Would having to don the O2 masks in flight due to fumes/burning smell be something that I would check the box for the question of whether I've been in aircraft incident or accident? I am not worried about this hurting my chances since we did nothing wrong, but not sure if this is an incident that would be listed on airlineapps.

Thank you

I don't know but the apps seem to imply "incidents" that would be reportable to the NTSB, since the apps always say "reported or unreported"

Per the regs: An incident is an occurrence other than an accident that affects or could affect the safety of operations. (See 49 CFR 830.)

Just my 2 cents

Was it in anyway reportable to the NTSB? If not then no. Every single pilot thatís been flying has had something break while flying. Use that for story time in the interview.
