FAA-S-8081-6D 8 Note: Area of Operation XI: Slow Flight, Stalls, and Spins, contains Tasks referred to as "proficiency" and "demonstration." The intent of Tasks B and C for single- engine (proficiency) is to ensure that the flight instructor applicant is tested on proficiency for the purpose of teaching students these Tasks that are required for pilot certification. The intent of Tasks D, E, F, and H (demonstration) for single-engine and Task D for multiengine is to ensure that the flight instructor applicant is knowledgeable and proficient in these maneuvers and can teach them to students for both familiarization and stall/spin awareness purposes. With the exception of the required Tasks, the examiner must not tell the applicant in advance which Tasks will be included in the "plan of action." The applicant should be well prepared in all knowledge and skill areas included in the standards. Throughout the flight portion of the practical test, the examiner will evaluate the applicant's ability to simultaneously demonstrate and explain procedures and maneuvers, and to give flight instruction to students at various stages of flight training and levels of experience. The purpose for including common errors in certain Tasks is to assist the examiner in determining that the flight instructor applicant has the ability to recognize, analyze, and correct such errors. The common errors listed in the Task Objectives may or may not be found in the Task References. However, the FAA considers their frequency of occurrence justification for their inclusion in the Task Objectives. The examiner is expected to use good judgment in the performance of simulated emergency procedures. The use of the safest means for simulation is expected. Consideration must be given to local conditions, both meteorological and topographical, at the time of the test, as well as the applicant's workload, and the condition of the aircraft used. If the procedure being evaluated would jeopardize safety, it is expected that the applicant will simulate that portion of the maneuver. Special Emphasis Areas Examiners must place special emphasis upon areas of aircraft operation considered critical to flight safety. Among these are: 1. Positive aircraft control. 2. Positive exchange of the flight controls procedure. 3. Stall/spin awareness. 4. Collision avoidance. 5. Wake turbulence avoidance. 6. LAHSO.
