Way back when, being an airline pilot meant people thought you were the coolest person in the world. Even today, the life of an airline pilot is still a bit mysterious to most passengers. What exactly goes on in that flight deck during the long flight?
Captain Eric Auxier, who also happens to be a writer and blogger, produced a great video detailing a day in the life of an airline pilot. From wake up call to shutdown checklist, Auxier illustrates not only what he does before and after a flight (with some added humor along the way), but also what happens when his Airbus A319 is cruising along at 32,000 feet.
