Why don't Airlines provide parachutes to every Passenger in flight?
What are the hurdles in implementing this most important safeguard? No-one survives in case of a plane-crash. Isn't it time to think of some ways to make air travel death-proof?!?
Any other ideas?
Airlines do have provision for Oxygen masks to come down at a particular cabin pressure...and they do have floaters-kind of thingie under the seat which we are expected to grab and hold in case of emergency landing on sea/watery surface and pray! Stewards and stewardesses needn't hand parachute kits to each one. It should be there like seat belts. They only have to read out/enact instructions!
And you needn't jump from a great height. As the plane plummets at a great speed, doors should open at a chosen height and passengers pushed out!
Is that non-feasible too?
Well, recently Russian Sukhoi crashed in Indonesia...killing all. Then there was this one in Islamabad. Not to speak of Helicopter crashes...
