After the pilot becomes incapable, passenger lands the plane in Florida

On Tuesday, after the pilot of the plane his flight became incapacitated in the cockpit on Tuesday, a plane passenger contacted Florida air traffic control.

On Tuesday, after the pilot of the plane his flight became incapacitated in the cockpit on Tuesday, a plane passenger contacted Florida air traffic control.
Initially, it was reported that an unnamed passenger with no flight experience reported that the pilot had “gone incoherent” and had “no idea how to fly the aircraft.”
The passenger was one of two people aboard the single-engine Cessna 208.
Through the aid of an air traffic controller (who is also an aviation instructor), the passenger succeeded in landing the plane at Palm Beach International Airport in Florida.

In the audio obtained from air traffic control, the controller is heard asking about the position and the location of the plane.

“I have no idea,” the passenger answered calmly. “I see the coast of Florida in front of me and I have no idea.”

The air traffic controller then asks about the pilot’s position, and the passenger replies that he has passed out and is incoherent.

Robert Morgan was the controller who guided the plane to a safe landing, as reported by the local news network.

Though Morgan himself had never flown a Cessna 208 aeroplane before, he used the picture of the plane’s cockpit to guide the passenger to land the plane safely.

“I knew the plane flies like any other plane. I just had to keep him calm, point him to the runway and just tell him how to reduce the power so they can descend to land,” said the instructor.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is now investigating the situation.
