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?
AOPA’s safety seminar on January 12th in Sacramento is full of expert tips on handling those “up here, but wishing you were down there” scenarios.
