G'day Fellow Pilots,

This video is a recreation of an actual Air Crash Investigation involving a Beechcraft Duchess BE76. The experienced pilot, with over 1,500 hours, landed with the Landing Gear in the retracted position. NTSB Aircraft Accident Investigation Case GAA18CA239.

On April 27th 2018, two experienced flight instructors flew a Beechcraft Duchess BE76 from Nut Tree Airport (KVCB) for the purpose of training the Pilot in a Multi-Engine and retractable gear aircraft for the first time.

The conditions were VFR, with wind 210 / 9 knots and the visibility was very good. The pilot under instruction elected to use RWY 20.

The Flight Instructor had approximately 912 hours total flight time. The pilot under instruction, who is also a qualified Flight Instructor, had approximately 1,531 hours total flight time. Although this is the Pilots first time operating a Multi-Engine aircraft and experience with a Retractable Gear System onboard the aircraft.

On the downwind leg of the traffic pattern, as part of the introduction to Multi-Engine aircraft, the Flight Instructor asked the Pilot to shutdown the Left Engine to simulate a Single-Engine Emergency Landing. The Pilot asked a series of questions during the procedure.The aircraft landed with the Landing Gear still in the retracted position.

The Flight Instructor reported that they both had become distracted and forgot to extend the landing gear.

Neither the Flight Instructor or the Pilot were injured, however the aircraft sustained substantial damage. There was no fire as a result of the wheels up landing.

The NTSB investigation findings concluded that the accident happened as a result of the Pilot failing to extend the Landing Gear. Also, the Flight Instructors inadequate supervision and failure to ensure the landing gear was extended.

G'day Fellow Pilots,

This video is a recreation of an actual Aircraft Accident Investigation involving a Beechcraft Duchess BE76 running off the side of the runway and suffering a nose gear collapse.

During a Biennial flight review, the flight instructor simulated a Left Engine failure during the take-off roll by pulling the Left Mixture lever to idle cut-off. The Left engine stopped as expected, however the pilot did not react quickly enough, nor did the flight instructor. The instructor tried to pull the mixture on the Right Mixture lever, however his hand missed the Right Mixture lever. Resulting in a loss of directional control.

Neither of the pilots onboard were injured, nor was there any fire. However the aircraft fuselage suffered substantial damage.The flight instructor reported that there were no pre-accident mechanical failures or malfunctions with the airframe or engines.

The NTSB investigation findings concluded that the accident happened as a result of the pilot not maintaining directional control during the simulated Left engine failure on the take-off roll. Also the Flight Instructors delayed remedial action to maintain directional control and reduce the Right engine mixture control contributed.

How to Fly and configure a G1000 aircraft to fly a NDB approach without ADF onboard your aircraft. It is quite straight forward using the GPS, OBS and bearing pointers to fly the approach. It is a lot easier than flying the traditional NDB approach using the older style 6 pack instrumentation with a fixed card ADF.

This approach plate is NOT to be used for navigation purposes. By the time you watch this video, the approach procedure may very well have changed. Always use current instrument approach charts when flying.

In reality, your unlikely to fly the NDB approach when you can fly a GPS RNAV approach into the same airport instead. However, now you know how to fly a NDB approach in an aircraft with the G1000 instrumentation.
