Re: [5.samadhi] what do if pilot becomes unconscious?

In reply to:
What would you do on board the plane if the pilot became unconscious and did not respond to attempts to revive? For instance if he/she were having a massive heart attack. Lets say for sake of the situation that nobody knows how to fly a plane on board (that would change the situation entirely if somebody had their PL).

Is the pilot wearing an emergency bailout rig? If so, drag him out the door with you and pull his ripcord for him. Screw the airplane.

If you can keep the plane flying level, perhaps you can give him some time and see if he will regain consciousness long enough to land.

If he doesn't have a rig and stays unconscious, he's screwed - bail out and save yourself.

If someone wants to try and land the plane without having any pilot training, let 'em. It's their own life they're gambling with, to try and save another.
