Passenger With ‘No Idea’ How To Fly Lands Plane After Pilot’s Medical Emergency

Passenger Lands Plane After Pilot Suffers Medical Emergency A passenger who had ‘no idea how’ managed to successfully land an airplane after the pilot suffered a medical emergency. Officials at Palm Beach International Airport in Florida got a distress call from the passenger on Tuesday: “My pilot has gone incoherent. I have no idea how to fly the airplane.” Air traffic controller Robert Morgan managed to talk the man through the process as he safely landed the single-engine Cessna on the airport runway. Morgan rated the landing a ’10 out of 10′, adding “I felt like I was going to cry”. No word on the pilot’s condition, but one person was taken to a hospital after the landing.  The pilot and passenger were the only people aboard the plane. What would you do in that situation?
