APG 140 – Meet-ups, Flight Control Problems, Emergencies
Play

Would you hesitate to declare an emergency? We discuss an article about pilot reluctance to declare an emergency when it is the appropriate thing to do.

A sick passenger on a flight from Dallas/Fort Worth to Chicago was told by flight attendants worried about Ebola that she would have to stay in the lavatory for the duration of the flight, according to a passenger witness. Is this a case of hysteria and overreaction, or prudent action?

Here’s an interesting one: A Skywest CRJ2 experienced flight control problems while on approach to Chicago’s O’Haire International last week. They safely landed the jet at DuPage Airport southwest of KORD.
