  • Being a pilot, even when an engine quits we are trained to fly it to the ground safely.

    • He is doing gta moves XD

    • @A random Pfp i am On beamG

    • @i Adrien0704 you can’t, that mountain likely had trees and rocks and at a slanted angle would likely cause the tires to blow on impact

    • I don’t think you can land in a mountain

    • @JW OZ yeah for dire emergencies and as a last ditch effort. Not the go-to solution

  • As a pilot. The first thing we have pounded into our head is that you can ALWAYS look for a place to land a plane, even one like that which is capable of flying at slow speeds which gives you lots of clearance for landing at small areas.

    • "captain goes down with his airship"

    • @Dio_VR that’s if the plane isn’t capable of recovery…

    • @RT when you fly a plane in many states it’s required for you to carry a parachute with you some even wear it while flying just in case all depends on the person in that case. There are laws that outlaw permitting of flying without a parachute onboard the plane.

    • I am a student pilot and even I can see many safe places to land, especially in such a small plane

    • I mean the first thing to do is to try to start the engine

  • He's fucked. Especially the shout out to his sponsors and the fact he has 8 cameras set up strategically. You're 1000% correct on this one bro

    • So he lost 20,000 on this?

    • These people are honestly going way too far and often people can tell when videos are faked. 🤦‍♀️

    • Also, that footage is not being investigated?. He could just take it home no questions asked. A plane crashes on US soil and no cares?. Maybe its a dumb thing to wonder, but it seems so suspekt🤣

    • @Shauka Hodan go pros send the footage it records to an app on your phone so you can lose a go pro and still retain the footage from the lost camera.

    • Not a huge felony. There will be fines.

  • Engine failure is absolutely no reason to abandon a plane, you’re trained as a pilot to glide it and find a suitable spot to land. Even if he escapes all fines he most likely will have something happen to his license

    • @Adraen , I'll wear a parachute whenever I'm in a small plane because those are the ones most likely to experience issues.

    • It wasn’t a engine failure he purposely turned it off

    • @Alpha Tango Mike then you play it

    • @OG well you play too many video games then, with your profile pic and videos you clearly know what GTA is

    • @OG that’s why we got training dude

  • As a commercial pilot and flight instructor, the steps you take when you have an engine failiure include Finding a place to land, troubleshooting the engine (this takes a couple minutes) and obv declaring an emergency, (among other things) none of which he did, even if this isnt staged (which it is) he atleast violated regulation 14 cfr 91.13

    • @Salty Cracker you have a device that can look it up and find it easily

    • FAR/AIM is a book to glaze over.

    • @K. O ah, i see.

    • @Salty Cracker § 91.13 Careless or reckless operation. No person may operate an aircraft in a careless or reckless manner so as to endanger the life or property of another. (b) Aircraft operations other than for the purpose of air navigation.

    • @Salty Cracker maybe a rule or something that a pilot must follow.

  • I feel sorry for those people who are easily "influenced" by this Chancer.

    • I'm seeing u everywhere

    • @💿Whitesnake enjoyer💿 sup

    • Influencers and cancer go hand in hand

    • Jimmyplayz204k

    • I feel sorry for anyone who refers to themselves as an influencer

  • You can fly a plane with no engine Once it's in the air, his flaps and everything should have been working just fine, Gliders exist.

  • You could probably land a Cessna like that if the engine was ripped off and so was half the fuselage. They are basically just oversized kites. But the only place this guy's gonna land is jail.

  • You would never bail over engine failure in a fixed wing plane (or in 99.999% of circumstances). You’d just catch a glide path to a safe landing area.

    • if you can't make it to the land with the plane, you certainly can't make it to the land on a parachute.

    • @David DeLaney what if you can't make it to land

    • Exactly! He was way to high to abandon his plane.

    • @Sam Schellhase depends on altitude and distance from the shore. Every pilot should know the best glide speed for the airplane they are flying and the first thing you do with an engine out is to pitch for best glide so as to make sure you have the most time to evaluate your options.

