Hi George,
I'm guessing this is Mercy Mission (1993)? See

Subject: [SCREEN-L] looking for a film

>Hi Guys & Gals,

I am racking my brains to remember the title of a film that was based
on true story of a young pilot flying solo on his little Cessna from
some Indonesian island to Australia who gets caught in a lighting
storm and his navigational aid is rendered useless. He manages to
make radio contact with a commercial airliner (a 747 I think) and
that older pilot finally guides him to safety by risking his own
flight. There's a happy ending of course and it's true!
