Cool aviation stuff! 👉🏻
What if a Passenger was the ONLY one left to land the plane? Could a passenger theoretically do it, without ANY previous knowledge or training?
In todays Special video, I will go through the required steps that will have to be taken in the cockpit in order to set the aircraft up for a safe auto-land. There will be around 20 different individual steps that needs to be taken and none of them can be omitted or done in the wrong order. This all depends on the passenger getting into contact with Air Traffic Control and being reasonably close to a suitable runway.

  • In 2021 please tell me why there is not a huge button clearly marked in the cockpit "no pilots press here" then the auto pilot completely takes over the entire flight and radio transmissions and landing of the plane. Go figure.

  • If the passenger is an airline pilot of a similar aircraft. Other than Including myself. Uh60 Blackhawk and single engine fixed wing aircraft. I would give it a shot though lol

  • 1. You have to do 5 things you will never remember to talk to help on frequency 121.5 2. He says you have to push a button to talk, but does not show the button. 3. I am six minutes into this video, realizing every plane is different, so all these panels and knobs may be in different locations. 4. They should make getting a hold of help easier. 5. Good luck.

  • Wait, so you're telling me, that the most important 1st step, is to know HOW to get access to Air Traffic Control using old school radio frequencies, etc... when I can barely get WiFi to work most of the time?! On the ground?! 🤦🏻‍♀️😩 We're DEAD in that case...

  • That`s great lesson. For more safety, is better to connect remote pilot with full access. For example the computer measures both pilots health condition. If something wrong, system sends request to connect pilot on the ground to safety land the aircraft.
