Summary
192 Max talks with Flying Magazine’s Rob Mark about minimizing takeoff risks. Per the NTSB, 26% of fatalities occur during takeoff, so pilots need to plan for what they’ll do if things don’t go well during the takeoff. Engine failure can occur, but a partial power loss is three times more likely than a complete engine failure. Rob also shares a long list of tips for avoiding takeoff emergencies.

Rob’s Tips for Avoiding Takeoff Emergencies
• Don’t simply read the before-takeoff checklist; make sure you’ve accomplished the required tasks.
• Recheck that the tank chosen for takeoff contains sufficient fuel.
• Check that the backup fuel pump is on if the aircraft requires it for takeoff.
• Recheck that takeoff flaps are properly set.
• How many inches of manifold pressure and/or what rpm should the engine deliver during the takeoff roll?
• Don’t accept an intersection departure that leaves valuable runway behind you.
• Note the distance (in feet) of your upcoming ground roll.
• Highlight the intersection where the aircraft should break ground.
• If you’re not airborne by the highlighted spot, do you have enough remaining runway to stop?
• Have you surveyed the area off the departure end of the runway for potential landing spots?
• If you’ve never practiced making a 180-degree turn back after a loss of power, don’t make today the day to try one.
• If you’re forced into an off-airport landing, your job is to protect the people on board—the airplane’s insured.

The pilots did not call for any of the takeoff checklists or discuss what to do if an engine lost thrust on takeoff. The pilot responded to the emergency with left rudder input, the opposite action of what the emergency called for.

Summary
188 Max talks with pilot Eric Gundersen, who created a video that shows some of the factors that led to a midair collision between a Cirrus SR22 and a Metroliner at Centennial airport in Colorado. The factors identified could apply to any aircraft type and serve as a cautionary tale for all pilots. Here’s a summary of Max’s 9 Lessons Pilots can Learn from the Cirrus midair plus a tenth lesson for Cirrus pilots:

  1. Fly the correct pattern speeds
  2. Faster speeds require steeper bank angles
  3. Autopilots don’t bank steeply enough for use in the pattern
  4. Get comfortable with 30 degree banks in the pattern
  5. Don’t overshoot the final, but if you do, consider going around.
  6. Refer to a traffic system to identify pattern traffic
  7. If in doubt, start your turn early
  8. Use G1000 and Perspective Track Vectors to eliminate overshoot
  9. Don’t Get Distracted
  10. Bring a parachute

Summary
187 Max talks with Dr. Greg Van about how hearing loss affects people and the many ways that pilots and others can permanently damage their hearing. Hearing loss can also lead to depression, insomnia and high blood pressure. Exposure to noise above 85 dBA causes damage. Even driving with the window down exceeds that level. Pilots and ramp workers need to protect their hearing even when walking around.

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
183 Max talks about the Garmin G3000 and G5000 Glass Cockpits and the many aircraft they’re in from the F-5 fighter jet to the Cirrus Vision Jet. He also discusses differences from the G1000 and Perspective, and why the G3000 and G5000 are easier to use. He also talks about his new G3000 and G5000 book. Later, he interviews Nick Sinopoli, inventor of the ICARUS Devices Smart Hood for IFR training.

Garmin G3000 and G5000 Glass Cockpit
What do some fighter jets, light business jets, turboprops and even Joby Aviation’s eVTOL all have in common? They all use, or plan to use, the Garmin G3000 or G5000 glass cockpit! The Garmin G3000 and G5000 are used in twenty-three aircraft models, and manufacturers have announced plans to use them in a half dozen other models. Now there’s a new source of information for pilots flying these aircraft: Max Trescott’s G3000 and G5000 Glass Cockpit Handbook!

Max Trescott, the 2008 National Flight Instructor of the Year, uses a narrative approach to explaining the G3000 and G5000 from a pilot’s perspective in ways that both beginners and experts can understand. He starts by describing the hardware, including the displays and touchscreen controllers, and then describes how to use each function, including the radios, programming flight plans and instrument approaches, and using the autopilot and electronic checklists. He also teaches the data link weather products available through SiriusXM, ADS-B FIS-B weather, and Garmin Connext Weather. Throughout the book, you’ll find practical tips, gleaned from the industry’s most experienced glass cockpit instructors, on how to use different features. Pilots may want to keep a copy of the book in the cockpit and use the book’s detailed Index, so they can quickly look up how to use a feature. The book is 312 pages and includes 367 color images.

Some of the G3000/G5000-equipped aircraft covered in the book include:
• Cessna Citation M2, CJ3+, Sovereign+, Latitude, Longitude, Denali, and 10+
• Cirrus SF50 Vision Jet
• Daher TBM 930 and TBM 940
• Embraer Phenom EV100 and 300E
• Honda HA-420 HondaJet
• Learjet 70, 75, and 75 Liberty
• Piper M600 and M600 SLS
• retrofitted Cessna Citation Excel and XLS
• retrofitted Beechjet 400A and Hawker 400XP
• retrofitted TacAir F-5 fighter jets
