After a downhill bike ride gone wrong last night. Around midnight I was climbing up a mountain (to my Jeep) with my bike on my back.
While I was climbing I was thinking about the fact my headlight had an SOS function (I didn't consider using it). SOS functions of lights are great and all, but then I realized that as a pilot, myself, I am not sure how to report a person in distress on the surface.
As a climber and ROTC cadet, I am well versed in the hand signals, and various ways to flag down airplanes, but as a pilot, if I were to come across someone flashing SOS at night, or flagging me down with a mirror in the day, how would I report their location to get a search and rescue team dispatched?
