yeah you can glide pretty decent with those light single engine planes. When I was 16 my neighbor took me out in his cub trainer and purposely killed the engine and put it in a stall and recovered long before anything remotely dangerous happened.

Yeah, they don't allow training any more where you actually shut off the engine. Closest you get is pulling back to idle and doing psuedo emergency landing line ups with fields.

Just did this in fact about a week ago. You'd be surprised how much time you have even from a "low" altitude of 1200 feet AGL. Enough time to pick a landing point, run through a check list, call an emergency, set the transponder to 7700, then start the emergency landing final approach. And that's all between 1200 and 500feet if you calmly take your time.

Anything below 500feet AGL, you pretty much pick something within a 30 degree cone in front of you, aim for it, and maybe..... make a radio call.

It's even more if the prop actually stops!!

I had an engine quit before. Unnerving, but not unmanageable. This is what good training is for.

Ride smart... stupid hurts.

I don't know what that thing was. But it seemed to have a crappy glide ratio. It seemed drop pretty quick when not under power.

Trust me, when you see a plane coming down over the road, people slow down.
The one that landed on the street about 5 years ago in Buffalo Grove was in front of my apartment.

A friend called and asked my address. He tells me look out your front window, your on the news. There was the plane. He's like "you're an idiot, you didn't hear it?"
Ummmm no, it had no engine! haha.

I got into an argument with my examiner on my check ride. He simulated an engine failure and told me to pick a place. After he asked why I didn't pick the grass strip over there. I told him that was someones back yard. He said it was a grass strip. I told him to get the owner to tell his kids not to play on my emergency runway then.

Looked like a light sport plane. If any of you have ever flown one of them or an ultralight you would understand. They have a terrible glide ratio because of all the parasitic drag and boxy shapes. They go up fast and come down fast(without power). The instructor was a bonehead for practicing engine-out procedures over a populated area.

Well those clowns didn't run through their emergency procedures at all. Step one get to best glide speed for that aircraft, pick out a emergency landing field, check master switch, mags check both on, mixture check full rich, carb heat on, check all breakers, full set to on or both tanks, primer in and locked, squaw 7700, radio to 121.5, mayday, mayday, mayday make and tail number, last know position, 2 on board (in this case) then try restart engine and pray. This is a classic example of pilots forgetting their emergency procedures and I didn't see a check list either! I never go anywhere without my checklists.

Sometimes goodbye is your second chance.

Ercoupe glides forever When I was practicing stimulated engine out procedure I spotted a abandoned airstrip, told my instructor I was going to use that, he said I would never make it, I said sure we can, we said okay go for it. We made it Then he said well you took a big chance, there was a grass strip just below us I am a bone head at times. Now I look around a little more.

If you want to see glide, try one on the newer gliders. I used to fly an ASK21, a Schleiker(sp?).
