Its all about relative motion and being part of the earth atmosphere system, the plane is matched in speed with the earth. its the same reason we dont fly away when we jump up.

Think of a plane heading 360' due North. You are flying relative to the earth's and it's atmosphere's rotation, as @WTDoor said.
If the planet's surface was spinning away under you at 1675 Kph, you would instead end up going WEST instead of North.
Or if this was the case, if you jumped, airborne 0.5 sec, you would land about 232 m to the West:
232.6388889 m/0.5 sec
Sun rises in East.
So planet's surface moving Eastwards.>>>
A FIXED point ABOVE (outside the atmosphere) will APPEAR to be moving WEST<<<.

Is it illegal for a PPL only pilot to make an ILS landing?


It is not only ******* for a VFR only pilot to fly in the IFR system, it is also potentially very dangerous. Even many IFR rated pilots are killed each year from spatial disorientation. IF you are on a straight in approach to a runway with a localizer or ILS and just tune it in and fly the ILS I don't think that's an issue.

Why can t commercial airplanes use electronic view screens, like on Star Trek?


Modern Jet airliners already have electronic screens that depict the ground, the sky, maps, terrain and many more things, They are known as "Glass Cockpit" aircraft. These aircraft can land in Zero visibility fully automatically without the pilots having to see out of the window at all, just viewing the screens. The problems are in training of the flight crews. Full automated approaches and landings are far more exacting on the flight crew than a normal visual landing and crews have to be specially trained and certified to do them. The thought that on an automatic landing the pilots just sit there and do nothing is far from reality. The procedure is one of intense concentration and if the aircraft so much a twitches the pilots will abandon the approach, they have to watch everything. Training flight crews is a very expensive business and an international operator would have to have about nine crews for just one aircraft. Training those crews to operate with just view screens would blow the training budget out the bank. No matter how cleaver these modern jets are the fastest computer on board is still the one between the pilots ears and using all his senses and especially sight through a window will be with us for some time.

What happens if a private Cessna 172 pilot tries to land at big airports like JFK or O'Hair when there is no emergency?


It's quite permissible to do so, however a general aviation pilot in a low performance plane should be ready for fast instructions and quite a bit of maneuvering to stay out of the way. The best time to do it would be at night. Here's a youtube video of one doing it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KKvWn317tpU

Serious flat earth question considering avivation?


I recently browsed a forum where this was debated by the FE believers vs normal OE people. (Obloid Earth).
The FE'ers simply believe that photos, videos etc are hoaxes. :))

Where do you land if there is an emergency during a trans-atlantic flight?


You're stuck with a water landing (ditching). Hopefully at altitude the pilot can see a ship and make the landing in the vicinity of the ship for quick rescue. It so rare for a plane to lose power to all engines though that you should never hear of such an incident. Depending on the route, however, Bermuda may be within gliding distance.

Is flying during a snow shower dangerous? I am going back to Los Angeles from Denver on Wednesday, but there is a snow shower.?


As long as the plane is equipped for icing, which all airlines are, there is not really any added danger to flying in snow. Braking on landing may be affected if there's any accumulation but they keep close track on braking ability as each plane lands at the airport. Snow won't affect the way the plane flies as long as the wings are clear of snow on takeoff.

What are the chances of surviving a plane crash at like 30 000ft?


This depends on whether the plane breaks up in flight or just loses power and glides to a landing. Usually a plane can glide and land just fine without the engines if there's a suitable place to set it down.

How is a pilot supposed to find out their distance in miles from an airport they're landing at?


Using the old (pre GPS) method you would use the sectional and plotter (aviation ruler) and measure the distance. Using a GPS you can usually turn on distance rings on the screen or if you have the airport selected as destination you can read it right off the screen. If it's your home base you should learn the landmarks and their distances from the airport. In the Miami area, there are so many airports and landmarks, if you're flying there, during your preflight preps you should measure out distances to some landmarks that you plan to pass over and mark them on the chart or flight log.

Why do cars in motion seem to stop moving when I'm looking at them from high altitudes e.g. aeroplane?


In an airliner you are often cruising at 580 knots at about 35000 feet. When you look out at this altitude you are seeing (let's say) 40 miles so a car, if you can pick it out, moving at 70 mph in a 40 mile field of view isn't going to look like it's moving fast at all. By the time it has driven one mile you've flown about 12 miles and probably lost sight of the car.

Why don t helicopters have ejection seats?


because if you eject up you will get chopped up in the rotors. it is safer to autorotate and land the helicopter. if you land hard, all the parts that fall off are thrown away from you.
