    • At any altitude over about 10,000 feet a aircraft of this size should be able to glide in to a suitable landing field.

      I lost eighty per cent of the power in a single-engined Piper Arrow at 5,000 feet about fifty miles North of Leeds. I was able to safely glide into Leeds Airport and make a landing on very low power. I think it was done with a 767 in Canada. Most aircraft make good gliders and the Space Shuttle did unpowered landings all the time.

      Remember that you have all the potential energy of the plane to convert into forward speed.
