A Passenger Flies Aircraft In Absence Of Its Pilot


Ever heard of a tale where a boarding passenger was put in charge at the last second to fly the plane? Well, that’s precisely what happened to Dad Michael Bradley.

Bradley was heading to Spain on a family holiday getaway. He, along with his son and wife, were waiting to board the flight to Alicante when he heard the providers announcing that there’d be a 2-hour delay for the aircraft to take off. On probing, he discovered the delay happened because the aviator had gone missing. Bradley terribly desired to go on holidays and could not assume the likelihood of getting cancelled. He just required some friendly wheedling from his spouse to finally elect to take control of the flight. The fellow who was himself an Easyjet pilot dialed up the authorities and stated, “I have got my ID with me and I’d very much like to go on holiday and if you need a favor I’m standing here ready to go.” The authorities rang him after 38 seconds to bestow him the permit. Most likely, for the first time in aviation history, there was a pilot flying an airplane in street clothes!

“It could only happen to me!!” posted one user on Facebook. Get to the airport and our flight is delayed a couple of hours… then I happened to look at the original time and it changed to gate closing!! Had to leg it across the airport to get on the flight. Get to boarding and asked the guy at the desk what’s going on he said ‘ oh your pilot’s gone missing but a guy that’s going on your flight is going to fly the plane’ REALLY CASUALLY!!! Luckily the guy was actually a pilot!! Probably would have been cancelled if it wasn’t for him! Legend.” Since Dad Michael was well rested due to having four days off previously, he was permitted to navigate the aircraft, maintaining all the safety measures and regulations.
