ENGINE FAILURE AFTER TAKE-OFF
On 23 November, the 10th ENAIRE-IATA-EUROCONTROL Safety Workshop was held online. Sepla's Technical Department participated in this workshop with a 10-minute presentation on emergencies after take-off.

 

Francisco Cruz García – Collaborator of Sepla's Technical Department

In this short lecture we presented the pilot's point of view after an engine failure after take-off. As we know, the fundamental premise after an emergency is to Fly, Navigate and Communicate. In the presentation we showed the audience the enormous implication of each of these three verbs for the crew:

  • Fly: Pitch control of the aircraft, thrust/engine power adjustment, wing warping and heading control, aircraft configuration, etc. In this phase, the assistance of Pilot Monitoring is essential. 
  • Navigate: This is a tricky issue for the ATC. As we know, according to ICAO Doc 8168, performing a SID requires the assumption that all engines are operating. The normal gradient of a SID is 3.3%, unless a higher gradient is published. However, this gradient in most reactors is not met in the case of engine failure. It is the responsibility of the operator to establish contingency procedures for each runway in the event of engine failure in accordance with both ICAO Annex 6 and DOC 8168. These engine failure procedures often differ from operator to operator.

    Another highly recommended option in traffic congested areas is, above MSA/MRC (Minimum Safe Altitude/Minimum Radar Chart Altitude), to request radar vectors.
