A heart-stopping footage has emerged showing the moment a flight instructor narrowly avoids a mid-air collision with a private jet west of Eastbourne, UK. Footage, captured on March 7, shows the small plane veering to the right in order to avoid the oncoming plane which appeared out of nowhere.

Learning how to fly a plane is not a simple thing to do. It takes a lot of training and skills in order to complete the process and become a certified pilot yourself. Trainees are often accompanied by their instructors when flying their planes, even after they have completed the classes and gained some experience.

Watch as this experienced instructor puts his reflexes into action and avoids the dangerous mid-air collision. The instructor had only seconds to react and fortunately prevented a mid-air collision with the jet. What could have been a serious disaster was stopped and nobody got hurt!

While conducting a flight training in uncontrolled airspace a mile or two west of Eastbourne when a private jet appeared out of the blue and caused a little turbulence in the jet. Fast reflexes saved the day!

A mid-air collision is an aviation accident in which two or more aircraft come into unplanned contact during flight. Owing to the relatively high velocities involved and the likelihood of subsequent impact with the ground or sea, very severe damage or the total destruction of at least one of the aircraft involved usually results.

The potential for a mid-air collision is increased by miscommunication, mistrust, error in navigation, deviations from flight plans, and the lack of collision-avoidance systems. Although a rare occurrence in general due to the vastness of open space available, collisions often happen near or at airports, where large volumes of aircraft are spaced more closely than in general flight.
