Quite interesting, but considering the instances and the consequence, quite unspectacular. Thanks for sharing it though  Big thumbs up

Cape Air is known around KBOS as Cape Scare or Scare Air.  Smile

Wow. I wonder what would happen if I was flying on a passenger airliner and the pilot passed out? I would run to the cockpit, and try to land that bird.

Well, luckily it was only a multi engine prop instead of a big jet. At least she had some previous flight instructions who landed the plane.

Does Cape Air operate only one pilot or did they both became incapacitated?

Cape Air only has one pilot in the twin Cessna 402. The 2nd pilot seat is for a passenger. I have flown in that 2nd cape air seat. It is fun

I heard on the news tonight that Cape Air is now paying for the rest of the girls flight training, at least as much flight training as it takes to get to where they can hire her.

Lucky!
