Ride along our trip from Ohio to Florida, cut short by an engine failure. Our #4 cylinder failed 90 minutes into flight.

04/30/2018 UPDATE!

When I was checked out on the 210 during my first 10 hours I was taught to manage mixture by keeping the EGTs at around 1400 in this aircraft. This has since proved WAY too lean for these cylinders at certain altitudes / throttle settings.

Only many flights later did I figure out on my own that the engine prefers closer to 1330 EGT in this situation. So, in hindsight, I should have enriched the mixture immediately and the problem would have probably gone away. I have since educated myself quite significantly on engine mgmt., and would advocate all pilots do the same.

Here's a great start:

08/21/2018 UPDATE!

This MAY have been all caused by a bad magneto, exacerbated by higher engine temps. Over the last year, running engine as I have described above, we've still had problems with the engine cylinders having consistent CHT values. In addition engine roughness was observed whenever the engine was hotter. Last week the left magneto failed on pre-flight runup. After replacing the magneto the engine is running extremely smooth compared to before! I've been able to run the CHTs much higher now without any roughness.

Pilot Completes Emergency Landing With Family Onboard

A cool-headed amateur pilot successfully completed an emergency landing with his family onboard after a major technical issue.

Though Devin Miller, 33, works in consumer marketing in Texas, his hobby and passion is flying planes.

While flying wife Melanie and their two young children from Atlanta to Houston on September 1, Devin planned to land at their scheduled fuel stop in Mississippi.

However, when Devin began to slow the plane and line up the approach to land, to his shock and horror he realised the performance of the controls were not responding to his inputs.

Engine Out, Deadstick Landing in a Cessna 150

With the engine stopped aircraft is flown to the high key position, spiral to pattern altitude followed by a 180 degree power off accuracy landing. This is what you train for!

I found the following passage below from Bob Reser to be very true, I flew the approach really high even though I left the high key at 1,000ft. I had to slip very aggressively from base all the way through final in addition to 40 degrees of flaps. I believe this is due to the much better glide capability of the aircraft with a stopped prop versus an idle engine which is what you normally would train the maneuver with. There is a wide chasm between simulated emergency and the real shit. Just being aware of that fact will help you.

From Robert Reser's Book:

The Mental Anxiety
A pilot making an actual engine-out approach to a selected area may begin realizing the aircraft could land short. It is almost impossible to convince oneself not to fly a little high or a little fast on an emergency power-off approach. Real-life experiences show it is usual for pilots to do one or the other and often both, staying high and fast.
This is a decision a pilot must have made prior to flight. It is essential to review, study, and consider how one will think when in the engine-out situation. How will the engine out approach affect oneself mentally?
It takes an aware pilot to keep flying a normal directed-course approach in these conditions. Clear understanding of power off and idle-power approach and landing procedures is required. Minimum power landing proficiency and understanding use of
ground-effect helps in the decision not to fly too high or too fast.
Remember; the accident occurs at or after touchdown. Until then, fly your airplane.

Update 1/10/19 - Just got this out of an email form Rob Reser who I respect very much - The cause of accidents; when making emergency off-field landings is commonly blamed on engine failure of any reason yet an accident doesn’t occur until landing and only then if there is damage or injury. This is an unintended consequence of the training to not use idle power approaches. Off-Field spot landings and survival of the landing roll are seldom emphasized, and so initial flight training should be done with idle power at least when an Instructor is on board plus saving lots of time in the traffic pattern.

Cessna Engine Failure and Ditching in Ocean, Filmed From Inside (HD)

This video is a bit of a departure from our normal fare here on Real World Police, but I'm obviously letting this one slide. We will be back to our normal programming shortly, but this unparalleled footage is not to be missed.

On December 11, 2013, about 1522 Hawaiian standard time, a Cessna 208B, N687MA, was destroyed following a loss of engine power and ditching into the Pacific Ocean near Kalaupapa, Hawaii. One passenger was fatally injured, the airline transport pilot and two passengers were seriously injured, and five passengers received minor injuries.

The airplane was operated by Makani Kai Air. The flight departed from the Kalaupapa Airport on the island of Molokai, about 2 minutes prior to the accident, with an intended destination of the Honolulu International Airport on the island of Oahu. 

In a written statement, the pilot reported that shortly after takeoff from runway 05, at an altitude of about 400 feet above ground level, he began a left turn for a downwind departure. Shortly after passing 500 feet AGL, the pilot motioned toward the power lever to reduce power for the climb when he heard a loud bang followed by an immediate loss of engine power. The pilot continued the turn toward land, verified the fuel valves were on, and observed all engine gauges displaying zero. The pilot realized the airplane was not going to make it to land, and rolled the wings level while broadcasting a mayday distress call. Shortly after, the airplane landed within open ocean water in a flat or slightly nose up attitude. 

All the passengers and the pilot exited the airplane through the rear right door, and the airplane remained on the water surface for approximately 25 minutes before it sank. One passenger swam to shore, and United States Coast Guard and Maui Fire and Rescue helicopters recovered the pilot and 7 passengers from the water about 80 minutes after the ditching. 

A couple of minutes of standard-definition footage from this video were disseminated immediately following the event, however this - right here, right now - is the first time that the full-length, full-HD video is being made publicly available.

Engine Failure! Pilot Shares Experience of Emergency Landing from Low Altitude

Brad, an instrument rated private pilot, shares the experience he and his wife had just two weeks after they suffered engine failure in their Cessna 210. Luckily, they escaped without injury and are eager for others to learn from their experience.

Many thanks to Brad and his wife for taking the time to share their story.

ATC Recording: Emergency Landing Due to Engine Failure in Cessna 210 - Pilot Lands SAFELY

In advance of the interview (linked below) with the pilot, I put together the ATC recording and flight path replay to create a visual of the off field landing due to an engine failure. SUBSCRIBE so you don't miss the interview with the pilot to hear his perspective of this incident.

Please watch: Tailwheel Training or FLYING A HELICOPTER (I didn't crash!)?


Emergency Operations - Engine Failure After Takeoff

An engine failure after takeoff is a
serious problem requiring quick action.
The aircraft is low and slow –
an ugly combination leaving little
time to select a suitable landing

In climb, the nose of the aircraft is
quite high – 7-10 degrees nose-up.
The attitude providing best glide
speed is generally several degrees
nose down. When an engine fails
you must rapidly push the nose
down to the attitude that provides
the best glide airspeed. Inside the
cockpit this will feel like a very large
change – It will be a big push from
the climb out attitude, to the bestglide

If you don’t immediately lower the
nose, your airspeed will rapidly deteriorate,
the angle of attack will increase,
and with the added drag
the aircraft will begin to descend at
an increasing rate.

If you continue to hold the nose up
without power, the critical angle of
attack can quickly be exceeded,
and the aircraft will stall.
