    I assume you're talking about a scenario where a ship or barge is placed out in the ocean so, for example, someone could hop from ship to ship and fly a Cessna to Hawaii. While theoretically it...

    The pilots could get away from the smoke, but what about the flight attendant? He/she is subject to drug testing too, and didn't have the luxury of an O2 mask to get away from the smoke.
