Re: need an off switch

'There should be a single switch that unconditionally inhibits all automation, returning full manual control to a pilot. Not a panacea, but it might have prevented this accident.'

But what if one of the a pieces of automation stopping you from having an accident? These aircraft aren't designed to be flown in full manual control, there's always some form of automation at work keeping it in limits.
