IV. Takeoffs, Landings, and Go-Arounds 26 Task G. Confined Area Takeoff and Maximum Performance Climb (ASES, AMES) 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 confined area takeoff and maximum performance climb operations. Knowledge The applicant demonstrates understanding of: CA.IV.G.K1 Effects of atmospheric conditions, including wind, on takeoff and climb performance. CA.IV.G.K2 V X and V Y . CA.IV.G.K3 Appropriate aircraft configuration. CA.IV.G.K4 Effects of water surface. Risk Management The applicant demonstrates the ability to identify, assess and mitigate risks, encompassing: CA.IV.G.R1 Selection of takeoff path based on pilot capability, aircraft performance and limitations, available distance, and wind. CA.IV.G.R2 Effects of: CA.IV.G.R2a a. Crosswind CA.IV.G.R2b b. Wind shear CA.IV.G.R2c c. Tailwind CA.IV.G.R2d d. Wake turbulence CA.IV.G.R2e e. Water surface/condition CA.IV.G.R3 Abnormal operations, to include planning for: CA.IV.G.R3a a. Rejected takeoff CA.IV.G.R3b b. Engine failure in takeoff/climb phase of flight CA.IV.G.R4 Collision hazards, to include aircraft, terrain, obstacles, and wires. CA.IV.G.R5 Low altitude maneuvering/stall/spin. CA.IV.G.R6 Distractions, loss of situational awareness, and/or improper task management. Skills The applicant demonstrates the ability to: CA.IV.G.S1 Complete the appropriate checklist. CA.IV.G.S2 Make radio calls as appropriate. CA.IV.G.S3 Verify assigned/correct takeoff path. CA.IV.G.S4 Ascertain wind direction with or without visible wind direction indicators. CA.IV.G.S5 Position the flight controls for the existing wind conditions. CA.IV.G.S6 Clear the area, taxi into takeoff position utilizing maximum available takeoff area and align the airplane on the takeoff path. CA.IV.G.S7 Confirm takeoff power prior and proper engine and flight instrument indications prior to rotation. CA.IV.G.S8 Establish a pitch attitude that maintains the most efficient planing/liftoff attitude and correct for porpoising and skipping. CA.IV.G.S9 Rotate and liftoff at the recommended airspeed, and accelerate to the recommended obstacle clearance airspeed or V X . CA.IV.G.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.G.S11 After clearing the obstacle, establish pitch attitude for V Y , accelerate to V Y , and maintain V Y , +/-5 knots, during the climb. CA.IV.G.S12 Retract flaps after a positive rate of climb has been verified or in accordance with aircraft manufacturer's guidance. CA.IV.G.S13 Maintain V Y +/-5 knots to a safe maneuvering altitude. CA.IV.G.S14 Maintain directional control and proper wind-drift correction throughout takeoff and climb. CA.IV.G.S15 Comply with noise abatement procedures.
