    I’ve bern trying to figure out how the skydiver is flying sideways at the same airspeed as the aircraft, or how the aircraft is in vertical freefall with the same Vterm as the skydiver. None of it makes sense, and then I remembered that Card88 likes to hit the likker extra hard sometimes, and it all came into focus.

    OK, you're losing me here: if the pilots have left the aircraft, how is there going to be a "bullet from the cockpit"?

    True, but doesn’t it all make more sense if we’ve been drinking? :)

    Why are you so curious? Could get yourself an interview asking questions like that.

    How would that get you through the locked cockpit door?

    I'm not asking because of curiosity. I'm asking because I suspect that he or she has overlooked the fact that cockpit doors are kept locked.

    The default door code is Admin. Doubt they bother to change it.

    In this thread's (silly) scenario where the pilots have left the aircraft, there would be no one left to fire it.

    True story... when making PA announcements i always say "cockpit" vs flightdeck. I do it just to say that word.

    So is the flight deck crew leaving the passengers to fend for themselves.

    I haven't read much of Parts 119 and 121, but I would be very surprised if there weren't something in there that would cover it. If not, then 91.13 would seem to apply.

    Most AFM's state in the limitations that one pilot must be seated at the controls at all times. I'm sure that covers it somehow.

    well 91.3b also applies then. I am PIC, I have control failure, I am deviating from all the rules, jumping out and opening my parachute

    Well that would certainly be a weasel thing to do! Also, I'm not sure that abandoning the passengers to their own devices would qualify as meeting the emergency.

    In any case, a control failure would probably render it moot as to whether a pilot passenger could get onto the flight deck.
