  1. I think,it’s about time for the faa and all aviation admin to reconsidere the onboard activities recording scheme with a new aproach.Instal a live video camera in the cockpit .That way the flight operation center will be able to monitor the flght crew,not to keep an boss eye on them but to have a glance of what is going on in there.
