I guess it's a matter of preference. I personally flew planes with both yoke and stick, and even though neither was "fly by wire" (ex the DA42, Piper Aztec), the visibility provided by the stick is considerable better than that of a yoke. I also like the feel of it better.
I've seen an interview on Discovery Channel with a very senior Lufthansa pilot who hated the new Airbus and the stick, however I think we should move forward in this world, not backward. The goal of today's designers is to design an aircraft that's safe and ergonomic. As a pilot I have to say one thing... let's not forget that 87% of all accidents are due to pilot error, so the argument of "I get voted out by a computer" doesn't have much weight on it. That's just the ego speaking.
True, there have been instances in which the "autopilot" had the final answer, but in the end, it's the pilots that are to blame for not being familiar with their automated jets. I had an entire class of Aircraft Automation, where we've studied lots of cases and accidents that were due to the crews` lack of knowledge and familiarity.
I think what we need is to develop very advanced system and train pilots on how to use them properly. Once we achieve that you’ll see an even greater reduction in aviation accidents. Let’s not forget that percentage wise, we’re probably at the lowest we’ve ever been when we comes to accidents and incidents and a lot of it can be credited to technology.
