#26 - Gear down water landings

Episode Summary

Gear down water landings are the simple disaster involving the landing gear of an amphibious aircraft being extended for a water landing. Why does it still happen today? I take a deeper look.

Episode Notes

At last years (2019) Seaplane Pilots Association of Australia conference, I did a presentation on gear down water landings. I am happy to share with you all the presentation, slightly modified for the podcast format. It is such a simple mistake that can be deadly, so why is it still happening today and how can we go about preparing ourselves more thoroughly to avoid this disaster.
