    Light plane crashes

    All summer as I check the news on my computer, it seems like every two weeks there's another light plane crash. I guess mathematicily it's bound to happen but it's a shame. As a primary instructor I tried to find, for each student, a scenario that would be real world. In a small single I used to practice stall recoveries next to a small mountain. With room to recover you get a real idea of minimum recovery technique. In a light twin when you lose an engine you need to lower the nose to what looks like level. Max power on the good engine and the other feathered is like 2-300 fpm, nearly level flight. In a jet suppose you lose all three airspeed indicators. Boeing has a section in their manual that address that with pitch, power and even flap settings.

    I was in aviation for 45 years and it's not the normal emergency that you need to be concerned with but the abnormal one.
