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. Max's Blog article on the Impossible Turn Max's Blog article - Impossible Turn Part II NTSB Report - Impossible Turn Livermore, CA NTSB Report - Impossible Turn Cirrus SR20

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.

Things Pilots Do that bug ATC ControllersHere's Brandon's List: 1. Monitor the freq. before you speak. 2. Cleared for immediate takeoff, but then not doing it. Or, worse yet, doing it too quickly when not prepared. 3. IMMEDIATELY- Used by ATC when such action compliance is required to avoid an imminent situation EXPEDITE− Used by ATC when prompt compliance is required to avoid the development of an imminent situation. 4. If you can’t accept or comply, advise. Maybe even provide an alternative that you can do. 5. If you don’t understand instructions. Please ask for clarification! 6. Repeating everything back verbatim. Use judgment with respect to read backs. 7. Hold short readbacks need the words hold short with callsign and runway number 8. Traffic calls. Use looking, or traffic in sight, not 'See it on the Fish Finder” 9. Spelling out local airports phonetically; Don't use the the Kilo 10. Turning early crosswinds and cutting out traffic. The AIM says turn crosswind when 300’ below TPA. 11. Doing a touch and go when cleared to land. 12. Turning base without a sequence is very dangerous.

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.

Summary98 Max talks about pilot communications. Some pilots repeat everything to ATC. This is better than not repeating key items, as ATC will have to say it again and ask you to read it back. The problem is there’s limited bandwidth, and only one person can talk at a time. On quiet frequencies this isn’t a problem. But in time critical situations, ATC can’t talk until you stop talking.
