People say that flying is highly automated. That has some truth in it, but it isn't entirely correct. Physically handling the airplane is only a small part of what being a pilot is about. The majority is about airmanship. This includes everything from making fuel calculations to weather and pre-flight briefings, walk-round checks, safety briefs, comms handling and so forth. not to mention thinking ahead of an aircraft that moves at eight miles a minute.

The hardest part of being a pilot today is trying to decipher foreign people trying to speak English through the radio

+Conor Corrigan i don't have an airplane ... i just have a small ship .. !!!    but preparation and planing is like 50% of the job.   And route control, verifications  and system checking is like 40% ......  actually you don't "pilot" more than 10% of the trip .... !!  nice video indeed .....

 I am ordering some of these for Christmas! They are awesome. I know nothing about how to fly a plane, but I enjoy to look at the people who do! 
Cool, thanks very much! :)
Not sure what feels eerier and lonelier: flying over open ocean or frozen tundra.

I really like this channel, I really do. but the editings are need some attention imho. for example in this video (first officer I guess) says we gonna do a walk around. then we jump straight to cockpit which is ready to fly! in another video which features a Turkish Airlines 777 flying to Tokyo Narita, misses the approach, and in the next shot they are landing in İstanbul Turkey :)

What's the name of the song at 6:50...very soothing!
I've flown on AC015 before, my past experiences on Flight 015 were all Westward flights.  The flight used to cross Canada, going up to Alaska, then cross the Strait of Bering to Siberia, Mongolia and then China, and finally to Hong Kong. How come in this video, Flight 015 is shown as an Eastward flight? The plane flies North to Greenland, then down Russia, Mongolia, China and finally to Hong Kong? For the Toronto to Hong Kong flight, what is the benefit of going Eastward vs Westward?  Thanks.
