Tales of airplanes, in which it is time to stop believing

Surely you are constantly faced with certain myths related to air travel that you are now ready to believe in anything, if only the flight went smoothly. And even despite the fact that today airplanes are one of the safest modes of transport, many people stubbornly ignore statistics and continue to argue the opposite. We decided to debunk the most popular myths about aircraft and tell us what actually happens during flights.
Myth 1: low oxygen levels in the cabin
In fact: those who think that a low oxygen content is specifically provided for in the cabin is specially misconceived to let passengers calm down and quickly fall asleep. After all, if you believe this myth, then the pilots of the aircraft should also be half asleep and relaxed. Therefore, do not blindly trust the opinion of some people.

Myth 2: oxygen masks are fakes
In fact: all those who believe that oxygen masks have absolutely no access to oxygen are mistaken. In case of depressurization of the aircraft or a sharp pressure drop in the cabin, you can count on a 12-minute supply of oxygen.

Myth 3: turning off cell phones is necessary so as not to interfere with the aircraft navigation system
In fact: you are asked to turn off smartphones during the flight not because you can interfere with the movement of the plane, but to be careful and not to miss important flight information or an announcement from the flight attendant.

Myth 4: the plane flies on autopilot
In fact: an autopilot is just an advanced navigation system, thanks to which you can get important information about the direction of movement and the position of the aircraft in the air. However, the aircraft is controlled solely by the captain and first officer, who is better known as the co-pilot.

Myth 5: lightning can cause serious damage to the aircraft
In fact: of course, flying over the ocean and falling into certain tropical conditions, you can experience not the best sensations, but you should not worry. Although lightning often gets on planes, they will not be able to cause serious damage, since special lightning rods are installed on the wings. Therefore, enjoy the flight calmly and don’t think about the bad.

Myth 6: in the air you can get drunk much faster
In fact: this is nonsense! No, we are not talking about what to drink on board the aircraft, but the degree of your intoxication does not depend on whether you drink strong drinks in the air or on the ground. Just the height and dehydration on some people act in a peculiar way: dizziness, nausea and other symptoms appear, similar to those when you sort out with alcohol.

Myth 7: larger airliners are safer
In fact: small private jets are not more dangerous than their huge commercial counterparts. The key role is played by the pilot’s skill and his ability to quickly make decisions in critical situations.

Myth 8: a seat belt reduces the chances of survival
In fact: everything is exactly the opposite. A safety belt can save your life in the event of a plane crash. And while getting into the turbulence zone, this belt can also do you a favor. With strong tossing in the air holes there is a chance to stay in the chair, not hit your head on the luggage compartment and not harm your neighbors. Therefore, wearing a seat belt during a flight is really necessary.

Myth 9: life-threatening to open an airplane door during a flight
Actually: you just can’t do it. And all because during the flight the doors are under great pressure, and just to open them, you really need strong power and perseverance.

Surely you are constantly faced with certain myths related to air travel that you are now ready to believe in anything, if only the flight went smoothly. And even despite the fact that today airplanes are one of the safest modes of transport, many people stubbornly ignore statistics and continue to argue the opposite.
