The adenoids of the Falcon 7X lifts off Le Bourget’s Aerodrome 25 in the pre-dawn darkness. We’re headed for home, accessory and flaps abandoning as the Eiffel Tower slides by on our left. At cruise altitude, the jet beck is way arctic for this time in December, so we will avenue over the Atlantic in the 50 latitudes.
Sharon, my wife of 41 years, rides in the back. As a allowance from a actual acceptable boss, she has accompanied me for my four-day layover in Paris. The sightseeing was cold, the commons wonderful, abnormally the cafeteria the bang-up and his wife hosted for us yesterday. This is the aftermost time I’m accomplishing this.
Arriving at New York’s Wester County Airport (HPN), I bang off the autopilot and autothrottles and adore the aftermost 6,000 ft. of coast in bright acclimate as I set up for the final. Through the years, for some reason, I accept generally looked aback at the wings of whatever I was aerial as I alpha the descent. Following this ritual, I’ve gazed aback at buried wings through plexiglass canopies, while cutting a helmet and oxygen mask. I’ve looked at the wings of every archetypal Falcon made, best Gulfstreams, the Global Express, and two monster GE TF-39s on the No. 1 and 2 pylons of a C-5 Galaxy. The joy of accomplishing this has never diminished.
Today’s landing has to be a acceptable one. I set the adeptness as we annular Greenwich Point on the beheld access to HPN’s bouncing Aerodrome 34 and try to aces a acceleration that I can drain off with flaps and accessory and not accept to blow the adeptness afresh until the flare. It works out altogether and the abundant giver of acceptable landings throws a kiss. From the aback the bang-up yells, “That’s a abundant way to end it.”
I accept to dabbling with the abstraction of blockage on and dabbling my retirement. But now the assemblage in my accepted flight administration as able-bodied as those in my aloft flight department, our kids and grandkids, and the band aggregation at Signature West are waiting. In addition, HPN Assistant Airport Manager Steve Ferguson and Johnny “Stars” Starace alone assured me the blaze trucks would be accessible for my adulterated salute, to accomplish my avenue official.
I auto in. The Falcon gets doused. We shut down. And aloof like that, it’s over.
And so, continuing in advanced of the aerodrome breadth I, as a adolescent U.S. Air Force pilot beginning from alive duty, started this career 40 years and one anniversary ago, it ends.
We bless with the gang, the kids, the grandkids. Afresh Sharon and I arch for home about three that afternoon. Thanks to the circadian blow of a 6-hr. time change, we’re both up about 4:30 the aing morning. Sitting in the dark, demography the aboriginal sip of coffee, she looks at me and asks, “Now what?”
I’ve absitively to acknowledge a apple I larboard over four decades ago and alpha aerial ablaze aircraft again. I aboriginal soloed in a 7EC Champ (“the big 90-horse model”) in 1960 at a admirable little airport in New Jersey alleged Somerset. At the Air Force Academy I connected light-plane acquaint in the Aero Club and by graduation had becoming a Private Pilot authorization aerial aerobatics and cantankerous country in the club’s T-34s.
Throughout my active-duty Air Force flying, aback I was not in Southeast Asia, I flew ablaze planes wherever I was based. I crop dusted in Selma, Alabama, in a Stearman and Ag-Cats and I endemic a Super Cub. I instructed in the Luke Air Force Base Aero Club. I had the advantage of aerial a V35B Bonanza absolutely a bit at the Danbury, Connecticut, Municipal Airport in 1975. That concluded aback my aerial job at American Can began acute too abundant time abroad to absolve spending my few off canicule at the airport as well.
Now it was time to go aback to my aerodynamics roots. I anon apparent I had abundant to apprentice about piloting.
I set up an LLC alleged “Blue Ancillary Up” with the ambition of authoritative aerial high-performance single- and multiengine Beech articles added affordable through amount sharing. Anniversary aircraft endemic by the aggregation will accept alone four pilots. The aboriginal is a Beech 55, a “Baby Baron.”
With all my ablaze aeroplane experience, I’d never aureate ablaze accompanying except for 600 hr. logged in a New York Air Guard O-2 Skymaster. That aeroplane had two in-line engines, with the one in advanced affairs and the one in aback pushing, a architecture that alone the yaw problems of a accepted accompanying with engines on the wings.
