Date & Time: 03/05/2018, 1430 MST
Registration: N669WH
Aircraft: MACDONALD CRAIG MAC CUB
Injuries: 2 None
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Personal 

On March 5, 2018, at 1430 mountain standard time, an experimental Mac Cub airplane, N669WH, experienced a partial loss of engine power and the pilot executed a precautionary landing to a dirt road near West Point, Utah. The pilot and pilot rated passenger/owner operated the airplane under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as a local area personal flight; they were not injured. The airplane sustained substantial damage after coming to rest inverted. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed for the local area flight that departed Skypark Airport (BTF), Bountiful, Utah, about 1330. A flight following flight plan was filed. The flight was destined for BTF.

According to the pilot, they were flying over a marshy area when the engine started to sputter. They found a nearby road that was about 10 feet wide and made a precautionary landing. During the rollout, the airplane encountered mud, and nosed over.

According to the pilot rated passenger/owner, he was seated in the front, and the pilot was seated in the rear of the airplane. The rear compartment is not equipped with instruments or a carburetor ice handle. When the engine began to run rough, they attempted emergency procedures, but did not active the carburetor ice. The engine was still running, but not developing enough power to remain aloft, so they decided to land.

The airplane was recovered for further examination.

Location: Pembroke Pines, FL
Accident Number: ERA17LA266
Date & Time: 07/12/2017, 1146 EDT
Registration: N55612
Aircraft: PIPER PA28R
Aircraft Damage: Substantial
Defining Event: Loss of engine power (total)
Injuries: 2 None
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Instructional 

On July 12, 2017, about 1146 eastern daylight time, a Piper PA-28R-200, N55612, was substantially damaged during a forced landing to a levy near Pembroke Pines, Florida. The flight instructor and pilot-rated student were not injured. The airplane was being operated under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as an instructional flight. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed at the time and no flight plan was filed for the local flight that originated about 1112 from North Perry Airport (HWO), Hollywood, Florida.


The flight instructor stated that about 30 minutes into the flight while performing a pre-maneuver checklist, the fuel selector was switched from the right to left tank position. Shortly afterwards the engine began to run rough accompanied by a loss of engine power. The fuel selector was then changed back to the original position which restored engine power. The flight instructor elected to return to HWO, and about 2 minutes after switching to the right tank, the engine lost power again, and could not be restored. He maneuvered the airplane for a forced landing on a nearby levy.


According to the Federal Aviation Administration inspector who examined the airplane while it was at the accident site, two distinct marks were noted on the sloped portion off the right side of the levy. Farther along the direction of travel, a continuous mark from the left main landing gear was noted on the sloped portion off the left side of the levy. The airplane came to rest on the top of the levy with the right main landing gear collapsed, and no damage to the propeller. Although there was fuel leakage from the right fuel tank due to puncture, an adequate supply of uncontaminated fuel remained in each fuel tank. The fuel selector was found in the off position with the locking mechanism engaged and locked.


With the assistance of the operator, the engine was started and operated between 600 and 2,000 rpm with the fuel selector on the left and right positions, also while exercising the fuel selector from left to right and right to left positions, with no discrepancies noted. The manifold pressure and fuel pressure were within normal limits. Checks of each magneto was performed at 2,000 rpm with each mag drop between 50 and 75 rpm. The engine was briefly run to full static rpm with the fuel selector on the left and right positions, with no discrepancies noted. Safety concerns prevented prolonged full power engine operation. During engine operation the left fuel gauge indicated 7/8 capacity, while the right fuel gauge indicated almost full. No contamination was noted in the wing fuel tanks, which were drained prior to removing the wings to facilitate recovery of the airplane.


Examination of the fuel selector following recovery revealed only residual fuel remained in the fuel selector, and oily residue was noted on the outside of the selector valve rotation area. The fuel selector valve was removed and sent to NTSB for examination.


Examination of the fuel selector valve revealed that movement of the shaft resulted in corresponding movement of the inner portion. The valve could be positioned to the left and right positions with no blockage noted. It also could be positioned to the off position. No further testing of the valve was performed.

A pilot kissed the tarmac after safely landing a small airplane with landing gear troubles Thursday at North Perry Airport in Pembroke Pines.

The nose gear of a Piper PA-28R-200 Arrow II collapsed as the aircraft landed around 9 a.m. on a runway, said the Federal Aviation Administration, which will investigate.

There were two men aboard.

The plane is operated by Wayman Aviation, a flight school at the airfield.

A WSVN-Ch. 7 helicopter filmed the dramatic flight and tricky landing. According to the station, the helicopter followed the Piper for about an hour, letting the crew know when its gear was raised and lowered as it did touch and go maneuvers until it eventually landed safely.

Video of the Piper PA-28R-200 Arrow II final approach to the runway showed the passenger holding his hands up in front of his face as the pilot steered to a safe stop. The men were able to toss their flight bags to the ground, get out of the disabled, single-engine plane and walk away from it.

The pilot raised his baseball cap in an apparent salute to the chopper pilot before falling to his knees and brushing the runway with his lips.

Fire trucks could be seen racing to the plane, but it did not catch fire, according to Pembroke Pines police.

The plane is owned by Father & Daughter Aviation, LLC, in Sunny Isles Beach and leased to Wayman Aviation, according to Eddy Luy, vice president of the flight school.

