Why Airplanes Make Hard Landings on Purpose
Date: 2020-02-18 11:00:03
Billions of people board a plane each year. Most passengers are completely unaware of a few things every pilot knows. Like if you should really panic when the plane starts rocking, the landing isn’t exactly as smooth as butter, or everyone in the cockpit fell asleep!
Btw, that last one isn’t a joke. Pilots sleep on the job! Imagine your cab driver falling asleep at the wheel! Good thing planes aren’t taxies because pilots do it all the time. Of course, it’s not that unusual for a pilot to wake up from their nap and realize that their co-pilot nodded off as well! This is less okay when it comes to regulations but still isn’t as dangerous as it sounds.

– Every airport has a limited number of planes that can land or take off each hour. It’s usually around 60 landings or takeoffs per runway.
– The pilots don’t always know how long repairs are going to take. When asked, they will usually give an amount of time that’s longer than they think it’ll take.
– Instead of saying “engine failure” or “stopped working,” pilots will hide it with euphemisms like “improper functionality.”
– Even severe turbulence isn’t going to knock your plane out of the sky, but it can still throw you from your seat.
– The material in a plane’s fuselage is designed to direct electricity away.
– Harder landings allow planes to stop quickly without the pilots needing to slam on the breaks or risk overshooting the terminal.
– Even if no one in your row is coughing or sneezing, you might not be in the clear.
– Any pilot will tell you that early morning flights are your best bet if you want to avoid heavy turbulence.
– The pilot doesn’t eat the same things as their passengers, but this is more of a safety precaution than a perk of the job.
– The pilot and co-pilot are both equally responsible for the safety of the flight, and they’re both equally equipped to handle any situation that might crop up.
– Perspective commercial pilots first need to earn a bachelor’s degree then choose a flight school. You can end up spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on training and certification.
