IV. Takeoffs, Landings, and Go-Arounds 30 Task K. Rough 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 rough water takeoff and climb. Note: If a rough water condition does not exist, the applicant must be evaluated by simulating the Task. Knowledge The applicant demonstrates understanding of: CA.IV.K.K1 Effects of atmospheric conditions, including wind, on takeoff and climb performance. CA.IV.K.K2 V X and V Y . CA.IV.K.K3 Appropriate aircraft configuration. CA.IV.K.K4 Appropriate use of rough water takeoff and climb technique. Risk Management The applicant demonstrates the ability to identify, assess and mitigate risks, encompassing: CA.IV.K.R1 Selection of takeoff path based on pilot capability, aircraft performance and limitations, available distance, and wind. CA.IV.K.R2 Effects of: CA.IV.K.R2a a. Crosswind CA.IV.K.R2b b. Wind shear CA.IV.K.R2c c. Tailwind CA.IV.K.R2d d. Wake turbulence CA.IV.K.R2e e. Water surface/condition CA.IV.K.R3 Abnormal operations, to include planning for: CA.IV.K.R3a a. Rejected takeoff criteria CA.IV.K.R3b b. Engine failure in takeoff/climb phase of flight CA.IV.K.R4 Collision hazards, to include aircraft, terrain, obstacles, and wires. CA.IV.K.R5 Low altitude maneuvering/stall/spin. CA.IV.K.R6 Distractions, loss of situational awareness, and/or improper task management. CA.IV.K.R7 Failure to confirm gear position in an amphibious aircraft. Skills The applicant demonstrates the ability to: CA.IV.K.S1 Complete the appropriate checklist. CA.IV.K.S2 Make radio calls as appropriate. CA.IV.K.S3 Verify assigned/correct takeoff path. CA.IV.K.S4 Ascertain wind direction with or without visible wind direction indicators. CA.IV.K.S5 Position flight controls and flaps for the existing conditions. CA.IV.K.S6 Clear the area, select an appropriate takeoff path considering wind, swells, surface hazards and/or vessels. CA.IV.K.S7 Retract the water rudders as appropriate; advance the throttle smoothly to takeoff power. CA.IV.K.S8 Establish and maintain an appropriate planing attitude, directional control, and correct for porpoising, skipping, and increase in water drag. CA.IV.K.S9 Lift off at minimum airspeed and accelerate to V Y , +/- 5 knots before leaving ground effect. CA.IV.K.S10 Retract flaps after a positive rate of climb has been verified or in accordance with aircraft manufacturer's guidance. CA.IV.K.S11 Maintain V Y +/ 5 knots to a safe maneuvering altitude. CA.IV.K.S12 Maintain directional control and proper wind-drift correction throughout takeoff and climb.