He said the pilot is a master certified flight instructor who has been with the company for five or six years and was giving a lesson to a commercial pilot who is training to become an instructor.

“They were having trouble with the nose landing gear, which they reported to the tower,” Luy said. “They did a fantastic job, all the way into the landing. It was a nice, safe controlled emergency landing. Everyone is safe and unharmed.”

Luy declined to release the pilots’ names, citing company policy after incidents.

The helicopter helped the Piper and communicated with it by radio, Luy said.

“This is exactly what training is for, 90 percent is for emergency procedures, the ‘what ifs,’” Luy said. “On an airplane with retractable gear, three green lights tell you if the gears are down and locked. One of the lights didn’t go on. The helicopter told them the gear was down, and they figured out it was not locked.”

Luy said the emergency landing “appears to be a mechanical failure, but it’s still under investigation. The plane has been with us a long time, we know it thoroughly. You fly enough hours, eventually something is going to happen.”

He said the Piper “absolutely was recently serviced,” but he didn’t have that date at hand.

It was the second time in eight months this Piper has made an emergency landing.

In July, 2017, the aircraft was “substantially damaged” after the engine lost power and the pilot was forced to stop on a levee near Pembroke Pines in the Everglades, according to the National Transportation Safety Board’s preliminary report.

That emergency also happened during a Wayman Aviation flight lesson. The instructor and pilot-rated student walked away unscathed that day, too.

“It was an interesting phenomenon called carburetor icing, that usually happens when the dew point is high, the ambient air temperature drops, and it restricts air flow into the engine,” Luy said. “They put the airplane down, we recovered it and it was by and large in good shape.”

The right main landing gear collapsed and a right fuel tank was punctured, according to the NTSB’s report. Luy said there was also damage to the fuselage, which he said was repaired.

“It was not the same landing gear involved in today’s incident,” Luy said.

After last summer’s crash and repairs, Luy said, “We put it back in service. Our school is very well known for doing a high level of maintenance, good quality maintenance.”

PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. - A small plane landed safely at North Perry Airport in Pembroke Pines Thursday morning after experiencing mechanical problems, authorities said.

Authorities said the plane's front wheel would not lock into place as the pilot attempted to land the plane.

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen confirmed that the Piper PA-28R-200 Arrow II nose gear collapsed as it landed at 9:20 a.m.

Pilot Richard Uecker, who witnessed the hard landing, told Local 10 News that he was about to take off when he saw the plane was having problems with its nose gear. He took cellphone video of the emergency landing.

"I told him maybe he could go ahead and try to go back up and crank it back down, but he said he has already tried that, and he tried to hit the runway and bounce it to see if it would lock into place, but it didn't. So he came in and landed on his nose," Uecker said. 

Pembroke Pines police said the plane landed safely and the pilot and passenger got out injury free.

"He did great. He kept it on the center line and everything turned out fine," Uecker said.

Sky 10 was over the airport as the pilot kissed the ground after getting out of the plane.

"We had a Piper Arrow with a forced landing. Both pilot and student are safe and unharmed. They did a fantastic job and executed emergency procedures flawlessly," Wayman Aviation Vice President Eddy Luy said in a statement.

The plane is registered to Father & Daughter Aviation LLC in Sunny Isles Beach.

Although there were no injuries, the plane still sustained considerable damage.

"Anytime you have a prop strike like that you are going to have to tear the engine down and redo that," Uecker said. "It is probably going to be about $25,000 worth of damage to that airplane."

The FAA is investigating the incident.

PEMBROKE PINES, FLA. (WSVN) - A pilot was forced to think quickly when his plane began to malfunction mid-air.

A small plane made an emergency landing at North Perry Airport after the pilot realized the landing gear would not stay down, Thursday morning.

7Skyforce was over the scene as the Piper PA-28R-200 Arrow II circled the airport for about 45 minutes and attempted two landings before successfully landing on the third try.

Video showed the plane hitting the runway nose-first. The airport was shutdown temporarily as the plane tried to figure out the safest way to come down.

“They came out of the pattern, went out over the practice area, did all their troubleshooting, communicated to the tower so that the airport was prepared,” said Eddie Luy with Wayman Aviation.

The pilot and student were flying out of Wayman Aviation when the incident happened. They both made it out safely.

“Really the best of a bad situation,” Luy said. “They were calm, collected, stepped through their check list, everything they needed to do. Cut the fuel, cut the engine before the nose came down.”

The pilot of the plane could be seen kissing the ground immediately after landing.

The pilot and student are both experienced flyers. “The student was actually already a commercial pilot training to be an instructor,” Luy said.

Wayman Aviation released a statement in response to the emergency landing.

“A senior instructor and student had an emergency landing. They did a fantastic job and followed emergency procedures. Everyone is safe and unharmed,” the company said.

A pilot and passenger are safe Sunday after their plane lost power while 300 feet in the air, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office. 

It all started when the pilot took off from runway 7 at Herlong Airport at 9300 Normandy Boulevard but lost all power at about 300 feet in the air, says JSO. He attempted to land the plane in a grassy field east of the runway, but JSO says the plane skidded to a stop. The pilot and his one passenger sustained very minor injuries.

Federal Aviation Administration is leading an investigation into the incident with assistance from JSO.

JSO says the plane is a 1977, 4-passenger Mooney M20J aircraft.
