Good for her.. she will be ready for Allegiant Air in a few years... some duck tape and that C150 will be good as new.. lol.. glad for her thought... good job.

It's a Cessna, not a Cessa. It's Georgia, not Georga.

Carb ice can form in a carburetor at mild temperatures at partial throttle, typically during cruising around at partial power on a humid day. The temperature at the throttle plate, behind which there is a partial vacuum, can be very cold, at or below freezing, due to the rapid vaporization of the fuel at that location. The first thing you always do with a carburetor engine when loss of power occurs is to apply carb heat and switch tanks if appropriate. The second thing you do is to look for a place to land (single engine). If power resumes, proceed normally. If power does not resume, land.

Looking for a positive side,in addition to the successful forced landing: Sierra may always have the personal satisfaction of experiencing this mental attitude in the event of any future in-flight emergency.

This young pilot did every thing right. She remember her training well. Good job.

I know the news screws up information, but here is some local news video that shows the top of the piston. http://www.wtvm.com/story/32379506/teen-walks-away-from-plane-crash-scratch-free

Glad had a good landing... We saw something similar Memorial Day on the I-10..

Agreed, for her brief training, she did a great job!

Don't say it if you don't know it ......... So what if plane is damaged ? So what ? The pilot is alive and well , low altitude emergency , she used good sense and landed ........ Great job Sierra !!!
acampanella
Lost my comment. Wait until the distance to the landing site from the takeoff runway is reported.

Good job young lady. Of course kudos goes to her instructor as well. After all, it is the instructors that teach students to implement critical thinking in times of emergency.

I agree with all the comments esp the ones about Sierra. What bothers me, alot, is who maintains a training aircraft this poorly. New PIC should not have aircraft assigned to them that obviously are marginally maintained. Just grab the rental fee. I'd like to know the cause of the engine failure. If it is sloppy maintenance, their ticket should be pulled!

"Who maintains a training aircraft so poorly." Have you seen the maintenance log? Is it possible this was a S-happens moment? Her Dad is a AC mechanic and I am confident he would not let her fly a questionable plane. Her Dad said from what Sierra told him it appears to him it was a internal engine problem.

Or fuel starvation, among a many , many possible causes.

So you are implying that she should have been using carb heat on take off??? Hmmmm.... I never was taught that one!
acampanella
As for carb heat on takeoff, there is some interaction: Taxiing around extensively on a humid day can build up carb ice. The rule of thumb is, on first full throttle, to evaluate the RPM achieved. If it not up to that known for static run-up full power, then apply carb heat momentarily, then remove carb heat. Full RPM should be restored. Then and only then, is it safe to take off. My experience has been that Cessnas often exhibit carb ice if not treated properly, whereas the Cherokees that I have flown rarely needed carb heat.

Thanks Pete for the assist. No, I was not anywhere near there. I'm just going on the reported details. "Just after takeoff" is vague. Could be a fraction of a minute or could be several minutes. Would help to know the distance from the departure runway to the landing site. Sputtering could be lack of fuel, lack of ignition, or failed throttle linkage (had that happen to me once). It will be a long time until we find out.

I read a local article that said she was at 400 ft when the engine problems started.

I seriously doubt this was carburetor icing in Georgia this time of the year.
BaronG58

I agree. Ambient temperature would have to be in the 60-70 deg F max or lower for ice to form. Not the norm for Georgia this time of year.

I always wanted to ask....What does sputtering sound like? I've been flying for more than 40 years, and have never heard an engine sputter. I have experienced engine failures and never have I heard an engine sputter. Only non-aviation observers use this term but I don't know what it means.
PSUAth

Perhaps sputtering sound can be compared to sound of a very low rpm two stroke engine without a muffler or silencer .
IMHO
