DescriptionSimulated engine failure occurs, and the airplane is troubleshooted and maneuvered to the best applicable landing site.
ObjectiveTo develop the skill and proficiency necessary to accomplish a power-off emergency approach and landing at the best available site.
Procedure• Complete pre-maneuver checklist. Clear the area. Make radio calls as appropriate. Maintain 2300 RPM and approximately 90 KIAS at least 2500 AGL and note altitude. Pick a prominent ground reference point to simulate a runway.• Slow to takeoff speed. Apply carburetor heat and reduce power to 1500 PRM. Increase back pressure on yoke to maintain altitude and slow to (55 KIAS).• Establish a climb. Upon reach , apply full power and pitch nose up simulating takeoff.• Simulate engine failure. Apply carb heat and reduce power to idle.• Establish best glide. Pitch and trim for best glide speed (65 KIAS). Begin 180° - 210° turn using 45° of bank to line up on ground reference point.• Assess. Note altitude lost during turn.
ACS Standards• Describe the appropriate action for simulated emergencies specified by the evaluator.• Complete the appropriate checklist
