And have been doing so for a LONG time:

Air France Flight 296:

1994 Scotland RAF Chinook Crash:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ru4f57VMLeo
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H3BWVNuuLBo
"Nine months before the crash, a Ministry of Defence report suggested that
Full Authority Digital Engine Control (FADEC), the control system being used
to run the engines, was 'positively dangerous.' And a House of Commons
investigation found more than 486 anomalies in the software after examining
only 18 percent of the code."

AeroPerú Flight 603:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2o7YIXxgadA
"The cause of the problem was later found to be duct tape covering the 757’s
static ports, on the underside of the plane. The computer relied on this
supporting system for accurate information, and covering the ports resulted
in its data inputs coming in as gibberish."

Adam Air Flight 574:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YiTO42q1Zt4
Pilots can become so focused on computer problems that they ignore the
obvious.

Korean Air Flight 801:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yzuWk35mFNY
"An investigation into the crash found that there was a fault with the
Ground Proximity Warning System, which should have alerted the crew that
they were flying too low. On top of this, air traffic control’s radar had
been deliberately set to ignore planes below a certain altitude."

Korean Air Lines Flight 007:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DK_PS9QFPFw
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Korean...nes_Flight_007
https://aviation-safety.net/database...?id=19830901-0

Air France Flight 447:

Spanair Flight JK 5022:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dhYFSM4d8wY
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EruTu5O9LX8
Viruses cause a lot of computer crashes, but it’s rare for one to bring down
an entire aircraft. "A key reason for the pilots not correctly configuring
the aircraft was the failure of the Take-Off Warning System to alert them
that there was a problem."

Time for pilots to take remedial seat-of-the-pants flight training...
