Ukrainian aviation engineer Vladimir Tatarenko has invented a plan cabin that can be ejected within seconds in an emergency situation. He believes this design could make surviving a plane crash possible. What do you think?
“Surviving in a plane crash is possible,” says inventor Tatarenko
Some argue that the detachable cabin could undermine the structural integrity of the plane. Also, if the plane explodes or is under a rocket attack, it wouldn’t help. Sadly, the pilots would be left behind in any case, too. Finally, some people question the cost-effectiveness of such an invention and the reason for carrying it out in the first place. “Of the millions of flights a year, less than 500 people die worldwide a year from plane crashes, ” said Isadora Kali Anne Seney. However, the inventor conducted a questionnaire and found that 95% of people would be willing to pay more for such a safety system.
