In disagreeing with everyone else on the planet about Boeing's decision to not tell customer companies or pilots about a new stall prevention mode, an ALPA chairman explained that flying airlines is really just like sitting around watching TV, no knowledge about aircraft systems required at all. If something breaks or the plane begins to plummet to the ground, all you have to do is change the channel or maybe turn off the TV and go outside for some fresh air. From the article: https://www.seattletimes.com/busines...ion-air-crash/

In an interview Thursday, Capt. Todd Insler, chairman of the United branch of ALPA, the Air Line Pilots Association union, broke ranks with his counterparts at American Airlines and Southwest Airlines who earlier this week publicly complained that this wasn’t disclosed to pilots during training or included in the 737 MAX pilot manuals.

Insler said many systems on an airplane work in the background without the pilot’s knowledge. He compared it to watching television: “I don’t need to know how it works.”

Even better, when the plane disobeys, he gets stern and reminds it who is in charge even if he has no idea what's going on or how to fix it, because he doesn't need to know how it works. So if something breaks, he uses the force or maybe harsh words, maybe even a spanking paddle.

“If the plane doesn’t do what I want it to do, I make it do so. If it’s not responding, I make it respond,” Insler said vehemently. “There is plenty of feedback as to how this airplane flies, more than enough inputs and opportunity to recover.”

What a pompous idiot. He speaks like a pilot whose greatest challenge so far has been his confusion on autopilot modes.
