Two Pilots Suspended for Letting Child Fly Plane

A pair of pilots who allowed a 10-year-old dressed in a captain’s outfit to operate cockpit controls during a commercial flight operated by Air Algérie have been suspended for their actions. Footage showed the young boy holding the wheel while pilots guided him on how to increase power, as well as change altitude and activate the seat belt signs in the cabin.

“He was very disciplined, calm and attentive,” one pilot said. “I am sure he will be a good pilot.”

Smart. Similar to the pilots of Aeroflot 593.
