How YOU can land a passenger aircraft! 12 steps

Mentour Pilot

    Cool aviation stuff! 👉🏻
    What if a Passenger was the ONLY one left to land the plane? Could a passenger theoretically do it, without ANY previous knowledge or training?
    In todays Special video, I will go through the required steps that will have to be taken in the cockpit in order to set the aircraft up for a safe auto-land. There will be around 20 different individual steps that needs to be taken and none of them can be omitted or done in the wrong order. This all depends on the passenger getting into contact with Air Traffic Control and being reasonably close to a suitable runway.

      *_Cool- piece o' Cake._*

    2. ʞɔᴉᗭǝlpooN

      Just connect an Xbox controller and you will be fine /s

    3. Jaroslav Vrzal

      Why do you suggest the right seat. I´ve been used to fly the airplane from the left seat so, I would be feeling more comfortable

    4. Kevin E

      This was the perfect video I’ve been looking for. I don’t wanna learn how to fly. I just want to know how to land Lol. 👍🏾👍🏾

    5. hector vargas

      When the emergency crew reach the cockpit they will need masks because it will be an awful smell from me shitting on myself!

    6. KabbalahSherry

      Wait, so you're telling me, that the most important 1st step, is to know HOW to get access to Air Traffic Control using old school radio frequencies, etc... when I can barely get WiFi to work most of the time?! On the ground?! 🤦🏻‍♀️😩 We're DEAD in that case...

    7. Julius

      The best tutorial you hopfully never need

    8. T Kandy

      Brilliant video, well done. Now we need to watch a video of what to do if you have to emergency land somewhere that is not a runway, so you cannot use auto pilot.

    9. DCussen

      If I’m in the scenario, I will forget everything I’ve seen in this video. However, I will download it and do a quick refresh and we will be fine.

    10. Raymond Meyers

      Anybody with half a brain and the ability to follow instructions could land a commercial aircraft with the latest avionics.

    11. N.S.A.

      Me: ”Guess the rapture didn’t take me. Or was it Thanos?”

    12. Sai Praveen

      I don’t think that this will never happen in any of the passengers career

    13. Juan Yepez

      Nowadays with that Technology on board. It’s a yes

    14. Ilgar Majidov

      That`s great lesson. For more safety, is better to connect remote pilot with full access. For example the computer measures both pilots health condition. If something wrong, system sends request to connect pilot on the ground to safety land the aircraft.

    15. Milan Djuricic

      Stewardess: We lost both pilots! Can anyone please land the plane? Passenger: Inshallah, I will land it! Allah ak... Stewardess: Anyone else? ... Passenger: But I am a trained pilot, I can land. ... ... Stewardess: So.... No-one?

    16. jimbom02

      What a champ awesome video hats off to you mentour

    17. Gregory Kosins

      No, but I stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night! (USA cultural reference).

    18. Jonathan Ulery

      I would rather take my chances landing than taking off ...take off is the hardest part of flight ....

    19. Darwin Risdon

      Piece of cake! Hardly any details to remember; ...where do I order my pilot's license from? 😐

    20. rohit nautiyal

      I will probably just KGup on how to land 737-800.

    21. Žiga Tretjak

      Easy peasy unless you have to do it

    22. Yafuker Sheldon

      My luck, I'd swallow a goose. Or is there a button for that?

    23. Graham j.

      Why do they get paid so much they do f all

    24. MeK-DirT

      1 - save this video in favorite 2 - make sure that the plane has wi-fi

    25. Ihana Kaunotar

      Omg this radio is too much 😅😅😅

    26. John Sun

      Why the engine thrust level never change when speed is change to slower? I assume you would need less power to slow down.

    27. John Sun

      Now I can be a hero 1 day.

    28. Trace Stevens

      This was a great experience landing a plane! Terrific!

    29. Stenzolid

      Hur fungerar autolanding i extrem sidvind? Kan systemt avbryta landningen själv och göra ett nytt försök eller vad händer?

