Trike Engine Failure On Takeoff Emergency Landing Scenarios

 

Paul Hamilton presents three different engine out scenarios on takeoff for trikes. Because it is a long runway and the trike is lightly loaded the altitudes for a turn back to the airport are used. This is not practical for airplanes or lower-performance trikes. Always seek engine out scenarios with a qualified instructor before attempting, trying, practicing or performing any scenario close to the ground. The ground can break or kill you. The ground sudden stop is very bad. Avoid getting close to the ground.
