IV. Takeoffs, Landings, and Go-Arounds 27 Task H. Confined Area Approach and Landing (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 approach and landing. Knowledge The applicant demonstrates understanding of: CA.IV.H.K1 A stabilized approach, to include energy management concepts. CA.IV.H.K2 Effects of atmospheric conditions, including wind, on approach and landing performance. CA.IV.H.K3 Wind correction techniques on approach and landing. Risk Management The applicant demonstrates the ability to identify, assess and mitigate risks, encompassing: CA.IV.H.R1 Selection of approach path and touchdown area based on pilot capability, aircraft performance and limitations, available distance, and wind. CA.IV.H.R2 Effects of: CA.IV.H.R2a a. Crosswind CA.IV.H.R2b b. Wind shear CA.IV.H.R2c c. Tailwind CA.IV.H.R2d d. Wake turbulence CA.IV.H.R2e e. Water surface/condition CA.IV.H.R3 Abnormal operations, to include planning for rejected landing and go-around. CA.IV.H.R4 Collision hazards, to include aircraft, terrain, obstacles, and wires. CA.IV.H.R5 Low altitude maneuvering/stall/spin. CA.IV.H.R6 Distractions, loss of situational awareness, and/or improper task management. Skills The applicant demonstrates the ability to: CA.IV.H.S1 Complete the appropriate checklist. CA.IV.H.S2 Make radio calls as appropriate. CA.IV.H.S3 Ensure the aircraft is aligned with the correct/assigned waterway. CA.IV.H.S4 Scan the landing area for traffic and obstructions. CA.IV.H.S5 Consider wind conditions, landing surface, obstructions, and select the proper landing path. CA.IV.H.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.H.S7 Maintain manufacturer's published airspeed, or in its absence, not more than 1.3 V SO , +/-5 knots, with wind gust factor applied. CA.IV.H.S8 Maintain crosswind correction and directional control throughout the approach and landing, as required. CA.IV.H.S9 Make smooth, timely, and correct control application during the round out and touchdown. CA.IV.H.S10 Contact the water at the minimum safe airspeed with the proper pitch attitude for the surface conditions. CA.IV.H.S11 Touch down within 100 feet beyond the specified point, with no side drift, minimum float, and with the airplane's longitudinal axis aligned with the projected landing path. CA.IV.H.S12 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.H.S13 Apply elevator control as necessary to stop in the shortest distance consistent with safety.
