Cool aviation stuff! 馃憠馃徎
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.

Im sorry, but this is a bit too much to expect from a passenger who has never piloted an aircraft. More realistically all that should be required is contacting air traffic control for instructions. No one will remember anything else.

you showed how to switch from IC to RT, but you didn't show the push to talk button or where it is
Speedbird Dzie艅 temu
Its not from IC to RT, its a toggle switch to IC or RT馃槈Meaning that it is a PPT button, but there is also a PTT button on the yoke.

Great video! Old aviation joke: a good landing is any one you can walk away from; a great landing is one where the aircraft can be used again.

Why use the right seat? If a passenger is flying the airplane, it's probably a passenger with private pilot's license. In that case, they will be more comfortable, and steer on the ground better, if they are in the left seat. If it's a small plane flight instructor, they will pick the seat they are most comfortable in anyway. This also lets the passenger/pilot work the autopilot and avionics with their right hand, which is more comfortable for most people.
Beverly Wilcox
Beverly Wilcox Dzie艅 temu
But wouldn't taxiing be further down on the priority list than ability to follow ATC instructions on setting up the avionics and autopilot in the air? When the autopilot clicks off on the ground, the speed will be down to the point where everyone will probably survive. (Don't get me wrong, as a non-current little plane CFI, I loved the opportunity to see what might have been if my eyesight hadn't been up to airline standards.)

@Mentour Pilot Thanks for responding - these are great videos and I've been hooked on them since I found them a few days ago.

Under no circumstances should a non trained person try and maneuver on the ground, I choose that seat partially for that reason.
rva1945 2 dni temu
If there is no other option...but let麓s keep in mind that only a well trained pilot knows how to cope with bad weather, technical problems, like engine fire or flame-out, loss of hydraulic pressure, electrical problems, etc. So in an ideal situation... well it could be possible. Add the person's mood and attitude about aviation.

You would need to switch over to the emergency frequency because otherwise, you will need to do several frequency changes throughout the flight.

Should have more described the radio comm. This is the most important, impossible to figured out for a inexperienced person. The last conscious/living passenger of flight Helios 522 (breathing in a oxygen bottle after all crew and passenger passed out, due to a undetected decompression) could not operate the radio, so he never had the chance to do anything, and the plane crashed after consuming all fuel

Sorry for nitpicking馃きIt wasnt a decompression, but lack of pressurization馃槈

Aren鈥檛 most flight attendants on major airlines taught how to engage auto land and get do these things so. You would really be one of last people on the plane because both pilots sometimes three for long hall and any where between 2 to 6 flight attendants. I feel like to loose that many people you would have to loose the cockpit and then there is nothing to fly.

On the next flight where a captain hassles me over drinking too much, open hatch, down and out he goes. Not needed, I'm a pilot now meself. Okay things will be a little hot once I pull the handbrake up and get the plane into neutral, I realize. A few people will like me less, but look. I didn't watch this for nothing. On a serious note. Brilliant video, Mentour Pilot, and thank you. You never know when this vital information may save hundreds of lives.

"Ladies and gentlemen, this is your new pilot speaking. I am currently watching a PLpost video on how to fly this particular plane but I'm confident in about 20 minutes that I will be able to guide this plane all the way to the scene of the crash. It appears we have 8,000 pounds of fuel left which should be enough to give everyone time to drink as much alcoholic beverages as possible. Please bring a few up for me. Thanks for flying Delta, or as we'll now call it, Omega."

I'm a militarily helicopter pilot and every time I fly commercial, I can't help but imagine what would happen if something happened in the cockpit that lead to the first officer and captain being incapacitated. I've always imagined that with a little instruction from the ATC controller and with the help of a trained flight attendant, we'd be fine.

Thanks for a very interesting and informative video Mentour. Would have liked to see the rudder guides and the brake in the footwell a bit more to make it clear which one not to press. I think the flight attendants should also be given a short course on these basic steps so they can assist whoever is left to fly the plane, or if they have to do it themselves, and have these important emergency steps available somewhere in the cockpit, especially up to the point of how to establish communication with air traffic control.

I dont think so. If you played 100 s of hours flight simulation with modern (!!!)planes. Plus you need to be 200% cold blooded and quick to learn. And time. If you have some hours to practice before landing. So, these 3 conditions in place...maybe (before video).
