Flights: Pilot reveals the scary truth about landing a flight at night 1

“They can’t always help it – nervous flyers especially – but the altitudes, speeds and angles are perceived to be far more severe than they really are.

“During turbulence, people sense that an airplane is dropping hundreds of feet at a time, when in reality, the displacement is seldom more than ten or twenty feet – barely a twitch on the altimeter.

“It’s similar to the angles of a bank and climb. A typical turn is made at around fifteen degreed, and a steep one might be twenty-five.

“The sharpest climb is about twenty degrees nose-up, and even a rapid ascent is no more severe than five degrees – that’s right – nose down.”
