I just read an article in a mag, think it was the recent AOPA mag, about this.I guess I'm old or something because I still look outside to see where I am and prefer wiggly needles on round gauges to tell me how the engine is doing.
Of course, such a philosophy can also be taken to ridiculous extremes. Like when my wife and I were at Sun N Fun last year and overheard two guys regaling an attentive audience with statements like "instrument pilots are such whimps - if you can't tell whether you're upside down in IMC by feel, you're not a very good pilot".They described the two types of pilots.
1) Us, fly by the senses
2) Others, fly by the gauges.
