How Do We Keep Pilots From Crashing Planes?

How Do We Keep Pilots From Crashing Planes?

Aviation has become technically safer and safer. Is it now time to address the pilot as a safety concern? The community has successfully addressed wind shear and controlled flight into terrain. Unintended consequences are certain, as we are seeing in the case of locked cockpit doors, and overly specific solutions are usually not flexible enough to work. Distributed cockpit operations with crew support on the ground could be one means of addressing the problem. The industry is so safe because it has tackled its problems. Technology should be able to help us failsafe pilot actions.
