Hi George,
 
I'm guessing this is Mercy Mission (1993)? See http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0107556/.

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!

Cheers
George Jacob
