7 Emergencies That Scare All Pilots
In your flying career, you’ll experience challenges and possibly an emergency. Hopefully it’s not one of these…
1) LOW LEVEL WINDSHEAR
You’re on short final and lose 15 knots of airspeed, causing your plane to drop suddenly, just above the ground. If it’s not reported and you don’t look closely at the weather, it’s hard to tell if and when it’ll happen. Keep your airspeed up on short final if you think you’ll encounter windshear.
2) ELECTRICAL FIRES
Electrical fires can quickly spread from behind the panel and into the cabin. If you have to immediately shut off electrical power while in IMC, you’ll find yourself in a pretty challenging situation.
