Why Did this Aeroflot Pilot Let His Son Take his Place in the Cockpit? 🤔 Air Disasters | Smithsonian

  • Published on Apr 14, 2022
  • March 22, 1994: the pilot of Aeroflot 593 decides to let his children into the cockpit, and even allows his son to temporarily man the controls. It would prove to be a misjudgment of tragic proportions.

    One of the few crashes where there was absolutely nothing wrong with the aircraft

      It turned because t OK it wasn’t the fathers fault that the plane crash it was the sons fault for touching the steering wheel actually touching it like turning it in the stairwell he was not supposed to do that so he made everybody die imagine being on this flight dying I would hate it I would cry to death

    This is a prime example what you will call a "Crash Course" in aviation. Only in a flight simulator you will put a kid in the cockpit not an actual live flight where you got hundreds of people's lives in your hands. You also see the facial expressions of the investigators when they heard the Cockpick voice recorder.

    While seated at the controls, the pilot's son had unknowingly disengaged the A310's autopilot control of the aircraft's ailerons.

    Most mind-blowing thing to me apart from the obvious stupidity is that when Eldar noticed and first said the plane was turning, none of the pilots immediately went “Jump out and let me see” They stood and pondered why it was doing that from enough distance that they couldn't get back in their seat when it had reached a nearly 90 degree bank angle.
    I remember giving my adult kids driving lessons in my car and drilling home first and foremost “If I say come off - feet up and away off all the pedals” and we practised it so I was sure they knew and wouldn't panic and try hitting the brakes. I could control the car with the gears, handbrake and steering but if they hit the pedals in a panic and rammed the accelerator hard we were screwed so after a few goes, I felt confident and they knew to just feet up and let me take over. This is in a car. Legally. On an quiet road. With L plates.
    I can't wrap my head around none of the four pilots going “Jump up let me siddown”

      Eldar pushed the yoke too hard for 30 seconds which disabled the autopilot. It was a new safety feature added to the airbus a310 At that time the airbus a310 was new to the pilots and they didn't knew about that feature
      When eldar was "controlling" the plane The plane was in autopilot so the pilots knew eldar couldn't do anything The weird thing was when eldar disabled the autopilot no autopilot disconnect alarm sounded So when the plane was turning "by itself" They thought its the autopilot turning it not eldar thats why they were looking at the instruments to see whats wrong instead of taking the seat

    It's such a shame what people will do for their children out of "love". This is an absolute OUTRAGE that so many innocent, unsuspecting people lost their lives over complete foolishness. Shame on that silly pilot for allowing the "love" he had for his children to outweigh any common sense. The terror those passengers went through is unimaginable, SHAMEFUL. God rest their souls

    The autopilot particularly disconnected. It's still controlling the pitch but not Bank. All the pilots had to do was let go of the control coloumn. By doing this the auto pilot will stabilize the plane. It's a safety feature.

      It's blunder. Didn't pilot know his responsibility? I am a car instructor from India🇮🇳. I give controls very slowly step by step. That also in an open ground and after I feel confident, then only start on a very less crowded road.

    • Zahara Horror gaming
      Zahara Horror gaming 5 months ago +10

      @_Mester Playz_ The feature is good in case of something goes wrong pilots don't have time to shut off auto pilot so they can use the yoke to control it. The autopilot will know something is wrong and gives the manual control to pilots as they can make their decision and save the plane. Imagine a terrain comming in fog, the plane will shout pull up! Pull up! You don't have time to shut off the auto pilot u pull back the yoke and take the control. I'm sorry but the reason for the crash is the pilots didn't know the autopilot was off all they had to do was let go of the yoke then automatically the plane stabilize itself. But u can't blame the pilot he didn't know that this feature exists, back in the days anyone could get in the cockpit there was no strict rules. The crash was caused by stupidity,False training, And most important because the co- pilot also joined in. Like if this was informative.

    I once flew in a lite two seater with a friend who is a trained pilot; he took us up to two thousand feet, set a course parallel to the Western Australian coastline near Bunbury and told me to have a go. I'd flown Flight Simulators for years by then but was still in awe of taking control of a craft of that size at three thousand feet over the Indian ocean. So I held the stick for a while not even daring to attempt a turn until he told me to. Then he took back the control and executed a high wing, powered turn that scared the crap out of me, and next was asking me to have a go at the same thing. My chuckled response was no-way, no-chance, no-thanks. Lol 😆!!

