AOPA Live - Real Pilot Stories - Underwater Escape

For many pilots, the prospect of crashing in water is one of the scarier things in aviation. Vancouver, B.C., native Bryan Webster has been there, done that, and says they’re right to be afraid. In the Air Safety Institute’s latest Real Pilot Story, produced with the generous support of the Canadian Owners and Pilots Association’s Flight Safety Foundation and Donner Canadian Foundation, he recounts a wild flight as a passenger in a Cessna 150—one that went from “normal” to “unconscious in an inverted, flooded cockpit” in seconds flat. He also shares some of the extensive knowledge he’s amassed while training more than 5,000 people in water egress techniques. Hear the rest of the story, and find out what should be on your mind before your next overwater flight.
