Have you ever struggled to enter a flight plan or an instrument approach into a GPS navigator? If you fly with an autopilot, do you know how to use it, and how to use all of its modes? Today we talk about the cockpit voice recorder transcript, just released by the NTSB, of two Pilatus PC-12 pilots who crashed in North Carolina. What you’ll hear is chaos in the cockpit. Unbelievably, the two pilots struggled during the entire 27-minute flight, to enter a flight plan into the aircraft’s FMS system.
