Providing a solution to an abnormal situation

 

  1. If a hijacker threatens to shoot the passengers one by if you don’t open the cockpit door, what will you do? Why?
  2. If one of cockpit crew is incapacitated during a flight and one of your passengers is a qualified airline pilot and offers you assistance in controlling the plane, will you accept his offer?
  3. If you are the plane’s captain, what would you do if your first officer refuses to accept your command?
  4. Imagine that you are the pilot of an aircraft that is making a descent in preparation to land. What will you do if you hear radio communications but get no response from the controller when you call on the radio?
  5. What would you do if a passenger gets upset and starts disturbing other passengers?
  6. What would you do if after touching down on the runway, the visibility has reduced to zero and you can’t see the taxiway to exit?
  7. What would you do if an air traffic controller instructs you to execute a maneuver that is beyond the capability of your aircraft?
  8. What would you do if during a flight, an attendant informs you that some very suspicious passengers are communicating through sign language?
  9. What would you do if the other cockpit crew gets drunk and attempts to fly the aircraft?
  10. What would you do if while taking off, the controller tells you that smoke is coming out from the tail of your aircraft?
  11. What would you do if you are about to land and you suddenly see a flock of birds along your flight path?
  12. What would you do if you are already scheduled to depart but are still waiting for some passengers to board?
  13. What would you do if you encounter a weather condition that is worse than you had expected?
  14. What would you do if you find out midway through a flight that the navigational charts available in the cockpit are outdated and no longer applicable?
  15. What would you do if you find out that another pilot in your company is flying while under the influence of alcohol?
  16. What would you do if you found out that your co-pilot is unfriendly to passengers and harsh to flight attendants?
  17. What would you do if you learned that a shoulder-launched missile was fired at your aircraft while in flight?
  18. What would you do if you need to land immediately at an airport with poor visibility but the ILS is temporarily out of service?
  19. What would you do if you see one of your engines ingest a large bird?
  20. What would you do if you sense that your co-pilot is having a panic attack?
  21. What would you do if your airplane needs to land immediately but you are not familiar with the nearest airport, and you don’t have the appropriate approach chart?
  22. What would you do if your altimeter fails during approach?
  23. What would you do if your captain / first officer looks too tired to fly?
  24. What would you do if your co-pilot/captain becomes really sick during the flight?
  25. What would you do if, after deplaning, a flight attendant reports that a bag was left unattended in the cabin?
  26. What would you do if, after having been given takeoff clearance by the controller, you see another aircraft taxiing towards you along the runway?
  27. What would you do if, after takeoff, the landing gears fail to retract from their deployed position?
  28. What would you do if, during a flight, you notice that your co-pilot is unusually silent and seems to be suffering from some kind of psychosomatic illness?
  29. What would you do if, during takeoff, you feel a slight but annoying vibration?
  30. What would you do if, while accelerating for takeoff, you discover that you are on the wrong runway?
  31. What would you do if, while descending for an approach, you see a glider coming towards your aircraft?
  32. What would you do if, while flying en route, you see storm cells ahead?
  33. What would you do if, while in flight, your aircraft encounters a system problem that is not found in the reference handbook?
  34. What would you do if, while landing on the runway, you cannot see the runway or even the runway lights due to poor visibility?
  35. What would you do if, while on cruise, a flight attendant informs you that he/she discovered a very suspicious bag in one of the aircraft’s toilets??
  36. What would you do if, while rolling for takeoff, you notice that the compass does not conform to the runway number?
  37. What would you do if, while taking off, you recall that the Pitot tube cover was not removed?
  38. Would you still proceed to your destination if the landing gear in the nose fails to retract after takeoff?
