IV. Takeoffs, Landings, and Go-Arounds 29 Task J. Glassy Water Approach and Landing (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 approach and landing. 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.J.K1 A stabilized approach, to include energy management concepts. CA.IV.J.K2 Wind correction techniques on approach and landing. CA.IV.J.K3 When and why glassy water techniques are used. CA.IV.J.K4 How a glassy water approach and landing is executed. Risk Management The applicant demonstrates the ability to identify, assess and mitigate risks, encompassing: CA.IV.J.R1 Selection of approach path and touchdown area based on pilot capability, aircraft performance and limitations, available distance, and wind. CA.IV.J.R2 Water surface/condition. CA.IV.J.R3 Abnormal operations, to include planning for rejected landing and go-around. CA.IV.J.R4 Collision hazards, to include aircraft, terrain, obstacles, and wires. CA.IV.J.R5 Low altitude maneuvering/stall/spin. CA.IV.J.R6 Distractions, loss of situational awareness, and/or improper task management. CA.IV.J.R7 Failure to confirm gear position in an amphibious aircraft. Skills The applicant demonstrates the ability to: CA.IV.J.S1 Complete the appropriate checklist. CA.IV.J.S2 Make radio calls as appropriate. CA.IV.J.S3 Scan the landing area for traffic and obstructions. CA.IV.J.S4 Consider landing surface, obstructions, and select the proper landing path. CA.IV.J.S5 Establish the recommended approach and landing configuration and airspeed, and adjust pitch attitude and power as required to maintain a stabilized approach. CA.IV.J.S6 Maintain manufacturer's published airspeed, or in its absence, not more than 1.3 V SO +/- 5 knots. CA.IV.J.S7 Make smooth, timely, and correct power and control adjustments to maintain proper pitch attitude and rate of descent to touchdown. CA.IV.J.S8 Contact the water in the proper pitch attitude, and slow to idle taxi speed. CA.IV.J.S9 Maintain crosswind correction and directional control throughout the approach and landing.
