Prayer not part of emergency procedure.

The last thing you want to hear on a plane that has a fuel gauge malfunction is the pilot praying out loud. It’s a clear sign the guy has lost his marbles. Turns out the pilot and copilot of a ATR turbo-prob aircraft which crashed at sea just off Sicily will have plenty of time to pray in jail, as both have been sentenced to 10 years for failing to follow emergency procedures.

Let this be a lesson to all you pilots out there: you have been trained not to freak out and start loudly praying to God while piloting a delicate aircraft. Otherwise, the only prayer you’ll be saying is the “please God, don’t let this guy rape me in the shower”.
