A380 cockpit

Hi guys, a friend of mine once told me if the A380 was to malfunction during flight, ground staff can override it’s system and fly the plan themselves using a laptop, how true is that?

doesn’t that mean that its extremely hackable?

no maybe its only accessible from a very elite team by airbus only and can only be accessed by a code stored on a flash drive?

I think @Aernout can answer this.

I really hope not. Everything is hackable. Really everything. If not now, it would be in 4 years.

Hahaha nice joke :D


It’s obviously true. I landed a 380 once with that system.