    • Honest question, what if you’re over water? Like flying over Lake Michigan, can you still glide all the way to one of the shores? Are there ways to attempt water landings in a single engine, Cessna-type aircraft?

  • Imagine a commercial jets engines failing midair and the pilots are just like "Welp the engines stopped. Good luck" and jump out lol

    • @Shauka Hodan what

    • and landed the plane on a straight land so it is possible.

  • As a pilot, I’m glad this guy is getting popularity for being an awful pilot so the FAA can do something about it. Y’all should watch Swiss001 analysis and other pilots reviews on this “event”

    • @Branden B arh okay awesome, gonna check it out🙂

    • @JacksonsChannel Johannsen I’ve watched him for ages. He’s a real pilot (not commercial) and is very entertaining. However, he does his research and knows what he’s talking about.

    • @Branden B based on what? (Just curious) And me neither🤣 gonna be some hardcore victim role in that vid.

    • Swiss001 is reliable. Can’t wait for his “The FAA took my pilots license” video

    • Ooh, got any links handy?

  • The dude was also flying with a parachute on which is something he’s never really done in his vids . He knew he was crashing that day .

    • You always fly with a parachute, at least in Europe it is mandatory

    • @NeoLeo Media Not never! I had a friend that was flying for air to air photography. MX removed the door entirely, and he wore a parachute while flying. Edit: but this dude had no reason to have a chute, and it was definitely staged.

    • It’s something pilots never do, ever.

  • He's fucked. Especially the shout out to his sponsors and the fact he has 8 cameras set up strategically. You're 1000% correct on this one bro

  • He had plenty of altitude to glide like 15 miles, where he could land it safely on the ground. Engine failure is not reason to leave the aircraft, its only a thing if controls fail, it catches on fire etc.

  • The most surprising thing to me about this whole thing is that apparently a small plane only costs 20k

  • I love how the plane showed the slightest malfunction and he decided to just yeet himself off of it instead of even try to control it lol

    • It didn't have a misfunction

    • Oh no, the cigarette lighter stopped working! Jump out!

    • He is probably confused if its real life or just Gta....

    • wow i wasnt expecting this to get 10k likes lol..thank you!

    • @CocaCola Grunt ah yes, my friend is sleeping, murder them.

  • Considering he went up alone and the fact that it's a regulated aircraft he would have to possess a pilots license. In turn, that means that he knew how to safely land the plane or at least crash it without life threatening injury. That's definitely staged. And while there's no footage from the final camera because it could have been severely damaged in the crash

  • 100% staged. I've flown that exact plane. I've done stall excercises and it is surprising how far you can go without the engine. It's basically a glorified glider with an engine

  • He didn't even attempt to contact air traffic control or control the plane in an emergency type of manner. You can even see his hand in the area where you turn off the engine. Also, engine failures doesn't mean the plane is unable to fly. You can attempt emergency landings gliding the plane, but it depends on the environment, and how high the plane is. It may be a mountainous area, but you can obviously see farm fields on the ground if you look closely, perfect places to land in emergencies. He was MORE than high enough to land safely.

  • It's called insurance. Not only was he sponsored and committed a felony in wrecking the plane but insurance paid for it too

  • FAA is definitely going to pound town on his ass. Aviation is heavily monitored and everything you do is logged, I'd love to see the aftermath on this.

    • @Andrea no he didn't, if he did the plane would not have cameras on it.

    • The planes prolly insured

    • I'm betting it's a rc plane that crashes but id need to see the original video first

    • @J F there will always be a Vegan to cry about the ants.

    • @Chaka Is life nobody cares

  • It’s even more funnier once you realize there would’ve been no way for him to recover the footage from the rubble after the crash, but somehow he does😹

    • Go pros send footage to an app on your phone

    • He had a fire extinguisher strapped to his leg, you can see it in some of the stills. Most likely for recovering his footage.

    • More funnier

  • Lol, even if those types of planes "fail", you can most definitely glide it down safely. This guy didn't even try. He had enough altitude to work with.

