IV. Takeoffs, Landings, and Go-Arounds 22 Task C. Soft-Field Takeoff and Climb (ASEL) 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 a soft-field takeoff, climb operations, and rejected takeoff procedures. Knowledge The applicant demonstrates understanding of: CA.IV.C.K1 Effects of atmospheric conditions, including wind, on takeoff and climb performance. CA.IV.C.K2 V X and V Y . CA.IV.C.K3 Appropriate aircraft configuration. CA.IV.C.K4 Ground effect. CA.IV.C.K5 Importance of weight transfer from wheels to wings. CA.IV.C.K6 Left turning tendencies. Risk Management The applicant demonstrates the ability to identify, assess and mitigate risks, encompassing: CA.IV.C.R1 Selection of runway based on pilot capability, aircraft performance and limitations, available distance, and wind. CA.IV.C.R2 Effects of: CA.IV.C.R2a a. Crosswind CA.IV.C.R2b b. Wind shear CA.IV.C.R2c c. Tailwind CA.IV.C.R2d d. Wake turbulence CA.IV.C.R2e e. Runway surface/condition CA.IV.C.R3 Abnormal operations, to include planning for: CA.IV.C.R3a a. Rejected takeoff CA.IV.C.R3b b. Engine failure in takeoff/climb phase of flight CA.IV.C.R4 Collision hazards, to include aircraft, terrain, obstacles, and wires. CA.IV.C.R5 Low altitude maneuvering/stall/spin. CA.IV.C.R6 Distractions, loss of situational awareness, and/or improper task management. Skills The applicant demonstrates the ability to: CA.IV.C.S1 Complete the appropriate checklist. CA.IV.C.S2 Make radio calls as appropriate. CA.IV.C.S3 Verify assigned/correct runway. CA.IV.C.S4 Ascertain wind direction with or without visible wind direction indicators. CA.IV.C.S5 Position the flight controls for the existing wind conditions. CA.IV.C.S6 Clear the area, taxi into takeoff position and align the airplane on the runway centerline without stopping, while advancing the throttle smoothly to takeoff power. CA.IV.C.S7 Confirm takeoff power and proper engine and flight instrument indications prior to rotation. CA.IV.C.S8 Establish and maintain a pitch attitude that will transfer the weight of the airplane from the wheels to the wings as rapidly as possible. CA.IV.C.S9 Lift off at the lowest possible airspeed consistent with safety and remain in ground effect while accelerating to V X or V Y , as appropriate. CA.IV.C.S10 Establish a pitch attitude for V X or V Y , as appropriate, and maintain selected airspeed +/-5 knots during the climb. CA.IV.C.S11 Retract landing gear and flaps after a positive rate of climb has been verified or in accordance with aircraft manufacturer's guidance. CA.IV.C.S12 Maintain V X or V Y +/-5 knots to a safe maneuvering altitude. CA.IV.C.S13 Maintain directional control and proper wind-drift correction throughout takeoff and climb. CA.IV.C.S14 Comply with noise abatement procedures.
