depending on where the plane is located, a landing is technically possible even without an engine, though the pilot would have to be very experienced to do so. Chesley Sullenberger III is considered a hero for landing the plane in the Hudson river and saving all passengers on board.

Yea the plane functions as a glider when none of the engines are working. I thought this was obvious?

Whenever you're on an airplane, a roller-coaster or some other kind of transport with various safety devices, it's fun to remember that the company that manufactured those devices keeping you safe was the one asking for the least money

You can actually transport oil with planes...


Doesn't make it cost effective or practical. It wasn't a question of why they can't, but why they don't.

I said CAN. I didn't imply it's cost effective.

You need to pay more attention to wording and meaning. Can and cannot mean it is or is not possible, do and do not means you choose whether or not to do something.

A parachute for a large commercial aircraft would never work, because of the size. Even if you were able to design a system that wouldn't take up much space and the aircraft's structural integrity was able to survive the sudden deceleration and re-positioning that comes from using the chute, it could be fatal to the passengers and here's why.

In order for such a system to work, it would have to be in the tail section, otherwise it would risk getting caught in the wings or engines when deployed. Once deployed. the plane would slow dramatically and lose lift. Once it does, the nose would suddenly dive and the plane would be vertical in the air, as the parachute from the tail supports it's weight. When that happens, any passengers and equipment, like food carts, not secured would fall to the front of the plane, possibly up to a distance of 50 feet in larger aircraft. If there was not enough notice or if the disruption to the plane from the engine loss was too great to buckle up first, many passengers would not be secured and would be either killed or crippled by the fall to the front of the plane. A small plane, like a Cessna, might be able to get away with that, as the pilot(s) are usually always buckled in, and the fall distance would e very short, regardless.

You're the one that misinterpreted it, not me. That's why I emphasized CAN. Never said DON'T? Look I'm emphasizing for you so you don't make the same mistake.

Wow you are really not very intelligent, on top of the fact that you didn't figure out that the question that was asked was why DON"T they transport oil with planes. Your assuming that my answer was they can't when I never actually state how I answered the question to begin with.

You mean you're. Because your is possessive.

Also, learn how to structure your sentences properly. Is English your second language?

I'm glad you can use Google. Now can you please learn how to properly use English.

I recommend English Grammar by Raymond Murphy.

And The Elements of Style by William Strunk Jr.

And I recommend growing up and stop being a man child, but we both that's never going to happen.

Parachutes wouldn't help that's why, just like how hyperloop never would work.
on smaller aircrafts they could maybe already have that.
