Plenty of time for what, Conrad? Geez... I never gave this any thought. Just figured if it's my time to go, it's my time go.
I was surprised at the short timeframe!
15 minutes of terror, something I hope to never encounter.
Well, there you have it. I don't ever want to found out first hand ... If the plane is going down I'd rather it not take 15 minutes before the oxygen fails
It's actually 12 minutest not average and that's by design for safety. My bride is a flight attendant and I'm a student pilot. We know lots of secrets. 😎
I hope, none of us any get to check how much time and if it is enough to fix the situation high in the sky....
Yes, I knew. It shouldn't take more than a couple of minutes for an emergency descent to under 10,000 ft.
We just got home from a trip where the return journey was over 23 hours in the air. Different planes so we'd get a restart on that 15 minute limit. ;-)
Hopefully I will never had to count down that 15 minutes. I dont think it would be a pleasant experience.
Thanks for sharing this information.
that's not a thought I want to think about.... I'll be visiting my oldest son and his family in North Carolina in the spring.... I'll be with my daughter....
I'm with Nina
Conrad, That is a good question, wonder if anyone knows for sure.
I think this is information I may not have wanted to know. 15 minutes doesn't sound like long but, I suppose, in a crisis it could seem like (or be) a lifetime.
Plenty of time
THat is good to know. But, I'm hoping it won't be needed it all.
I know now. Thanks.
Conrad, at 5 miles up hopefully the pilot can get the plane low enough. If not you're toast anyway....
