Emergency! Getting It Right When Things Go Wrong

We spend time training for them, but real-world emergencies are rare enough that it’s easy to get complacent. They don’t always happen to “other pilots,” though, and preparation can make a big difference when things don’t go as planned:

  • What if you lose 500 rpm during takeoff, but the engine is running smoothly?
  • What if the ammeter drops to zero during a flight in IMC?
  • What if your left aileron develops a strong vibration in flight?

Our new seminar is full of expert tips on handling those “up here, but wishing you were down there” scenarios. We focus on how to keep abnormal situations from becoming full-blown emergencies, offer advice on keeping critical problems under control, and give our best advice on off-airport landings.

Here's what pilots are saying about our safety seminars

"...a pilot who saw the Takeoffs and Landings seminar last year says that she thinks our advice to "land straight ahead" may have saved her life this past year when she had an engine out. She uses the technique we teach of "spring loading" herself on every takeoff, and so she was able to instantly respond when the engine did fail. Even was able to stay on the runway!"

"A very potent presentation. Left me with a few, but powerful tools that I feel I could stick to in an emergency."

"The best I have been to — this was extremely beneficial."

"Good, fast-moving presentation — very practical with varied examples."

"Very good presentation! The instructor had the audience thinking through the entire evening."
