Re: 172 down Hope BC ???

I did a mountain flying course with a guy named Michael Peare out of Boundary Bay a few years back. He seemed pretty good if one is looking for an instructor although I don't have any other mountain flying course instructors for comparison. He might not be around a lot though based on his website e...

Re: V1 in small twins

This lad has questions, if I'm honest. How did the AME test that the prop was balanced exactly and how did you verify that before you took-off? Did you do a run-up, feather check or governor check? You mentioned you immediately raised the gear... was that standard practice or did you modify your pr...

Re: The Toughest Flying Country in the World

With regards to TCA Flight 810, cncp there is a book out there called Disaster on Mount Slesse - The Story of Western Canada's Worst Air Crash by Betty O'Keefe and Ian MacDonald, released 2006. You can get it at Amazon , or possibly your local library. There was no final answers though if you look,...

Re: V1 in small twins

The tech's toolbox and the AME's tool box go with me. The tech and the AME and pilot get in the 172 and take off first. Dude didn’t want to fly in the aircraft he worked on? Bad juju.....really bad juju. ;) I'm not sure what his thinking was, but I am sure he believed the work was adequate. We have...

Re: VIDEO: Cessna 182 Crash after Engine Failure on Final Approach, Nov 2020

Slowing up to stretch a glide doesn't work well in a headwind. You might want to speed up. Not much in the way of options except for the railroad track parallel to 12. Likely hard on the airframe, but perhaps more survivable than taking a chance on the usual utility poles and wires along an urban s...

Re: V1 in small twins

I flew 400 hours on a Seminole and if I remember correctly, it wasn't a speed we were concerned with, but the position of the landing gear. If the gear was down, we would cut power and land straight ahead. If the gear was up, we would continue a shallow climb and initiate the engine failure procedu...

Re: VIDEO: Cessna 182 Crash after Engine Failure on Final Approach, Nov 2020

The sideshow above aside, from what can be seen as the aircraft appears in the video, the pilot had it under control until a wing snagged something right near the tip. In the sequence between that and the nose impact, there was enough damage that fuel got outside a tank or tanks, and there was a sou...

Whenever you want.
I’m hoping the experts will kick us off. There’s plenty of material in the news reports to go on.
Yeah, most great pilots saved money on course books and just watched the news.

Re: V1 in small twins

Personally I use gear selected up and blue line plus 5kts as decision gate. Below that if the engine fails the automatic response is to pull back both throttles and I will take my lumps straight ahead. After that I have the option to identify and feather and continue Agree with that as far as pisto...

Re: V1 in small twins

If I remember correctly, isn't the calculation for the abort at the blueline in a piston twin? With the blueline being set at Vmc plus 7 knots.

Re: Critical Role of Situational Awareness in Accidents

Accident reports (often) attempt to pin down an accident to a single action, or omitted action on a checklist, for example. I disagree. An accident report is looking for root cause. I'm not trying to disparage the incredibly complex task of investigators. I wonder though if the relevant human facto...

Do you think there might be a better flight planning option available to you in such a scenario? Or are you so confident in your coarse pitch glide ratio that you will walk the fine line between landing or swimming? Tell us this...have you ever had an engine failure in a single? Get lost.

Re: 182 down by Smithers

Quick question, I didn't see any more mention of this on the TSB report. Quote from 1.13 and the propeller control was fully in (full fine pitch). Wouldn't a 182 glide further with the prop in full coarse? Yes, but I don't think it's part of the Cessna emergency procedures. The farthest glide will ...
