The “Pinch Hitter” course – an emergency training for fellow passengers

The training “Pinch Hitter” aims to convey the theoretical and practical knowledge of flying to fellow passengers without pilot-training and in an emergency to put them into position – in case of pilot incapacitation – to take over the control of an aircraft and to land it at the nearest airfield or onto an open field. Furthermore it is even more fun to fly along with a few basic skills of flying because you actively participate in flying and you also may lend a hand to the pilot from time to time.

Possible Participants:

Fellow passengers, wives / husbands, girlfriends, friends
