Engine failure on takeoff, landing gear down.
Figure 12-11. Engine failure on takeoff, landing gear down.

Analysis of engine failures on takeoff reveals a very
high success rate of off-airport engine inoperative
landings when the airplane is landed under control.
Analysis also reveals a very high fatality rate in stall spin
accidents when the pilot attempts flight beyond
the performance capability of the airplane.

As mentioned previously, if the airplane's landing gear
retraction mechanism is dependent upon hydraulic
pressure from a certain engine-driven pump, failure
of that engine can mean a loss of hundreds of feet of
altitude as the pilot either windmills the engine to
provide hydraulic pressure to raise the gear or raises
it manually with a backup pump.

3. Landing gear control selected up, single engine
climb performance adequate.
12-13] If the single-engine rate of climb is
adequate, the procedures for continued flight
should be followed. There are four areas of
concern: control, configuration, climb, and

CONTROL— The first consideration following
engine failure during takeoff is control of the airplane.
Upon detecting an engine failure, aileron
should be used to bank the airplane and rudder
pressure applied, aggressively if necessary, to
counteract the yaw and roll from asymmetrical
thrust. The control forces, particularly on the
rudder, may be high. The pitch attitude for VYSE
will have to be lowered from that of VY.
