Propeller Merits

The advantage of having a second engine


Two pilots were discussing the merits of a twin-engine, propeller-driven aircraft undergoing service trials.

“How does it handle?” asked the pilot who hadn’t yet flown the new plane.

“Oh, it’s not bad,” was the reply.

“How is it in asymmetric flight? One engine out?”

After thinking for a moment, the other pilot replied, “That’s where it becomes tricky. If one engine quits, the other engine immediately takes you to the scene of the crash.”
