Flight attendant helps pilot land plane
June 15, 2010

A flight attendant who has a pilot's license replaced an ill first officer
during a landing at O'Hare International Airport, officials said today.

The co-pilot of an American Airlines plane that departed San Francisco on
Monday fell sick en route to Chicago, said American spokeswoman Mary
Frances Fagan.

"He was unable to continue his duties and he moved to the passenger cabin,"
Fagan said, adding that the flight's captain checked to see whether any
off-duty airline pilots were on board the flight.

A female flight attendant advised the captain that she is a commercial
pilot and the captain asked her to sit in the right-hand seat in the
cockpit, Fagan said.

"The flight attendant became the first officer on landing," she said. "The
cockpit crew did an outstanding job handling the situation."

The flight attendant helped the captain by reading off check list of
procedures and she handled other tasks, in addition to providing a second
set of eyes in the cockpit, Fagan said.

The plane, a Boeing 767 with 225 passengers and seven crew members on
board, arrived at O'Hare at 4:24 p.m. Monday. The landing was normal,
officials said.

The condition of the ill first officer was not serious, officials said. He
was met on the ground at O'Hare by paramedics and transported to a local
hospital, where he was treated and released.

The first officer was based in Chicago. He was resting on Tuesday,
officials said.

The captain did, however, complain that she was slow to freshen his
coffee...

Is it hard to land when sitting in the captain's lap? Just kidding, I
hope the attendant gets a chance to fly for American as a pilot.

I hope the airlines start giving free lessons to their flight attendants.

Given this set of circumstances, what types of assistance would a
commercial-rated pilot be able to offer assuming she is not rated on
this type aircraft? I would guess-communications with ATC primarily.
What else?

hope the attendant gets a chance to fly for American as a pilot.


It's a very big step from being licensed as a commercial pilot
and being licensed with an ATR (airline transport rating).

The other consideration is that she probably has seniority as a flight
attendant, and the job security which goes with it. To move to the
flight cabin would put her at the bottom of the totem pole.
