So Garmin have developed an Emergency Autoland procedure. In my opinion it’s an amazing piece of technology that allows passengers to land the plane if the pilot becomes incapacitated.
By pressing a switch the plane will enter Autoland and will search for the nearest suitable airport considering weather, terrain and then when it has set the airport it will pick the best runway to use taking into consideration the wind, it will also contact ATC informing them that the plane is heading there set the squawk to 7700 and will control the planes throttles, flaps, lower the gear and brakes when it lands.
What an amazing piece of technology.
Here are a couple of videos of the technology in action.
