The 7 FLIT Maneuvers are the cornerstone of FLIT: Forced Landing Into Trees.
Using the 7 FLIT ManeuversÂ a pilot is able to:
- Significantly reduce the Horizontal Kinetic Energy (EK-H) of the aircraft
- Select multiple FLIT-type landing options in any emergency forced landing scenario they are faced with, within which trees are present
- Use the PINWHEEL Effect in THREE of the 7 FLIT Maneuvers, which causes the aircraft to SPIN, keeping the pilot and passengers at the centre, and using the engine, empennage and wings to absorb the remaining energy through deforming as objects are struck. By the spinning of the aircraft, the PIC and PAX are kept largely ‘out of harms way’, through the creation of a Virtual Crumple Zone
