    Very true. Airline training today is mostly rote memorization. While there is a place for that, 21 day training footprints and ground school via computer based training is not teaching understanding of how systems interact.

    I couldn’t agree more: Human-systems interaction (specifically SA being a huge component) and training. These two items were actually the main ones that all the expert pilots I interviewed during my Ph.D. pointed to when dealing with aviation weather and associated systems and services.
