    Evidence: One of the first officers that the author rode jumpseat with "was bothered by the feature involved in programming the computer to cross a fix at a certain speed and altitude. The problem is the computer will achieve the required parameters before the fix. 'You are really never sure if it (the computer) is going to make it or not. And if it is going to mess up, it's too late to do anything,' the pilot said." (page 55)
