A Passenger with No Flying Experience Landed a Plane

After the pilot reportedly suffered a medical emergency, a passenger on board a single-engine plane was forced to land at Palm Beach International Airport on Tuesday.

The only people on board the 12-seat Cessna Caravan that took off from the Bahamas were the pilot and a passenger.

The passenger can be heard telling Air Traffic Control that he has “a serious situation” in the audio obtained . “My pilot has gone incoherent, I have no idea how to fly the airplane,” he explained.

In another audio clip, Air Traffic Control inquires about the passenger’s location.
“I have no idea,” said the passenger. “I see the coast of Florida in front of me and I have no idea.”
