Re: A2A Aerostar Emergency Landing

That Queen Air is gorgeous but from a business pov, I am concerned about rising fuel prices. The twin market is already so soft and a spike in prices could be the nail in the coffin. I'd rather swoop into a crashed market and pick something up for much less rather than be one of those owners watch t...

Re: A2A Aerostar Emergency Landing

That is really a shame. Especially after all the work that has gone into it already. But sometimes that’s just what it is and if it’s the financially better decision you have to go with it. I hope you find a valid replacement. Good thing you haven’t sold the Comanche yet :wink: Thanks Treetops. You...

Re: A2A Aerostar Emergency Landing

Hope someone can restore it rather than part it out so the fleet doesn't shrink. This is my same hope. The normally aspirated (non turbocharged version) is getting so rare, especially a clean airframe with relatively low time. Considering the overall great shape of the aircraft, this is what I woul...

Re: A2A Aerostar Emergency Landing

The engines were not damaged at all. But legally, if a prop touches anything while the plane is in motion it is considered "sudden stoppage" that requires a tear down inspection. Unfortunately this is a pretty clear regulation that applies even when a still prop just slightly touches a surface. Scott

Re: A2A Aerostar Emergency Landing

At this point it appears the airplane will go to a salvage yard where it may be sold and will fly again or may be parted out. Not sure. I suppose the good news is we recently took a load of video recorded flight tests including deep stalls and I will get any more engine recordings for Accu-Sim and a...

As an aside from that, will this accident have any delaying affect on the completion of the sim version?
Yes but only in that we are putting a different airplane on the front burner to be released next.

Scott,

I'm pretty sure he was taking about a separate gear up incident he witnessed last week.
Ah OK, thanks for clarifying.

Re: A2A Aerostar Emergency Landing

The funny/sad part about what happened last week though is that once the crane came in to pick it up, they swung the gear and towed it to its hangar without a problem. I'm not sure why you think this as it's not what happened. The Aerostar gear is heavy and when it's in the up position, with that l...

Re: A2A Aerostar Emergency Landing

Glad you're safe and hope you get the hydraulics fixed and everything working smooth again. Did you ever think about burning off more fuel before the landing? Yes, but the only time risk of fire was an issue is if we had a gear collapse or landed on two wheels with a wing scraping. With a suspected...

Re: A2A Aerostar Emergency Landing

Damn, that year did not go without fighting to the end it seems. The main thing is that you guys are alright, and I hope the damage was relatively minimal as well. Were you lucky enough to avoid props hit the ground entirely? -Esa No, we feathered on short final and while the props were stopped, on...

Re: A2A Aerostar Emergency Landing

Not the usual way to celebrate the new year but glad it ended that way. On any conventional low wing twin, it would have destroyed both propeller and damaged both engines. Is it why you landed the aircraft on the runway and not on grass ? I would always choose a very long smooth hard surface to bel...

A2A Aerostar Emergency Landing

We had to unfortunately belly land our airplane last night and wanted to share some more details with our community here. aerostar_belly.jpg Jake and I took the Aerostar up to do some practice IFR. Shortly after taking off the hydraulic pressure was rapidly dropping with the pump kicking in every 1-...

Re: Bravo Zulu on the B-17

Thanks OldNavy, I had the same reaction when testing this for P3Dv5. It's really the first and only of it's kind that goes deep into so many areas. Our manual was built around the actual B-17 manual and the systems are simulated deeply. Thank you again for taking the time to post and enjoy the Flyin...
