DescriptionThe airplane is landed without the use of the flaps.
ObjectiveTo develop the student’s ability to land the aircraft in a situation that would cause the flap system to become inoperative.
Procedure• Final Approach. Fly a normal traffic pattern and set an aiming point to land within the first 1/3 of the runway. Leave flaps retracted and maintain higher than normal approach speed at 70 KIAS. The descent angle should be expected to be shallower than flying an approach with flaps. “Heels on the floor and back” must be verbalized by the pilot flying on short final or go-around must be initiated.• Maintain aiming point. Continue descent at 65 KIAS and maintain aiming point using power for altitude control, and pitch for airspeed control.• Touchdown. Upon reaching short final when landing is assured, pull power to idle and begin to slow the aircraft by maintaining sight picture of aiming point. At round out increase back elevator pressure to continue to slow the aircraft until flare and touchdown. Keep nosewheel off the runway as long as possible. Ground roll should be expected to be longer due to faster approach speed.
ACS Standards• Describe the appropriate action for simulated emergencies specified by the evaluator.• Complete the appropriate checklist