  • Even if an airplane's engine stalls, they're designed to keep gliding and be recoverable. He's high enough in the air that he had a ton of time to attempt to recover it.

  • Wasn't his only plane, it was his least expensive one.

  • Being a pilot myself. He didn’t think about running a checklist, any restarting attempts, nothing! He was from 5 to 10,000ft from the ground which literally gives him more than 5 minutes of gliding safely. edit: very cool reading your thoughts!

    • @B Pace Wow that's actually pretty impressive that they can glide as well as some small planes! Thanks for that little tidbit of information! :)

    • @Kkh, Fhoid he was only around 10k feet. Supplementay oxygen not needed until around 15k ft.

    • @Xaiborg surprisingly a 777 has a 19.2:1 glide ratio.

    • He was within gliding distance of a small airport in addition to several large fields and sandbars. 100% staged.

    • @Huzaifa Khambhati that can't be furthest from the truth. All airplanes even the most expensive glide in case of an engine failure. And even the cheapest one is waaaay more reliable than any type of other vehicle

  • Something noteworthy to mention is that pilots supposedly never fly with parachutes like that. I'm no expert but it's what I've heard

  • So the Cessna had enough time to where he can land safely, he could’ve tried to flip the flaps up and just slow his airspeed. So 100% he did it on purpose jumping

    • Not a cessna. Taylor made.

    • @Kyle Gilbert you can literally land these things on a 100 foot space of even remotely flat land. If you're in a total engine failure situation then you take what you got not just jump out lol

    • he was over a mountainous region no good place to land

  • I think it’s common knowledge to land the plane safely, and to not jump out of the plane and let it crash to the ground.

  • Engine failure is absolutely no reason to abandon a plane, you’re trained as a pilot to glide it and find a suitable spot to land. Even if he escapes all fines he most likely will have something happen to his license

  • Not to mention even if the engine fails you can still glide down to the surface

    • Yes they are trained to land the plane on the river so the plane would hit a hidden massive rock under the river until it explode and then some of the parts of it flew somewhere else in the places and it spread a massive fire..

    • @Георгий Петлин Oh. You obviously know nothing about being a pilot.

    • @Георгий Петлин are you a pilot? If not, why would you raise your personal opinions to the rank of fact? It's not a fact, it's your own lame ass opinion, IMO

    • @Георгий Петлин Are you a qualified aviation expert?

    • @Don Blasto how bout i don't...

  • I feel sorry for those people who are easily "influenced" by this Chancer.

  • A pilot is also trained to keep the plane in the air long enough to land it safely.

  • Not just having all the cameras, but how did he recover them all? Clearly staged

  • Im no pilot but I know a thing or two about aviation and I can tell he had some places to land + he ditched the plane too quickly

  • FAA always investigates any aircraft crash. If this plane was crashed on purpose then he will be in a shitstorm of trouble.

    • @Jae Remastered Where is Nevada? In Europe?

    • But he didnt crash it

    • Yeah, but the views tho…..

    • They probably figured out some BS workaround and filed some sort of permit for filming or some nonsense... So it was probably okay in the government's eyes because he's only lying to the audience... totally just speculation but that is my guess.

    • @Samurai codm He wouldn't have jumped out then.

  • As a commercial pilot and flight instructor, the steps you take when you have an engine failiure include Finding a place to land, troubleshooting the engine (this takes a couple minutes) and obv declaring an emergency, (among other things) none of which he did, even if this isnt staged (which it is) he atleast violated regulation 14 cfr 91.13

  • Also pilots rarely fly with parachutes, even this guy never has a parachute in ANY of his other vids, despite him saying "that's why I always wear a parachute when I fly"

    • @Floch Forster well I understand in this situation, but in the case of say commercial jets it’s better to pilot away and crash rather then causing massive collateral damage. Killing other innocent people.

    • @Floch Forster Not sure I could live with myself parachuting out only to find out the unmanned plane killed a bunch of people on impact. I'd take my chances in the plane.

