Pilots using devices when flying - has the world gone mad

News that an airline is equipping its pilots with tablet devices will send shivers down the spines of nervous flyers the world over. If you think it dangerous when a White Van Man holds court with his mates over the phone while travelling at 40mph in a built-up area, imagine a pilot travelling 500mph simulating that Ride of the Valkyries moment made famous by Francis Ford Coppola,  while approaching turbulance.

At least CCTV and The Old Bill won’t catch the pilots in the act.
