wikiHow – How To Land An Airplane In An Emergency

How to Land an Airplane in an Emergency (Image courtesy wikiHow)
By Andrew Liszewski

I’ve often wondered if I’d be able to land an airplane should the need ever arise. I mean back in the day I spent a lot of time playing MS Flight Simulator, what more training could I possibly need right? Well reading through this wikiHow article entitled “How to Land an Airplane in an Emergency” does make me second-guess my actual knowledge of the whole procedure. While the wiki is a bit vague at times, there’s still some pretty good information there, at least enough to keep you in the air until you get in touch with air traffic control. And it doesn’t hurt to bookmark the site on your laptop or phone, just in case you ever happen to need to reference it again.

    I'm thinking everything is a joke today but if i were going to take this seriously I'd think that stewardesses (yea, I said it Mr. PC) are probably given emergency landing training. It wouldn't surprise me if at least one trained WOMAN is on every flight.

    There was a great Mythbusters on this very topic. Apparently it is quite possible to talk an untrained individual through landing a plane. Granted, it was simulated, but on a true military simulator.
