All Or Nothing
A Discussion of the Options Available Following an Engine Failure in a Single Engine Airplane Shortly After Takeoff.
Date and Time:
Thursday, February 24, 2022, starting at 19:00 Eastern Standard Time Download Calendar File
Richard Petrucci and David Lawlor
Brief Description:

For decades the wisdom was land straight ahead following an engine failure in a single-engine airplane shortly after takeoff. The” Impossible Turn” was to be avoided. We will discuss the FAA’s latest guidance that CFI’s demonstrate and teach trainees when and how to turn back to the airport following such an engine failure. We will also discuss takeoff options based on altitude and a procedure developed by Captain’s Barry and Brian Schiff to determine the minimum turnback altitude. We will show the video of actual test flights performed by AOPA staff using four different aircraft. Finally, we will review ditching procedures contained in ALC-560: Ditching and Water Survival. The proximity of Sarasota Bay to SRQ makes ditching an option during an engine failure after takeoff. And we'll wrap it up with “Avoiding Pilot Deviations” per Tampa FSDO request.

This will be a 1.5 hour WINGS safety seminar
