Topic: Getting the best glide you can when you need it most
On Tuesday, April 25, 2023 at 19:00 Eastern Daylight Time (16:00 PDT; 17:00 MDT; 18:00 CDT; 13:00 HST; 15:00 AKDT; 16:00 Arizona; 23:00 GMT)


A study of system and component failure accidents reveals that a significant number of fatal accidents result from unsuccessful forced landing attempts. Improved pilot knowledge of and proficiency in flying at best glide speed and configuration will increase the chances of a successful forced landing.  This presentation will examine how to determine best glide speed, how to achieve it, and the importance of practicing emergency landings periodically.
