The Garmin “Autoland” System
Garmin is a company that makes avionics for airplanes. The company recently introduced an emergency one-button “Autoland” system on certain airplanes. When pushed, the system takes over and engages the autopilot, announces an emergency on the radio, evaluates weather and terrain and then flies the plane to the nearest suitable airport where it not only lands the plane but brings it to a complete stop.
Advances like this one may improve aviation safety, but crashes still happen for many reasons.
