SPC #005-Coyote Ugly

      2 Comments on SPC #005-Coyote Ugly

Another episode in the cast is released!  In Episode 5 I start to include much more in cockpit audio, by popular demand.  This makes the cast a bit longer than usual, so I hope you don’t mind.  We cover several lessons, up to but not including my Phase 1 Stage Check.

There’s a couple of interesting tidbits, and some good information on some changes in my training…or at least my trainer.  As for the title, you’ll have to listen to find out.

I mentioned an accident that happened here locally in this episode, and promised to post a link to the NTSB preliminary report.  The fatal crash referenced is here.  I mentioned a previous accident from which the student pilot and CFI walked away.  That link is here.

Thanks for listening.  Please leave feedback or click “contact” in the upper right corner of this page to send me an email.

    observed smoke trailing from the airplane
    Probable cause: The pilot’s failure to maintain an adequate airspeed during climb out resulting in an aerodynamic stall/spin.

    “Investigators were unable to determine the cause or origin of the reported “smoke” during departure.”
