    how about GUMPFS
    Gas/Fuel valve
    Undercarriage/Landing gear
    I always do it that way and it works!

    C-GUMPS if you want to be thorough 🙂

    Cowl Flaps/Carb Heat
    Gas=fuel selectors and pumps
    Undercarriage (landing gear)
    Switches (lights)

    It does look like this guy was ‘hot dogg’n it, trying to land on the water then quickly taxing it up onto land. I’ve always wondered if one were to land with the wheels down what would happen. I do believe a better wheel design could prevent knuckle heads like this ‘pilot’.

    This guy was very lucky to live through this. The exact same thing happened here recently in WA. A seaplane company that previously only flew “Float only” planes purchased a new one with “amphibious floats” like the one in video. They kept the same pilot who for years flew “float only” planes. He took off from hard surface with very talkative passengers and later forgot one little thing that he never had to remember before purchase of this plane. In amphibs check list is CRITICAL. Two dead.

    Something that we White Anglo-Saxons aren’t used to…discipline.

  24. acsmashing on August 8th, 2011 8:09 pm

    It takes a lot of discipline to use those checklists at times…
