|Scary reason why you should never change seats on a plane|
A senior foreign captain pointed out that if you change your seat on the plane by yourself, it is likely to lead to the terrible end of the plane crashing during take-off.
Seats on an airplane are very important. It not only determines the comfort level of passengers throughout the flight, but also has a bearing on flight safety. A senior foreign captain responded to a question from a netizen in China, saying that it is best for passengers not to change seats on the plane by themselves, because this will affect the weight of the plane and the control method of the captain, and a careless one may cause the plane to crash during takeoff.
According to the "LADbible" report, a netizen posted an article on the forum "Quora" a few days ago, asking why he was rejected by the flight attendant when he wanted to change the seat on the plane. This question attracted the help of senior captain Magnar Nordal. He pointed out that passengers The position of the seat will affect the weight of the aircraft and the way the captain controls it. If passengers change seats by themselves, the captain may set the wrong system and cause the plane to crash during takeoff.
In his response, Nordahl also shared his experience. He once flew a 72-seater ATR72. In the front cabin, the co-pilot found that the climb rate was faster than normal when he took off, and he had to push the control stick forward to avoid stalling the plane.
Another time, 4 passengers left their assigned seats and sat in the front row before takeoff. The co-pilot found the plane was very heavy when he was turning his back (Rotate), "This is a very critical situation, because the runway is very short, we Impossible to stop." Nordahl said that once the plane is in the air, although passengers can move freely on it, there is no way to allow many passengers to change seats to prevent dangerous situations from happening.
This statement was supported by another captain, Darren Patterson, who said bluntly: "The smaller the aircraft, the greater the impact of weight changes." The impact is very small, but each aircraft has to fly within the specified aircraft envelope (Flight Envelope), so the weight and location of everyone and objects on the aircraft must be taken into consideration.
