What does “when the altitude is too low” mean?

 

i wonder if he ejected at all? The trainees are suppose to be making the mistakes not the instructors...

 

interested to hear their final conversation....a critical mistake was made somewhere in the final minutes

 

 

Perhaps the plane had rotated when he ejected and he was ejected towards the ground.  When I was in the AF that happened to a pilot at my base.

RIP the pilot and a big thumbs down to the <deleted> who made the tasteless post.

Sad news. My condolences to the instructor's family. I hope they are able to find the cause and make the adjustments for future flights.

Not in the least bit funny, a crew member has died, no need for sick jokes.

I agree. I find no humour in the pain, misery or death of another.

sorry to hear about the pilot, the trainee is one hell of a lucky

guy, usually it happens very quick and no one survives.

Or simply got too low trying to save the plane. The parachute just needed more time to react to slow him down enough prior to impact.

Just hate listening to clowns who don't understand how airplanes or aviation works...

 

The L39 is one of the best trainers out there with an excellent record.

 

As for ejecting too low, a successful ejection requires overcoming the airplanes speed and possibly negative vertical path. In certain situations 20,000 feet can be "too low". 

 

Unfortunate to hear of the pilots death.

altitude means the height from the ground if you use ejection at a very low altitude you have a serious problem from the article can’t say what when wrong.

They are constantly looping around CM City and I know they require training and I admit to knowing very little about aircraft but have thought over the last 12 yrs why not practice over a less populated area with an airfield to practice take offs and landing.This aircraft could have killed many on the ground, this was not sparsley popuated area.

sometimes if a crash is imminent the pilot will stay until he is sure no civilians will be killed, in air space around such a densely populated area, I believe he was a very brave man, rest in peace.

Or Pilot knew the plane was going down, got the rookie out, and tried to get the plane away from heavily populated area.

Huge Govt surplus and shitty eastern bloc planes! Wing 41 in the heart of CM. I see them whizzing around , planes and helicopters,   quite often from my balcony. Let’s hope they get their damn act together. 

RIP to the pilot. 

What a remarkably dumb thing to say because first world jets "whizz around" without incident ?
