ARC – Takeoffs and Departure Climbs

  • Course level: Intermediate


A review of aircraft accident data shows that about twenty percent of all general aviation (GA) accidents occur during takeoff and departure climbs. Further breakdown of the data indicates that more than half of those accidents were the result of some sort of failure of the pilot, and twenty percent of the mishaps are the result of loss in control of the airplane. When compared to the entire profile of a normal flight, this phase of a flight is relatively short, but the pilot workload is greatest. This course discusses takeoffs and departure climbs in airplanes under normal conditions and under conditions that require maximum performance.
