This eliminated the critical engine and lowered VMC. But the fact remains: The Seminole is designed with simplicity in mind. Piper Seminole Piper Seminole. This was incredibly helpful when it came to the CASA exams. Our meteorology lecturer not only explained everything in-depth, he also reminded us about the basics and how important they are in understanding every phenomena that occurs.
The book says you can see speeds as high as KTAS at percent power, but in my experience this is often optimistic.
Piper PA44-180 Seminole 1979-82 POH (761-662)
Above 4, feet, the airplane may not be as polite. I can understand that. Although aimed at the training market, the Seminole also appeals to deminole cadre of owner-operators who simply want a late-model multi for peace of mind when flying at night, over mountains, or over water.
That was way back inwhen the Seminole was still a fresh concept and there was debate about whether the design would hang in there for the long run.
Fuel quantities and pressures are indicated on gauges on the instrument panel.
To do an airstart, all you do is advance the prop lever at the appropriate airspeed to knots and the accumulators start the props turning. Please login below for an enhanced experience.
Single-engine climb, posted as fpm, is as lackluster as any light piston twin. The airline academy style training that our students receive; semionle they are the recipients of the highest quality training available on the market today.
In the normal category all aerobatic maneuvers including spins are prohibited.

Use the proper target values and the airplane behaves well during instrument procedures. At or near VMC — marked by a red radial line on the airspeed indicator — students would begin to notice the onset of an uncontrollable roll and yaw toward the “dead” engine, in spite of full opposite rudder.
One of the best flying adventures I ever had was in a Turbo Seminole, only 87 of which were built. The airplane is a four-place, low wing, twin engine airplane piiper with retractable tricycle landing gear. Students practicing their VMC demonstrations would put semniole left, or critical, engine the one that, were its power lost, would create the most adverse handling characteristics at a pipet setting, advance the right engine to full power, then reduce airspeed by pitching up.
Electrical power is supplied by two 60 ampere alternators, one mounted on each engine.
Seminoles continue to be one of the tamest, friendliest light twins ever built. The fuselage and wings are virtual clones of Piper’s Arrow single-engine retractable, which explains why some call the Seminole a “Twin Arrow. We’ll see you in the skies. Hair-raising drills such as engine cuts right after takeoff, stalls with a windmilling engine, and engine-out stalls in turns sometimes made engine-out practice all too real. An overvoltage relay in each alternator circuit prevents damage to electrical and avionics equipment.
Murrayfield Precision Circuit Competition November 11 8: Fuel management controls are located on the console between the front seats. Was a good way of identifying your own areas of knowledge deficiency.
Useful Load Normal Category 1, lbs. Sometimes this ended with fatalities, especially in cases where instructors cut an engine right after takeoff and students allowed airspeed to drop to VMC — or lower.
Fuel Capacity gallons gallons gallons Min. Some of the schools that use Seminoles as their flagships include: These values are about what you’d expect from a light piston twin.
Become a Commercial Pilot. Landings are uncomplicated, and using short-field techniques full flaps, 75 KIAS or slightly less over the fence, depending on weight can produce breathtakingly carrierlike landing distances. A 35 ampere-hour, volt battery provides current for starting, for use of electrical equipment when the engines are not running, and for a source of stored electrical power to back up alternator output.
Diploma in Aviation — CPL component. In the light twin’s glory years of the s and s, flight instructors and designated examiners had little federal guidance on practical test standards. The trip proved that the Seminole is as fine and capable a cruising machine as it is a trainer. Thanks to the T-tail there’s little in the way of pitch changes and retrimming requirements with configuration changes. Major aviation schools top the list of big-volume customers. Whether you want to learn to fly as a commercial pilot, or require advanced cockpit flight training ACFTsuch as an Instrument Rating or Instructor Rating, we have a solution that will suit your needs.
Excellence in pilot training
Both are four cylinder, normally aspirated, direct drive, air cooled, horizontally opposed, carburetor equipped engines. In attempts to provide real-life engine-out experiences, some instructors used poor judgment and went too sejinole. But with temperatures below standard and a light load, you can see single-engine climb rates pushing fpm. Beginning with the model year, New Piper made some really nice improvements over semknole original design.
In the Seminole’s case, VMC is 56 KIAS — just one knot above the knot stall speed in the landing configuration and one knot below the clean stall speed. One reason why earlier multi-trainers tended to bite back has to do with their behavior near VMC. Cylinders 4 4 4 Displacement cu. The College is committed to ensuring graduates are not only professional pilots, but are employable pilots. The practice exams were really helpful in understanding what type of poy to expect.
The fuel tank vents, one installed under each wing, feature an anti-icing design to prevent ice formation from blocking the fuel tank vent lines.
