What If the Engines Stop Functioning?
The idea that the engines must be shut down to create an emergency is a misconception. Although the engines will likely stop operating in an emergency, the aircraft does not necessarily have to crash. Planes can also glide without the usage of their motors, just as automobiles may move down a hill when placed in neutral.
It’s unusual for a flight to lose all of its engines at once. If this happens, the pilots are well-trained and can safely land the aircraft. There is generally always a method to restore the engine to operation.
