Yep, this is pretty accurate. Goes to show how awful the in-game tutorials are. Atleast we've got Scott Manley.
They spent all that time only for the pilot to evacuate and plummet to his death.
This is the part I discovered that Kerbal Space Program needs you to tutorialise yourself with the handbooklet thingy before playing.
