Brief Description:

Emergency situations are usually a surprise, but thinking through what could happen ahead of time is a good way to be prepared and minimize the startle effect. This session will include quiz question that highlight some emergency causes and situations, an outline of various emergency situations, and a group discussion of how to prepare for, prevent, and deal with emergencies, including:

  1. Engine failure (takeoff and cruise, including partial power failures and carburetor icing)
  2. Fuel exhaustion: the risks of running one tank dry, the high number of fuel-exhaustion accidents
  3. VFR into IMC: the importance of switching to flying on instruments when encountering IMC
  4. Electrical failure: subtle and hard-to-detect failures and suitable backup systems
  5. Systems failures: the importance of learning and understanding how the aircraft systems work
  6. Emergency locator transmitter changes: should you switch to a 406 MHz ELT?
  7. Emergency equipment: backup instruments, satellite communicators, cellphone satellite SOS messaging
