easyJet: Inside the Cockpit Episode 2 airs Thurs 9 May on ITV



In episode two we meet the pilots who have to trouble-shoot a cockpit warning light mid-flight and witness rare meteorological displays at 35-thousand feet. We will also meet the cadets who will take to the skies for the first time with paying passengers.

We follow new pilot Stuart Freeman on his first day in the job flying paying passengers. A faulty wiper threatens to delay the plane and training Captain Thomas Wenger needs to take control of Stuart’s landing at the last moment.

Captain Simon Matyear and Senior First Officer Jenny Herbert fly the longer model of the airbus: the A321neo. But just as Jenny is going to get her first chance at the controls, the flight must go back to the stand so they can deal with a medical emergency.

Meanwhile, Captain Emma Henderson has an eventful few flights to one of her favourite destinations: Iceland. She first witnesses electrical static known as St Elmo’s fire; she then speaks to a passenger who has had too much to drink and, on her way back to the UK, they capture a glimpse of the magical Northern Lights.

Inside the Cockpit takes you behind the flight deck door, revealing what a pilot’s life is really like six miles in the air.

Airdate: Thursday 9 May 2019 at 9.00pm on ITV.
