Boeing 777 autolanding in fog
 
Hi Captain,

Can the Boeing 777 and Airbus A380 land themselves in an emergency?

Scott Later

Hi Scott,

Both the Boeing 777 and Airbus A380 are capable of auto landing by themselves. However, certain conditions must be satisfied.

Firstly, the airport must have the necessary equipment, that is, the Instrument landing system must be available.

Next, the pilots on board the planes must be there to program the approach and landing. The actual landing is done by the computer. When all is in place, the planes would touch down right on the centre line and come to a complete stop on the runway, The captain would then take over, taxi and maneuver the plane to the parking gate. During the landing process, the captain is there to monitor the landing and to take over in case of any emergencies
.
When you say, ‘land themselves in an emergency’, you have to be specific - what type of emergencies? It may be able to cope with minor emergencies but incapable of handling more severe emergencies.
