Engine Out Landing

Your input and thoughts.
You are inbound to EGLC when you lose #1 engine.
Do you continue your descent and approach to EGLC or given the "nice anomalies" of EGLC or would you divert to say EGLL where a perhaps smoother and safer landing can be made?

I have made several training single engine approaches into EGLC and whilst it is possible, at times the pucker factor tends to rise somewhat.

Imo depends if there is fire and other damage or not. Without a burning fire I'd definitely head for Heathrow given the longer runway and conventional approach. Some situations demand you get on the deck ASAP though

Was looking at a basic engine out. No fire.
With a fire I would land in Granpa's meadow if needed  ;D

The Q400 steep approach guidance which has been slightly adapted from real world procedures states that you can’t land on one engine, however as Chris said if your on fire then I’d want to get it down ASAP and would probably opt for a non standard visual and take a more shallow approach. Given where LCY is located you have plenty of alternative airfields.


• Aircraft must be fully configured for landing prior to commencing a steep approach.
