EP179: Hard landing damages a Cirrus SR22. See my bad landing, watch the nosewheel get damaged, and see how it’s repaired. Today’s vlog shows the landing at Bankstown Airport, and analyses what caused it. We also get taken through the repair process by the Blue Demon Aviation team at Moorabbin Airport.
Thanks to Paul, Steven, Mark, and everyone at Blue Demon Aviation for helping with this video: http://www.bluedemon.com.au
I’m sharing this video to help other pilots learn from my mistake, and to help share what happens when a Cirrus aircraft part gets damaged and how it’s fixed.
Please remember if you have any repairs or maintenance issues with an aircraft to consult a Licensed Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (LAME) before doing anything yourself.
