Even airport officials are said to be shocked by the incident.
He was flying home to see his pregnant wife. The pilot of the passenger plane suddenly fell ill and lost consciousness. As it is a small aircraft for private use, there is no other pilot. Due to the small size of the aircraft, the number of passengers is very low. With this, the passenger had to take over the cockpit. The plane landed at Palm Beach Airport without any incident.
It was an emergency. My pilot lost consciousness and could not move. I do not know anything about flying a plane. But I took it. Proceeded in accordance with the instructions of the Air Traffic Control. The people there told us the position of the plane. ‘Where are you now?’ Asked the air traffic controller on duty at the time. He replied that he was now on the Florida coast and had no other choice. He instructed them to keep the wings level and fly over the shore. After that, the plane was located. The passenger told CNN.
