It is rare, but I have a friend who was flying a 747 about a year after finishing his Commercial Pilot's Licence.

a good friend of mine used to be a captain - he said the pilot is the only one who actually does anything and that consists of about 45 seconds of actual flying per flight - the take off and most of the landing is controlled by the autopilot - that's why they dont get paid very well anymore (just like a robot taking over at an industrial plant) and when something does go wrong the plane is rarely saved

Thats an amazing view and yeah all those switches and lights look overwhelming but I have spent years inside c.o.c.kpits and can say its really not that overwhelming. Each panel of switches are grouped for a certain function so you really only train your mind to think of that area for whatever function you are trying to accomplish. After you picture that panel you eventually instinctly can tell where each switch is. They are also laid out to where the most comonly used switches are easiest to reach when your hand naturally rests on that panel.
