Mid-flight, he radioed to air traffic control saying his pilot had gone incoherent. A flight controller responded and told him to follow Florida’s coast while the plane was located.

“Try to hold the wings level and see if you can start descending for me. Push forward on the controls and descend at a very slow rate,” the air traffic controller can be heard telling the quick thinking passenger, according to audio from LiveATC.net.

The passenger said “I don’t know how to fly. I don’t know how to stop this thing if I do get on the runway.”

He then instructed the man step-by-step on how to land the plane. He safely landed the single-engine Cessna at Palm Beach International Airport.

The passenger and the pilot were the only two aboard the private plane.
