Summary
228 Max talks with Rob Mark about VFR into IMC Accidents and a free online course available from AOPA’s Air Safety Institute. These are the most common weather accidents, and 90% are fatal. They happen to even very high time pilots, and they’re ten times more likely to occur at night. Pilots need a strategy for when this occurs to them, and they need to learn how to estimate flight visibility.

Summary
225 Max talks with Paul Bertorelli about why Textron purchased Pipistrel. Textron Aviation owns Cessna and Beechcraft, but Textron plans to form a new business segment, Textron eAviation, focused on the development of sustainable aircraft, to manage Pipistrel. Hence, the merger seems less about selling more Pipistrel electric aircraft to flight schools, and more about leveraging their other assets.

Summary
214 Max talks with Rob Mark about the San Diego Learjet Crash in El Cajon, and early clues that this landing wouldn’t succeed. The air ambulance flight crashed in poor weather, after canceling IFR, as required at night to land on a longer runway. A poorly flown traffic pattern at low altitude sealed their fate. Max and Rob asked pilots to think about when they would have diverted, if they were flying.

N880Z, a Learjet 35A, crashed while landing at night at Gillespie Field in El Cajon, north of San Diego. The crash was where the base intersects the final, which is a classic location for stall/spin accidents. The aircraft flew a traffic pattern that was lower and farther east than usual, and they were headed straight for Rattlesnake Mountain, which was a couple hundred feet higher than the aircraft. The aircraft crashed about 0.1 miles from the base of the mountain on Pepper Drive. There were no survivors.

The air ambulance flight originated from John Wayne Airport, which was a short, 18-minute flight to Gillespie. The weather at the time was at VFR minimums and IFR minimums for circling. The weather was 3 mile visibility with mist and a broken layer of clouds at 2,000 feet and an overcast layer at 2,600 feet.

The two-pilot crew flew the RNAV (GPS) 17 approach, which has LP minimums of 1,360 feet, for a straight in landing to runway 17. However runway 17 is more than a 1,000 feet shorter than runway 27R, and when the aircraft was approximately 3 miles north of the airport, they cancelled IFR and requested to land on runway 27R. Circling to runway 27R is not permitted at night when flying IFR, which is why the crew cancelled IFR, so that there were legally permitted to land on 27R.

The aircraft crossed overhead the airport very low at 725 feet, less than 350 feet above the field elevation of 388 feet. The aircraft then climbed to 950 feet in a left traffic pattern to 27R. The aircraft flew a traffic pattern that was farther north and east than their prior circles to runway 27R. This resulted in them flying directly toward Rattlesnake Mountain.

213 Why You Should Join a Type Club - Interview Catherine Cavagnaro

If you have a question you'd like answered on the show, let listeners hear you ask the question, by recording your listener question using your phone.

Summary
213 Max talks with Catherine Cavagnaro about aircraft type clubs and why pilots should join one. There are more than a hundred of them, yet only a fraction of pilots belong to one. Yet they offer the best value proposition in aviation: they’re cheap and they could save your life. Most type clubs offer a newsletter or magazine and many have a web site loaded with aircraft details. 

As I wrote in a blog article for AOPA eight years ago, "Give yourself an early Christmas present: Join the type club for the aircraft you fly most frequently. But don’t just write a check; become an active participant. Whether you own or rent, you’re bound to learn more about the intricacies of that aircraft model. And if your family is lucky, what you learn as a type club member may someday save your life…and possibly their lives too."

Summary
206 Max talks about airplane accidents caused by helicopter vortices. Pilots should exercise extreme caution near helicopters, especially at low altitudes. Although these kinds of accidents aren’t really common, there is about one accident per year. It appears helicopters may churn up air in all directions, and that the location of their wakes may not be quite as predictable of those from airplanes.

Summary
203 Max talks about the different ways your aircraft can get misfueled, and the steps you should take every time you get fuel, to ensure you don’t get misfueled. A Baron 58P that recently crashed at Palo Alto airport, appears to have been misfueled. Sumping the fuel doesn’t guarantee you’ll catch a misfuelling. Also a 50/50 mix of 100LL and Jet looks the same as 100LL.

Summary
199 Max talks about the accident rate, common mistakes, and offers tips for flying IFR circling approaches. ICAO says circling approaches have 25 times the risk of a straight-in approach with vertical guidance. The size of the protected circling area changed in 2013. In the circling area, TERP requires a 25° bank angle. Pilots often fly a downwind that’s too close and overshoot the base to final turn.

Summary
197 This is a follow up to #196 on Mountain Flying. Most aircraft need to be leaned prior to takeoff in high density altitude. Turbocharged aircraft and older SR20s don’t need leaning. Max discusses many methods of leaning before takeoff. Always start with your POH to see what method it recommends. If it doesn’t recommend a specific method, then you may want to use one of the methods discussed here.

192 Avoiding Takeoff Emergencies with Flying Magazine’s Rob Mark

Your Cirrus Specialist. Call me if you're thinking of buying a new Cirrus SR20 or SR22. Call 1-650-967-2500 for Cirrus purchase and training assistance, or to take my online seminar: So You Want to Fly or Buy a Cirrus.

If you have a question you'd like answered on the show, let listeners hear you ask the question, by recording your listener question using your phone.

Summary
192 Max talks with Flying Magazine’s Rob Mark about minimizing takeoff risks. Per the NTSB, 26% of fatalities occur during takeoff, so pilots need to plan for what they’ll do if things don’t go well during the takeoff. Engine failure can occur, but a partial power loss is three times more likely than a complete engine failure. Rob also shares a long list of tips for avoiding takeoff emergencies.

