Left seat DC-3 Engine Failure Drill + a different take on Multi Engine Flight Training

I don’t always question training methods… but when I do, I learn something 🙂

Please comment with your thoughts on the potentially controversial topic of traditional multi engine flight training regarding engine failure procedures (specifically after take off / on climb out).

Big thanks to Gold Seal for inviting us to produce this one! And massive thanks to Dan for sharing this training, and for being willing to “put himself out there” regarding this topic!

Visit this link if you’re interested in SkyDiving with his team! 

Dan was also a big part of motivating me to get my multi engine rating done. I had not planned on starting that before finishing IFR… but it has been a fun ride. Check out our Multi Engine videos here.

I’m a Private Pilot, doing my best to stay current and learn. I fly for fun and might just be the least cocky pilot on the internet! My self analysis videos can seem self deprecating at times, but I am trying to learn from the small mistakes to avoid making a big one; I’m happy to share and find it rewarding to help other pilots or aspiring aviators in any way that I can. How does the saying go? “Experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test first, the lesson afterwards”. And in aviation, not all tests are survivable.

My virtual “ride-along” flying videos are aimed and sharing my experiences and giving back to the aviation community which has been so helpful to me. I shoot multi-camera angles, get detailed real time instrument panel shots, and have radio intercom audio. I respect people’s time, so I put a fair bit of work into editing to keep the videos concise and engaging; I add animations and further graphics and voice overs where needed to add context and explanations.

My hope is to continue to grow and evolve the “Flight Chops” project with input and support from the aviation community!

I am a “weekend warrior” private pilot, I fly for fun with no intentions of going commercial. I have had my PPL for over 15 years, but still consider each flight a learning experience – I generally take detailed notes after each flight to remind myself what went well or what I could do to improve…. Having the GoPro cameras to record flights like this is invaluable. I find these self analysis videos very helpful in my constant quest to improve, and am happy to share.

Feedback is invited; however, please keep it positive.

  • So- I see from your videos that you have been in contact with some good instructors and operators, especially with recent warbird contacts. It is too bad that you have been getting your large vintage airplane training from someone with Gryder’s reputation. Hopefully you will continue your training elsewhere !
