Baltic Aviation Academy’s video demonstrates belly – landing on Boeing 737
On the 29th of June Baltic Aviation Academy released a video ‘Boeing 737: Gear-Up Landing’. Throughout a session in Boeing 737 CL a Baltic Aviation Academy’s ATPL integrated student demonstrates how to conduct a precise landing without using the airplane’s landing gear. The video is accessible via http://youtu.be/LWyj3J6uZpg. The introductory video is part of Baltic Aviation Academy‘s video tutorials familiarizing aviation enthusiasts with various situations on Full Flight Simulators.
In 2011 a couple of the LOT airline’s Boeing 767 pilots became heroes as they came in to land without the aircraft’s landing gear. The emergency situation was caused by the hydraulic pressure system. Pilots demonstrated top-performance – none of the 210 passengers on board were hurt. The crisis management coordinated by the flight crew had a plan to circle the plane for a few minutes to dump fuel as the crew covered runway with fire retardant material and successfully implemented it.
According to statistics, belly landings are normally not fatal unless executed carelessly. There are two most common reasons for gear–up landings: pilot error or mechanical failure. Most landing gears are operated by electric motors or hydraulic actuators.
In response to the demand for more information expressed by aviation enthusiasts and pilots, Baltic Aviation Academy produces videos on various aviation training topics, interviews, webinars and etc. The entire video material can be accessed via www.youtube.com/marketingbaa.
