"And upon hitting the tarmac, pilots must quickly and fully engage the auto-breaks."

I love the "experts" who wrote this. How do you quickly and fully engage auto-brakes? They are automatic! That's why they call them automatic-brakes. You set them before you land, not after you "hit" the tarmac.

It probably just sounds better to the public when we 'engage' something...