    • @Russell Jeffery That just seems idiotic. Why go down with your plane and DIE when you can pack a parachute and LIVE

    • @Floch Forster most likely just go down with the plane and try to not kill anyone else would be my thought.

    • why would you not bring a parachute? Is there a reason for this? It just seems counterintuitive to me. Like yeah trained pilots would definitely know how to diagnose a problem with a plane or land it even if it has engine failure. But what if there is a scenario where you have no option to land, no way to fix or diagnose the plane and you HAVE to jump out? What would be your options then?

  • Ray, I think you're the only smart person I know of nowadays.

  • As a bush pilot I can say with 100% certainty that this was staged. In many parts of the video you can see areas where he can land his plane. He doesn’t even try to restart his engine. That plane doesn’t have electric equipment so he couldn’t squawk 7700 or radio a mayday call, but that doesn’t change the fact that jumping out the plane is a stupid idea. In flight school you learn what to do in this exact situation, and he didn’t do a single thing that the training should have taught him.

  • I don't know a lot about being an influencer, but I DO know a lot about planes! A plane this small can maintat stability just fine without the engine, and it looks to be at a high enough altitude to declare an emergency over radio and find a place to land. There is absolutely no reason for him to abandon the aircraft.

    • EXACTLY WHAT I THOUGHT

    • I think most military bases will let you land for an emergency like being out of fuel, so having no engine at all would get a lot of traffic out of your way

    • @YeetTheHeat aircraft that have never had an electrical system aren’t required to have avionics outside of ruled airspace. it’s a good idea to bring a handheld but not required

    • @Mara Stephens If he didn't have a radio thats a crime in itself

    • That’s literally the most basic knowledge of aviation….

  • You can land and even restart the engine sometimes so yeah, I think jumping out is excessive 😂

  • He also had a parachute even though pilots rarely fly with one and he hopped out way to early

  • Imagine if that plane hit people on the ground it could've destroyed a whole family

  • this is like the only video I've seen you make that ACTUALLY makes sense

  • As a Target worker, there was no reason for him to abandon his plane.

  • As a person that knows about aerodynamics and planes those aircraft are literally made to be insanely controllable as in they can’t spiral out of the sky and they can’t nose dive the planes blue prints are to literally correct itself there’s no reason to bail

  • When engine fails you can still glide the plane to try and get it as far from roads or to actually try to save it by landing it. There is a video of someone who had a real engine fail and landed the plane on a straight land so it is possible.

  • Fun fact you don’t actually need a pilots license to fly a plane that small

  • I truly hope that he’s stripped of all of his flying privileges as well as his social media privileges 🤣

  • Been keeping up with this for a while. He definitely crashed his own plane. Didn’t try and solve the problem, didn’t show cockpit footage, cameras in perfect placement, big sponsorship.

  • If he's a certified pilot, which he must be, he would know that plane can glide to the ground. FAA certainly knows.

  • You can land and even restart the engine sometimes so yeah, I think jumping out is excessive 😂

  • Dude wow I can’t believe this level of stupidity. You even get a wanted level in GTA for randomly crashing a plane, what makes him think he can just weasel out of this.

  • Most pilots don’t fly with parachutes on, and neither did he until this one video

    • @Fiat Multipla if you're high enough to jump safely, gliding the plane is safer. If you're too low to have to time to maneuver the plane, you're too low to jump.

    • @OttomatedCylinder how are they useless?

    • @OttomatedCylinder oh yeah that makes sense now. Thx.

    • @Fiat Multipla it's useless and expensive

    • Why don't pilots fly with parachutes though?

  • I’m just saying, I do think this is staged given the information but I thought about the cameras and the only thing that comes to mind is most outside cameras survived by dislodgment while the inside go pro could have burned up.

  • I feel sorry for those people who are easily "influenced" by this Chancer.

  • Also, he was wearing a skydiving parachute instead of an emergency rig. In slow motion, we can see a fire extinguisher strapped to his leg under his pants. He bought the plane a week earlier. He never wears a parachute in any other videos unless he's skydiving.

