Imagine the pilots of a Boeing 737 walking down a secure corridor inside the airport prior to boarding an outbound flight from Chicago O'hare (ORD) to Los Angeles(LAX). Just off to their right is a small room that they quickly access with a scan of their flight manifesto QR code. Once inside, they one-by-one step onto the scale to weigh in without their luggage. They then walk over to the corner of the
What just happened was that as the three pilots and flight attendant were weighing in, a signal was being sent wirelessly to an onboard computer/indicator inside the cockpit. That computer then set-up the floor scale, which is built into the flight deck, and runs from the cockpit door to the instrument panel and from side to side of the cockpit area. The Security Indicator (we'll call it), knows every individual's weight and any combination of the groups weight. It will know if the captain and flight attendant are the only ones in that area, or if it's just the captain and co-pilot, or any combination of the four crew who have clearance for that area.
During the flight, if the weight on that flight deck does not match up with the Security Indicator, then a silent alarm will be sent to the nearest tower, and a 'lock out' will occur. The computers then switch the plane to a secure automatic pilot mode. At this point, no one will be able to fly the plane; the computers will have total control. And a pilot will not be able disable the auto-pilot unless a secret protocol is met. That protocol would have something to do with the before-flight iris scan.
