Abstract
It appears that hijacking will continue to occur for the foreseeable future. Capture of the hijacker should not be a prime objective of the crew. Psychiatric studies have revealed most hijackers are mentally unstable and they should be treated accordingly. The captain of the aircraft is the one person able to assess and accept full responsibility for the handling of any particular hijacking. The requirement for training crews to cope with this situation varies with each airline. A malleable training program has been formulated and can be adapted to the needs of any particular company.
