Crew Save Pilot Ejected from Plane, Awarded ‘Seafarer of the Year’

Map of Plane crash Cirrus SR-22 off Maui Hawaii
On 25 June 2015 a single pilot aircraft Cirrus SR-22 destined for Kahului had ran out of fuel 253 miles northeast of Maui, Hawaii, which the flight originated in Tracy, California.

The pilot was able to deploy the aircraft’s airframe parachute system and safely exit the aircraft onto a life raft.

The Coast Guard Joint Rescue Coordination Center Honolulu coordinate to a cruise ship Veendam en route to Lahaina for the rescue of the pilot.

At that time, the weather conditions were not great as sea waves are nine to twelve feet and winds are 25 to 28mph but the crew of the MS Veendam managed to rescue the pilot, which is reported to be in good condition.

The captain and crew of Holland America Line’s MS Veendam were named “Seafarer of the Year” at this year’s Lloyd’s List North American Maritime Awards, for the rescue of a pilot.

The “Seafarer of the Year” award recognizes the skills, bravery and professionalism that seafarers demonstrate daily.

The cruise line received the award at a ceremony in New York in May.

Holland America Line participates in rescues at sea whenever called upon. Two other vessels of Holland America made similar rescues last year, ms Zuiderdam rescued eight crewmembers from a sinking vessel in the Caribbean and the cruise lines ms Zaandam came to the aid of seven stranded crewmembers at the Arctowski Polish research station at King George Island in Antarctica.
