It's horrible when a student pilot has a mishap -- at the very time they are trying to build their confidence in their abilites, a mishap does ho positive help whatsoever.

Student Pilot having problem with landing gear? Something sound odd about that?

Last year 1,944 New Yorkers saw something and said something.

Sounds like an hysterical media report about a flat tire.

Guys dont forget when your training in High performance aircrafts you are still a student. It seems some have jumped the gun when they hear student pilot believe its just fixed landing gear. The story is very sketchy and its probably something stupid like a flat tire. But without facts you never know if it was a student flying a fixed gear, or a private pilot training on a retractable gear aircraft thus making him a student.

OR- It could very well be a student pilot learning how to fly in his/her personal Arrow or Bonanza. Not common, but not unheard of either.

BTW- I know a few cases of landing gear problems in fixed gear airplanes. One was in a cherokee where the stop bolt sheered in the oleo strut, and the main gear fell off on takeoff. The lower half was held onto the airframe by nothing more than the brake line. I think it was in one of Barry Schiff or Rod Machado's columns a few months back.

Then there was the "gear-up" landing in a J3 I saw earlier this year. Hit a tree stump on landing, tore the right main off, and when that went, the left main folded up.

If it was built by man, it WILL fail eventually.

KaiTakFan is right..

Here at Comair we've got students in Cessna 172RGs, which of course is an ac with Retractable Gear.

I agree with UAL1837, it's scary when your a student and something goes wrong. When I was doing my night rating, I was flying from Boundary Bay (south of YVR) to Victoria and back as my first night solo. On the way back from Victoria, all my electrical systems died. My lights, radios, flaps, etc. all were inop. I tried everything I could, but eventually I waited until the Boundary Bay tower was closed and landed. The wierd thing was I couldn't wait to fly again the next day.

If ever there was a thread topic that needed a question mark at the end of it, this is it.
