2001 AL C-182 Headland Non-Fatal Non-Fatal Single-Engine Undetermined

C-182 Non-Fatal Headland, AL July 28, 2001

The pilot stated that as the aircraft descended, the engine was operating at 2000 rpm, and the selected manifold pressure was 15 in Hg, and at 8,000 feet he noticed that the engine had ceased operating. Prior to noticing that the engine had ceased operating he said everything had been normal, but as he maneuvered to land he felt he was too far down the runway to land safely, so he elected to perform a go-around.
