What kind of Cessna is that?

The kind with wings that can fly. Lol sorry. This is where flight sim x probably came in. Taught them how to fly and land. Just glad they weren’t hurt but I’m sure there in a lot of trouble.

There may be truth in the rumour that flight simulators on home PC's.PC' s can teach people with correct skills to clamber into the sky. About 3 years ago a young man taught himself how to fly. He flew all over Washington, British Columbia. From there, he went on a stealing spree of light singles. Eventually he made it to Bermuda before being arrested by the local Constabulary until he was turned over to US MARSHALS. Recently a young man from the North West stole a DASH-Q-400 from Frontier Aviation. He actually did a role in the twin! He eventually crashed, sadly he was suicidal. Fortunately it did not turn into a German Wings where the pilot killed about 170 passengers and crew. He Captain was locked from the cockpit. This is where anti-piracy precautions must be reconsidered for the land and ground. Just get a boot then secure it to the aircraft to it.
