at about 4:00 PM (Oct 19) an Embry Riddle Piper PA-44 Seminole had a nose gear failure and was forced to make a crash landing on 21L at Prescott Love Field. At the time i had rented a plane from a close by flight school and was doing a run-up at the end of the runway. I watched the plane do a low pass and then make its landing. from what i could tell it looked like it was executed to perfection, both engines cut before the threshold, land tail low, keep the tail off and let the nose come gently down. the nose came down a little hard but as soon as it came to a stop the trucks were at the scene and the occupants got out. 21L/03R was closed for about 30-45 minutes. For those of you familiar with Riddle, it was Riddle 74, I havent been able to talk to a flight supervisor or anyone at Riddle yet but when i do i will post what i find out.

No biggie... time to get rid of that Seminole, they got all the bling bling to replace it... saw one parked at Flagler Co, looked kinda on its way to retirement from ERAU's fleet... BTW, anybody know if any of ERAU's TwinStars has had a double engine failure?

Arigato hai,

No, there have been no engine failures on any of the TwinStars.

The seminoles are on their way to being retired at the end of this year.

Check the original post . . . the accident happened at PRC - your quote has to do with the Daytona campus. The TwinStars are doing quite well and our flight department is very happy with them so far. However, it looks like the PA-44's will be around for a bit longer than expected.

I graduated from the DAB campus in 02. I always loved the PA-44...very fun airplane to fly and easy to land in my opinion. I flew the DA-20 and didn't care for it much at all.

Thats because the DA-20 is a single engine plane . . . we have the DA-42!  Wink

I have some time in a PA-44 as well, excellent training airplane, even if it is a PA-28R with an extra engine!

How is that a crash landing? I think emergency landing is a more fit word as the landing was apparently well executed in a trained manor.

Bingo...!

DA-42s are there just to teach people how to not fly a normal twin.

yeah, since it only caused gear and prop damage it can be considered an incident, now if the engines were not stopped when it struck then i would be considered an accident. there is a big difference under part 830.2 of the FAR.

If you're a flight student you might want to use the correct term, "Incident" or "accident" . " Crash" is only used by the media  Smile

This is not a huge deal, and def is not the first time it has happened to our PA-44s! Neither the student or the IP were injured and thats the major part. I agree the title is miss-leading, it should be a, accident but not a crash landing. The same thing (similar circumstances) happened a few years ago, odds are the plane will be fixed and returned to service in a few months time. Not sure how the post got so off topic with the DA-42s, but yes ERAU PRC is looking at getting the DA-42s in another years time, and although the rumors are very strong we will get them, I have not heard of us actually placing an order for them!
