New York plane crash
My thoughts and prayers are with those that were killed in the plane crash in the Buffalo area last week. We now learned that it was landing on autopilot and it was against policy to fly a plane on autopilot in icy conditions. I am sure this event will at least force the FAA to adjust policy and procedure when dealing with the use of autopilot on planes of any size. If nothing else it will force more extensive explanation of procedures in pilot training classes.
