737 800/900 Engine Out Situation

Recommended Posts

Guest ad00am

Hi AllAfter the recent events of the Thomson 757 having a bird strike and as a result an engine failure, I thought it would be about time I practiced my 'Engine Out' situations on my 738.Take off was fine, at about 500ft into the climb I switched off the starboard engine and continued with my climb at V2. Levelling off at 2500ft I continued and prepared to make an emergency landing. All was well until I was established on the ILS. Flaps forty, the plane was very unstable. I was set up for a CAT3 landing and yet the plane was having major problems staying stable on the ILS. Why is this, and how can I land the plane successfully on just one engine?Any ideas, advice etc would be most appreciatedAdam

I tried this a few times before, but I forgot the maximum landing weight and was above it, the plane could not keep speed with the single engine.After I dumped fuel, it worked much better.
