Irony of Automation in Aviation

These statements are so true!

Computers do those things well that pilots already know how to do well, much better than pilots. But computers do not know how to do those things that a pilot would like to do well.

   In essence, the irony is that pilots are to oversee an automated system, which they do poorly, and take over when there are abnormal conditions, which they may not be very good at either.
