Safe Mode: On
Airplane stalls with parachutists still inside

Atlas Angel Gabriel was declared below the minimum safe approach speed
on run-in. This led to a stall and subsequent spin. All skydivers
exited the aircraft and the pilot recovered the spin and landed the
aircraft safely. The matter was reported to the SACAA the pilot
involved will be receiving additional training to avoid re-occurrence.


The aircraft has been inspected and no contributing defects were
discovered. As a precaution the aircraft is also undergoing a stress
analysis.

Hence forth, all Atlas Angel pilots will undergo more
intense stall and spin training as part of their initial and bi-annual
re-currency training. This will enable pilots to identify and
pro-actively correct situations that may result in a stall or spin.

  • Quick modification: Oh look, all sorts of other skydiver planes seem to also have these horrible "incidents! that those of us who are actually pilots call a Pilatus Porter doing an extreme descent:

  • Skydive aircraft are the fucking worst. I am a flight instructor and avoid places that have skydive operations like the plague. Those asshats often don't talk on frequency, land on intersecting runways when people are using the other runways just so that they can get back a minute or so quicker, and are generally unsafe and basically screw everyone else in the pattern over.

    Long story short, fuck almost all the skydive pilots that I have had the privilege to fly with at an airport.

      I agree very LOL. To be honest I wouldn't really need that line of instruction.

  • If this were a stunt as some are suggesting, isn't it exceptionally dangerous to jump out of a spinning aircraft because you could hit the tail or the wing or strut something as it's spinning? I can't imagine a skydiver agreeing to be part of that sort of stunt. Just askin'.

    • @JeddyAlpha that is why the airplane was clearly spinning as some guys jumped out, right? Because none of them would do that. The pilot stops the rotation briefly as the main cameraman exits the plane then resumes the spin before landing.....because it was unintentional right? Wow, you have to be dumb. Next time save your comments for things that you know about.

    • I know your type Jeddy. You were trying to call people out who know it's fake because you had a preconceived notion of how thing were supposed to be and you want to be right. You ask stupid questions if that was really a question. Who would jump out of a spinning plane? Everybody, according to the video. The spin began before the first person exited the plane. So you look extra stupid for stating that you 'can't imagine a skydiver would be part of such a stunt.' they were all a part of it. Tryin More..

    • @JeddyAlpha Go read up on spins. In fact, here is a link to the FAA Airplane Flying Handbook http://www.faa.gov/library/manuals/aircraft/airplane_handbook/media/faa-h-8083-3a-3of7.pdf so you can go read up on slow flight and spins. Then look up the Pilot's Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge about aircraft stability. Only then can you understand enough to make an educated comment on anything that has to do with aviation. It is impossible for that plane to remain nose down in a spin like that unle More..

    • @JeddyAlpha There is no need to even comment further to you, you made yourself look like a complete ass for two reasons. First, because the most intelligent things you can respond with is gay and small penis. Really? What are you 5? Second, you just contradicted yourself which proves that you are talking through your ass and have no clue what you're saying. Your so called question was more of a statement proven by the fact that you added reason to your argument in saying I can't imagine anyone w More..

  • Just looking at this again - I have concluded the spin was intentional for the purposes of the film. It would be the only way the aircraft could keep up with the divers in the descent and as you can see the clip with the a/c heading straight down with the divers looks pretty damn cool.

  • This is a set up - obviously some sort of advertising.

    The pilot must be an imbecile not to be able to recover that!

  • Sorry, not buying it. That was just stupid. That airplane spins for a LONG time and it shouldn't have. Either the pilot held it in the spin or his training is so inadequate as to be entirely unacceptable. My bet is that this was 100% intentional and they git caught - hence all the stuff about reporting to SACAA and whatnot.
