Going to get some discussion going!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was just wondering about the new pilots to be, doing training using FS to practice an engine loss and the emergency procedure including finding a field to land in and actually landing which you usually do not do in actual flying and simulation of an engine loss on take off.
And, how many people have tried the 180 degree turn, mostly fatal, to see if you can do it with an engine out, single engine of course.
And have you done it from various altitudes?
The normal procedure with an engine out on take off is to land straight out.
As some comments from "those that know" say that FS is not a learning tool!!!! Interesting that most people not starting off with a 747 right out of the box and would practice on the FS the actual manuevers they do on a RL training flight. Even clearing the area before doing any practicing like stall, turns, altitude changes, turns around a point, or figure s across a road etc.
If a person were to do the whole 1 hr session including the preflight that can be done to a point except checking fuel, oil, would go through the process under the watchfull eye of a CFI, they would develop habits they they would actually use in RL training.
You can even do the panel scan, and traffic scan with the hat switch.
