Flight maneuver training including slow flight, power-on and power-off stalls, steep turns, emergency procedures, power-off (short approach) landing, forward-slip to a landing, go-around and touch & go landings. I ran out of tape so I didn’t get the last landing that included a turning slip.

Cessna lands on highway Interstate 95

October 23, 2009

This is a news report of a recent emergency landing (and take-off, after repairs) of a Cessna on the Interstate 95 stretch not far from me. Great video of the aircraft taking off, right at the DOT camera! That’s not often seen, so it’s here for your viewing enjoyment.

As usual, the local news has enough inaccuracies to make this somewhat amusing. Earlier reports stated that an Essna aircraft had to take off from the highway, then it noted that the small aircraft’s engines were running at full power to make the take off. A “mere 600 yards” available for taking off! The Cessna could make three take-offs with that much length, but clearly the reporter is not a pilot. This report shows the “malfunctioned fuel cylinder” briefly, which I always thought was an engine cylinder. The DOT worker adds a bit of local entertainment, certainly, “By golly, I’ll tell you what!”

The real reason flight attendants are onboard…

July 25, 2009

Just a series of video clips I put together to show the real reason flight attendants are on board…
Lots of people love to make the argument that flight attendants, despite the months of emergency training they go through, just serve beverages. What passengers don’t see is the hour before and after a flight doing security checks, checking emergency equipment, and reveiwing emergency procedures. Not only that, they’re REQUIRED by every goverment aviation organization to be on board for SAFETY. I can guaranty you, if the government didn’t require them to be on board FOR YOUR SAFETY, F/As would be axed completely in coach on domestic flights and on regional jets. They’re required to be there not to serve drinks but for safety.

Only catastrophic incidents like AF358 and US1549 make the news. Every time a flight attendant gives first aid, restarts a heart with a defibrillator, or evacuates an aircraft doesn’t make the news. Full blown emergency evacuations occur in the USA, on average, once a week. Airlines don’t have a certain quota of emergencies they have to have occur every year. The fact is an emergency could occur on any flight and flight attendant’s are constantly preparing for that and willing to risk their life to save you. F/As are no longer staffed based upon service, most US Airlines have cut their F/A staffing levels to the bare minimum FAA SAFETY level of 1 flight attendant per 50 passengers.

You wonder why the service sucks? Its because the flight attendant to passenger ratio is based upon the number of F/As it takes to get everyone out of a plane in 90 seconds or handle a wide range of other emergencies, not how quickly it takes them to get you a can of Coke.

Bottom line, any arrogant business passenger can put any spin they like on it but F/As are required by the FAA to be on board for safety.

Thank you to Markhk for the American 747 training clip.

Flight 1549 Heroes – Capt. Sullenberger, Flight Crew & First Responders

February 13, 2009

This is a Genuine G-Shot prepared in tribute to a true hero: Captain “Sully” Sullenberger, the Airbus 320 pilot who made the remarkable emergency miracle water landing on January 15,2009, of US Airway Flight 1549 on New York’s Hudson River in New York City and is posted today on Captain Sullenberger’s Birthday, Jan. 23, 2009.

I hope to meet you tomorrow when the City Council and Danville Mayor Newell Arnerich honors you as a home-town hero and present to you a special video DVD presentation in honor of all the Heroes of the Miracle of USA Airways Flight 1549, your well disciplined, trained, experienced and courageous Flight crew and all the “first responders”, public safety and Joe-citizen alike, as deep down we are all heroes and we know one when we see one.

Experience does indeed count, I am about the same age as Capt. Sully, with 27 years experience as a San Francisco 911 police, fire and medical dispatchers with the police department, City and County of SF Department of Emergency Management, and previous experience in public service as Mayor and Councilman of the City of San Bruno. I can also attest to the value of training, discipline and experience and the need to keep a cool head as so many lives depends upon our every move when seconds really do count and people must do the right thing.

Well done Captain Sully and all the heroes of Flight 1549 — We all have reason to be proud of you as a real American hero.

NEW YORK (AP) — A cool-headed pilot maneuvered his crippled jetliner over New York City and ditched it in the frigid Hudson River on Thursday; all 155 on board were pulled to safety as the plane slowly sank. It was, as New York Governor Patterson said, “a miracle on the Hudson.”

One victim suffered two broken legs, a paramedic said, but there were no other reports of serious injuries, just lots of wet socks, Capt. Sully walked the entire length of the sinking aircraft twice to make sures all passengers had safely exited the plane.

US Airways Flight 1549, an Airbus A320 bound for Charlotte, N.C., struck a flock of birds after takeoff just minutes earlier at LaGuardia Airport, apparently disabling both engines.

The pilot, identified as Chesley B. “Sully” Sullenberger III of Danville, Calif., “was phenomenal,” passenger Joe Hart said. “He landed it — I tell you what, the impact wasn’t a whole lot more than a rear-end (collision). It threw you into the seat ahead of you.”

“Both engines cut out and he actually floated it into the river,” he said.

No doubt due to his 40 years experience as a glider pilot.

Capt. Sully thank you for a job well done!
