Can YOU—-at night, over a wooded mountain? Or maybe coming out of a scene at 200 feet and 30 knots, over some tall pines? for just two examples of times/ situations you would be in a world of hurt in HAA with single engine equipment in situations that really call for some power plant redundancy. In plain English for your benefit, two engines...
Oh yeah, I know, engines don’t quit, and it’ll never happen to you.
Or, you are Sky King and have more time doing full downs with the engine at idle than the rest of us do in the line at Wal-Mart.
But guess what, they DO quit and when they do it’s very unlikely to be over a level sod or a runway with a couple thousand feet of altitude to play with, and things are a little different when the fire really goes out instead of just being told to take five until the next traffic pattern.
