Abstract : This chapter examines the problems associated with an engine failure and how engine out flight testing is accomplished. The discussion will begin with performance issues, how engine loss affects the takeoff and initial climb segments. Next, the equations of motion are introduced, modified for an engine failure. They are used to show how minimum control speeds are determined by design. Finally, flight test techniques are introduced for the evaluation of engine out flying characteristics of multiengined aircraft.
