Pilot Reacts To Trevor Jacob Crash Video

Recommended Posts

This guy seems to be pretty broadly hinting at shenanigans, but not being a real pilot, I have no idea if he has a point or is just a conspiracy theorist....

Any real pilots familiar with this have some input?

Trent has provided an excellent review of the actions of this 'stunt'. One thing he missed though was the obvious reason why he sought out the airplane. How else would he recover the other cameras?

The disconnected fuel valve I missed noticing on my first time watching. That is highly suspect!

Oh look;  he thoughtfully took an itsy-bitsy fire extinguisher with him when he exited the 'plane in case of a brush fire!

I totally agree with Trent. Pilot made no effort at all to locate a place to land. There were several places that looked decent. Just a hokey stunt IMHO.

Multiple pilots on YouTube have said that it looks staged. My guess is Trevor's flying days may be over for a while as the FAA is investigating along with the NTSB.

Absolutely a stunt ... did he or anyone really think otherwise?  

Agree, his video convicted himself in terms of the FAA investigation ... I can see more rules added to FAR AIM, more GA pilot restrictions, more fees, more regulation, increased maintenance, etc. ... Jacob has successfully screwed every other GA pilot just so he can have more YouTube subscribers ... pathetic!

But he's very much like many other YouTubers that want to make the money equation work on that platform ... do whatever it takes.

Staged or not, EVERY other real pilot would  had tried to land that plane, he had enough altitude to do so.

The only reason you want to jump out of a plane with a parachute (as a pilot) is a missing wing or elevator

In my (ultralight) pilot training my instructor spent half of the time teaching me how to deal with a non working engine, and because of that I had
my life saved - engine failure on take off, did the best landing of my life, no damage to the plane-

Man, that jump is all staged.  Frack man, I would taken the airplane if someone wanted to destroy a perfectly good Cub.  Poop man!!!!

It is all about the darn social media youtube hits to generate revenue.

Dumb people ruining it for all the safe pilots out there.....

 

FAA needs to send the pilot to well pound me in the A** prison here.....100% staged...what about life on the ground? what if there was a house there....I am sure this was on a MOA area (from rewatching it probably not, this can start forest fires etc)  but seriously not funny.  This plane can be glided down and the Cameras were all positioned perfectly....come on man...this is a stunt.

 

And he Turned off all the comments on this Video - You know when that happens - something is up

 

In an real emergency you will not pull out your Selfie stick and record the airplane.  This was planned from the get go.  He pulls out his selfie stick at 2:30min mark

 

Also - he made no attempt to TURN the plane back.  You can see the ailerons didn't change direction.  Common sense will tell the pilot to glide down or turn back to airport.  He thinks like this my engines are out, I am out too...heck with this plane...my insurance will cover me and the monies received from my youtube hits..see ya.  

 

Check it with the time stamp - I Crashed My Plane - YouTube from 2min mark

I'm sure he will have some unpleasant conversations with the FAA coming up...I had also wondered if he could be subject to other legal/criminal investigations?  I mean if it were found that he purposely caused his engine to stop, thereby resulting in his plane crashing to the ground which could have killed someone, started a fire etc...I would think that is getting into the realm of criminal negligence (Canadian term, I think that crime has another name in the US)?

How about insurance fraud? If the evidence shows that he deliberately allowed the plane to crash, his insurance company is very likely to take action.

Well.....

You guys all appear to be pretty certain.

Assuming you are all right, it seems things are probably not going to go well, for this person....

I have to agree with everyone else. As part of my flight training, my instructor would constantly ask me, "Where would we land if the engine failed?", "Where's the next suitable landing location", or something similar... To just give up and ditch... I didn't know that was ever an option.

The guy is a certified idiot and should never hold any ratings again. 

A ridiculous stunt for self promotion. 

I would loved to have had that plane as would innumerable other pilots. What a waste. 


Thank you.

"He is going to have to hike back to the plane so that he can fly it out of there"

Is this guy a comedian?? :huh:
