Man With No Flying Experience Had To Take Control After Pilot Passed Out

May 12, 2022

Last week we had a story about a flight coming from the UK to New York had to turn around because one of the pilots told the staff that he wasn’t qualified to fly the plane.

I came across another story where another person wasn’t qualified to fly a plane but had no choice to take control after the pilot passed out.
The man called in to dispatchers explaining the situation with the pilot and told the dispatcher he had no experience with flying a plane.
Luckily the dispatcher was able to walk the man through safely to land the plane at a Tampa airport.
