The Impossible Turn
10 Things to Know after a Takeoff Engine Failure Emergency
#1 When the engine quits on takeoff, land straight ahead. Don’t turn back to the runway unless you have no other good options.
#2 Understand that Your Lizard Brain will take over in an Emergency And will tell you to turn back to the runway.
#3 Understand that people die trying the impossible turn
#4 Teaching and practicing the impossible turn at low altitude is malpractice!
#5 There is almost always a better alternatives than turning back to the runway.
#6 It’s NOT a 180 degree turn to go back to the runway—it’s far more complicated than that.
#7 Choosing the optimal bank angle to get back to the runway will be very tricky.
#8 The steeper your bank angle, the more rapidly stall speed rises.
#9 You might not make it back to the runway, and if you do, you’ll be landing with a tailwind.
#10 Always do a pretakeoff briefing Before you take off.

6. Relay information about things you see that others may not see.
7. If there’s any doubt about the condition of the plane, don’t start up without having someone inspect the aircraft, and consider having it towed.
8. Re evaluate your original plan based on what has just happened.
9. Defer to tower to sort things out….that’s their job
10. Be patient, its going to take time for things to get unsnarled. 11. Enjoy the show!

64 New Book on Engines, General Aviation Maintenance – Interview with Mike Busch of Savvy Aviation


64 New Book on Engines, General Aviation Maintenance – Interview with Mike Busch of Savvy Aviation

Your Cirrus Specialist. Call me if you’re thinking of buying a new Cirrus SR20 or SR22. Call 1-650-967-2500 for Cirrus purchase and training assistance.

64 Max interviews Mike Busch, 2008 National Aviation Maintenance Technician of the Year about his new book, Mike Busch on Engines. Mike founded Savvy Aviation, Inc, which includes a concierge maintenance management service, a prebuy management service, an engine monitor data analysis service, and a new 24/7 fast-response breakdown assistance service. His latest book, Mike Busch on Engines: What every aircraft owner needs to know about the design, operation, condition monitoring, maintenance and troubleshooting of piston aircraft engines, was published in March 2018. His first book was Manifesto: A Revolutionary Approach to General Aviation Maintenance.

Mike was born in New York City and grew up in the northeast. After majoring in math in college, he did graduate work in math and business, and soon after moved to the West coast, where he’s been ever since. After college, he worked in the computer industry as a software developer, and he managed major software development projects for corporations including Computer Sciences Corporation, General Electric, Honeywell, NCR, Phillips, and Visa.

In 1995, he began working fulltime in the aviation industry, when he cofounded AvWeb.com, a well known aviation news web site.

If you have a question you’d like answered on the show, let listeners hear you ask the question, by recording your listener question using your phone.

The general manager at IASCO Flight Training in Redding, CA and his assistant were arrested on Friday, May 25, 2018 on suspicion of kidnapping one of the students and trying to force him to return to China. Police were tipped off around 7:15 a.m. by the student’s brother, who lives in Shanghai, China. The student recorded the encounter, and you can click here to listen to it. Caution: it contains a lot of foul language.

Baihan Fu called the Redding Police Department after receiving information that his brother, Tianshu Shi, was assaulted earlier in the morning. Officers went to Redding Municipal Airport, where IASCO trains its pilots, and arrested Jonathan Lipton McConkey, 48, about an hour after the call came in to police. They also arrested Kelsi Hoser, who the department identified as McConkey’s assistant.

Shi, who also goes by the name Chris, was visibly distraught and shaken, when he spoke to a reporter. He alleged McConkey gripped his right arm and hurt him and told him he needed to get on the plane to go to the Bay Area and on to China. Shi called his brother Fu in China to tell him what was happening. Fu, who Shi said spoke better English, reported to Redding police what was happening to his brother.

Later in episode 63, listeners respond with suggestions up on what avionics manufacturers could improve. Suggestions include developing standard operating procedures and workflows pilots can use to improve safety, better documentation, APIs so that simulator manufacturers don’t have to emulate avionics, easier updating of navigational databases and firmware, and making avionics as easy to use as an iPhone.

Also, Max answers listener questions about IFR, including what in-flight equipment failures must be reported to ATC, and whether to delete the airport from a flight plan when it precedes an instrument approach.

61 Preventing Airplane Accidents and the Go Around Maneuver, VFR vs IFR for long trips

If you have a question you’d like answered on the show, let listeners hear you ask the question, by recording your listener question using your phone.

Max discusses several accidents that could have been prevented by a timely go around. One was a Cirrus SR20 that retracted flaps at too slow a speed and entered a stall spin in Houston. Another was a Emirates Boeing 777 that landed long and executed a go around without full power. An Air Canada jet lined up a night with a taxiway at San Francisco avoided what could have been the worst aviation accident in history by going around at the last second.

Max also talks about his experience that almost led to him going off a runway into a lake in Andover, NJ. A similar accident occurred last month in Knoxville, TN when a Cirrus SR22 landed and ended up in a river.

Next he talks about procedures for executing a go around properly. Finally he talks about common errors he sees when pilot execute the go around. The most common one is deciding too late to go around, or worse, not doing a go around when it’s needed. Another common error jamming the throttle in too fast during a go around, which can cause larger engines to choke and stumble as it’s flooded with too much fuel. Pilots also forget to add right rudder simultaneously as they add full power.

A lot of pilots don’t pitch up to climb away from the runway during a go around and instead just continue to fly level. Pilots also mismanage the flaps, either removing them all at once, instead of raising them in increments, or by forgetting to raise them at all. Another mistake pilots make during a go around is that they fail to track the runway and its extended centerline as they climb up during a go around.
