Getter is not working?

So i went back to this quiz that i for got to finish from a whyle back and for some reason when i go to update the text view on question two i use the get method but it seems like im missing something and i cant figure out what.

LandingActivity.java
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.Button;
import android.widget.EditText;

public class LandingActivity extends Activity {

    public Button mThrustButton;
    public TextView mTypeLabel;
    public EditText mPassengersField;

    public Spaceship mSpaceship;

    @Override
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

      mSpaceship = new Spaceship("FIREFLY");

        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_landing);

        mThrustButton = (Button)findViewById(R.id.thrustButton);

        mTypeLabel = (TextView)findViewById(R.id.mSpaceship.getType);

        mPassengersField = (EditText)findViewById(R.id.passengersEditText);

        // Add your code here!
    }
}
Spaceship.java
public class Spaceship {
    private String mType;
    private int mNumPassengers = 0;

    public String getType() {
      return mType;
    }

    public void setType(String type) {
      mType = type;
    }

    public int getNumPassengers() {
      return mNumPassengers;
    }

    public void setNumPassengers(int numPassengers) {
      mNumPassengers = numPassengers;
    }

    public Spaceship() {
      mType = "SHUTTLE";
    }

    public Spaceship(String type) {
      mType = type;
    }
}

        //Task One:
        mSpaceship = new Spaceship("FIREFLY");
        //Task Two:
        mTypeLabel.setText(mSpaceship.getType());
        //Task Three:
        mPassengersField.setText(mSpaceship.getNumPassengers() + "");
        // + "" so that you can convert it to a string.
