10 Life-Saving Tips For Crash Landings
Call For Help
Most airplanes come with a built in radio, so make use of it and call for help from the nearest radio tower or airport. If you are unable to locate a microphone, then make use of the pilot’s headset. A button labeled as Push to Talk will work to transmit a mayday message.
If you know you are going to crash, locate the transponder directly below the radio station in the cockpit. This will locate the plane on the radar, which sends out its location for emergency help. Set the transponder dials to 7700, which means “General Emergency.”
