If you're like us, you're not too interested in going off the end of the runway on takeoff. So as the weather starts to heat up this spring, make sure you're calculating takeoff distance before every flight. The following accident demonstrates exactly what can go wrong when you don't use a takeoff distance chart properly.

Trike Engine Failure On Takeoff Emergency Landing Scenarios

Paul Hamilton presents three different engine out scenarios on takeoff for trikes. Because it is a long runway and the trike is lightly loaded the altitudes for a turn back to the airport are used. This is not practical for airplanes or lower-performance trikes. Always seek engine out scenarios with a qualified instructor before attempting, trying, practicing or performing any scenario close to the ground. The ground can break or kill you. The ground sudden stop is very bad. Avoid getting close to the ground.

When your engine fails on a trike, you do not crash, you glide down and land just like a hang glider without an engine. This is the same as an ultralight and microlight trike flying.
