Cessna PILOT BECOMES INCAPACITATED IN FLIGHT | Intercepted by FlyDoc Aircraft

    Dauer: 18:05

    The ATSB is investigating a pilot incapacitation involving Cessna 208B, VH-DQP, near Brisbane Airport, Queensland, on 2 July 2020.
    The Cessna 208B was on its flight planned track from Cairns to Redcliffe, Queensland at flight level 110, when the pilot first contacted Brisbane air traffic control. The controller lost contact with the pilot 10 minutes later and the aircraft overflew its planned destination. The controller suspected the pilot had become incapacitated and another aircraft followed the 208B in an attempt to gain contact with the pilot. After communication was re-established, the aircraft was cleared to descend and diverted to Gold Coast Airport, where it landed without further incident.
    The evidence collection phase of the investigation will include interviewing the pilot and other involved parties, obtaining air traffic control surveillance and audio data.
    A final report will be released at the conclusion of the investigation. Should a critical safety issue be identified during the course of the investigation, the ATSB will immediately notify relevant parties so appropriate safety action can be taken.

*CONGRATULATIONS TO BRISBANE CONTROLLERS AND FLYDOC PILOTS!!!!* Very difficult video to edit. Long audio, long video and long radar visuals trying to have everything perfectly synced with both radar targets displaying so close to each other. Kudos to FlyDoc for helping from the sky recognize the issue and guide controllers on what was going on up there. Kudos to Gold Coast Approach controller for his professionalism guiding DQP to landing with patience and empathy knowing that his medical conditions might have been affected. Perfect example of what aviation is about.

@Maureen O'Rourke we pay a decent tax: not a high tax or a regressive tax . In every country, EVERY person benefits from health care. You, at some point, will know someone in your family who needs care. So in Aus, we pay taxes to help cover these areas. Case in point, our education system teaches us EXACTLY what your education is, how your taxes are used, and which group does not pay tax. Some of your richest 2% use fraudulent schemes & tax havens to deliberately hide income streams. Certainly every country has wealthy elites but the disparity in your country is more evident. Your education system clearly doesn’t teach you about yours! Nor your political & economic systems. The concept that we pay very high taxes here is the *real* bullshit. Do you have a Master’s degree or a PhD? Our community, for example, & its cumulative learnings, benefit others insofar that good education & robust health systems are essential to social & economic progress. Our country is the lucky one because we plan it that way. It ain’t perfect but then again you guys elected a far right Rep who called for people to use detergent to get rid of the “fake COVID-19.” What do you know, for example, about *our* political system? Anything? Anything at all?

@Marie Innes too right. One of the things which amazed me when I visited the States at age 12 was the lack of quality healthcare like our Australian Medicare system. Hell, 10 yrs later, when I revisited, I would tell their citizens my private health insurance including top hospital, dental etc was only $100 (2004) & they couldn’t believe it. Sure we have higher taxes but our police, education & healthcare is excellent & every single person benefits from this. Often people in the States say, “this is America, we’re the freest place, the best country”, & I’d be bewildered at that. Sure, so much of America is INCREDIBLE. My parents, refugees from Europe, who worked 3 jobs whilst we were young, always looked to the shining example of the American constitution, its ability to look up to the stars, conquer space and encourage free thinking but they soon realised that Australia was amazing. That we came here, when so easily, my parents could’ve found refuge in New York. I feel so lucky to’ve grown up here. My parents passed away recently but I thank them silently, every day, that they chose Australia: they with nothing but the clothes on their back & their first baby, my elder brother in their arms. Bless you, mum & dad.❤️❤️❤️

@I'm Learnding yes, now some do, it's thanks to ACA, which is the direct descendant of Obamacare, something that not a SINGLE republican voted for. Open your eyes all you Conservatives and republicans, open your eyes to the fact that most of the services you have when you need them are largely there for you thanks to Democrats and not a single Republican. Next tine you get your social security check, put an emphasis on the word SOCIAL, and give thanks to Democrat Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

A few people from other countries are a tad surprised that this was so well coordinated & calm. We’re used to nail biting events (& things that bite & sting). Truth is, most Australians, whether in ATC, the police, ambulance & hospital staff are generally calm sounding & professional. When things go to sh!t, fires eat up half of the remote areas of NSW & floods do the rest, most of us pull together & say, “it’s tough, but it’s all goods, mate, we’ll still get some snags on the barbie & Tooheys [beer] when we can.” That’s not to say bad things don’t happen, it’s that we’re used to them so rushing headlong gets us nowhere. We’d be like dogs chasing our tails in 45 degree heat. We’re an independent lot too with a relatively smaller population boosting confidence. But we’re still straight talkers who don’t go in for (much) hysteria.😉💕 The queen said it well, “it’s long, hot & arduous so don’t waste time getting worked up.”

