It was a north westerly at 280/7kts. I despise coming in low and slow at fields with few options esp on anan elevated rw like 26 prone to windshear. I was at 70kts indicated with full flap. I did not touch down on the nosewheel as some suggest. I also never apply brakes on touchdown for fear of heating up brakes and causing tyre bursts. By the time i did apply brakes- there was nothing. The ac would not slow down. I atyempted vacating right onto the grass hence the skid marks. Very irresponsible and a poor airmanship for wknd warriors to give theories based on assumptions without knowing the facts. Brakes were complained about a few times prior to the incident where amos did the beat they could and blamed the poor design on the manufactures. I have my theories but ill leave that to the experts to coment on with all the facts before becoming part of the ignorant know it all wknd warrior crowd. Ignorance and arrogant know it all pilota are the largest danger to aviationChalkie wrote: ↑Thu Aug 15, 2019 5:01 pmCorrect.
Low power, low nose, good view of the runway with speed stable at 1.3 Vstall or less (as required) versus: the low approach with high nose, high power, now where exactly is that runway?
In this case it would seem the pilot was WAAAY above 1.3Vs and only touched down at about the halfway mark by pushing the aircraft down onto the nosewheel. Folks, the main wheels are designed to absorb the landing loads, the nosewheel is there to keep the prop off the ground whilst you taxi. It is not meant to be landed on... All the skid marks at the end would indicate the wings still supporting some weight, when they should have been done with the producing lift job.
Much has been said about the quality of flight instruction and some flight instructors, this seems to add fuel to the argument of poor quality. Perhaps he / she? should have done another go around and landed uphill. ANY tailwind on a downhill runway is asking for a problem.
Crazy C, I have had a couple of accidents and it's absolutely natural to look for outside reasons why they happened, rather than looking at yourself. Crashing an aircraft is a very emotional event. It will take a bit of time for the dust to settle and for you to see clearly what actually happened. Try to write down the sequence of events dispassionately - as if you were talking about someone else flying the aeroplane - perhaps one of your pupils.
I suspect that it might even take a year before you are really ready to analyse the accident unemotionally
If you can Google "Dunning-Kruger" and try to understand what they are saying, without getting upset, then you are a strong and sensible man.
All the very best for your future in aviation.
