Land Ahead if Safe to Do So

The established advice following a winch launch failure is to ‘land ahead if it is safe to do so’.

The existence of heavy sink overhead or close to the launch site is a an additional hazard associated with turning after a failed winch launch. This leaflet describes why sink during a turn following a launch failure is a hazard and reinforces the established advice, ie following a winch launch failure, land ahead if it is safe to do so.
