I was working with my student for his commercial rating. We decided to practice emergency simulated engine-out lndgs at brazoria county airport. My student proceeded to follow my instructions and demonstrated a simulated straight-in engine-out landing. The first landing was a low approach only. The next landing was going to be a simulated emergency engine-out landing. I proceeded to instruct my student to set up for the emergency landing. I also instructed my student to leave all the drag off until the runway was made. So, in our gump scc, my student left the 'U,' the undercarriage, out of his landing check. Our spacing with the other aircraft was still not sufficient to demonstrate the landing properly. I then instructed my student to make the landing--a short field landing so we could start again and set our spacing in a proper order. I was watching the other traffic and told my student to turn base final in order to keep the spacing right. When we were on final the other aircraft was just touching down, so I kept my eyes on him. My student set up for the landing and I showed him, out the window, where to land. We proceeded with the landing and I assumed everything was ok prior to T/D. The closer we came to the runway nothing happened--the warning horn did not sound, so I figured everything was fine. We landed gear-up and made a short field landing.

Title: GEAR-UP LNDG WHILE TRAINING ENGINE-OUT AND EMERGENCY PROCS.
Narrative: I WAS WORKING WITH MY STUDENT FOR HIS COMMERCIAL RATING. WE DECIDED TO PRACTICE EMER SIMULATED ENG-OUT LNDGS AT BRAZORIA COUNTY ARPT. MY STUDENT PROCEEDED TO FOLLOW MY INSTRUCTIONS AND DEMONSTRATED A SIMULATED STRAIGHT-IN ENG-OUT LNDG. THE FIRST LNDG WAS A LOW APCH ONLY. THE NEXT LNDG WAS GOING TO BE A SIMULATED EMER ENG-OUT LNDG. I PROCEEDED TO INSTRUCT MY STUDENT TO SET UP FOR THE EMER LNDG. I ALSO INSTRUCTED MY STUDENT TO LEAVE ALL THE DRAG OFF UNTIL THE RWY WAS MADE. SO, IN OUR GUMP SCC, MY STUDENT LEFT THE 'U,' THE UNDERCARRIAGE, OUT OF HIS LNDG CHK. OUR SPACING WITH THE OTHER ACFT WAS STILL NOT SUFFICIENT TO DEMONSTRATE THE LNDG PROPERLY. I THEN INSTRUCTED MY STUDENT TO MAKE THE LNDG--A SHORT FIELD LNDG SO WE COULD START AGAIN AND SET OUR SPACING IN A PROPER ORDER. I WAS WATCHING THE OTHER TFC AND TOLD MY STUDENT TO TURN BASE FINAL IN ORDER TO KEEP THE SPACING RIGHT. WHEN WE WERE ON FINAL THE OTHER ACFT WAS JUST TOUCHING DOWN, SO I KEPT MY EYES ON HIM. MY STUDENT SET UP FOR THE LNDG AND I SHOWED HIM, OUT THE WINDOW, WHERE TO LAND. WE PROCEEDED WITH THE LNDG AND I ASSUMED EVERYTHING WAS OK PRIOR TO T/D. THE CLOSER WE CAME TO THE RWY NOTHING HAPPENED--THE WARNING HORN DID NOT SOUND, SO I FIGURED EVERYTHING WAS FINE. WE LANDED GEAR-UP AND MADE A SHORT FIELD LNDG.
