    Hello, I am Barbara from Milwaukee WI.
    My question is when the aircraft is experiencing in-flight emergencies, as a captain what is your greatest concern? What would you do to keep yourself sound and calm while addressing the issue?

    Hello Barbara,

    In-flight emergencies can take many forms. They may be a mechanical problem, disruptive passenger, a medical emergency, etc. The vast majority of issues are handled with methodical use of checklists, standard procedures, and reliance on extensive training. The confidence in which a pilot handles an emergency is a direct result of their quality training and experience.

    Great question. Thank you for asking.
