Victor C pilot of N19VC

"Victor,
Mike's statement about radioing your plight was not directed at you. It has been in his signature line for a long time."

It's OK, NO offense taken. I did not take it personally but just wanted to stress the option 'IN CASE' someone else accepts the comment as the norm for ATC.

Same as Why ATC 'must' ask "how many souls on board and fuel remaining" after you declare "MAYDAY". VictorC

Default NASA report

It is nice in the interest of safety to file a NASA report, but the immunity portion of that program does not apply to accidents.

And it doesn't apply to any incident the FAA decides was not inadvertent. The supposed "get-out-of-jail-card" nature of the NASA report is as much myth as reality.

Very interesting read. Thanks for posting your experience, Victor. In many ways, you are very fortunate this turned out as well as it did.

Default Damper flywheel

Interesting that the NTSB didn't mention the main solution to this problem. All the failures were on aircraft with solid flywheels. Eggenfelner stated over 2 years ago that "the only airworthy set-up is the dual mass flywheel". The dual mass flywheel dampens the impulses from the engine and greatly reduces the stress on both the splined shaft and gearbox. There have been no failures of the shaft or gearbox on aircraft equipped with the dual mass flywheel. Prudence still dictates recurring inspections on the shaft.
