Food contamination:
-I would completely ban crewmembers from eating and drinking from 24 hours before flying until after the landing. That would also limit the "one pilot goes to the bathroom and the other crashes the plane" risk (but I would still force them to wear diapers, just in case), and Flyboy's usual routine of drunken forest running.

Fire protection:
-To reduce the chances of a deadly fire after a landing screw-up by stupid pilots, airplanes should only land on water. For those affected by unsightly scars, free boob implants (independent of gender) to distract other people from viewing the scars.
-Water landing survivability: Make inflatable planes.

Braking:
-Make the whole runway from EMAS (not necessary if landing in water, see above).
- With respect to nets, I seem to remember watching a movie as a young Not_Karlie in which a Concorde (or maybe a fictional SST) was successfully slowed down with like a million of them.

I'm somewhat surprised that he did not propose the good old detachable cabin.

Apparently Evanie does not like the idea of ballistic parachutes...

America also invented Pizza and French Fries, Chinese food and Chimichangas as proven by an internet search: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yv7UJLOyERs

Also note that it contains a Frenchman.
