Engine Out! From Trouble to Touchdown
Responding to a simulated engine-out during training is one thing. Responding to a real engine-out is another, and as pilots we should know how to respond to ensure our chances of a safe landing. In this video, we discuss best practices for responding to an engine failure in cruise and on takeoff, as well as ways to help prevent an engine failure from happening in the first place.
Look Out! Avoiding Terrain and Obstructions
For many pilots, accidents involving terrain and obstructions fall into the “can’t happen to me” category. But getting caught in a tight situation is easier than you think, and escape can be difficult or impossible. This video aims to raise awareness of the risks and help pilots recognize potentially dangerous situations before it’s too late.
Taming the Twin: Four Rules for Safe Multiengine Flying
Multiengine airplanes offer better performance and greater safety. Those benefits, however, come with strings attached. In this video, we explore some of the proactive things pilots can do to ensure a safe outcome on every multiengine flight.
Survive: Beyond the Forced Landing
Our training prepares us how to handle in-flight emergencies, but little is taught about what to do after we’re on the ground. Since not every forced landing results in fatalities or even injuries, a little knowledge on what to do in a survival situation can go a long way. In this video from the AOPA Air Safety Institute, we discuss some items you should pack in your survival kit and what actions you can take to help reduce the time it takes to get found. There is also this document.
Overshooting that base-to-final turn can be a problem. Trying to get back on course safely can be dangerous.
A good landing generally starts well before the wheels touch the ground.
Every pilot learns the technique for a proper crosswind landing, but this skill requires more than knowing the proper control inputs.
While the checklist is important for determining how to perform a short field landing, sometimes it helps to think about why we do what we do.
When it comes to making a safe takeoff, there are simple rules of thumb we can all live by. Knowing when to abort a takeoff is one of them. Learn how to choose an abort point if your takeoff roll isn’t going as planned.
For many pilots, the prospect of crash landing in water is one of the most terrifying things in aviation. Bryan Webster has been there, done that, and says they’re right to be afraid. Listen as he tells the tale of a wild flight that ended in the drink, and shares some of the knowledge he’s gained in 15 years of teaching water egress techniques.
