    Intentional danger

    I was asked to fly a terminally ill cancer patient yesterday. This would be a scenic flight for fun only. He is 39 years old, the son of a friend and short on life. He had to cancel due to feeling poorly.

    It reminded me of the flight Pete, my primary instructor, went on in 1990 with a local guy for "a scenic". The guy jumped out of the plane right onto his house in Massachusetts. It was a divorce thing and his suicide was noted in the papers. Pete tried to hang onto him unsuccessfully as he left the C172. The fellow did what he intended to do.

    In the aftermath the guy from the plane's insurance company told Pete that there are many more of these than you would think. Instead of just jumping out, a suicidal person will take the plane and pilot down with him. Porbably putting his knees against the yoke.

    This looks like an accident for insurance and immediate appearances. Gets counted in the wrong statistical column.

    This went through my mind as I said "Yes" to my friend's son's request.

    Any way to be generous and caring... and safe too?
