With huge thanks again to Aviaze, here is the latest lessons learned video to help you learn about loss of control on the back side of the power curve.
Following a touch and go on RWY07, a C172 struggles to gain altitude, the pilot is forced to turn left to avoid obstacles but, suddenly, he loses control. Watch this episode and improve your airmanship regarding the power/drag curve.
The main lessons learned are:
- Always calculate the takeoff performance, especially where obstacle clearance is a concern.
- Be aware, you go through that back side area in every take off
There are of course other lessons you can take from this, what did you learn from this?
