i understand keeping course is easy with talking instruments

but i saw him on tv making a perfect land solo on a narrow runway

how did he manage?

The seat has electrodes controlled by the particular airport's ILS system. If the pilot deviates too far from the glide-slope he receives a series of violent electric shocks to correct his course.

Raaaid,

You've been watching television again, naughty boy.

I thought I told you to stay away from that demon box. It'll fill your head with all kinds of strange notions http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

I use to do PAR's (precision approach radar) when I would go into military sites. A good controller could bring you right down the center line.
After the final approach fix you just shut up & flew his commands.
he gave speeds, sink rates right/left heading commands to 1 degree. I've done them in a B737 right to 50 feet...they were very good...

The "passenger" performed all take offs and landings.
