    Excellent outcome for a pilot incapacitation event. We don't know whether the student has flown in small aircraft before; if not, even the more impressive.

    Just shows how easy this flying stuff really is. The only reason it takes so many students so long to solo is that they have a conscious CFI onboard.

    CFI = Conscious Flight Instructor?

    I've been informed that he actually obtained his CFI certificate way back in April.

    In any case, I hope his incapacitation is diagnosed, isn't serious, and that he has a speedy recovery.

    He should be grateful there was a student onboard who could save his life!

    LOL!!! And a since of humor to boot!

    TOWER: "Tango Foxtrot Romeo, You're doing really really well, you're doing an amazing job"
    STUDENT PILOT: "Yeah well, my flight instructor did say that I was the best student he's had".

    Heh; what a humble guy. Since the instructor got his flight instructor certificate in April, how many students has he had?

    Can’t he be the best even if he’s the first? :dunno:

    Of course that means he’s also the worst. :lol:

    The controller also did an excellent job.

    I was wondering how much percent of student pilots can do this? Handle this type of emergency. It was really a miracle for me.
