      Another thing is that the big commercial jets after engine loss can glide to a runway in some cases. ETOPS rules are based on glide distances.

      Yup. As long as cucks decide it make more sense to unleash violent Soros-funded thugs on peaceful demonstrators exercising their Constitutionally guaranteed rights than protect innocent citizens, this will continue to happen.

      And the authorities (usually leftist local politicians) always let the commies get within rock throwing distance.

      Damn, that's terrible. Horrible day all around.

      Helicopers are a nightmare to fly, I took training to fly one. The interesting thing about them is they can be safer than planes. If you lose your engines in a plane, you go down, can't glide to safety.

      If you lose your engine in a helicopter, you can autorotate to land. In fact, during training, you do it. They cut the engine and you autorotate to land the helicopter. Something must have gone really wrong.

      ??
      Pilot here. You can certainly glide a plane to a suitable landing area if you lose your engine(s). This is taught from day 1 in flight school. Flaps, dude.

      Autorotation has I believe a less than 30% chance of a soft landing.

      Autorotation has 100% chance of a reasonable landing and if you trained as a helicopter pilot as I did, you would know that as part of the training, you do autorotation to land after shutting the engine off.

      Yep, Cessna 152, dead stick, full flaps, stall warning alarm, flared, and touched down at 31 mph. Here to tell the tale!
