I assume you have an on-board computer to make all of those calculations / decisions ?

It’s all slide rules, paper maps and bits of knotted string. Nobody actually knows what all those dials and knobs do.

Yes. We use an iPad which has certified applications on it - the iPad also contains the backup documents if the application fails - and we have spare iPads just in case!

A bit off topic, but pilots used to have 2 stop watches, on the yolk / steering wheel, what where they for, and do they still use them ?

You cannot be serious, man!

But silly me, I'm sure that you forgot to mention the construction of a covered walk-way from the front door to the under-cover pick-up area in the car park.

What is the justification behind this scheme?

Besides making pencil-heads look busy that is....

I see you have 13 posts, are they all just as sarcastic replies, or are any of them relevant, to the topic in question ?

Are yours?

You should know by now that anything at the airport that needs overpriced and completely unnecessary building work never requires any justification.
