Practical Risk Management for Takeoffs & Landings – KING SCHOOLS Video

October 6, 2010

50% of all accidents occur during takeoffs and landings. That’s because these critical phases of flight require not only physical skill but also superior decision-making risk management that’s frequently overlooked during typical flight training.

    I thought retractable gear planes had “weight on wheel” switches to prevent such an occurrence.

    The way I was tought during touch and goes was, fingers on flaps – confirm flaps – raise flaps..

    This was done for the day I might start flying retractables..

    An like the King says, if its a full stop landing. Wait until I have exited the runway and come to a complete stop then flaps, transponder and lights…

    We had this happen a couple of months ago at our airport. Was an instructor and student doing TnG’s in a twin. My instructor won’t do TnG’s in a twin because he says there are too many adjustments to make in a twin and therefore this is likely to happen. He makes all landings full stop, then return to threshhold for next circuit.

    just wondering, if you train yourself to not reconfigure the airplane on the runway, how do you practise tgls then? only fly takeoff flap approaches until you plan a full stop?

    yea if you stay straight… but if you turn everybody knows that there’s a force that’s gonna push you in the other way( don’t know how it’s called in english)… One gear is pushed the other is kept out and there is an underccariage “”collapse””
    hope you understood lol

    shouldn’t it be so that the gear WILL NOT retract if the airplane is settled on it??? That would seem pretty logical, no?

    hahaha thats so truth.. u get used to retract the falps….after the touchdown….even ina full stop landing…because of too many tocuh and goes during your private pilot training…haha i will tried not to..even though im flying a Fixed Gear gear plane :)…thnx for the advise Mr. King.
