What is causing steep rise of in-flight medical emergencies since 2021?
Statistically speaking, increases of that magnitude over a short time span always have an assignable cause. It can be more than one factor but is usually one major factor with potential ancillary contributing factors. The interesting thing here is that Squawk 7700s are documented incidents. The airlines and the FAA have the documented causes of all these incidents. The process is meticulous. I am a pilot and come from an airline family and worked for Boeing for 32 years. There should have been congressional hearings over this. The fact that it has been “crickets” from the industry and from media tells you that they are hiding something. To do so is breaking the law.
I saw a mention in an article about 18 months or so ago that stated wealthy people who owned their own jets universally required unvaxxed pilots. Could be related to this, you think?
I can think of 2 reasons why this is happening. 1) vax injuries 2) their woke philosophy hiring and dumbing down the requirements
This is precisely why the government used to dissuade pilots from taking new drugs on introduction. It puts hundreds of people at risk, both in the plane and on the ground, if a pilot is incapacitated.
A friend sent me a Substack - palexander.substack.com -- that details many of these -- the title of the one she sent me was "Pilot of Packed Passenger Jet Becomes 'Incapacitated,' Plane makes Emergency Landing." There was a slew of reports in his Substack. Obviously the FAA failed to follow its own rules about its pilots NOT participating in any type of medical/drug experiment prior to its commercialization after proven safety. This is what they get!! Pilots (and potential pilots since schools everywhere are mandating the jab so future pilots will also have heart issues) will continue to have heart problems. The FAA won't do anything about hiring back the pilots who quit because they refused to participate in the jab. It will only be after a plan goes down loaded with 200 people who die as a result that maybe the jab's horrible adverse effects will be considered. But I'm not holding my breath!!
I got fired for refusing to test twice per week while working remotely from my home as a tenured 40 year veteran professor. This government has lost its way and the courts are throwing out cases for those of us who are fighting back. America is done! Too many agencies have been paid off and compromised. We went from “Warp Speed” to “it’s 100 percent effective.”
I hear lots of snoring where there should be attention, even learning. But clearly, this scenario was deliberate in general, and pilots WERE focused on with the vax. Now read this back to yourself in a robot voice: "This news item does not fit the narrative."
You will not fly, and be happy.
When the pilots were mandated to take the injection, I said then, watch for problems in the air. Perhaps crashes, perhaps pilot emergencies? I just knew it would happen. I do recall a couple of pilots having medical emergencies in the air and the co pilot had to land the plane. So, how many did not get reported? That's a large increase. Even if it was caused by mechanical issues, that indicate shoddy workmanship or cutting costs too sharply. Something's up.
John you should check out Robert Snow, formerly of American Airlines. In April of 2022 he captained a flight from Denver to DFW, and shortly after arrival at the gate had a cardiac arrest. We’re it not for a Navy Corpsman and civilian nurse deplaning he would have passed. He has been vocal about it.
I have read about this issue occasionally, as well, but it certainly doesn’t get the publicity that it should. Of course, one reason would be that the airlines would not want these incidents to become public. However it only stands to reason that if vaxxed people in other walks of life are being impacted by the vax, airline pilots, particularly due to the mandate, must be affected as well. Sadly, as commercial passengers, we cannot demand that the pilot on our flight is unvaxxed.
‘Maydays’ or ATC direction to transmit 7700 happens when the pilot in command declares an in- flight emergency. Most of these have to do with mechanical issues that the PIC judges need immediate attention and special ATC handling. Out side of the annual NAIL report that addresses air accidents or incidents of a serious enough nature to warrant PIC declaration of inflight emergency are very few if any other verified data sources. IFE increases could be due to everything from new low-time pilots wanting special handling to a discretionary call because of a ‘passenger situation’. These incidents rarely if ever get entered into a record even if there is a declared IFE. To correlate vaccine reactions as a probable cause of declaring an IFE is on pretty thin ground given the pre-screen for passengers who are having medical issues prior to boarding. Most IFRs are if a mechanical nature.
That’s very suspicious. The insurance companies should be demanding an investigation. I’ve given up on useless corrupt government agencies ever doing anything useful again.
Not everyone has enough money to pay for all these articles that all these authors are asking for on all theses social media platforms. I understand you need money but we have budgets to respect. The cost of living has skyrocketed people are on pensions or fixed incomes and would like to read your articles but don’t have the money to pay. Sadly we miss valuable information because we don’t have a choice. You won’t let us read your articles or watch your videos so we remain ignorant and uninformed. Thank you 🙏 ❤️
Wow, I have been following this issue ever since Freedom Flyers group began to speak out and, guess what? yesterday’s People News had an article about a pilot, before crashing, who asked flight center to tell his parents he loved them. Below that tragic article, a slew! of relevant same accidents! how can folks not be paying attention!? And now, the So-So’s and Do-Do’s pressuring airlines not to bother with a second pilot, their skills and history, and their fast thinking. ~~~Oh sure, 300 plus people getting their last view of some city, but nowhere near an airport! Oh wait! They all seem to prefer visiting Egypt, you know that river, De Nial.
It’s not enough. All the organisations that coerced people should at minimum fire all the decision makers (or even prosecute them), apologise, and provide compensation to all those injured. But that’s never going to happen.
