Episode #188

Boys and Girls,

On the single engine take-off...

Take-off on a any twin prop or jet single-engine?
Don't think so! Ever heard of VMCg? You'll be off the runway in no time!
Flying was my first love and it will be my last one!

Well, you CAN take off single engine if the runway is long enough, and you have enough excess power to climb. Vmcg and Vmca are only applicable at full power, or cruise power. If you feed the power in slowly, and not to the point that you lose directional control, then you can take off. But you need enough runway.
