Loss of braking effectiveness, loss of directional control, and long landing distances are all real threats when it comes to hydroplaning…


  1. 1) Hydroplaning only occurs to _________.

    Hydroplaning can happen in any aircraft, whether it’s a Cessna 172 or a Boeing 747.

    Hydroplaning can happen in any aircraft, whether it’s a Cessna 172 or a Boeing 747.

  2. 2) Your Cessna 172 nose wheel has a tire pressure of 45 PSI. If you were to land on a wet runway, what minimum speed do you expect hydroplaning could occur, and what kind of hydroplaning would it be?

    If you take 8.6 and multiply it by the square root of the tire pressure, you’ll get an approximate speed at which dynamic hydroplaning could occur. In this example, dynamic hydroplaning could occur at approximately 58 knots.

  3. 3) Which of these can prevent dynamic hydroplaning?

    You can help to avoid dynamic hydroplaning by making sure your tires are properly filled to the correct PSI, avoid landing fast and lastly, try to utilize aerodynamic braking by holding in back-pressure so you can isolate the aircrafts weight to the main landing gear.

  4. 4) Reverted rubber hydroplaning occurs when you ________ causing the ________. ________ under the wheel, as a result of this, causes you to hydroplane.

    Reverted rubber hydroplaning occurs when you lock up your tires causing the rubber to melt and trapped steam under the wheel causes you to hydroplane.

  5. 5) This type of hydroplaning is a result of landing on a runway contaminated with a thin layer of oil. It’s called _____.

    This type of hydroplaning is referred to as Viscous hydroplaning.