    30. Brian Lopez

      piece of piss, dunno why these pilots get paid so much !

    31. dan ionel

      So basically you can fly the plane with 3 buttons but the radio has like a million buttons?

    32. Edward Wood

      Wow amazing good info

    33. A n j

      How come he didn't reverse the engine to assist the braking

      1. Speedbird


    34. 10 ON 10 - Travel & Entertainment - हिन्दी

      I'll prefer to push the *'Land at nearest airport'* button... 😎

      1. CraftingCat 99

        Turbo Prop Flight simulator?😁

    35. Daniel Goodman

      This is a cool video even if the scenario is unlikely. I enjoyed it.

    36. bill haar

      I met a retired commercial pilot at a party. I asked him the possibility of a passenger to land a plane like in the movies. He thought for a second asked, you mean someone with no flying experience at all. None at all. He paused and said “ Not in one piece “

    37. Jeffery Stocker


    38. anothername

      Holy shit! This is the most intense video I’ve seen in a long time. Great stuff as usual, Mentour!

    39. Nim Sandhu

      this is a brilliant video, hopefully there is some way to allow others to see it. Most people who watch your videos are probably already involved in the industry or are sim pilots, thinking that they can already land a plane because they have a pmdg flight sim addon on their PC...

    40. JNorene Platt

      I am furiously writing these 12 steps down on a 3x5 inch index card to keep in my carry on case forever.

    41. Monica Enriquez

      The BEST part of this video is the hilarious comments! I haven’t laugh this hard in years!

    42. Jesus

      Thank you so much for this video! I landed my first commercial flight!

    43. A G

      Are we to trust instructions from someone who clearly can't count? Which of the 35,568,825,403,370.99 steps in the video are the 12 referenced in the title....

    44. Chris Hetherington

      If you become type rated on the aircraft you are a passenger on, then yes. You can. Encapsotated.

    45. mrmichael20

      0:01 Plane is banking to the left, stop recording...

    46. CJdoubleM

      Pretty smart planes now days

    47. Stephen

      I want a big Red button that auto select's the emergency frequency put in every plane NOW ! Thank you. 😕

    48. FEARoperative

      Question. If I don't know my callsign but know the flight number, will it work?

    49. Jan Stor

      So if this happens the plane is doomed because the average Joe cannot even start following this... Anyway, what about dumping the fuel is that necessary?

      1. Speedbird

        No fuel dumping system on the 737NG

    50. Marcello Bacchetta

      Yes of course, I’m an Airline Technician 👏👏👏

    51. Christopher R J Kane

      Wow that was really awesome 😎...! Do most pilots do a manual land or automatic lands...?

    52. Chanju Banda

      Answer is no

    53. Billy G.

      I thought for 30 minutes that I was the Pilot and that I did land that aircraft.

    54. SMK

      I've often fantasized about landing a plane as a passenger and becoming a hero. After watching the video I got disappointed. The Autopilot will get most of the credit.

    55. Creative & Colourful

      Well I am only confuse with Altitude and turning the rest I can do I am fine with throttle Flaps ATC, Land Gear, Radio transmission, Auto pilot and ILS.

    56. Marc Van Gastel

      Haha, so funny, so many steps. Just step one, change your communication frequency, is already pretty challenging. And don't forget to adjust your seat and put on your seatbelt before you crash.

    57. Mur Mur

      Awesome! This is good to know, as more hijackings are possible as long as staff is getting out of the cockpit. LOL

    58. Brett Nine

      There should be a single emergency button to connect the radio, in an emergency situation, without having to perform manual resets.

