How A Teenage Pilot Made An Emergency Landing..

Brock Peters

It was strange but a beautiful scene on Monday, January 2, when a single-engine plane piloted by a teenager and carrying several family members made an emergency landing near a two-lane highway in the San Bernardino National Forest in California.

In an interview, 18-year-old pilot Brock Peters stated,

“We’re coming through the pass and I hear a boom and then I lose all my engine power,”

However, according to reports, he landed the aircraft on a frontage road in the Cajon Pass, KCBS/KCAL.

A Piper PA-28 with four people aboard landed on Cajon Boulevard shortly before 10 a.m. local time, according to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

According to KCBS/KCAL, Peters was flying his grandmother and two cousins from Apple Valley Airport to Riverside Airport when his engine failed. Because of the terrain, he was unable to alert a tower at a nearby airport.

Peters stated to KCBS/KCAL,

“I can hear my grandma crying in the back,” Peters told KCBS/KCAL. “I’m like, ‘I’ve got to tune her out, focus on what I need to do and get this plane down safely and make sure everybody is OK.'”

No one was hurt when he safely brought the plane to a stop. 18-year-old Brock Peters holds a pilot’s license for four months.

Peters now intends to return to the cockpit next week.
