Larry Baum will be talking about a challenge he faced in the Aerostar twin climbing out of 19,000 feet when a prop ran away (went to dangerously high RPM). This required immediate and continued action and it also required making several longer term strategic decisions. Larry faced and coped with a dangerous situation in which a wide array of decisions would impact successful outcome of the flight.
As an experienced pilot, Larry has also taken a lot of time reflecting on this issue along with his actions. He has also come to some surprising conclusions, you will want to hear them. Also, since this will be an interactive discussion, you will want to share in this adventure as it unfolds and see what decisions you would have made.
The feedback cycle of reviewing a flight along with your actions is critical to growth and staying sharp as a pilot; this process is evident in Larry's coverage of the situation.
This is an important safety discussion that will be engaging for students, new pilots and for experienced pilots alike.
This EAA Chapter 811 meeting is also an open invitation to members of the Flying Club. It is a good opportunity for Club members to learn more about EAA and what our chapter has planned for the year.
