Safety Assumptions

  • All flight crew members will speak English proficiently.
  • The airline crew will manage the flight including obtaining current weather information for their destination and alternate airports throughout the flight and actively manage their fuel situation.
  • Fuel on board, including fuel reserves will be managed such that adequate fuel remains on board to safely complete the flight as planned.
  • The crew will declare minimum fuel to ATC.  If they determine they need immediate landing priority the crew will declare an emergency using the words "MAYDAY, MAYDAY, MAYDAY," or "EMERGENCY" before running out of fuel.
  • 9g static seats will adequately protect the passengers and crew in a survivable crash up to the point of fuselage break up.
