I agree with all that. Still, do you have a no brake way of getting out of a sudden student input that will put you in the weeds? Going into the weeds is a FSDO event; as far as I know so far a flat tire is not a FSDO event.

We only have trouble when tire pressures decrease. My partner likes to do 100 foot stops. It is his "hobby". I like to do short stops, but not "locked brake" stops.

The kind of event where, after, you get a call from FSDO asking for a statement and a copy of every airman document you own, and every document showing your airplane is current.

The only time you have to report a ground incident is if the incident occurs while the airplane is either taxiing to or from the runway for the purpose of flight, and it causes such damage that the flight characteristics of the airplane would be altered. There are certain caveats to that such as a simple gear up landing where damage is limited to skin is NOT a reportable accident.

So simply going into the weeds is no biggie. Unless of course there other airplanes already there. Or perhaps large rocks. A deuce and a half might be problem.

And even then you don't report it to the FSDO. First you call NTSB, then AOPA and get the name and number for your attorney. If you get a call from the FSDO, you say, thanks for bringing that to my attention, Skippy. If they send you a letter of inquiry, THEN you send them what they want. After you talk to your attorney.

You donít have to report it, ATC does it for you. Then the FAA come to you.
Been there done that.

Woody has it. If your student departs the runway, even with no damage, even returning to the runway for normal ops, you get a call, and no matter what, a letter in your file.

If you abort a takeoff, and the reason you state when the tower asks is not " coyote on the runway" you get a call.

If you get a call, be prepared with Xerox copies of your medical, flight review, aircraft annual, transponder, and ELT checks. When you start explaining about Sport Pilot, have a Xerox of the regulation with you.

This is all fairly new - started about four years ago. I complained to the Administrator in writing about the aborted takeoff. No way will I abort a takeoff now unless there is a possibility of death or dismemberment.

Joke - er, Opinion. Well, maybe truth. Never admit to anything.

So waddaya know? Two very nice feds showed up today, asking about the flat tire. I told them what I told you, and they seemed to go away happy. No xeroxes.

Good thing we are not watched this carefully in our autos.

I've been known to go full rudder with a BIG stab of brakes. All's fair in flight instruction and a "save your ass" kind of situation.
