I’ve been wondering this for a while now:
with flying being 90% automated, does flying as a pilot feel just as boring as flying as a passenger sometimes? Flying to vacation destinations isn’t the most fun thing in the world to me so I wonder how I would hold up with it being my CAREER.
I know there is a lot to do before a flight, at the beginning of a flight and end of a flight, but for the most part, does it feel the same as flying as a passenger? Or is it completely different from a pilots perspective?
Put in another way, could you fly as much as a passenger as you do as a pilot and be content about it? Or would flying that much as a passenger drive you crazy?
