Restart Procedure/Bonanza
      11/19/12 08:16 PM

Yeahbut. That was intentional. The original question had me thinking "drop
the airplane to fly the fuel system" -- not a pretty picture at 1000 AGL.

I've had three engine emergencies in singles, all below 1500 AGL. In two
cases, there were two qualified pilots. In each of those, I was the
right-seater and took over the problem solving and the radio, leaving the
left seater nothing to do but fly the airplane. That worked very well each
time.

One of those was similar to Scott's post -- lost engine during climbout from
a missed practice approach, but the prop was windmilling. Restoring fuel
flow straightened it out instantly without doing anything else.

The one engine failure I had as the only pilot was clearly hopeless with
regard to the engine (prop stopped from T/O power with a loud clank, oil all
over), so it was a straightforward glider flight.
