How well do you handle pressure?

A couple of local pilots did pretty well when faced with one of the worst scenarios a pilot can face - engine failure in a single-engine plane.

Under an immediate threat or problem, I'm great.
In a long, drawn out,,, continuing situation, I'm not so good.

I'm kinda the same. At first I think I can handle it pretty well but if it drags on too long I'm likely to blow a 50 amp fuse.

Looked like a nice off-airport landing to me. Unsure of the type of airplane; I'm unfamiliar with the dual-handled center stick setup. I suspect it's a LSA introduced after I quit flying.

I think there's more pressure in an engine-out situation in a twin than in a single. In a single, you know you're gonna land. In a twin, you may or may not make it back to an airport.

Just remember the old adage: any landing you walk away from is a good landing!

I know what you mean. I think a lot of guys are like that. Give us a situation that we can fix or at least understand, we're good, but keep piling it on, and our weaknesses start to get exposed.

The plane is a Jabiru - LSA as you say. I saw the aftermath of the landing and it was a bit of a wreck. The field was very rough and they went through a barbed-wire fence.

Pilot did a nice job of picking his spot early and then bleeding off altitude and setting up the landing. They walked away from it but a lot of people wouldn't have been as lucky if he pilot was less experienced.

I guess I handle most forms of pressure fairly well. Sometimes is doesn't even feel like pressure. I just see it as an obstacle to overcome and I've been doing it so long I kind of expect stuff to happen.

It's the sudden shocks and abrupt changes in things that can get to me. I tend to be very big picture oriented so sometimes I don't see the small stuff coming until it's on top of me. That kind of pressure give me trouble.

Airplanes can be replaced. People can't. I thought the pilot (instructor, maybe, since he was in the right seat?) was pretty cool, calm and collected. He did himself a favor by getting the prop stopped during the glide. A windmilling prop takes the drag characteristics of a solid disc the diameter of the propeller. By stopping the prop, he greatly extended his ability to glide farther.

The extended range of a stopped prop is not worth stalling the plane to get it stopped. Maybe the engine seized up on him.

Actually, the plane looks a lot better than I first thought. Here's a picture. It may even fly again?

I'm still here... ;)...

I did a lot of ocean sailing/racing on bigger boats..... when shiite goes down it's usually just after a watch,after you climbed out of your wet gear, it's pitch black outside.... and you have rush back out on deck to run up the front and haul a kite it after a halyard broke.. and it's trailing in the sea... the boat had just done a "hand brake turn" and it's on it's ear.... water coming over the rails....

you get one shot to recover/do it right.... or more shiite happens....

sometimes you react to "instant" pressure through training and adrenalin... and a will to survive....

if you had lot's of time to dwell on such a situation happening at some point in the future....you'd wonder why you were even out there... ;)

A friend of mine lost the prop on a single engine plane 17 miles from the airport (the investigation concluded that the nut had been over-torqued), he had enough altitude and the airplane type that he glided the plane back to the airport... constantly looking for a place to land...

When he radioed in, the towers response was for him to restart the engine...

Here's a good one to watch. Kevin Eldredge, Race #42, in qualifying and going for the record of 412 mph in the Sport Class. He has a twin turbo Lycoming IO-720 that developed an oil system failure and it over speeded the prop. He declared a Mayday and landed Relentless, he did a great job getting back on the ground quickly, as fire is a major concern.
