13 FAA-S-8081-6D applicant's use of visual scanning and collision avoidance procedures, and the applicant's ability to teach those procedures. Examiners should go to the greatest extent possible to test the applicant's application and correlation skills. When possible, scenario-based questions should be used during the practical test. The examiner will evaluate the applicant's ability to teach visual scanning, runway incursion avoidance, collision avoidance procedures, and Land and Hold Short Operations (LAHSO). If the examiner determines that a Task is incomplete or the outcome uncertain, the examiner may require the applicant to repeat the entire Task or portions of the Task. This provision has been made in the interest of fairness and does not mean that instruction, practice, or the repeating of an unsatisfactory Task is permitted during the certification process. When practical, the remaining Tasks of the practical test phase should be completed before repeating the questionable Task. On multiengine practical tests, where the failure of the most critical engine after lift off is required, the instructor applicant and examiner must give consideration to local atmospheric conditions, terrain and type of aircraft used. However, the failure of an engine shall not be simulated until attaining at least V SSE /V YSE and at an altitude not lower than 400 feet AGL. During simulated engine failures on multiengine practical tests, after simulated feathering of the propeller, the engine shall be set to zero thrust. The examiner shall require the instructor applicant to simultaneously demonstrate and explain procedures for landing with a simulated feathered propeller with the engine set to zero thrust. The examiner must not simulate any conditions that may jeopardize safe flight or result in possible damage to the aircraft. Satisfactory Performance The practical test is passed if, in the judgment of the examiner, the applicant demonstrates satisfactory performance with regard to: 1. Knowledge of the fundamentals of instructing; 2. Knowledge of the technical subject areas; 3. Knowledge of the flight instructor's responsibilities concerning the pilot certification process; 4. Knowledge of the flight instructor's responsibilities concerning logbook entries and pilot certificate endorsements; 5. Knowledge of the flight instructor's responsibilities conveying to the applicant runway incursion mitigation techniques and procedures.
