Flight safety with SAS – Learn about SAS safety gadgets | SAS
Hi! My name is Elena Persson,
and I work at SAS. Today, I’m going to show you a few
things you may never have noticed. This is what the cockpit looks like.
Snug and cozy. This is the captain’s seat,
and this is the co-pilot’s. In case anything happens, there are
four oxygen masks in the cockpit. One here, one on the other side, and also just below their seats. In case of smoke development or a fire, protective gloves must be worn.
Here they are. If the captain and co-pilot can’t get out,
there are two emergency escape ropes. They open the hatch containing a long
rope, and swing out through the window. If you have flown before, you know that
there are emergency exits by the wings. Now I really feel like an air hostess. The passengers have to help open the
doors in case evacuation is needed. One thing you may not have noticed, is that in most planes, there are torches. Next time, have a look inside
and see if there’s a torch there. It might come in handy. We’re approaching
the back of the plane. You may have been upset that there is
never room on the luggage rack here. That’s because we carry a lot of oxygen. Here’s a first aid kit. I keep some more
oxygen down here if anyone needs it. This is the very back of the plane.
Our little galley. You might hear someone say
“Crosscheck and report”. That’s when we arm our slides. We cross the window
so no one opens the door from outside. That would inflate the slide
and cause some problems at the gate. In case there’s a fire on the plane, there are Darth Vader-like masks here
that work really well. Up here, I keep a megaphone. Ready to get tinnitus? Coffee? Tea? This is supposed to be used outside
the plane, to make yourself heard. That was a little peek
into our secret world. Thank you, and hope to see you
on your next flight.
