I thought I'd post this for a bit of a laugh ... I am interested to hear if anyone has similar experiences to the following ...
My computer is in a room with two other computers. I use my computer for Flight Simulator. Often, I will be flight simming at the same time as one of the other computers in the room is being used by another member of the household. It always seems to happen that the other member of the household needs to ask a question or start a conversation just as I am in the middle of setting up for landing and performing all the various necessary tasks and checklists and radio frequency changes and turns and airspeed adjustments and all that other stuff that requires a fair amount of concentration to perform correctly and with no margin for error. And, worse, usually on finals, they always seem to want you to turn around and look at their computer screen "just for a second".
Do these people not understand the workload and concentration that is required to get an aircraft on to the ground safely? Why is it that they generally don't need to have a converstaion with you whilst you are in cruise? It always seems to be during the complexities of the landing phase of the flight. It's worse if you are flying the big jets with things happeing a lot faster for you than in the smaller GA aircraft. Hmmm.
Does anyone else "suffer" from this or something similar?
