Cool aviation stuff! 👉🏻
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.

  • 1 - save this video in favorite 2 - make sure that the plane has wi-fi

  • Why the engine thrust level never change when speed is change to slower? I assume you would need less power to slow down.

  • This was a great experience landing a plane! Terrific!

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

    StenzolidStenzolid12 soat oldin
  • piece of piss, dunno why these pilots get paid so much !

    Brian LopezBrian Lopez14 soat oldin
  • So basically you can fly the plane with 3 buttons but the radio has like a million buttons?

  • This is a cool video even if the scenario is unlikely. I enjoyed it.

  • 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 “

  • Holy shit! This is the most intense video I’ve seen in a long time. Great stuff as usual, Mentour!

    anothernameanothernameKun oldin
  • 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...

  • Are we to trust instructions from someone who clearly can't count? Which of the 35,568,825,403,370.99 steps in the video are the 12 referenced in the title....

  • If you become type rated on the aircraft you are a passenger on, then yes. You can. Encapsotated.

  • Question. If I don't know my callsign but know the flight number, will it work?

    FEARoperativeFEARoperativeKun oldin
  • So if this happens the plane is doomed because the average Joe cannot even start following this... Anyway, what about dumping the fuel is that necessary?

    Jan StorJan StorKun oldin
    • No fuel dumping system on the 737NG

  • I thought for 30 minutes that I was the Pilot and that I did land that aircraft.

  • 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.

  • Well I am only confuse with Altitude and turning the rest I can do I am fine with throttle Flaps ATC, Land Gear, Radio transmission, Auto pilot and ILS.

  • 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.

    Marc Van GastelMarc Van Gastel2 kun oldin
  • Awesome! This is good to know, as more hijackings are possible as long as staff is getting out of the cockpit. LOL

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

  • It’s kinda funny I was just watching a video about adjusting the seat to line up with the sights and I was thinking if I was ever going to need to land an Aircraft it’s probably something to do about 1,327 steps into it! 😂❤️✌🏼🇺🇸

  • The real question would be : if the pilots are gone for some reason, is there always any other member in the plane , trained for landing (mandatory )

  • 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?
