Is there any remaining doubt that humans cannot do two things at once -- specifically, drive and talk on the phone?
Now, a Canada Transportation Safety Board report says people can't fly and talk so well either, at least in the case of a crash in British Columbia last November that killed a man.
In the report, released this summer, the investigators found the pilot spent much of the flight on his cellphone and was unable to maintain a consistent altitude during the calls.
The graph looks like the path some people take when driving and talking/texting.
Jeepers. If you are going to engage in distracted flying, at least ante-up for a decent autopilot...
While I don't necessarily disagree with the premise of the blog entry, I don't know that a report can make a claim about 'people' when the subject is only one person.
"The 2012 olympics showed that people, at least in the case of Michael Phelps, are perfectly capable of winning 22 medals and becoming the winningest olympian in history."
