It is rumoured in airline circles that cockpit levels will soon be reduced to a pilot and a dog - the dog to bite the pilot if he tries to touch the controls. This joke came from a British Midland pilot at the end of a closely argued case for a return to real "hands-on" flying training ("...loss of flying skills", 18 May).
