In fact, there wouldn’t be any kind of problem even if people switch on their phones during the take off. This is because; all the aircraft control systems in the current generation are extremely sophisticated and the mobile devices wouldn’t generate a problem or interfere during the flight taking off. Now, there is a possibility of making use of the mobile devices on an airplane in a safe and secure mode. Also, in the subsequent years, we can witness much more changes in the aviation field.

Once, a small young girl started playing with the door in the flight when it is in air almost millions of feet above the ground and on the sea. In such a situation, Chris had calmed down the anxiety of the passengers and said that nothing would happen and the door wouldn’t open as we are completely in the air. Also, the aircraft is totally pressurized and in the aviation terminology, the doors known as ‘plug doors’. The pressure released in the aircraft will circumvent the doors from opening in the airplane.

Sometimes, the lights in the airplane will turn off and Chris explained the reason behind this. He said that, in order to make the eyes of passengers accustomed to the light outside, the lights will turn off. Chris had started flying on the flight since when he was at 16 years of age.
