An Experiment in Plotting Runway Analysis Engine Out Procedures on a Moving Map App

Now that more pilots are using runway analysis engine out procedures, the question came up about how to depict these procedures on an electronic flight bag moving map. Runway analysis of the obstacles around an airport enables development of alternative engine out procedures, which can allow carrying more weight for the given conditions. We take a look at one way to depict a runway analysis engine out procedure using ForeFlight’s moving map, as a simple test of the concept of showing pilots what the procedure looks like graphically. This is just an experiment and not intended to be advice on how to operate an aircraft during engine failure after takeoff.
