Chutes can be set up to auto deploy at a certain altitude, say 8,000 or so, give you a chance to wake up, prepare or direct your landing after the earlier nap time.. Beats being splattered...

It's the polar flights that get me considering landing zones, not much hope of finding any, then the miles of ice, even tho shrinking, would still be daunting... Best hope the plane body holds together...

So the falling, that's pretty primal, the stuff nightmares are made of...
