Hello all

I would like to ask If sombody knows about emergency landing procedures when the L/G fails to extend or extends partially?

Sounds like a switched on pilot / ground crew - fast thinking, safe outcome!

All good.

Keep Safe

Thanks for the replies but the point is what to do if only one or two legs extend and the rest remains inside.
I think that this is the worst case senario and I would like to know if you have in mind of an official, proven solution.

Guess it depends on the specific aircraft and then which leg didn't extend!

I've seen a Dauphin with a stuck nose-wheel that had to settle its nose as gently as possible on the ground, as there were no other options available. Guess there was a lot of aft cyclic during the process!!!

If one of the rear legs stayed put, not so sure what your best course of action would be....... leave them up???

It depends on whether it is the main or nose gear. I have seen a pilot set an S76 down on the dolly with the right main tucked in the well, hanging the left gear off the side of the dolly itself. Now that was a bit of flying.

However, if the nosewheel does not come down, it is better to pull all the gear up and land belly flat.

Regards,
AB
