The purpose of this topic is to create scenarios, and other users will reply to the scenario created and will say what they would have done?
Aircraft: Boeing 737-800
Route: KDFW -> KMIA
Time of day: 21:00Z
Weather: Clear day with few clouds
Scenario: You are cruising at 36,000 thousand feet on your way to Miami, and all of a sudden one of your engine fails. The closest airport to you 50 nautical miles away, but has one runway that is 5000 feet long(recommended runway length for a 737 is 6,781 feet). There is also another airport which meets the 737’s landing requirements, but it is 250 nautical miles, and your last remaining engine could fail at any time. What would you do?
The first thing that I would do is to try and restart the engines, and if that doesn’t work I would attempt to go to the airport that is farther away. The reason I would go to the closer airport is because I wouldn’t want to have a runway overrun when I might of had the chance of making it safely to the farther airport!
Please keep in mind that each person has their own opinions, so don’t criticize people on their response! The first scenario that you all will have to answer is the example on stated above! Have fun responding to the scenarios! If there is something wrong with this topic could someone please PM me ASAP.
