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.

Hur fungerar autolanding i extrem sidvind? Kan systemt avbryta landningen själv och göra ett nytt försök eller vad händer?

I met a retired commercial pilot at a party. I asked him the possibility of a passenger to land a plane like in the movies. He thought for a second asked, you mean someone with no flying experience at all. None at all. He paused and said “ Not in one piece “

this is a brilliant video, hopefully there is some way to allow others to see it. Most people who watch your videos are probably already involved in the industry or are sim pilots, thinking that they can already land a plane because they have a pmdg flight sim addon on their PC...

I've often fantasized about landing a plane as a passenger and becoming a hero. After watching the video I got disappointed. The Autopilot will get most of the credit.

Haha, so funny, so many steps. Just step one, change your communication frequency, is already pretty challenging. And don't forget to adjust your seat and put on your seatbelt before you crash.

There should be a single emergency button to connect the radio, in an emergency situation, without having to perform manual resets.

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.
amjan 5 kun oldin
@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.
Gangfire 5 kun oldin
@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 UZblock 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.

There have been cases of a passanger landing a plane. You'll finds report on this on UZblock.
