at 85 knots. Didn't find any plants that mission, but did learn that big jet pilots need to learn not be impressed with the technology and fly the plane.

    Oh, and: "Sully" Sullenberger was quietly fired for unnecessarily destroying a US Airways Airbus A320. He had every chance in the world to land his airplane on a piece of CONCRETE at 2 different NYC airports. "He became disorientated", and that cost US Airways anywhere between $90 – $120 million; + Court fees, liabilities, and punitive damages. Do it, try it, I did it in a simulator under the same circumstances. How many videos have you seen showing this flight duplicated in a Real Flight Simulator – an Airbus simulator, in Europe. Why you'd think there would be hundreds of them. I mean ones that show trying to land back at KFJ or La Guardia. What is so 'Talented" about landing a jetliner in a long wide smooth lake with very little speed? It wasn't talent, it showed the resiliency, durability, and strength of an Airbus A320.

    He Kelsey can you make a tutorial on how a passenger can land a 747. One pilot did it for a 737 in a similator. Just curious on how similar it may be.

    Man when I was maybe 6 years old while we were deplaning I asked a question to a pilot and he let me sit in the cockpit in the captain's seat. Ever since then I always wanted to be a pilot. Its moment like these that stick in your mind forever. Thanks alot ruiner of all fun bin laden, I hope you like being fish food

    I LOVE your channel. I am one of those people that is really nervous and afraid of flying and sometimes have little mini panic attacks…. but after watching your videos, you seem to be putting me at ease a little bit. Thank you

    ALSO, concerning this video, is it POSSIBLE, for autopilot to actually land the plane, or is that something the pilot MUST do him/her self, no matter what?

    now that the computer can successfully land an unpiloted plane under any and all circumstances on an aircraft carrier, you are needed only for the passenger's state of mind. Physically, the machine can do it all. All.

    I hope you read this but talk about MH370…Talking about what your inner circle of fellow pilots think about it would be great…I'm hoping to get my license within the next 2 years

    Kelsey, do you mind doing a video on landing at the wrong airport: e.g the dream lifter that landed at jabara instead of KIAB. Do you always have some type of guidance to the runway on during landing( ILS//GPS) to a avoid this, I just have such a hard time understanding how two dream lifter pilots ended up at the wrong airport. Have you ever landed on the wrong runway? Say 2R instead of 2L? Or taxiway ( Harrison Ford)

    Thanks Kelsey. I enjoy your videos a lot. Can you answer a question about the build up of rubber that occurs on a runway when tires skid as a aircraft lands? What do airports do to reduce or clead up the skid marks? Thank you.

    I am currently going through training to become a FA, but I also loooove to learn about planes and their operation, all the "behind-the-scene" stuff 😉.
    And I can't wait to go in the cockpit during cruise 😊…
