Emergency Operations

The Airmanship series explores various aspects of aviation that will help you to be better prepared for your flight, and to ultimately fly smarter and safer.

Engine Failure After Takeoff

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.

Abort Points

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.

Field Selection

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.
