      I think those days are gone from the barnstorming era of 1930's or 60's. Like any industry at the present recruiting new employees go through a wide range of tests to see if they are suitable. What you want is someone who is levelheaded and not a hot head, who can fly the aircraft safely and competent and yes just like Chesley Sullenberger.

        Possibly the best stunt work I seen was in the Airport 1980 film, when a stuntman ran underneath Concorde on take off.

          Software will now deal with the daily routine of flight. Stratified ones will do even better (see earlier).
          When something will go wrong, it will potentially cascade into something catastrophic rapidly. It is then logically in the interest of the industry to see and recruit their pilots as a backup failure system that will react in an environment where the decision process has been compromised or did failed completely (unexpected case of failure, instruments failures, non-relevant checklist, communications unavailable...). The Pilot will have to react instantly and take decisive action right on the go. Pilots that master the core of their competencies only will have a chance of success: stick time, 3d awareness, crash procedure training, aerobatics basics (and understanding), flight time "by the pants" and obviously old fashioned navigation training will be at the forefront of what does constitute for modern airlines... an useful pilot.

              It refers to the early age of aviation where every flight was a stunt (see 1st post of the thread)

              A pilot with a stuntman background... A one trained to land every time his plane in the Hudson river, glide a 242 tones aircraft for hundred of miles or recover from a spin at night in the most severe thunderstorm...

              Let's let the Engineer deal with the day to day routines of flight. Let's grd operator manage the flight routes, the schedules, the administrative tasks. Let's the airlines Manage the flow of passengers in front of the increase number of administrative and legal procedures. Let the Software deal with the expected, the attended, the known situations...

              And let the pilot be a flyer, unsophisticated, rough, Cocky if possible but the one that can handle the most serious, sever and unexpected situation. Yep , that one will certainly have to be alone in the "cockpit" for obvious economic reason (cost of training), but let's bring back the Stuntman!
