Storyline

Having taken the blame for an accident beyond his control, pilot Mike Hogan has been on administrative leave indefinitely; however when the airline is desperately short of staff, he is offered to be first officer and accepts, without enthusiasm, received with disdain by the well-connected commander. Surprisingly his come-back proves less then routine, as the captain gets knocked out and a collision as well as a murderer being transported by police require courageous action from Mike, his crew and several passengers, including soccer star Ty Conner.

Clichéd, but reasonable aircraft operations
18 September 2004 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Okay, "Rough Air: Danger on Flight 534" IS clichéd, but (as a non-scheduled, commercial pilot) aircraft operations, cockpit mock up, avionics, ATC, etc. are reasonably realistic. GPS moving map, digital engine readouts (but why the focus on EGT?), up linked weather graphics, and other glass cockpit enhancements maintain the appearance of technical cockpit currency. This takes the film a worthwhile notch above the routine airline disaster trash flick. It is obvious that someone with more than a passing knowledge of airline and air traffic operations must have been providing technical assistance, although he is not mentioned in the IMDb details. If you enjoy a good aviation procedural, then this is a diverting 90 minutes.
