Our readers can imagine that there’s probably nothing scarier than piloting a plane and suddenly experiencing engine problems. That is exactly what happened to a student pilot this past weekend, leading to a crash-landing into the Long Island Sound in New York.
Even those individuals who work in the aviation industry and could be considered experts in the field are not immune to airplane accidents. When something goes wrong while an airplane is in the air, there is only so much a pilot can do no matter how much experience he or she has. If the problem turns out to be mechanical, the pilot may be out of luck in terms of landing it safely.
Even the best pilots in the country are not immune to the possibility of an airplane crash. Recently, a pilot who had thousands of hour of flight time under his belt died in an airplane accident.