    59. Gen-Z TechExpert

      Are these simulations? Because that would be bad if it was a real plane flying

      1. Speedbird

        Of course😉

    60. Sania Ungarova

      Perhaps, it won't happen with me, but I'll save this video

    61. Ilian Karasimirov

      Well, I will keep this video on my phone, just in case

    62. Scuba Pasta

      _Co-pilot: _*_Am I a joke to you?_*

    63. Eric Kona Peper

      It’s kinda funny I was just watching a video about adjusting the seat to line up with the sights and I was thinking if I was ever going to need to land an Aircraft it’s probably something to do about 1,327 steps into it! 😂❤️✌🏼🇺🇸

    64. Scuba Pasta

      *_Hey FBI, I'm just watching this because I'm... Uhh... My grandpa, he's a pilot, he want me to learn something new..._*

      1. Scuba Pasta

        *_Same thing to you, Aviation Service._*

    65. Sahbi BG

      Google it ! Oh snap no internet

    66. Bebot Epuknot

      Just playing in a simulator

    67. john johnson

      Does this count as my 737 type rating? Asking for a friend...

    68. blazn469

      Fantastic, brings back a few memories in days gone by. Thank You for sharing this.

    69. MrLiftHog

      Love the way you say Owwto land instead of Auto (Orrto) land. 😁

    70. pierre jean

      now please a landing tutorial if LSI is off on the airport

    71. Brian Fearn

      A parachute in your hand luggage 🧳 would come in handy.

    72. Paul Iverson

      The correct squak code in this situation would be 7 *5* 00.

    73. pierre jean

      The real question would be : if the pilots are gone for some reason, is there always any other member in the plane , trained for landing (mandatory )

    74. Rahz Al-Ghul

      Imagine someone is watching this as the plane is actually going down and they KGupd how to do it

    75. Gabriel Ballesteros

      Im confused with what the Pilot and Co pilot can control

    76. Gabriel Ballesteros

      Im confused with what the Pilot and Co pilot can control

    77. Mark Lawrence

      What a fantastic video. Flight Sim pilots worldwide will be following your every word. Please can I have a go in your real simulator :) Thanks Mentour Pilot great job.

    78. E L.

      Step 1 put on clean underwear

    79. Julian Rivera

      Did he say 20 steps? Cause I counted 100 plus😂

    80. Jayleen Hernandez

      Nah, I would just use slew mode 😂

    81. Nicholas Littlejohn

      Amazing work, adds a lot of safety and education for us all 👏🏽

    82. Greg Herbert

      You forgot to list the first step - changing my shorts after entering an empty cockpit!

      1. Zachary Wiggins

        Would have to be free ballin because my change of shorts would be in cargo lol

    83. Dekoven1949


    84. Mohamed Hameedi

      👍 good work 👍

    85. 18661873

      The less passengers know about the cockpit, the better.

    86. babarsony

      Even if it happens. You can’t access to the cockpit. Look what happens in germanwings plane.

      1. Speedbird


    87. Fredobel51

      I was glued to the screen while trying to take all this in. Now, I'm panicking lest I forget!

    88. Gealhar Tipones

      😍😍😍😍Love et...

    89. rana ahmad

      Its amazing and truly flawless and off course life saving guide to land airplane most safely...above all person giving instruction providing remarkably mesmerising instructions....

    90. edwardschlosser1

      I was doing a surgical procedure one day when my boss walks in just as I nick an artery, and blood is spraying everywhere. As I'm trying to get the bleeding under control my boss smiles, and says, "Don't worry. All bleeding stops eventually." Well, all planes comes down eventually too.

    91. Paul W

      Who knew you could do that! Just my luck, the FCC would fine me for using the radio without a license.

      1. Speedbird

        Dont think the Flight Contol Computer issues fines..🤭😉

    92. Jarno

      i guess i would do fine then. I already knew how to operate the radio.

    93. D2F TrashCan

      Anyone else on a plane atm?

    94. tristian o'brien

      i didnt touch the yoke, i had a vegetarian dish. how do you manage watching the end of the in flight movie while doing this?

    95. PowerGI

      Put radio to I/C: Mayday Mayday both pilots are dead, I'm a passenger and I have no idea what I'm doing. Please assist. I don't wanna die.

    96. Tommy Nyberg

      Leave it to me, I got this!

    97. V3ryan

      In case of rapture...

    100. R K Gupta

      Being an ex pilot I find it very instructive and very well put. I really loved the video.
