The BAA Training Aviation Academy created a video demonstrating what it's like to fly and land a plane when you have zero experience as a pilot. It takes place in a flight simulator, with the very brave Greta attempting to adjust controls she's not familiar with before going wheels down for the landing. The BAA is headquartered in Lithuania, which explains the accent of the faux air traffic controller with her in the video. It may also explain why the video is regrettably titled "Inexperienced girl trying to land A320."

So, think you could handle it? There are endless knobs, lights and colors that would have to be explained to you remotely by air traffic control:

Greta did a great job, though it is fun to wonder what the simulator screen shows if a pilot royally screws up the landing.
