On my practice checkride yesterday the nosewheel blew on taxi to takeoff. It was quite the bummer. I consider myself lucky, had it happened 45 seconds later on my takeoff roll or while I was airborne it could've done serious damage and loss of control.

Here's a pic.

We're not invulnerable!

Glad your okay.

What was the cause of that tire blowing up?

Cause unknown. There was a puncture in the side of the tube, it's hard to imagine what might do that but I think an animal may be the culprit (somehow).

Dennis: of course I posted it on Facebook! Why wouldn't I utilize such an opportunity for attention, which may or may not be from girls. :wink:

What was your check ride for?

I once did a circuit with one of the main wheels quite soft, and it made it trickier to handle at speed.
Couldn't imagine how bad it would be for it to blow completely!

Checkride for my Private Pilot Airplane. And oh lordy was it tough to control. Rudders were practically useless so I was inching to a run up area to get out via use of differential brakes.

OMG!!!

Glad you're okay!

Must have been hard to taxi.

I remember having to taxi on a single engine (right), and all my turns had to be to the right, wasn't nice...

So it was all good when you did your pre-flight, but when you had taxied a while, it just blew/deflated?

Just trying to point some blame here :twisted:

Exactly, it was quite odd. I checked it during preflight like I always do and found nothing wrong. Taxied with no problems, had my run up, it wasn't until 30 seconds after my run up that it blew while taxiing. No one in the club (the plane belongs to a flying club that my dad and I are a part of) has any clue of how it could happen.