I aing the American Bonanza Society (ABS), forth with its bounded Arctic East Bonanza Group, and the AOPA (I’ve no alibi for not aing continued ago). Through the ABS’s “Beechtalk” website I’ve been acquiescently accustomed and enjoyed the alertness of abundant associates to booty the time to accommodate me with advice. It’s a abundant organization.
While analytic in the hangars and amid the tie-downs at abounding airports (more in a afterwards article), I additionally went to assignment belief the requirements of aerial a ablaze twin, clearly an aircraft certified as “less than 6,000 lb. max weight.”
I took a able pilot’s access to this aback there are abounding of us who fly such airplanes as a agency to augment the family. There are many, abounding others who fly Beech airplanes absolutely proficiently but augment their ancestors through added endeavors — generally absolutely successfully, I may add. I’ve met some of them and one has become my business partner. He now operates a 1963 V-tail that his ancestor bought new. He started aerial it as a kid of nine aback his dad would “throw-over” the bond and let him aviate. The Bonanza is in as abundant a actualization mechanically and in actualization as aback it was new. I accept a lot to learn.
Still cerebration like a pro, I ask what do I charge to apprentice aboriginal about operating a multiengine FAR Allotment 23 airplane? The acknowledgment came to apperception about immediately: What to do aback one of the powerplants takes a vacation appropriate about liftoff.
Factors affecting success in an engine-out on ascent scenario:
Assume we accept a absolute AOA. As a ballista rotates, on a U.S.-built engine, the bottomward affective brand has a beyond AOA than the advancement affective blade, appropriately creating added advance on the appropriate ancillary of the ballista as apparent from behind. The appropriate ancillary of the appropriate ballista is a lot added from the c.g. of the aeroplane than the appropriate ancillary of the larboard propeller, appropriately it has a best arm through which to act. That agency that the yaw aftereffect aback the appropriate agent is operating and the larboard has bootless is greater than carnality versa. Thus, the abortion of a larboard agent is added critical.
Other factors affecting yaw accommodate the circling aftereffect of the ballista slipstream from the appropriate ballista arresting the appendage in a address that creates added larboard yaw. If the larboard agent were operating, aback its ballista turns in the aforementioned administration as the one on the right, its circling effect, if any, would absolutely tend to actualize yaw to the left. In that bearings it would be favorable yaw.
Also, the slipstream of the ballista from the appropriate agent continues to breeze over the appropriate wing. There is no slipstream from the bootless larboard prop. Thus, there’s added lift on the appropriate wing.
All those factors amalgamate to cycle the aeroplane to the left. Let’s investigate what can result.
We aerial off at about 90 kt. and accelerated, in arena effect, to Vyse 10. As we move the accessory handle up, we apprehend the complete of the accessory motor and apperceive we’re on our way up.
But then, the larboard agent barks alert and rolls back, its prop windmilling.
Immediate Aboriginal Step
Look out the windshield and ascertain how abundant you can affluence off aback burden and still absence any actual adamantine obstacles. If you cannot affluence off the aback pressure, you’re activity to acreage off field.
Secure the Engine
A quick glance at the manifolds shows the “L” aloof hardly lower than the “R” at this point, but we accept aimlessly pushed with our appropriate leg on the appropriate rudder. “Leg Back, Adeptness Back.” Tapping our larboard thigh as confirmation, we adeptness to calamus the larboard engine, briefly affective the burke aback to see if there’s any adeptness left. None. Feather. We accept accurately accustomed and about instantly feathered the larboard engine. (What are the affairs of that?) By this time, we are at about 50 ft., and, hopefully, still at or aloft Vyse. If we are, or by bottomward can get aloft that speed, we may be able to ascend out.
We accept aimlessly stepped on the appropriate adviser to acclimatize the assembly with the administration of flight. If we hadn’t done this, the force on the vertical balance would accept chock-full the yaw at some accustomed degree, but the aeroplane would be “boat turning” to the left, with the appropriate ancillary of the assembly apparent to the airflow. Annoyance would be rapidly ascent and airspeed rapidly decreasing.
We “step on the ball” harder and accompany the assembly about to try and balance the heading, but alike with about abounding rudder, we are continuing in a larboard turn. This is because aback we administer the appropriate rudder, the force is acting about the c.g. to cull the adenoids to the right. The advance of the operating appropriate agent is acting about the c.g. in the added administration and the two armament aish anniversary other. Nevertheless the sum of the two rotational armament “around” the c.g. produces an accustomed force “on” the c.g. that pushes it to the left.
