He's not piloting it, he's blocking access to the cockpit so that nobody can pilot it.

Hold on now. Hes willing to let someone pilot if their is some sort of bipartisan manner in which they can get someone to take over the plane.

He’ll only let someone fly the plane if the terrorists and the passengers can come to some sort of unanimous agreement.
