VII. Slow Flight and Stalls Task 38BTask A. Maneuvering During Slow Flight References FAA-H-8083-2, FAA-H-8083-3; POH/AFM Objective To determine that the applicant exhibits satisfactory knowledge, risk management, and skills associated with maneuvering during slow flight. Knowledge The applicant demonstrates understanding of: PA.VII.A.K1 1. 1018BThis maneuver as it applies to different phases of flight. PA.VII.A.K2 2. 1019BThe relationship between angle of attack (AOA), airspeed, load factor, aircraft configuration, aircraft weight, and aircraft attitude. PA.VII.A.K3 3. 1020BThe range and limitations of stall warning indicators (e.g.: aircraft buffet, stall horn, etc.). PA.VII.A.K4 4. 1021BThe difference between AOA and aircraft attitude during all flight conditions and how it relates to aircraft performance. PA.VII.A.K5 5. 1022BHow environmental elements affect aircraft performance. PA.VII.A.K6 6. 1023BThe importance of the 1,500-foot AGL (ASEL/ASES) or 3,000-foot AGL (AMEL/AMES) minimum altitude. Risk Management The applicant demonstrates the ability to identify, assess and mitigate risks, encompassing: PA.VII.A.R1 1. 1024BThe interplay of aerodynamic factors (angle of attack (AOA), airspeed, load factor, aircraft configuration, aircraft weight, and aircraft attitude). PA.VII.A.R2 2. 1025BRange and limitations of stall warning indicators (e.g.: aircraft buffet, stall horn etc.). PA.VII.A.R3 3. 1026BThe effect of environmental elements on aircraft performance. PA.VII.A.R4 4. 1027BCollision avoidance, scanning, obstacle and wire strike avoidance. PA.VII.A.R5 5. 1028BFailure to react appropriately to a stall warning. PA.VII.A.R6 6. 1029BFailure to maintain coordinated flight during the maneuver. PA.VII.A.R7 7. 1030BFailure to manage pitch attitude and power to avoid a stall warning or a stall. Skills The applicant demonstrates the ability to: PA.VII.A.S1 1. 1031BSelect an entry altitude that will allow the Task to be completed no lower than 1,500 feet AGL (ASEL, ASES) or 3,000 feet AGL (AMEL, AMES). PA.VII.A.S2 2. 1032BEstablish and maintain an airspeed, approximately 5-10 knots above the 1G stall speed, at which the airplane is capable of maintaining controlled flight without activating a stall warning. PA.VII.A.S3 3. 1033BAccomplish coordinated straight-and-level flight, turns, climbs, and descents with landing gear and flap configurations specified by the evaluator without activating a stall warning. PA.VII.A.S4 4. 1034BDivide attention between airplane control, traffic avoidance and orientation. PA.VII.A.S5 5. 1035BMaintain the specified altitude, ±100 feet; specified heading, ±10°; airspeed +10/-0 knots; and specified angle of bank, ±10° or as recommended by aircraft manufacturer to a safe maneuvering altitude. 54
