I’d have to agree with what some of the others have said already. My biggest fear is that this will be relied upon too heavily. Essentially a crutch. Being able to manage energy, plan, and critically think during a situation is what makes a pilot “good”. They’re a good pilot. Let’s just go back to the basics. You lose and engine, you refer to your GPS or map to determine your location and find the nearest suitable airport. If you can’t do this within a few seconds, then you as a pilot are not situationally aware and are in a poor position to be sitting in that pilot seat.
Smaller GA aircraft are getting to the point where they’re getting technically advanced but they’re not quite to the point where task saturation is overwhelming the pilot. If a pilot is task saturated in say a G36 Bonanza, then the pilot may not be fully qualified/prepared to fly such aircraft given lack of experience to fly a high performance aircraft. Too much aircraft for a pilot.
On the other hand, I do see the the benefit in having such feature. It’s a safety tool, but I’m afraid the disadvantages towards the pilot outweigh the overall benefits. You’re starting to infringe on some of the basics of piloting and that’s a bit of a concern.
Interesting stuff. Its crazy to see where technology is going in aviation with automation.