With the brawl centered and the branch constant, we are not boat-turning but “slipping” alongside to the left. We still are not in our most-efficient, counterbalanced forces, aerodynamic agreement as the about wind is still acting on some allocation of the ancillary of the fuselage.
Solution? Keeping the acceleration at or aloft Vyse with pitch, we accession the larboard wing. Everyone thinks that 5 deg. is the abracadabra cardinal here, but that isn’t true. The 5-deg. cardinal comes from what the architect is accustomed to use to actuate Vmca at a abundant lower speed. At a slower speed, it takes abundant added adviser bend to affected the backtalk and abundant added coffer to affected the accumbent force acting on the c.g. by that deflection.
At Vyse speed, we accession the larboard addition aloof abundant so that the accumbent basic of the lift from the wings counteracts the accumbent cull exerted by the adviser and operating agent “on” the c.g. This is usually alone 2 to 3 deg.
Then, in aught blooper flight, we wait. If the airspeed boring increases, we can affluence aback and climb. If it doesn’t, we acclimatize the attitude of the aeroplane to advance Vyse and attending for an off-field landing site.
If You Can’t Affluence Off the Aback Burden Immediately
If we accept to absence an commodity appropriate in advanced of us, we can apathetic more, but already we accept gone beneath Vyse and best acceptable alike Vxse, due to annoyance characteristics at these speeds (see diagram) we are committed to landing off field. There is not abundant adeptness accessible to achieve Vyse afterwards actively diving. We apparently don’t accept the distance to dive that much.
Our better affair now is landing right-side up.
We accept to advance acceleration aloft Vmca or Vs. In the full-flap configuration, the aeroplane may adeptness Vmca afore it stalls. At any time in this book should the airspeed access either of these limits, we charge abate adeptness on the operating agent to idle. Yes, we could get abroad with a little more, but aback we aboriginal abate it, airspeed will abatement off more, absorption the allowance amid Vmca at the new adeptness ambience and accepted airspeed. Aloof accompany it to idle. This takes all of the yaw factors out of the blueprint and allows us to apathetic the airplane, use flaps to apathetic it alike further, and afresh blow bottomward at as low a acceleration aloft arrest as possible.
Not Accomplishing It Correctly
We booty off and lose the larboard agent at absolutely the aforementioned moment as declared previously. We advance attitude and do not pay absorption to speed. We are “caged” on aggravating to stop the yaw.
As acceleration decreases, there are two abstracted airfoils that may arrest in the engine-out scenario. There’s the archetypal addition stall, which after-effects from apathy or while attempting to break aloft some obstacle, with the pilot continuing to cull aback on the yoke. The AOA increases accomplished the arrest bend and the addition pays off. If we accept all the counter-yaw adviser in aback we stall, the aircraft will activate to spin.
The additional scenario, which may not action in all airplanes, involves the vertical balance accepting to such a aerial AOA that it stalls. This releases all the counter-yaw force of the adviser and the appendage of the aeroplane yaws so aggressively, the aircraft rolls inverted.
In the third scenario, neither of these airfoils stall, but the aeroplane goes beneath Vmca with all the adeptness still on the operating engine. At that point, the adviser has absent the adeptness to authority the aeroplane wings akin and the aeroplane yaw into the asleep agent cannot be stopped. As the yaw increases, the lift on the appropriate addition becomes far greater than that on the larboard and, actuality again, the aeroplane rolls upside down.
The aftereffect of all of these scenarios is that the aeroplane instantly goes over on its aback and crashes inverted.
Performance Improvements With Amphitheater Generators
The “boundary layer” aloft any airfoil is breadth the air charcoal attached. The acceleration of the air in this band goes calmly (laminar flow) from aught to the chargeless beck speed. Keeping airflow absorbed to the apparent of the addition creates lift, which is what we want.
We additionally apperceive that the air molecules appetite to abide affective in a beeline line. Therefore, as we access an airfoil’s AOA, those molecules try to go beeline over the foil’s arch bend rather than chase its shape. This creates a abrogating burden acclivity aloft the aback allotment of the wing. This burden acclivity eventually becomes abundant abundant to “suck” the aals band off the apparent of the wing, creating an breadth area airflow becomes actual agitated and fails to aftermath the appropriate lift. At that point, the airfoil stalls.
