CT4ME Posted July 18, 2012 Report Share Posted July 18, 2012 From what I've seen, it's a fairly standard procedure to "crack the door" just before doing an emergency off-field landing. The stated purpose is that the frame could get tweaked to the point were the doors wouldn't open, trapping the occupants in a potentially fiery situation. With the doors "pre-opened" a speedy exit is possible. But how about the CT? Should the doors be opened? From what I've seen, the CT holds up great in crash situations, because the passenger "pod" stays intact. We've all seen the pictures where the pod is the only thing left, and all the passegers survived, possibly even walking away. So.... won't opening the doors significantly weaken the pod? Do the doors become stuck after a hard landing? With our design, there is no "crack the doors", it's all or nothing. Waddya think? I'm inclined to leave the doors latched.
