Dear MEL Topic Readers,

Could you land a plane in an emergency?

“A passenger with no flying experience landed a plane at a Florida airport after the pilot” posted in Vol.3688 on May 18. The passenger who took control of the plane had no piloting experience yet he landed the aircraft safely with the assistance of a flight instructor/air controller on the ground. The lucky passenger seemed to have a good sense of controlling a mechanical device. But beyond his natural sense and professional assistance, the aircraft was a small Cessna, which had been landed by a passenger in an emergency case a few times before the incident. But what about a larger airplane like a jet airliner that cruises at 35,000 feet above the ground? Nowadays, there are a variety of tutorials and simulation games on the Internet that seem to increase confidence, especially in men, in controlling an aircraft. However, when they try a professional flight simulator that is used to train pilots, the result won’t look as good as on the game machine. It’s not the confidence but the training that determines fate.

Enjoy reading the article and learning about what landing an aircraft could mean to non-pilots.
