Summary
111 Max talks about a SR22 icing accident that killed a client. Meteorologist Scott Dennstaedt analyzes the weather, which had severe icing in clouds, and talks about tools pilots can use in preflight to identify possible icing. Ice often forms first on the tail. Tailplane stalls pitch an aircraft down and require a different recovery method than wing stalls. Speeds were too high to use the parachute.

The accident aircraft was a normally aspirated SR22 which had a TKS anti-icing system, but not the more robust FIKI system that permits flight in known icing. The aircraft didn’t have built-in oxygen, which may be why the aircraft was flown at the 14,000 feet, the maximum altitude at which a pilot can fly for up to 30 minutes without supplemental oxygen. The minimum en route altitude was 13,300 feet, so when the pilot encountered ice, he was unable to descend.

For the first eleven minutes at 14,000 feet, flight data appeared normal. But in the next three minutes the aircraft’s speed decreased by 60 knots, while climbing 600 feet, or about 200 feet per minute, suggesting the aircraft had picked up a heavy load of ice. The aircraft then disappeared.

Simulations show that in a tailplane stall, an aircraft pitches down sharply and rapidly increases speed. Most likely, the accident aircraft reached 200 knots in about five seconds, which would be too fast to deploy the CAPS parachute. Recovery from a tailplane are the opposite of a wing stall that pilots practice. To recover, a pilot needs to pull back on the yoke an reduce power.

Summary
109 Max talks about Avoiding Midair and Near Midair Collisions. He recently had two near midair collisions (NMAC). While midair collisions are rare, NMACs are common, and pilots who have one should report it to the FAA. Collisions are more likely with aircraft with no radios and with agricultural aircraft. To avoid midairs, pilots should use flight following and good scanning techniques.

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.

Summary
106 Max talks with Rob Mark about three recent VFR into IMC fatal accidents. All involved Private pilots, though these kinds of accidents also happen to instrument rated pilots. A common factor was poor preflight decision making, as these pilots shouldn’t have taken off. But pilots can also get into IMC if good weather very slowly deteriorates to bad weather. We also talk about how to avoid getting into these kinds of accidents, and what to do if you accidentally fly into a cloud.

Rob Mark is uniquely qualified to help, as he is the Sr. Editor for Flying magazine and he runs the JetWhine blog. He’s one of the few people in the world who’s worked as both an air traffic controller and as an airline pilot.

103 Cirrus CAPS Parachute Pull over the Caribbean – Interview Ed Regensburg


103 Cirrus CAPS Parachute Pull over the Caribbean – Interview Ed Regensburg

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.

Summary
On March 5, 2019, two pilots flying a Cirrus SR22 noticed oil pressure dropping rapidly, and soon after, the engine quit. They turned toward land 30 miles away and pulled the airplane’s CAPS parachute. They deployed their raft, which flipped over in eight to ten foot swells. The pilot dived out to right the raft and both men got aboard. But they had no idea who might be coming to rescue them.

Thirty minutes later, a US Coast Guard plane appeared flying a search pattern looking for the men. They tried to use the two flares to signal the plane, but both flares failed to ignite. As the plane flew away in the distance, they didn’t know if they’d been seen.

One of the pilots got sick in the rough seas and began throwing up over the side. About two hours later, the other pilot spotted a ship in the distance. Both men wondered would the ship see them. And if it didn’t, would it accidentally run them over?

Princess Cruises’ Regal Princess was sailing towards St. Thomas, when the US Coast Guard requested that they reverse course to search for the men. The Regal Princess is twenty stories high and was easy for the pilots to spot miles away, but by contrast, they were just a small dot that rose and fell among the waves and white caps.

The pilots Ed Regensburg and Dan Tucker were eventually spotted and brought aboard the cruise ship. In this podcast, Ed Regensburg describe the entire experience from when he first spotted the low oil pressure warning until they were home again in Greensboro, NC.

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.

Summary
102 Max talks with two pilots who encountered carbon monoxide in the cockpit just days apart from each other. They’ll tell us how they discovered the CO, what they did about it, and what caused it. One pilot, flying in a Cessna 182RG, purchased a Sensorcon portable CO detector a few months ago and in cruise, measured 40 to 80 ppm of CO, depending upon where he held the sensor. A mechanic found that the C-clamp holding the EGT probe was loose, allowing exhaust gases to leak through the hole the probe is mounted in.

The other pilot, who was flying a C180 Skywagon, had readings of 72 ppm in cruise. That pilot had a backfire at startup, and backfires can damage the exhaust system to the point where they cause a carbon monoxide leak, so you probably want to have your exhaust system checked out if you have a backfire when starting an aircraft. At the destination, a mechanic found that the #1 Exhaust riser had broken at its collar where it bolts to the cylinder, creating an exhaust leak.
