158 Last year, Australian student pilot Max Sylvester was taking his third flight lesson when his instructor had a seizure and passed out in the cockpit. Max managed to set the radio to the Jandakot Airport tower frequency and declare an emergency. Over the next hour, the air traffic controller, with the help of an instructor from Max’s flight school, talked Max down to a a successful landing.
