It's the maneuver no one like to practice, the go-around. Yet last year there were 42 accidents that occurred during attempted go-arounds. Watching this video I want you to remember one thing. Fly the airplane first! If you remember to tell tower you're going around, great. If you remember to maneuver slightly to the right of the runway, fine. However we have to remember to get and keep that airplane flying first!
The approach lighting system is designed for one primary purpose: It helps pilots transition from IMC to a VMC landing when reaching approach minimums. When you think about it, this is quite an impressive accomplishment given that this typically happens in less that 30 seconds starting a 200 feet HAT (for typical ILS or LPV minimums) while flying at speeds in the neighborhood of 100 knots. Here's a short video explaining how the ILS architecture works. http://rodmachado.com?aff=173
What would happen if I didn't execute a proper stall recovery? The airplane breaks the stall but we continue to apply back pressure and we now enter into a secondary stall. Jason shows you what that looks like in today's video.
Good advice from Jason: Have we moved away from stick and rudder flying? What are some ways you're working to challenge or better said humble yourself in aviation? The goal shouldn't be currency. The goal should be proficiency.