Rob's Tips for Avoiding Takeoff Emergencies
• Don’t simply read the before-takeoff checklist; make sure you’ve accomplished the required tasks.
• Recheck that the tank chosen for takeoff contains sufficient fuel.
• Check that the backup fuel pump is on if the aircraft requires it for takeoff.
• Recheck that takeoff flaps are properly set.
• How many inches of manifold pressure and/or what rpm should the engine deliver during the takeoff roll?
• Don’t accept an intersection departure that leaves valuable runway behind you.
• Note the distance (in feet) of your upcoming ground roll.
• Highlight the intersection where the aircraft should break ground.
• If you’re not airborne by the highlighted spot, do you have enough remaining runway to stop?
• Have you surveyed the area off the departure end of the runway for potential landing spots?
• If you’ve never practiced making a 180-degree turn back after a loss of power, don’t make today the day to try one.
• If you’re forced into an off-airport landing, your job is to protect the people on board—the airplane’s insured.

If you have a question you'd like answered on the show, let listeners hear you ask the question, by recording your listener question using your phone.

Summary
188 Max talks with pilot Eric Gundersen, who created a video that shows some of the factors that led to a midair collision between a Cirrus SR22 and a Metroliner at Centennial airport in Colorado. The factors identified could apply to any aircraft type and serve as a cautionary tale for all pilots. Here’s a summary of Max’s 9 Lessons Pilots can Learn from the Cirrus midair plus a tenth lesson for Cirrus pilots:

  1. Fly the correct pattern speeds
  2. Faster speeds require steeper bank angles
  3. Autopilots don’t bank steeply enough for use in the pattern
  4. Get comfortable with 30 degree banks in the pattern
  5. Don’t overshoot the final, but if you do, consider going around.
  6. Refer to a traffic system to identify pattern traffic
  7. If in doubt, start your turn early
  8. Use G1000 and Perspective Track Vectors to eliminate overshoot
  9. Don’t Get Distracted
  10. Bring a parachute

Summary
187 Max talks with Dr. Greg Van about how hearing loss affects people and the many ways that pilots and others can permanently damage their hearing. Hearing loss can also lead to depression, insomnia and high blood pressure. Exposure to noise above 85 dBA causes damage. Even driving with the window down exceeds that level. Pilots and ramp workers need to protect their hearing even when walking around.

If you have a question you'd like answered on the show, let listeners hear you ask the question, by recording your listener question using your phone.

Summary
183 Max talks about the Garmin G3000 and G5000 Glass Cockpits and the many aircraft they’re in from the F-5 fighter jet to the Cirrus Vision Jet. He also discusses differences from the G1000 and Perspective, and why the G3000 and G5000 are easier to use. He also talks about his new G3000 and G5000 book. Later, he interviews Nick Sinopoli, inventor of the ICARUS Devices Smart Hood for IFR training.

Garmin G3000 and G5000 Glass Cockpit
What do some fighter jets, light business jets, turboprops and even Joby Aviation’s eVTOL all have in common? They all use, or plan to use, the Garmin G3000 or G5000 glass cockpit! The Garmin G3000 and G5000 are used in twenty-three aircraft models, and manufacturers have announced plans to use them in a half dozen other models. Now there’s a new source of information for pilots flying these aircraft: Max Trescott's G3000 and G5000 Glass Cockpit Handbook!

Max Trescott, the 2008 National Flight Instructor of the Year, uses a narrative approach to explaining the G3000 and G5000 from a pilot’s perspective in ways that both beginners and experts can understand. He starts by describing the hardware, including the displays and touchscreen controllers, and then describes how to use each function, including the radios, programming flight plans and instrument approaches, and using the autopilot and electronic checklists. He also teaches the data link weather products available through SiriusXM, ADS-B FIS-B weather, and Garmin Connext Weather. Throughout the book, you’ll find practical tips, gleaned from the industry’s most experienced glass cockpit instructors, on how to use different features. Pilots may want to keep a copy of the book in the cockpit and use the book’s detailed Index, so they can quickly look up how to use a feature. The book is 312 pages and includes 367 color images.

Some of the G3000/G5000-equipped aircraft covered in the book include:
• Cessna Citation M2, CJ3+, Sovereign+, Latitude, Longitude, Denali, and 10+
• Cirrus SF50 Vision Jet
• Daher TBM 930 and TBM 940
• Embraer Phenom EV100 and 300E
• Honda HA-420 HondaJet
• Learjet 70, 75, and 75 Liberty
• Piper M600 and M600 SLS
• retrofitted Cessna Citation Excel and XLS
• retrofitted Beechjet 400A and Hawker 400XP
• retrofitted TacAir F-5 fighter jets

154 Max talks about a Las Vegas Class B violation by a pilot who ignored ATC instructions to exit the Bravo. The pilot whined and made excuses rather than comply with ATC. Max relates the incident to the FAA’s five Hazardous Attitudes and adds a sixth attitude, loss of face, which has been proposed by some researchers. He explains that any of us can hold any of the attitudes in a given situation.

It is primarily for use in an emergency, and it can be triggered by pushing a single button, or it can trigger itself if the pilot doesn’t respond to a series of system prompts, such as when a pilot is hypoxic or incapacitated. It relies on the Garmin autopilot for engine management.

Summary
125 Max discusses the NTSB preliminary report on the B-17 crash. And we talk about propeller safety and a number of accidents in which people were killed or dismembered by a propeller. Propeller accidents are more common than you might think, and many happen at night when a spinning prop is almost impossible to see. NEVER let anyone in or out of a plane while the engine is still running.
