Double asymmetric

A Squared, my omission. What I failed to include in my post was Vmca. i.e. we never practiced double asymmetric flight in the B707 in the aircraft or in the simulator in relation to demonstrating Vmca. Given that you fly the C130 (L382) I can understand that you would look at double asymmetric in the Simulator, not so sure that I would agree with practicing the configuration in the aircraft. I know we did not practice it in the C130 other than in the Simulator. I assume you do not practice it in the aircraft at low altitude or at a speed anywhere near Vmca2. I also trust that in your aircraft practice you do not shut down the engines but come back to, or slightly above, flight idle.
