If the average General Aviation Pilot flies 35 hours a year then the vast majority of pilots fly not much more or a whole lot less.In 2005 43% of accident pilots have less than 100 hours total experience. We have to design for a lower standard of proficiency, as if all pilots are perpetual students.

We also know that under pressure that the best pilots will can make the same mistakes as a student. We have to make flying easier and there needs to be coordinated overall effort to put the improved system in one package from one source of collected and created best practices.

Ideally it would be inexpensive, have no batteries, stick on like stickers, no screw drivers required for installation, no FAA approval required. The simple paper or mechanical or analog computing would we resistant to power failure and Electro-Magnetic Pulse damage.
A small scale statistic is suggested that might predict an increase in safety of a on a large scale would be how fast a student can function without instructor interventions. A counter placed on the intercom could record the amount of time the instructor talks to the student. These countings could be compared between instruction of students in pilots not equipped with this new air craft operating system.
