IV. Takeoffs, Landings, and Go-Arounds 28 Task I. Glassy Water Takeoff and Climb (ASES, AMES) References FAA-H-8083-2, FAA-H-8083-23; POH/AFM Objective To determine that the applicant exhibits satisfactory knowledge, risk management, and skills associated with a glassy water takeoff and climb. Note: If a glassy water condition does not exist, the applicant must be evaluated by simulating the Task. Knowledge The applicant demonstrates understanding of: CA.IV.I.K1 Effects of atmospheric conditions, including wind, on takeoff and climb performance. CA.IV.I.K2 V X and V Y . CA.IV.I.K3 Appropriate aircraft configuration. CA.IV.I.K4 Appropriate use of glassy water takeoff and climb technique. Risk Management The applicant demonstrates the ability to identify, assess and mitigate risks, encompassing: CA.IV.I.R1 Selection of takeoff path based on pilot capability, aircraft performance and limitations, available distance, and wind. CA.IV.I.R2 Water surface/condition. CA.IV.I.R3 Abnormal operations, to include planning for: CA.IV.I.R3a a. Rejected takeoff criteria CA.IV.I.R3b b. Engine failure in takeoff/climb phase of flight CA.IV.I.R4 Collision hazards, to include aircraft, terrain, obstacles, and wires. CA.IV.I.R5 Low altitude maneuvering/stall/spin. CA.IV.I.R6 Distractions, loss of situational awareness, and/or improper task management. CA.IV.I.R7 Failure to confirm gear position in an amphibious aircraft. Skills The applicant demonstrates the ability to: CA.IV.I.S1 Complete the appropriate checklist. CA.IV.I.S2 Make radio calls as appropriate. CA.IV.I.S3 Position flight controls and flaps for the existing conditions. CA.IV.I.S4 Clear the area; select appropriate takeoff path considering surface hazards and/or vessels and surface conditions. CA.IV.I.S5 Retract the water rudders as appropriate; advance the throttle smoothly to takeoff power. CA.IV.I.S6 Establish and maintain an appropriate planing attitude, directional control, and correct for porpoising, skipping, and increase in water drag. CA.IV.I.S7 Utilize appropriate techniques to lift seaplane from the water considering surface conditions. CA.IV.I.S8 Establish proper attitude/airspeed, and accelerate to V Y +/-5 knots during the climb. CA.IV.I.S9 Retract flaps after a positive rate of climb has been verified or in accordance with aircraft manufacturer's guidance. CA.IV.I.S10 Maintain V Y +/-5 knots to a safe maneuvering altitude. CA.IV.I.S11 Maintain directional control and proper wind-drift correction throughout takeoff and climb.