  • I shouldn’t have laughed so hard at the pic that shown up when he said “because of civilians on the ground”

  • This is most definitely staged, but a lot of people place cameras around their planes for aviation geeks to get a 360 view of the flight and stuff

    • @Blue 🔥 your content is better than him?

    • @Ardent Diplomat i reported him

    • @Blue 🔥 Nah my Grandma does better content that what you do.

    • See also: Trent Palmer, Flight Chops, and many others!

    • Because he was gonna spread someone’s ashes above the mountians…

  • He did crash it for clout he could’ve safely landed it with an engine failure you can simply glide down to the ground find a smooth area of land and the fact that he had everything ready to go is kind of sketchy

  • Would have been a shame if his parachute malfunctioned.

  • He still could have coasted it in for a landing provided there was a good area nearby. I think he staged it for sure.

  • His height, the fact half the interior is pre gutted, the fact the engine cowling is gone etc. Could go on. I'd like to think that he chose a good place for it to crash. Possibly private land.

  • The dude was also flying with a parachute on which is something he’s never really done in his vids . He knew he was crashing that day .

  • Idk how go pros work but how does he get the footage after the plane “crashes”? Cus if it’s through sd cards there’s no way they survive

  • Man spent more time setting up the cameras than actually flying😂

  • That mess can most likely also never be completely cleaned, because the chemicals in the plane will soak into the soil, potentially making the area contaminated and even infertile for centuries if not cleaned.

    • Infertile for centuries? That is not really how disasters on a small scale like that occur. Besides the engine fuel, and maybe coolant or antifreeze, those chemicals do not damage the land that badly for that long. Of course it does cause pollution but not in a way that actually harms the genetic composition of the land.

  • The way how the influencer abandoned the airplane with no movement is so hilarious lmao

  • There is no way this dude didn’t talk to someone about the legal precautions.

  • You can land and even restart the engine sometimes so yeah, I think jumping out is excessive 😂

  • Yeah the FAA is going to revoke his license for this, he won't be flying legally for long.

  • “Oh no! My 20k plane just crashed to its demise!” “Anyhoo, this video is sponsored by Raid: Shadow Legends!”

  • The engine stalls and he immediately jumps out. That makes no sense.

  • And any pilot knows that if you have an actual engine failure your first step isn’t to abandon your plane, you can glide quite a long way and land safely

  • His plane stalled at a perfect height he didn't make any attempt to fix the engine with out a doubt it's staged

  • When 1 celebrity calls out another, it makes you respect humanity more.

  • As a person who knows nothing about planes, I can definitively tell you there was no reason for him to abandon his plane.

    • @Vailix the poor lives of planes

    • thanks

    • @Jxms A. It's

    • @Jonathan Vandagriff You can glide for miles and miles; plus if there was some good wind there would be no issues finding a spot.

    • @Jonathan Vandagriff nah there was enough room for that plane to land in the mountains not on them there’s these trails or something he could land

  • I can’t believe I’m still wondering how far will people go for views/attention. Someone is out there now trying to one up with a better plan and not get caught 🤦🏿‍♀️

  • Ok so this might be a dumb question but idk anything about planes. Is it only a felony to intentionally crash? Or is it a felony if it’s an accidental crash too? That’s really interesting tbh, this def looks staged 😬 the shout out to his sponsor 💀

  • Isn’t it amazing that nine out of 10 pilots don’t wear parachutes but yet this guy just so happen to have a parachute on. Coincidence I think not

  • That's 110% staged he could've landed an aircraft like that with a failed engine with minor difficulties

  • You can actually land it even if the engine fails, Planes don’t just crash straight to the ground, they glide and gives you time to look for atleast a flat area to land, and you don’t really carry a parachute everytime you fly a plane. And the only reasonable installed cam was the one inside.

    • @GoombaHead there were several areas he could have landed

    • @GoombaHead I would like to see the inside camera. Bet he just shutdown the engine

    • @Mastaan Uppal how do you think a glider works

    • I couldn’t see an area he could land, and I rewatched it.

