Very nice post!<quoted text>
Sully is just one example of hundreds. Before a pilot even gets a job at a major airline they have already had a career in aviation. Most all pilots I have known have dealt with extreme situations that could have caused serious injuries or death had they not handled the emergency in the manner in which they did.
You may not be aware that we train for all sorts of failures in the simulator. Including dual engine failures. Flight control malfunctions, extreme weather and microburst recovery etc. Pilots also have to prove their skills every six months / 9 months to the same ATP standards as the day they received it. Not even doctors / lawyers have to do this.
So if you really believe that 75% failure rate,consider traveling by train. Better yet, take some flying lessons so you are more informed.
P.S. Auto landings are not too common (1 in a 100 maybe) and are hardly "auto" . When they are accomplished require the pilot to properly program and monitor the performance of auto systems. It's not just pushing a magic button. If its not done in a certain order. It won't work. It takes special training and certification as well to legally attempt them.
The hiring plan is in stark contrast to the Fort Worth-based airline's months-long effort to cut costs as it restructures in Bankruptcy Court.

You little people need to get back to work and stop whinning.
Either quit your job and find an employeer who wants to listen to your whinning about no pension and no union contract, or shut the hell up and go back to work.
I have to worry about what private university to send my kids next year. Thank god I received my management bonus, otherwise I would have to send the kids to a state university.
