Hypoxia lesson
« on: May 29, 2011 »
For those of you not familiar with the physiology of hypoxia in flight, check out the link to the AvWeb story about helping an incapacitated pilot.  There is an mpeg of the conversation between thecontroller, the Cirrus pilot, his wife, and a Great Lakes commercial flight.  This is some scarey stuff.  Hats off to the controller and the Great Lakes pilot for helping these folks get down and land safely.

This is the stuff movies are made out of.  Great job by all including the coolheadedness of the wife.
