First-time student pilot makes emergency landing after Kiwi instructor passes out mid-flight
An Australian student pilot was forced to make a dramatic emergency landing after his Kiwi flight instructor passed out mid-flight.

On Saturday afternoon, Max Sylvester was just over an hour into his first flying lesson when he was forced to call air traffic control at Perth's Jandakot Airport.

In an audio recording of the call provided to ABC, Sylvester says his flight instructor - named by the media outlet as Kiwi Robert Mollard - had passed out and he was requiring assistance to land the Cessna aircraft.

"Do you know how to operate the airplane?" the air traffic control operator asks the student pilot.

"This is my first lesson," he says.
