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.

  • I was doing a surgical procedure one day when my boss walks in just as I nick an artery, and blood is spraying everywhere. As I'm trying to get the bleeding under control my boss smiles, and says, "Don't worry. All bleeding stops eventually." Well, all planes comes down eventually too.

  • There should be ONE button (bright red saying 'PUSH IN EMERGENCY') to push that automatically puts the radio into emergency mode on every plane.....doesn't that make more sense than to have to remember where the radio is located and what frequency to use BEFORE someone can contact someone to help them?

  • I read/saw somewhere that in the entire history of commercial aviation there has _never_ been a case of the entire flight crew being unable to land the place and a passenger forced to do it (other than perhaps terrorist situations). Certainly in over a hundred years there have been cases where the pilot or copilot was incapacitated -- he had a heart attack, he "had the fish", etc. -- but the other flight crew member was always able to safely land the aircraft. My father was a flight engineer for several airlines -- Emery, MGM Grand, a few others. Despite being blind in one eye I'm sure he would have been able to land a plane safely. The next step in automation should be a big, well labeled button in the cockpit called "Land Plane". If Falcon 9 boosters can automatically land intact then certainly we can make a plane do it too.

    GangfireGangfire2 ngày trước
    • @Gangfire Oh, the general/commercial distinction here is what I missed. It has most likely never happened with commercial flights indeed. The wikipedia article "Talk-down aircraft landing" lists several generall aviation cases.

      amjanamjan2 ngày trước
    • @amjan There have been several instances of not-fully-qualified pilots safely landing planes (i.e. no/superficial injuries), but in every single case it was general aviation, not a _commercial_ flight. I did a little additional research and could not find a VIworld video where a non-flight-crew person on a commercial flight successfully landed the plane. One looked promising, a 15-year old who (as claimed) successfully landed a 737-800, but sadly it was click bait -- it was a _simulator_ landing. There's another case of a USAF B-1 pilot who was a passenger on the flight and assisted the First Officer, but he did not land the aircraft. But if there is a success video of a passenger landing a commercial flight I'd certainly like to see it, I love success stories like this. Please link the video here.

  • It's a good thing he put the disclaimers at the beginning of this video, because if I were ever on a plane where both the pilots were incapacitated and I was the most qualified person of the hundred or so other people on the plane because I watched a VIworld video, and we weren't able to resuscitate either pilot, and I didn't adjust my seat correctly and we all died in a firey crash.... I'd be sure to file a lawsuit!!

  • People love to mock simmers and it is absolutely true they are not pilots and would have a very small chance of succeeding. But that said, if you've got no other option, I'd rather a simmer take a shot at it than someone who has never seen the inside of a cockpit. I know where the radios are and how to operate them. I know what guard frequency is. I know how to set the transponder. I know where the auto brakes are and how to manipulate the autopilot. I know how to read the PFD. I know where the flaps, speed brake and gear are the general concept of how and when they should be used. I could probably manage to tune a VOR and fly to it using auto pilot. I've flown the full motion sims at Delta and FedEx and managed to get it down mostly in one piece most of the time. I'd need a lot of help from the ground for sure. Again, I am in no way saying I'm a pilot. My chances would be extremely small. Any bad weather at all and the chances would go from extremely small to infintesimal. But if I ever found myself in this fantasy scenario, I'd rather a simmer give it a shot and increase my odds a minuscule amount rather than a random person with zero experience of any kind or just waiting until we ran out of fuel. I would think the incapacitated pilots would have the same opinion.

    • Most likely yes. It’s better to communicate with someone who recognizes the cockpit than someone who has no clue.

  • If the computer said “2500” but you have the altitude set at 3000 then why is that normal?

    James MooreJames Moore4 ngày trước
    • The callout comes from the radio altimeter which shows you height over underlying terrain. The altitude indicator shows altitude over sea-level

  • Wotbdya do during lockers? Oh *just learnt how to land a Boeing at Stansted*

    john johnjohn john5 ngày trước
  • I think this basically comes down to three factors: 1. Can you get the radio to work? If you can't you are screwed and will not be able to land. Even if by sheer miracle you can find a landing strip and can set the plane on it you will not be able to stop it. 2. Do you have plenty of fuel? You will need a lot of time for instruction from traffic control and a lot of time to set on final and probably also execute a go around at least once just to get the hang of it. 3. Is the aircraft ok? If the aircraft is damaged it may be giving contradictory information or may require ability to diagnose the problem in the cockpit or may require constant hard inputs just to keep it from crashing and certainly will require a lot of bandwidth which you don't have. Professional pilots get overwhelmed with alerts and spend a lot of training just to be able to coordinate flying the plane and deal with problems at the same time. If you are there alone with no experience you are screwed. I really can't imagine too many plausible scenarios when both pilots get incapacitated and you get to cockpit. Maybe terrorists killing pilots but then get overpowered by passengers? Maybe pilots poisoning themselves eating the same food before long flight?
