- Garmin Autoland takes control of an aircraft in an emergency
- The autopilot software will ping nearby airlines and lead the plane to the ground
- Passengers can also activate the program from the cabin
A new service from GPS service company Garmin takes over small aircraft and guides them through the landing in an emergency.
The new software, called Autoland, will be available as part of Garmin & # 39; s flight aids for small aircraft.
Autoland will follow the pilot activity and in the event that a pilot does not respond to a series of instructions from the navigation system, the autopilot software will be activated.

Garmin Autoland takes charge of small aircraft and guides them to the ground in an emergency
Car country then starts sending signals to nearby airports and determining which is the safest for an emergency landing.
Once a landing place is found, the navigation system will automatically guide the aircraft through its descent and landing.
Autoland can also be activated by passengers via a touch panel that owners can make accessible in the main cabin.
Autoland is part of Garmin & # 39; s growing package support tools & # 39; s.
Autoland & # 39; s navigation asks pilots after a long period of inactivity and if the pilot does not respond, the autopilot software takes control
The company also offers Garmin ESP, or electronic stability and protection, a tool that monitors flight stability and orientation to ensure no radical changes.
There is also an Emergency Descent Mode that keeps track of height.
Car Land will not only control the aircraft through the descent, but can also control the aircraft during the landing
At high altitudes in small aircraft, pilots can sometimes lose consciousness or aircraft cabins may experience problems with pressure increases.
There have been a number of small aircraft accidents in recent years.
Earlier this week, a small plane crashed on a house in residential New Jersey.
In Michigan, three people died when a small plane crashed during an emergency landing.
In the summer, a small plane crashed into a house in Poughkipsie, New York, killing both the pilot, a resident of the house, and the family dog.
This summer a young couple crashed into the ocean on a flight near San Francisco's Half Moon Bay. They were saved after 40 minutes of treading water.
After realizing that they had survived the crash, the couple decided to make a video immediately after the crash.
& # 39; We jumped a few hundred feet across the water and the impact was very minimal, it was not difficult at all and we immediately opened the door and stepped into the wing, & # 39; said pilot David Lesh in an interview.
& # 39; We quickly made an inventory of what was on the plane. I grabbed my cell phone and the keys to the car.
& # 39; I knew we had about 20 or 30 seconds before it sank. & # 39;
