Have it ever happened that the flight attendants asked the most wanted and feared question of all flight-simmers out there: "Can Anyone Fly A Plane?"

My question is for events when all the pilots was incapacitated, and someone who in not a qualified pilot landed the plane.

  • $\begingroup$ @CrossRoads How do you know that? It has actually happened. $\endgroup$ – Cloud Sep 20 '18 at 12:54
  • $\begingroup$ That's why I commented, vs answered. If there's a flight attendant, there's usually a first officer - guess who'd be flying then? $\endgroup$ – CrossRoads Sep 20 '18 at 13:00
  • $\begingroup$ It actually gets said as "any non-revenue pilots, please push your call button". If you heard it, you'd disregard it as technobabble, but it's a dogwhistle to pilots with any experience. $\endgroup$ – Harper - Reinstate Monica Sep 21 '18 at 4:35
