And suddenly I was thinking of Linda Keen


 

In commercial airlines, captains and first officers split the flying duties equally. But historically, crashes have been far more likely to happen when the captain is in the “flying seat.” At first that seems to make no sense, since the captain is almost always the pilot with the most experience. But…planes are safer when the least experienced pilot is flying, because it means the second pilot isn’t going to be afraid to speak up.
