Cool aviation stuff! 👉🏻 www.amazon.com/shop/mentourpilot
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.

Whatvis the purpose of autopilot if everything is manual.. There should be one emergency button which select all the frequencies , ils, speed, heigh automatically according the nearest airport
Salah پیش روز
In the first step how the passenger will know which frequency number to enter ?!
strange beautiful music
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.

What if the pilots had no time to unlock the cockpit door....? no options for the ONLY one left. Ding-dong: "is there a locksmith on board?"

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.

Another great video, really interesting. "If you're a nervous flyer, download these instructions" - like one of those who burst into tears on takeoff? 🤣🤣 Yes that would be good therapy for them, I can see the logic there.

I imagine “mayday mayday, passenger flying the aircraft” would be officially classified as a Code Brown situation. I was impressed at the Mythbusters episode where, if I remember right, the ATC was able to talk them down to a reasonably decent landing.

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 پیش 4 روز
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.

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.

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.

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.
