I am a female flight instructor who flies a corporate 421C. I trained with AST for my initial 421C insurance qualification.
Rick drilled over and over low altitude engine loss and his procedure of ‘stabilize the aircraft’ first.
I left KSVE (4,100 feet MSL) and at 200 feet AGL the right engine begin to fail. The aircraft yawed – manifold and rpm began to drop. I feathered the right engine and worked 0 VSI and stabilized speed at 90 knots. I slowly turned back to airport into dead engine (yes dead engine as turning engine makes the turn) using no rudder. My passenger and I landed safely. I just kept remembering what Rick had taught me over and over during the failure.