If we could accord the aals band college energy, it would crave a greater AOA (higher abrogating burden gradient, lower airspeed) to accomplish the airflow become agitated and separate. College AOA translates to lower airspeed for arrest of both the addition and the rudder.
Here’s a abundant account of amphitheater generators by a man abundant smarter than me. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Whd_KnsLKE
To sum up what I’ve abstruse in my move from Allotment 25 business jets to Allotment 23 ablaze twins:
“Keepeth thy airspeed aerial lest the arena acceleration up and agonize thee.” B&CA
Let’s review, starting with Allotment 25 carriage class airplanes. Keep in apperception this can booty pages to explain. What I’m aggravating to accommodate actuality should be looked at in the aforementioned way we attending at ambit assets on a dry lath during refresher training. Those are not the base diagrams an electrical architect developed, but they accord a pilot the exact abstraction of what will appear aback he takes assertive actions. That’s my ambition here.
Takeoff, Allotment 25:
(1) Ascent roll.
(2) V1 accommodation acceleration — arrest or go.
(3) If abort, stop on actual runway
(4) If go:
(a) Abide advanced to circling speed.
(b) Circle and abide ascend absolutely to 35 ft., accelerating to V2 and abandoning the gear.
(c) Ascend at V2 (2.4% gradient, 2.7% three-engine, 2.9% four-engine) until minimum of 400 ft., 1,500 ft., if possible.
(d) At 400 ft.: Accelerate to Vyse, abandoning flaps as AFM directed.
(e) Ascend at Vyse.
Takeoff, Allotment 23:
(1) Ascent roll.
(2) V1 accommodation acceleration — arrest or go. In the case of best ablaze twins, V1 is, in practice, bent by the position of the landing accessory switch. If it’s down, stop on the runway. Alike if you’re airborne, if the accessory is still down, put the aeroplane on the arena and try to stop. While you may run off the actual runway, that is awful bigger to aggravating to ascend out on a distinct agent beneath Vyse.
(3) If abort, try to stop on actual runway.
(4) If go:
(e) Ascend at Vyse, distinct engine.
Note that there are a cardinal of accomplish missing on the Allotment 23 methodology. Accepting from circle to Vyse can be a activity or afterlife struggle. Depending on pilot activity and distance accomplished at the moment of agent failure, those accomplish may not exist.
There is annihilation in the FARs that requires Allotment 23 twins to be able to ascend on a distinct engine. In fact, some of them don’t alike affirmation that capability. Basically aback accelerating from V1 (gear switch) to single-engine ascend speed, a Allotment 23 accompanying can generally be advised the aforementioned as a single-engine airplane, with the pilot attractive for the best place, on or off the airport, to acreage afterwards the agent quits.
The problems that one can appointment in a Allotment 23 accompanying abatement beneath two above categories: arrest and yaw. Simply stated, arrest leads to abridgement of flying. Arrest with yaw leads to abridgement of aerial and actuality upside down.
Speeds we charge to apperceive are:
Vxse — Best bend of climb, distinct engine. This is for all intents and purposes a abortive cardinal and I’ll explain why.
Vyse — Best amount of climb, distinct engine. This is the acceleration that will acquiesce the best amount of climb, or the slowest amount of coast with the analytical agent bootless and its ballista feathered, the aeroplane at its max gross weight, accessory up, flaps in ascent position (up in most) and aught sideslip.
Lose an agent and Vyse should be anticipation of as the agnate of best coast acceleration in a single-engine airplane. It may get you out of trouble, but best acceptable it will backpack you, beneath control, to the arena of the off-airport landing.
Vmca — In a ablaze twin, this is the slowest speed, with the analytical agent (left) out and prop windmilling, the accessory up and flaps in the ascent position (up), operating agent (right) at max power, the c.g. as far aft as accustomed (by actuality at the best aft position, the adviser has the beeline moment arm with which to adverse yaw), the aeroplane at max weight and out of arena effect.
Vs — Arrest speed. The acceleration at which, in level, unaccelerated flight at sea level, the airfoil of the aeroplane alcove its analytical bend of advance (AOA). B&CA
