Our Emergency Engine Loss Course is included as an integral part of our Loss of Control Training. We offer loss of engine emergency reaction training for Twin Cessnas (all models), Piper Navajos (all models), Senecas, Aztecs, and Beechcraft models (including Duchess and Barons). You will be trained for single engine failure after takeoff including day and night procedures. The training shows you how to save your aircraft and you from loss of control. We will teach you how to react by establishing and maintaining control, initiating safe turns back to the airport or other area for safe landing, and then landing. After reviewing and drilling the method we teach, some students comment “I’ve never thought to do that”. The sim work is difficult. After all, we are recreating an intensely stressful event (engine loss) over and over. Some find it exhausting. We’re ok with that, as long as you come out of the training a safer pilot. Our job is to give you the personal satisfaction that you can handle your aircraft if either engine fails.
Emergency engine loss response training is part of a two day course. With adequate breaks, some students are able to work three straight hours in the motion sim. The course is demanding, but you will understand the safe way to handle your twin and get back to an airport. If you are instrument rated, the course will work around your instrument training. If you are not instrument rated, we strongly suggest that that you work with one of our instrument instructors to bring your instrument flying to a safe operating level. We would like for you to be able to fly single engine instruments in a multi engine aircraft.
