I don't think I want to be on a plane in a rain or snow storm and the pilot was trying out IFR for the first time.
*No worries, mate.* All the pilot does is make a few menu selections.* IFR is fully automated these days :-)

*Oh. Since this is the "Radar" thread when you said the pilot makes the menu selection I thought you were referring to how they got the meals hot.

*No. The galleys on today's jetliners are so complicated the pilots have no clue how to do anything in there.* They need the cabin crew just to make them a cup of coffee.* The "menu" I was referring to is on their flight management input screens.

*I gotta learn how to put those smiley faces on my comments!!!
