20 Change 2 (6/12/2017) IV. Takeoffs, Landings, and Go-Arounds Task A. Normal Takeoff and Climb References FAA-H-8083-2, FAA-H-8083-3, FAA-H-8083-23; POH/AFM Objective To determine that the applicant exhibits satisfactory knowledge, risk management, and skills associated with a normal takeoff, climb operations, and rejected takeoff procedures. Note: If a crosswind condition does not exist, the applicant's knowledge of crosswind elements must be evaluated through oral testing. Knowledge The applicant demonstrates understanding of: CA.IV.A.K1 Effects of atmospheric conditions, including wind, on takeoff and climb performance. CA.IV.A.K2 V X and V Y . CA.IV.A.K3 Appropriate aircraft configuration. Risk Management The applicant demonstrates the ability to identify, assess and mitigate risks, encompassing: CA.IV.A.R1 Selection of runway based on pilot capability, aircraft performance and limitations, available distance, and wind. CA.IV.A.R2 Effects of: CA.IV.A.R2a a. Crosswind, to include exceeding maximum demonstrated crosswind component CA.IV.A.R2b b. Wind shear CA.IV.A.R2c c. Tailwind CA.IV.A.R2d d. Wake turbulence CA.IV.A.R2e e. Runway surface/condition/length CA.IV.A.R3 Abnormal operations, to include planning for: CA.IV.A.R3a a. Rejected takeoff CA.IV.A.R3b b. Engine failure in takeoff/climb phase of flight CA.IV.A.R4 Collision hazards, to include aircraft, terrain, obstacles, and wires. CA.IV.A.R5 Low altitude maneuvering/stall/spin. CA.IV.A.R6 Distractions, loss of situational awareness, and/or improper task management. Skills The applicant demonstrates the ability to: CA.IV.A.S1 Complete the appropriate checklist. CA.IV.A.S2 Make radio calls as appropriate. CA.IV.A.S3 Verify assigned/correct runway. CA.IV.A.S4 Ascertain wind direction with or without visible wind direction indicators. CA.IV.A.S5 Position the flight controls for the existing wind conditions. CA.IV.A.S6 Clear the area; taxi into takeoff position and align the airplane on the runway centerline (ASEL, AMEL) or takeoff path (ASES, AMES). CA.IV.A.S7 Confirm takeoff power and proper engine and flight instrument indications prior to rotation (ASEL, AMEL). CA.IV.A.S8 Rotate and lift off at the recommended airspeed and accelerate to V Y . CA.IV.A.S9 Retract the water rudders, as appropriate, establish and maintain the most efficient planing/liftoff attitude, and correct for porpoising and skipping (ASES, AMES). CA.IV.A.S10 Establish pitch attitude to maintain the manufacturer's recommended speed, or V Y +/-5 knots. CA.IV.A.S11 Retract the landing gear and flaps in accordance with manufacturer's guidance. CA.IV.A.S12 Maintain V Y +/-5 knots to a safe maneuvering altitude. CA.IV.A.S13 Maintain directional control and proper wind drift correction throughout takeoff and climb. CA.IV.A.S14 Comply with noise abatement procedures.
