IV. Takeoffs, Landings, and Go-Arounds 21 Change 2 (6/12/2017) Task B. Normal Approach and Landing 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 approach and landing with emphasis on proper use and coordination of flight controls. 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.B.K1 A stabilized approach, to include energy management concepts. CA.IV.B.K2 Effects of atmospheric conditions, including wind, on approach and landing performance. CA.IV.B.K3 Wind correction techniques on approach and landing. Risk Management The applicant demonstrates the ability to identify, assess and mitigate risks, encompassing: CA.IV.B.R1 Selection of runway based on pilot capability, aircraft performance and limitations, available distance, and wind. CA.IV.B.R2 Effects of: CA.IV.B.R2a a. Crosswind, to include exceeding maximum demonstrated crosswind component CA.IV.B.R2b b. Wind shear CA.IV.B.R2c c. Tailwind CA.IV.B.R2d d. Wake turbulence CA.IV.B.R2e e. Runway surface/condition CA.IV.B.R3 Abnormal operations, to include planning for: CA.IV.B.R3a a. Rejected landing and go-around CA.IV.B.R3b b. Land and hold short operations (LAHSO) CA.IV.B.R4 Collision hazards, to include aircraft, terrain, obstacles, and wires. CA.IV.B.R5 Low altitude maneuvering/stall/spin. CA.IV.B.R6 Distractions, loss of situational awareness, and/or improper task management. Skills The applicant demonstrates the ability to: CA.IV.B.S1 Complete the appropriate checklist. CA.IV.B.S2 Make radio calls as appropriate. CA.IV.B.S3 Ensure the aircraft is aligned with the correct/assigned runway (ASEL, AMEL). CA.IV.B.S4 Scan the landing runway and adjoining area for traffic and obstructions. (ASEL, AMEL). CA.IV.B.S5 Consider the wind conditions, landing surface, obstructions, and select a suitable touchdown point (ASEL, AMEL). CA.IV.B.S6 Establish the recommended approach and landing configuration and airspeed, and adjust pitch attitude and power as required to maintain a stabilized approach. CA.IV.B.S7 Maintain manufacturer's recommended approach airspeed, or in its absence, not more than 1.3 stalling speed (V SO ), with wind gust factor applied +/-5 knots, or as recommended for the aircraft type and gust velocity. CA.IV.B.S8 Maintain crosswind correction and directional control throughout the approach and landing. CA.IV.B.S9 Make smooth, timely, and correct control inputs during round out and touchdown. CA.IV.B.S10 Touch down at speed recommended by manufacturer, within 200 feet beyond a specified point on the runway (ASEL, AMEL), or during round out and touchdown to contact the water at the proper pitch attitude within 200 feet beyond a specified point in the landing path (ASES, AMES). In addition, for AMEL and AMES, the touchdown will be within the first one-third of the available runway or water landing area. CA.IV.B.S11 Execute a timely go-around if the approach cannot be made within the tolerances specified above or for any other condition that that may result in an unsafe approach or landing. CA.IV.B.S12 Utilize runway incursion avoidance procedures.
