Turn Off The Damn Autopilot

If you’re a pilot who use’s the autopilot a lot you should take the time to watch this video.  The speaker makes some great points about how some pilots get so dependent on the autopilot that it actually increases work load in some critical situations instead of reducing it.  I personally never use the autopilot to fly approaches, even in low instrument conditions.  I like to hand fly the plane as much as possible not only to keep my skills up but because I like flying approaches and don’t want to share the fun with a damn electronic box.
