Around, around, around she goes...and where she stops....??
Well old Macca can go on risking his and his students necks for all his worth.
Me???..past it now, dont like sitting there sucking up leather these days..besides I sort of want to enjoy the grandkids.
Used to be a real "Gun" in my early instructor days..leave my students white faced gibbering wrecks!!...until enlightenment, and getting the crap frightened out of me, then I realised a rational "Safer" approach achieved the same result..which is "Competence"...can take a little longer...but a hell of a lot safer, you just have to build a scenario and make it believable, with lots of air between your ass and the rocks...and to hell with the "regulator"..one of whom thinks a microsoft bench top simulator will give a student a realistic demonstration of assymetric performance.
No browney points for killing your student guys.
Oh!..and for those that subscibe to full feathered approaches..Technically with an engine shutdown and feathered you are in an emergency situation.
Until such time that the engine is restarted and the prop unfeathered.
Do you declare an emergency when you feather one?
