A passenger who had no flying experience safely landed a small plane in Florida on Tuesday afternoon, May 10th, after his pilot suffered a medical emergency amidst the flight.

The passenger landed the plane at Palm Beach International Airport with the help of air traffic controllers, according to WPBF-TV.

“I’ve got a serious situation here,” the Cessna Caravan passenger was reportedly heard telling air traffic control about 70 miles north of his final destination.

“My pilot has gone incoherent. I have no idea how to fly the airplane.”

“Roger. What’s your position?” a dispatcher responded, according to the outlet.

The passenger replied, “I have no idea. I can see the coast of Florida in front of me. And I have no idea.”

“Maintain wings level and just try to follow the coast, either north or southbound. We’re trying to locate you,” the dispatcher said.

Controllers helped the plane descend and finally located it about 25 miles north of Palm Beach in Boca Raton.

From there, air traffic control coached the man to land the plane on the ground. It was said to be a safe and steady landing.

“You just witnessed a couple passengers land that plane,” a controller reportedly said over the radio when the incident came to an end.

One aviation expert said what the passenger did has never been heard of.

“This is the first time I’ve ever heard of one of these [Cessna Caravans] being landed by somebody that has no aeronautical experience,” said Aviation expert John Nance.

The Federal Aviation Administration reportedly said it believed the pilot suffered a medical emergency, as it continues to investigate.
