The first thing that struck us in our review of the 100 most recent Mooney M20K accidents was the virtual absence of runway loss of control (RLOC) events.
For a non-fatal accident, your greatest risk is runway loss of control, usually in a crosswind.
Far too many pilots in the lower 48, who are rarely tasked with dodging grizzlies on the tundra, continue to send airplanes to the shop after hard landings, bounced landings and what's lumped into the this-guy-can't-fly category: "runway loss of control" (RLOC).
One thing omitted from this list is the wind, which we'd guess has as much impact on "runway loss of control," or RLOC, accidents and incidents as anything.
Having flown J-3s for more years than we like to consider, we were interested to note that only 16 of the 100 most recent prangs involved runway loss of control (RLOC).
In its July issue, your sister publication, Aviation Consumer, report 25 percent of Twin Comanche accidents involved runway loss of control during takeoff or landing.
Runway loss of control made up only 17 percent of all accidents--a decent showing and a reflection, in our opinion, that the wide-track landing gear makes for good ground handling overall.
The typical gust-related accident or incident involves what we like to call the runway loss of control: A gust picks up a wing--or the lack of a gust unceremoniously drops an airplane onto the pavement before the pilot is ready for it--eventually resulting in an excursion into the weeds.
There were four runway loss of control (RLOC) accidents, which struck us as high, although we felt for the pilot who hit two Canada geese on, or immediately after, touchdown and lost control of the airplane.
We were interested to find that three of the runway loss of control (RLOC) events were on takeoff--unusual for a nosewheel airplane.
We were not surprised that the frequency of runway loss of control (RLOC) accidents was relatively low--20 percent--because the airplane has effective controls and good manners on the ground.
