Look at the cockpit photos and you will see that there is a commonality between them. The acft range from a 50 seat acft up to a B-777

Maybe you should get your facts straight before you create public outrage, media. Just a thought.
It's a shame that so many hold the opinion of media in high regard when in reality it should be held in contempt. Especially with a dominate record of talking through their hat. So many gullible suckers. We'd be a much better place if generally people didn't believe a word they heard, and took proper measures to prove points themselves. However, standard laziness has a lot to do with this also

haha, IMO this is complete horseshit looking at it in both directions. Yes, the "intern" read the names aloud (and laughed hysterically). And also, odds on he no Dum Gai.

However, I always reserve the right to be Wai Wong.

I didn't read the first link that contained 50 or so others. Thought you said easy reading? Maybe you could direct to which one, or ten

That is easy reading. Thats FAA rules for 121 (airline) flight ops. Then each airline has it's own particular rules depending on various facters and wht they train to do.

Pilots must then learn the acft they will be flying. There are multiple systems that must be learned with various points commited to memory while others require a checklist for emergency action.

Try reading this link that describes the basic flight control system of the E-145 series acft.

You obviously have quite the passion for aviation. I was only concerned with the difficulty of transitioning from aircraft to aircraft. The link you gave me must contain over 200,000 words. I barely find time to read 500 pages a month.

It isn't that simple, and this is the problem with trying to describe how events may not be as cut and dried as they appear at first glance to the general public.

Try this link. this is basic aeronautical knowledge applicable to all pilots. Kind of the basic bible of flying.

So, read the E-145 flight control link and then read the B-777 flight control link.

It is work to learn a new acft type, but it is done all the time. This is what pilots do. Lots of people have multiple type ratings in various jet acft.

The B-2 pilots do not fly the actual airframe that many hours per month. They get sim time, and fly T-38 trainer acft.

Whitmon AFB T-38



On the surface it does not seem logical to have
bomber pilots flying advanced trainers to keep current, but it makes sense if you know some addtitional info. The T-38 just happens to have approach and takeoff speeds not unlike the B-2.

There are all kinds of things that people do not know about how aviation works. Here's a neat little thing. Most Air Force Pilots don't have a pilots license.
