An engine failure after takeoff is a serious problem requiring quick action. The aircraft is low and slow – an ugly combination leaving little time to select a suitable landing site.
Take off and landing accidents account for over 15% of all fatal general aviation accidents. These occur when the pilot has neglected to understand two important concepts - aircraft per-formance, and the abort point.
During an emergency, choosing the right field or road to land on is one of the most important decision you will make - if it isn’t possible to land safely, any previous good decisions you made simply don’t matter.
