Nothing about gently returning the "ship" to earth. Guess that is not as important as:

5. Sets brakes and accelerates engines to verify that oil, hydraulic fluid, fuel quantities and cabin pressure are at prescribed levels prior to starting engines.
But I am just a dumb pilot. I still haven't figured out how to accelerate the engines to verify oil, fluid and fuel prior to engine start.

How much you want to bet the HR Department has a guy that took some flying lessons 10 years ago?

You got to love the H.R. department! These are the same guys that think that all jets are called learjets. Go figure.

Actually, the landing is outsourced to cheap and illegal migrant workers.