      @Espen there should have been one but sadly no child shouldve been allowed to sit in the seat midflight,even with supervision and autopilot on.there is a reason why pilots dont get off their seats midflight despite havong turned on autopilot .sorry,but i think if the 15 year old didnt know how the plane worked,he shouldnt have been allowed to do this in the first place.pilot fault 99 percent

    I watched another full documentary on this and for the life of me under no circumstance should a child sit and take over controls in a aircraft. It amazed me then the captain didn’t even stay focused when the child had the controls also. Nor did any of the others their speak up the child was encouraged to go to the controls I know we all want are children to know what we do and maybe show them but the logic of this is mind blowing it was unprofessional and against every rule in aviation this pilot killed everyone of those passengers period it’s sad but that’s the truth living or dead this was this crews fault never play with a aircraft.

    The story reminds me of my younger brother having an impulse problem.
    I remember certain tensity or envy set him off. One time my brother grabbed the wheel of our dad's truck, we were going around 65 and we were in the shoulder of the road in an instant. Another time my brother broke a pedal of our Grandmother's piano. I see it as most people have one decent kid and one little ass. But people tend to love that little ass.

    The pilot probably thought he could get away with letting his kid “fly” the plane by letting him just turn the yolk the same way the computer was already moving it . AKA he put too much trust in the Autopilot. This is already bad if your stupid enough to let your kid get in the pilots seat AT LEAST when the plane started experiencing issues you tell the damn kid to get the fuck up so you can sit down and figure it out.

    Though a child or guest should not be in the cockpit, as soon as the son said that the plane is turning left by itself the pilot should have then jumped back in the seat right away.

  • Stella Kowalski

    To all you experienced aviators: my understanding is that Eldar unknowingly shut off the autopilot when he turned the yoke to the left. That action also set the ailerons to manual so in effect Eldar was partially flying the plane. Am I understanding that correctly? Thank you ☺️

  • Victor Fontaine

    Probably because the kid was forcing the wheel to turn while the father changing course on the dashboard. The computer may have become confused and thought the kid was still turning the wheel left, which is why the plane was banking right…

      continuously applying force on the column for 30 seconds partially disengaged the auto-pilot. The kid was unknowingly controlling the ailerons and the plane started to bank. The pilots didn't know this would only be indicated by a light signal but no sound (unlike soviet aircrafts which they were more familiar with). The report points that the pilots were insufficiently trained.

    Medical equivalent - doctor's son came to give him a surprise visit in the operating theatre.

The son accidentally pulled too hard and pulled the baby's head out of the body ....
    My point is, in any other profession it would have made sense to allow a kid to play with people's lives...what made him think it made sense in this scenario???
    If he wanted to impress his child thar badly, he could have chattered a private plane

      @souvlaki yes, the pilot shouldn't have let the child in the seat, but ultimately it was the kid who disengaged the autopilot and put the plane into a dive

    If there was no survivors, how do yall know he let his son fly the plane?

      @Sentient TvAfter further research, Ive learned the following , The black box records not only conversations with the pilot & air traffic control, but also the conversations with the pilots amongst themselves too. So, it’s possible that the investigating team probably heard the father say “Son you wanna fly the plane” or something to that effect.
      I stand corrected and informed on this matter!

      @The Studdering Truth He never did let atc know lol, it was revealed in the black box recordings that the kids where in the cabin and controlling the plane

      @Andy Ro Im familiar with the black box, (from watching documentaries and such) but would the capt put his job on the line by letting the ATC know “Im letting my son drive/fly the plane? That would get the pilot in trouble. I feel theres more to the story, Thats why Im asking initially.

      Aircrafts have a system called the black box. It records cockpit conversations and flight data. It is designed to withstand crashes.

    They just had to let go of the controls so the autopilot could fix the plane.

      Autopilot disengages itself when there is a big movement to the yoke. The son wasn't careful and must've disabled the A/P. I totally agree though. They didn't trust the plane enough, if they had just let go of the controls... well let's just say the result would be much much much better.
