Listen to this video. Then read his story in the description....
FTW ... FTW!
7,500' to land a Cherokee without using the brakes?
Am I missing something?
Perhaps they were holding it off the runway for the first 6500’
Low time pregnant Pilot freaking out
I know that voice.
How do you know before you’ve contacted tower that your toes brakes aren’t working? Is there more to the story before the audio begins?
Many checklists provided by schools include a brake check in the arrival checklist. So in addition to listening to ATIS/AWOS and and prepping to enter the airport environment, you check the brakes.
I got to land at WPAFB for an event, and it was Oshkosh busy! I have a picture of me on final, another guy over the numbers, and another turning off the runway. I was going well over 100 at the threshold, and used up vast amounts of runway in an undergross 172.
Of course, I wouldn't land that fast except in a hurricane; the pilot in this case could have come in as slow and steep as needed; for me, that would be as slow and steep as safe If I need to turn off at the end of a 3K or longer runway, I don't touch the brakes at all.
Nice job Matt!
I remember hearing this on Facebook. Awesome job, he was able to keep her calm as she dealt with the brake issue. I think this shows a testament to the value of controllers also being pilots.
So is she going to name the baby “Matt?”
Please provide many examples
I have never seen a checklist with a brake check before landing. But you said "school checklists", Mike, which I have truly never seen (had a private CFI).
It is not a bad idea to check brakes before landing. I will make a mental note in my head to do it during GUMPS check, once the gear is down. Thank you.
And good job by the calm controller for keeping a mentally unstable pilot from turning a non-event into full-blown Chernobyl.