    • @Mastaan Uppal Flaps exist do u think the plane magically turns because of the engine

  • Another guy recreated his "engine failure" and glided it to the airport which is only 4 or 5 miles away

  • Guy taking a walk : This is a nice day, wait a minute, is that a plane, holy shi- 😵

  • Also, the plane is a very rare plane i think and lots of pilots were really mad just cause the plane is lost forever.

  • Imagine a commercial jets engines failing midair and the pilots are just like "Welp the engines stopped. Good luck" and jump out lol

  • The fact that he didn't declare a mayday and also didn't even attempt a restart on the engine is a red flag for me. Also the parachute

    • Those small body aircrafts can glide almost everywhere. You can also windmill start the thing and try it... But on huge aircrafts that's a different story

    • @Milk I'm a trained pilot, well only has 10 hours of flight on a cessna and it's part of our training to shut off the plane mid air and recover

    • @Mediocre Aim Horizon Main when a plane dies everything dies and it will drop quickly

    • @Leonard Bangay The hell are you on about? It’s not about believing myself but what’s known as objective lmao.

    • @Afro you believe yourself don't you?

  • He didn’t even try to restart the engine or go through any checklists

  • If he crashes his plane, he may as well make it look epic

  • All the people here wit aviation knowledge made me smile a little on the inside.

  • I really hope homeboy got a permit or something and staged this otherwise the FAA is gonna raw dog him for the next decade of his life.

  • It’s a piper cub it has a stall speed of like 30 Mph it could have Ben landed almost anywhere

    • Not even similar to a cub. Cubs have tandem seats.

    • @NeoLeo MediaYea, Its A Taylor I Think Too

    • I think it’s a Taylormade based on the Reg. but still he was in a bush plane.

  • You know something has to change when "influencers" get rewarded for breaking perfectly functional products.

  • Imagine crashing your own airplane just to have everyone snitch on you for it being illegal lol

  • Influencer : bro how can it be staged there's no stage!!

  • Love your vids bro. As a pilot myself….. yea we don’t jump out when the engine fails. It’s literally a lesson we’re taught multiple times and reviewed every year. We also don’t just Cary a parachute either. Unless of coarse there was literally no safe spots for him to set it down. Flat, long and unobstructed. I think you hit the nail on the head. He did it for views. Hope it backfires on him

    • @Mikeezy you must be a kid. Just because a plane crashes doesn’t mean it’s fatal. Most plane crashes have survivors and best case scenario everyone survives. When you go on a commercial flight do you ever see parachutes next to your life vest… no you don’t. For one thing it’s not even possible to open a pressurized cabins door while in flight. In cases like smaller aircraft like this one you still don’t carry a parachute. You’re safer flying then driving a car. It’s like saying how are you supposed to survive a sinking ship without a scuba tank.

    • @bread well not literally no one, I fly in Citabreas and Sky Bolts and they are aerobatic aircraft and by regulation of the FAA, you’re required to have a parachute if you fly those type aircraft due to consistently being outside the normal flight regime and in “unusual aircraft states” (45 degrees bank or more, more than 25 up and 10 down).

    • @Mikeezy you glide it to a safe spot to land, smartass. That's how you do it.

    • @Mikeezy It would have been a forced landing and it's state to ride those in than to jump.

    • @Jordan Blue Simply cause they are trained for these situations and you aren't, they have options, you think you don't, so your first instinct is to jump out. Also, one could only assume leaving an aircraft weighing tons up in the air that you're supposed to be flying is irresponsible.

  • The only thing that couldn't be staged is the possible causlites the plane could've hit.

  • A propel plane have the capacity to fly without its motor for a long time and is capable of maneuver easily so do to the fact he could 1 land on an open space 2 turn around and get over the airfield Although he “crashed” he was available to recover the video And not just that an FAA strict “rule” implies that if a plane crashes there must be an investigation and if it was on purpose he could be facing charges for reckless behavior and property destruction (no matter if it crashes on an open field)

  • It's Engine failure, not a wing problem, he can still glide it
