Pilot Dies and Passenger Lands King Air


This was an amazing flight assist from a few years ago that made national headlines.  The pilot of a King Air aircraft died while in a climb out in Florida.  The passenger took over the controls as his wife and kid were on board as well.  This is one of the most cool, calm, and collected people you will ever witness in a situation like this.  The passenger hailed out to ATC, and Miami Center as well as numerous other facilities made an awesome effort to get the pilot safe on the ground while teaching the passenger how to fly a King Air at the same time.  Take some time to listen to this amazing audio!

This next portion of the audio has Fort Meyers approach handling the aircraft in an effort to get the passenger to land.
