Tom Brown?? He is right on the mark. Great observations and he does a great job of writing what I have been saying from the beginning. “The dreaded visual approach”, truer words were never said. One cause of pilot deficiencies in “stick and rudder” or hand flying is that the companies discourage hand flying because the autopilot does a better job economically. One wag in my company said, “if you want to fly, go rent an airplane”. Sort of bit Asiana in the ass, huh?

I would say it bit the passengers as well.

It all comes down to saving face even if it endangers those whom these Korean pilots fly in their planes.
Remember that one New Zealand referee Keith Walker was physically assaulted by Korean boxing officials ?
I say ? all American and European costumers boycott flying on any Korean airlines until they change their attitude towards their training of their pilots.
Even if it cost you more with a plane ticket fly only US airlines to a Asian country.

Well the same standard or attitude even here in the USA in the liberal mindset in hiring people and in government.
It's not about who's qualified, or competent, it's all about racial quotas or keeping a certain group happy.
Hillary Clinton and John Kerry were never qualified or competent to be Secretary of State.

I agree.
Saving face, that was a big deal when I was in Korea, during those 5 tours.
I don't imagine that it has changed any at all.
