    Due to ETOPS, planes would never have to land on antartica, as no commercial airline has made ETOPS arrangements for there. Planes fly higher than Mt. Everest, so they don't need to worry about crashing into mountains while cruising, EVER. They fly over antartica to get from south america to southern africa

    Planes DO fly over antartica, just like they do the north pole. they fly over it when going from south america to southern africa.

    We use magnetic headings to fly. But these days with modern avionics and with the help of inertial navigation system we are able to fly using true headings. As a matter of fact inertial systems measure headings based on true north and use earth variation to calculate headings based on magnetic north.

    Airplanes don't fly over antartica because its not the quickest route. Planes do fly near the north pole and over the north magnetic pole Planes will fly over the pacific ocean and but it all depends on place of departure and destination Planes don't fly over Mecca because its closed or restricted airspace. Emergency flights can pass through Not only can planes not take off because of the air density when its hot but several planes are restricted from operating at temps above 118 set by the manufacture. For most other and larger planes its 126 but again it doesn't have to do with density. Disney Land and World are restricted due to threat of terrorism, not an emergency landing and same with Pantex plant in Amarillo. If you are going to do a video at least get your facts straight.

    1. There are many reasons why airplane don't fly over Antarctica. First of all, it's almost impossible to establish Air Traffic Control points on or near the continent. Second, there are no destinations to fly to. Third, and most important, weather and light conditions. In Antarctica is much harder to calculate the time of the day and the pressure drops significantly due to the cold. As, SPOILER ALERT, airplanes don't fly based on 'height', but rather isobaric surfaces (parcels of air with the same pressure/density). Since the area around the poles is less heated by the Sun and due to the Earth's shape, those isobaric surfaces are much lower than usual over the North and even more over the South Pole. And since there are no objectives in the region, there is no reason to fly over there, especially as a comercial airline. 2. 1:30 Mistake. Airports designated their runways relative to the local Magnetic North Orientation. There is a big difference between Magnetic North and True North, which spawns few other differences as well. The biggest of those is that we cannot really measure True North, because it is defined as the Northern end of the imaginary axis around which the Earth rotates. Using sattelites and telescopes, recently we have gained the ability to determine more or less where that point would be, however we cannot measure it with an instrument on board. Magnetic North, well, the name says it all. However, there is a variation between where the Magnetic pole is located and where TN is. Furthermore, there are many magnetic anomalies around the world (like Kursk anomaly which affects most of Central and Northern Europe). Since there is no instrument to measure TN and Magnetic north Varies, you cannot have runways oriented relative to a single point. Runway numbers are formed such that each unit added represents 10 degrees heading from the magnetic North indicated by local instruments. Between the aproach/departure waypoints you don't have variations, so the compass would serve you well. 3. Why airplanes won't fall over the North Pole? Well, as explained at point 1, it has mostly to do with the fact that the isobaric surfaces are much lower, so for the same height, you have more flight levels compared to a temperate zone. This puts problems to safety and navigation. Having two big magnetic anomalies (the Magnetic North over Canada and the Kursk anomaly in Russia) certainly does not really help magnetic navigation. However, saying that airplanes don't fly over the North Pole is a bit of an over-statement. They might not go over the full arctic ocean, but Northern corridors exist and are one of most valuable pieces of airspace out there. 4. Himalayas and everything around. Well, again, isobaric surfaces. Over the mountains those can fluctuate as well. Especially with upwards and downards currents generated by the wind and high altitudes. A FL of 380 for examples is roughly equivalent to 12k meters. However, because the pressure can drop, the altitude of an airplane flying on the same FL can decrease as well. And with such a low margin of error, well, hopefully you won't have to hit a mountain. Of course, safety concers of cabin pressure drop are also valid. In fact, if you were to fly over Tibet, which has an altitude of 5,000 meters, you had nowhere to descent. Average humans can breathe normally up to 3000 meters. You'd be flying 2,000m above that. And at high speed.

    Plainly put, airport runways are numbered according to compass bearings. This means runway numbers are based on the compass with 360 representing north, 90 representing east, 180 representing south, and 270 representing west. Runways are numbered between 01 and 36.Mar 9, 2015

    How is flying over antaricica any different than a north pole route? Antarctica doesnt get hardly any snow either, the reason planes dont fly over antarctica is because most planes are flying beween locations in the northern hemisphere therefore it makes no sense to use it... u cant use an ocean or the north pole as a good emergency landing either...
