    What do ya'll do during flight?

    Like say you are flying a flight from New York to Los Angeles and you already established your maximum altitude. Now its just the matter of waiting until you get to the top of descent. What do you guys do?

    -Hang out at in the flight deck?
    -Do you go and do something else?
    -Read a book?
    -Watch TV?
    -Listen to some music?
    -Nap?
    -Tinker around the with controls and sit back and say "**** yeah this is my baby!!" lol.
    -Play the Nintendo DS or PSP?
    -Come on here and chit chat with the people?
    -Talk on the phone with your friends and say something along the lines of "Na na na na boo boo I have a sim and you don't?" lol
    -Ask your wife, girlfriend, soulmate, woman that you are in love with, to get you a beer? lol

    Me, since I have a make shift sim consisting of 2 monitors plugged into one computer on my "used to be" dining room table along with my laptop, I browse the internet, visit various forums. Since the speakers are turned up high I'll go out to the living room and maybe do some organization while listening intently for ATC to give me furthur instructions on switching transponder channels and stuff.

    Flying the aircraft comes to mind. Navigating is another. Cross-checking fixes and nav-aids, studying the STAR and approach, and keeping an eye on systems takes up my time. And then there are ATC instructions to follow.

    Why even bother with flying at all if you just punch on the AP and FMC and then find something else to do?

    I just input all of the waypoints in the fmc and activate and I'm on my merry way lol. I do keep an eye on the systems though. Last time, I flew a flight and did something else, I went to check on it while I was gettin something to eat and the darn thing was kareening towards the ground because the speed hold button disengaged, but it was still indicating that it was activated, so I finally leveled out around 4,000 ft and hit the button again and I was back to 300 NM and had to climb to 32000 ft.

    BTW, since this is mycockpit.org thought I might start a bit of a poll....who gets the most spam emails in a day. At our place it's about 30 a day.
