Yes, SimpleFlight Radio is still here. We took an extended break, but not without missing all of you. Some of you have found me with my YouTube channel, PF Flying. If you checked it out, you saw that I had a catastrophic engine failure at about 1500 ft AGL. When it happened, I was completely caught off guard, but the surprises didn't stop there.
With over 2300 hours, I had always feared an engine out. I didn't think about it often, but if someone was to ask, it would've been in my top 3 list of things I didn't want to experience. I wondered how I would handle it. Would I be frozen by fear and panic? That's when surprise #2 hit me. I felt no fear, I had no indecision, and I had complete confidence I was going to be OK.
So join us in our first episode for 2022, with Brandon and myself doing a completely unscripted hangar talk session about what happened, how it happened, and what came after the dead stick landing. I learned a lot about myself and more specifically, how my brain was the key to a successful outcome. I believe the same can happen for you, so encourage you to listen and learn about how to increase your chances for success when facing an emergency.
We'd love to hear your thoughts and questions. Please share them with the rest of the SimpleFlight Facebook and Instagram community @simpleflightradio
