Jump Seat Experience in ATR 72-500 Plane

This is my first time to have the opportunity to sit on jump seat in a plane. Jump seat is an auxiliary crew station, is a seat in an aircraft cockpit for individuals not operating the aircraft. From there you can see how pilots operates an plane and heard their conversation over to the control tower. The best part to see is during the landing session when you can see the plane approaching the landing lane and pilots do the necessary preparation to land.
