The plane would never leave the runway and would just be considered a conversation piece for visitors. Another words, a model plane. The job of a pilot is to navigate the plane to a particular destination safely. Airplanes have black boxes in the event of a crash so that details and information regarding the airplanes mechanical system can be used to determine to cause of a crash. Many people purchase flight and airline life insurance because of the "high risk" by taking a flight on an airplane. It's never a waste of money to purchase, since airlines will have to pay out millions of dollars, resulting from pilot or airplane malfunction if and when it is determined. So there has to be a black box, to bury the survivors in, or rather the people who survived those who were on the plane. I don't mean to be so morbid, but generally in these types of things there are no survivors, so the black box is a form of financially putting things to rest. In having said all of that, I want to discuss how technology can help assist with airplane information as linked to a smartphone or tablet device we may have on in airplane mode.
Let me explain:
Marcy and her husband Joe Dunk have decided to take a mini vacation to the Florida tropics. Joe Dunk being the more sensible of the two decides to purchase Tick and Bomb Flight Life and Airline Insurance. Marcy Dunk was upset about spending the $80 dollars, it cost for the both of them. Her rationale was that, "That's what life insurance is for." However, Joe Dunk disagreed and felt that his life was worth more than just a measly policy that is really for bills and burial expenses. The agent at Tick and Bomb Flight Life Airline Insurance told Joe Dunk to use their insurance app on his smartphone. "Why, I just want to relax?" asked Joe Dunk. The agent responded with, "The app with your flight and ticket number can track the altitude of the plane. This is important to make sure that the plane is not stalling and does not crash or fall out of the sky as a result. The app also tells of the air speed, approximate weight of the plane during take off and ground speed; if you get there." Joe Dunk thought about this. "Wow, that's pretty cool. I'm retired and all so I'm out of touch with technology. I thought I would leave that crap to the pilot." he said. The agent replied, "Well, I suggest you get the app and learn to navigate your own flight even if you do see them gates and can't do nothing about it!" Joe Dunk laughed and said, "No, this is the one I'm going to be flapping non-stop!" The agent replied, "This app sends alerts to your smartphone which may be necessary to automatically contact us so we can get things ready, and it is part of the flight log system that we have in the event of a crash we have information to go on." "Who knows, perhaps we can send that information to the air control tower so passengers could perhaps assist in preventing a crash if an alert indicates there is a problem." said Joe Dunk. The agent responded with, "Yeah, but if you don't, with all that insurance money you won't keep your survivors stomachs or hair in knots for long." Joe Dunk said, "Yeah, that nautical mile- the worlds oldest profession, pimping ain't easy! I'll use the app. Take care!"
