InFlight Metrics is developing a pre-flight planning tool, called Takeoff Advisor, which provides pilots with supplemental turnback information that may help them better understand their options in the event of a loss of power on takeoff in a particular aircraft. The project is currently seeking flight data from pilots across the country. If you would like to have additional information as to whether your aircraft might be able to perform a turnback to the runway under certain conditions, please go to www.InFlightMetrics.com/Turnback for additional information and instructions.
EAA supports the efforts of InFlight Metrics in relation to the Takeoff Advisor Project. Pilots can have fun learning more information about their aircraft’s capabilities as well as participate in advancing general aviation safety.
