To really foul things up takes a computer...

I guess we'll be finding out how good computers are at manufacturing emergencies out of situations any human could resolve...

(Not much information in the article. I wouldn' t be surprised if operations are restricted to hard VMC, and in California you can mostly afford to do that...)

I think the question is whether they will be better or worse at manufacturing emergencies than humans? AF011 and AF447 come to mind...

Sarcasm aside... I assume this thing cannot communicate with ATC? That seems like a huge limitation.

Gabriel and I have gone back and forth on this at length. The only thing that's clear is that they'll manufacture different emergencies.

if (VS > 3000 || VS < -3000 || (a bunch of other things)){
autopilot_disconnect();
console.writeln("What's it doing now?");
}
