Hybrid airplane: When your plane runs out of gas

Here is a humourous safety video (Hybrid Airplane: When Your Plane Runs Out of Gas) from the AOPA Air Safety Foundation that was posted on FlightSchoolList.com about a not so humourous subject: Fuel exhaustion. The AOPA video is a spoof about aircraft running on “hybrid” power but it also noted that that in an average week, three general aviation aircraft crash due to fuel management (or mismanagement) issues. That’s no small number and for the most part, such accidents are preventable if pilots follow proper procedures before taking off.
