It has almost been 10 years since the remarkable work of Cheslley “Sully” remarkable landing on the Hudson River after a dual engine failure caused by a flock of Canadian Geese on January 15th, 2009.
The Saturday before the 10 year anniversary of this event, we will have a landing challenge, to see if we can’t pull it off ourselves. We will spawn it at LaGarba-, I mean LaGaurdia airport and take off from runway 04, and climb up to 2,900 ft, while making a left turn over the Bronx at 185 knots, then shut off both engines, then glide over the left side of the river, before finally lining up with the river and ditching.
Aircraft: US Airways A320
Hope to see you there!
