Sept 1st 2019 - Video showing our Intentional, power off landing when our throttle cable broke off leaving engine at full throttle. Thankful for everyone involved and the flight planning around a 10k foot runway with intersecting options to give us margin and options while circling the field.
Encourage everyone to practice this situation safely with a CFI. When mixture comes out the engine is not just on or off, was able to basically control RPMs with a few backfires but was a stabilized approach in the end.
ATC's amazing coordination, professionalism, and the people we met as a result make this learning experience one we took a lot from.
Grateful for our mechanic, the A&P at KMEI (AJ), and the Meridian staff who were wonderful to us. Chad G from Houston who flew out to pick us up without hesitation, and the entire United Flight Systems staff of CFIs who prepared me well, and the owner Bobby D who flew me back to pickup the plane after AJ fixed it for us on his long weekend.
