    fly by the seat of one's pants

    Hi

    A general is talking on the phone with a police officer.

    The general says: I'm not exactly on board with how you're handling this.

    The officer says: Flying by the seat of my pants, sir. Doing the best I can, what with all the prohibitions on what I can look at or the roads I can go down.

    Does it mean: I'm doing this on a hunch?
