What crash? Harrison Ford saved his own life and demonstrates why good pilots make small aircraft remarkably safe to fly

 

(NaturalNews) Flying a vintage aircraft that apparently lost power, Harrison Ford saved his own life by doing precisely what all pilots are trained to do in the event of a power loss: control the plane’s descent to make a non-powered landing that you can walk away from.

And that’s precisely what Harrison Ford just did, as this YouTube video clearly shows. Although Ford reportedly suffered injuries, he was apparently able to walk away from the accident on his own two feet, with the help of others nearby.

While YouTubers who have never flown small aircraft are quick to leap to false conclusions with statements like “Small aircraft are dangerous to fly!”, the truth is that Harrison Ford just proved why small aircraft are so remarkably safe when piloted by someone who is adequately trained and experienced.

The FAA requires ALL small aircraft pilots to undergo extensive training in emergency landing procedures.
