IV. Takeoffs, Landings, and Go-Arounds 24 Task E. Short-Field Takeoff and Maximum Performance Climb (ASEL, AMEL) 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 short-field takeoff, maximum performance climb operations, and rejected takeoff procedures. Knowledge The applicant demonstrates understanding of: CA.IV.E.K1 Effects of atmospheric conditions, including wind, on takeoff and climb performance. CA.IV.E.K2 V X and V Y . CA.IV.E.K3 Appropriate aircraft configuration. Risk Management The applicant demonstrates the ability to identify, assess and mitigate risks, encompassing: CA.IV.E.R1 Selection of runway based on pilot capability, aircraft performance and limitations, available distance, and wind. CA.IV.E.R2 Effects of: CA.IV.E.R2a a. Crosswind CA.IV.E.R2b b. Wind shear CA.IV.E.R2c c. Tailwind CA.IV.E.R2d d. Wake turbulence CA.IV.E.R2e e. Runway surface/condition CA.IV.E.R3 Abnormal operations, to include planning for: CA.IV.E.R3a a. Rejected takeoff CA.IV.E.R3b b. Engine failure in takeoff/climb phase of flight CA.IV.E.R4 Collision hazards, to include aircraft, terrain, obstacles, and wires. CA.IV.E.R5 Low altitude maneuvering/stall/spin. CA.IV.E.R6 Distractions, loss of situational awareness, and/or improper task management. Skills The applicant demonstrates the ability to: CA.IV.E.S1 Complete the appropriate checklist. CA.IV.E.S2 Make radio calls as appropriate. CA.IV.E.S3 Verify assigned/correct runway. CA.IV.E.S4 Ascertain wind direction with or without visible wind direction indicators. CA.IV.E.S5 Position the flight controls for the existing wind conditions. CA.IV.E.S6 Clear the area, taxi into takeoff position and align the airplane on the runway centerline utilizing maximum available takeoff area. CA.IV.E.S7 Apply brakes while setting aircraft power to achieve maximum performance. CA.IV.E.S8 Confirm takeoff power prior to brake release and verify proper engine and flight instrument indications prior to rotation. CA.IV.E.S9 Rotate and lift off at the recommended airspeed, and accelerate to the recommended obstacle clearance airspeed or V X +/-5 knots. CA.IV.E.S10 Establish a pitch attitude that will maintain the recommended obstacle clearance airspeed, or V X , +/-5 knots, until the obstacle is cleared, or until the airplane is 50 feet above the surface. CA.IV.E.S11 After clearing the obstacle, establish the pitch attitude for V Y , accelerate to V Y , and maintain V Y , +/-5 knots, during the climb. CA.IV.E.S12 Retract landing gear and flaps after a positive rate of climb has been verified or in accordance with aircraft manufacturer's guidance. CA.IV.E.S13 Maintain V Y +/-5 knots to a safe maneuvering altitude. CA.IV.E.S14 Maintain directional control and proper wind-drift correction throughout takeoff and climb. CA.IV.E.S15 Comply with noise abatement procedures.
