Seat as a Floatation Device

Thereís no such thing as a water landing.

Itís called crashing into the ocean.

Sully is my hero. I am a private pilot and I would LOVE to have a couple of flying lessons from him.

I see planes land on the ocean everyday. Float planes are part of life on the British Columbia coastline.

When I used to fly when they instructed you to use the seat cushion as a flotation device I always thought well if you survived the crash at list the cushion would hold you in the perfect position for the shark feeding...

Keep your lower body still ... the sharks will go for those moving or bleeding first..

This is especially easy once you've gone West from hypothermia. I'm a pilot too, though I avoid flying over water unless I can glide to a safe landing strip.