This was an unusually emotional one for me. I mean, what do you do when you lose control of your own brain? Just be grateful that there are others who have your back. Further proof that most people are good people, and some are even better! Hypoxia has always been a big fear as a private pilot. Fortunately I live over the Plains and I don't need that kind of altitude in a Cessna. You know what I'm really grateful for? That pilot was humble and trusted enough to follow the advice of the controller. Humility saves lives!

Hypoxia, if that is what the cause proves to be, is an insidious problem for pilots that is not easy to identify as I found out flying a glider in wave. good that the guy had people around that recognised the issue and stuck with him until the situation was resolved.

I saw it was a caravan, i believe they have pressurization. So my question is was he supposed to be at that altitude and if so did his pressurization fail? If it did do they not have alarms for that and if he DID get an alarm why didn't he take any preventative action?

Why weren't RAAF jets scrambled in the emergency? (The ATC and FlyDoc were calm and competent, definetely NOT undermining their role) This aircraft was overflying Brisbane metropolitan area, had potentially hypoxic crew and could have crash-landed anywhere! If this emergency doesn't meet the conditions for fighter support, I don't know what else will. Clarification: I am not attacking anyone here, but just curious about the abscence of fighters when American Air Force would have probably target-locked the plane from the air (or even shot it down) and ground in the same situation.

The level of mutual respect is off the charts. The ATC does not issue orders, he requests preferences and makes recommendations. The pilot is wise enough to recognize the understated urgency. Imagine, if everyday people could interact this way, how much better our society would be.

It is, mainly because there are many turbulences near other planes (you can hear FlyDoc talking about how Cessna turns left while on radar he keeps flying staight and it's FlyDoc that bounces off him). Normally there are quite wide limits that use TCAS to track planes around, but ATC and FD pilot knew that they need to get close enough to see pilot himself to see if he is conscious enough to give him simple instruction like "oxygen" or "descend". Also registration number helped as even half asleep you still focus on your name or callsign.

Very good coordination between the controller and the second plane to see what was wrong. There was indeed a problem and the controller had a lot of diplomacy to land the pilot safely at the nearest airport. Without a doubt a crash avoided, because if the pilot was in hypoxia, then the aircraft would have continued in automatic piloting until it ran out of fuel. I love it when everything ends well !

Can someone explain to me about them referring to endurance? I’m assuming they’re asking him if he’s able to make it somewhere, but is there some metric on how to they come to a yes or no on that? Or are they just asking him if he FEELS like he can make it?

Endurance = how long he can remain in the air, basically refers to how much fuel the aircraft has. An aircraft burns a certain amount of fuel per hours, pilot can determine how much fuel he has left then convert that to an endurance figure based on consumption. Usually given in minutes, so endurance 180 would be 3 hours.

@Geoff Roberts lol I will have to see how that’s pronounced, I know how I would say it. We just say fuel remaining in time. Although I wouldn’t be surprised if they standardize the phraseology for that. If I was flying in Australia and you said say endurance, I would say you would have to ask her 😂

Vor 3 Monate

Geoff Roberts

Endurance is standard phraseology here. The controller would not necessarily know the rate of fuel consumption of a particular aircraft, so the pilot is asked to supply an endurance in minutes. We can pronounce Brisbane, it's just not how you think it should be pronounced. I want to hear you pronounce Coolangatta lol. (That's AYCG)

Suspected pilot hypoxia. At F110 (11,000 feet) most people have difficulty getting enough oxygen from the thin air. So they suspected the pilot might be hypoxic and even unconscious. It was hoped he would hear 'oxygen' and either check his supplementary oxygen supply or descend to air where he could breathe.
