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.

mayday mayday mayday, I am on the runway, the aircraft goes too much to the right, do I push the right foot pedal or the left foot pedal?

Remembering Helios, a pilot's oxygen mask seems like the best first step. You might be able to get the aircraft down quickly enough to spare the lives of everyone else on board, including the pilots. Then you just let them take over when the come to again. Otherwise, excellent video. Maybe I can fly the 737 in the flight sim now.

Ok...... so...... say it's NOT a 737-800?? What then?? Say it's a -300 series or god forbid a -200 series??? You remember those right?? The ones with the good old JT8-D engines?? Steam gague instruments..... NO AUTOLAND!!! Basic autopilot flight director but come on...... not everybody gets to fly on the latest greatest equipment!!! In fact my bet is if we were in a -800, the forward cabin attendant would be the one to get on the radio and follow the basic landing checklist setting up the autopilot, autoapproach, and autoland computers...... I'll go even further and say that unless there's been some major structural damage, that flight attendant would most likely just sit there monitoring instruments making slight corrections and take the plane to its original destination rather than attempt a landing at the closest airport!!! That way the airlines doesn't have to pay for passenger accommodations etc to get them to their original destination!!! The modern glass cockpit is an AMAZING THING!!! But there's no real stick and rudder flying involved in normal flight category!!! Only very rarely does the cockpit attendant need to actually FLY THE PLANE!!! Come on!!! What fun is that??? Hell ANYBODY with flite sim 5 or better can taxi, take off, fly, and land anything including the 37, 47, and the CONCORDE!!! Talk about a handful..... fly that damn Concorde by yourself single pilot!!! I'm a pretty great pilot IRL and I have yet to land that damn thing successfully!!! Either I'm too fast and can't stop or i get too slow and stall the fker too high to land but too low to recover!!! There's a reason that one has TWO sets of controls!!!! I can fly rings around the Concorde with the SR-71!!! IT WAS DESIGNED FOR SINGLE PILOT FLIGHT!!! How about another video with a much more realistic situation?? Like the model that most air carriers are flying!!! THEN talk one of us down just like that stewardess in that movie Airport '77 or '78...... where they get the company's chief flight instructor to talk down the stewardess that is the captain's girlyfriend....... and she does it just fine!!! Hell I'm an actual pilot ppsel⁸⁸ and I'm sure I could do it!!!

These days, cockpits are locked, and nearly impossible to break into. On the outside chance the cockpit door is unlocked, I doubt there would be anyone aboard the aircraft that could follow this rather complex set of instructions. The only exception being someone who is an experienced private pilot.

It takes pilots intensive training to learn this. A frightened passenger will not remember all of this. He/she would need specific directions and another person helping to MAYBE get it.

“Important not to panic at this stage”... That suggests there’s a stage still to come at which we *should* panic. Surely it’s important not to panic at *any* stage.

Someone here knows how different cabins in different models are? Becasue clearly there are significant changes, but mainly, do Airbus and Boeing try to make them the most similar possible? (When the aircraft have similar capabilities). And what model would this be? I can see it has 2 motors so its not the worst situation one can be in hahaha.
Speedbird 5 күн мурун
No cabin in a flight simulator😉 This is the cockpit of a Boeing 737NG..most likely a -800, but I cant see the temperature control panel on the P-5 panel so its hard to tell🤷🏻‍♂️ An Airbus cockpit looks completely different🤭 But the simulators are exactly like the aircraft type cockpit.

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.

@Speedbird Good catch, I was still busy trying to figure out all the other procedures that are too complicated in an emergency for a novice. My bad. There should be ONE emergency button, even for pilots that are in a bad way, sick, etc, to make all those things happen at once. It is anything but hard to create. They make this like a typewriter, too hard to make sense, and that is on purpose.

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.
