Just watching the news, reporting a 110 crashed into the Walmart at the end of 35. Reported engine failure on departure. Pilot alive, and reported in decent shape! I'm assuming it's AirNow.

This is AirNows second Emb 110 crash this year. Sounds slightly familiar to the other one that happened back in January except that guy was on approach I think when he lost his and attempted a missed approach from what I remember. That one didn't turn out so well. Hope this pilot is alright. But I wonder whats with all the turbine failures over there.

Glad to see he escaped with minor injuries (according to CNN at this time) Kind of ironic, with all the pilot pay comparisons to the Walmartization, that this guy ended up on a Walmart!
Probably the reason why the engine failed....(sarcastic)

I think the steel containers softened the impact and saved dude's life.

Get well soon! We thank God for the miracle that kept you through an otherwise unfortunate demise.

Two down and more to go.

Thats what happens when you fly AirNows junk,and you put low time pilots in planes of that nature. Glad he's all right. But makes you wonder about all the past threads on here about AirNow. You might think twice about that place and old Skippy Boy.

When will the FAA stop authorizing single pilot ops for aircraft like this? The 1900, metro, the 110...no way should they be single pilot. Too much going on in an emergency situation to have the highest possible degree of safety.

Bandido single pilot

I've got 1300 hours in the EMB110, about 250 of which is single pilot. It's a *************************cat to operate, even single pilot.

Having said that, I agree that a two pilot crew is much preferable to operating solo, especially without an autopilot (which would not have been of much help in this situation).

Glad to hear the pilot made it out o.k.

P. S. Too bad we have to edit certain words regardless of context.

So... throw some FO with 100 hrs in a seminole in the right seat and expect it to be safer? I've flown with some of these low timers, and I would much rather not have them in the right seat of such an aircraft when the S hits the fan. Useless.

Problem is the low-timer in the left seat. When I was there we had a few E110 captains with 10 (ten-no typo!) hours of multi. Anyway, just speculation; wish the pilot a speedy recovery.

I was one of those guys! had less than 100 multi too. Not every low time pilot is worth trading for 170lbs of fuel.

Airnow is going to run out of 110's at this rate.

Disturbing!

Glad he is OK.

Ive Got 2100 hours single pilot in the EMB 110 and about 950 single pilot in the Metro, and both of these airplanes are just fine for single pilot just as long as the single pilot that is flying is sharp and not slacking off. Moto...I have known Skip for about 5 years and he never once pressured me into doing something unsafe or questionable. He was always fair and never questioned my judgement if I had to cancel a flight due to MX or weather. I think the problem has more to do with pilots getting in over thier head and on top of that the pressure of making it in on time. People need to prioritize when it comes to thier flying...aka their a$$ home safe number 1, freight on time number 2. As far as the 2 planes down this year, one of them ran out of fuel Air Now MX has nothing to do with how much fuel the pilot takes. who knows about the second one. Not to speculate but what is the first thing you were taught about engine failures.....dont turn around. Good thing it worked out in this case although I think some one used eight of his nine lives in that one.
I am not denying that the reason the engine quit in the first place is still DEFINATELY under question. Im glad to hear that the pilot is OK and everything worked out. I guess we will have to wait for more details about what the prob was.
