IV. Takeoffs, Landings, and Go-Arounds 31 Task L. Rough 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 rough water approach and landing. 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.L.K1 A stabilized approach, to include energy management concepts. CA.IV.L.K2 Effects of atmospheric conditions, including wind, on approach and landing performance. CA.IV.L.K3 Wind correction techniques on approach and landing. CA.IV.L.K4 When and why rough water techniques are used. CA.IV.L.K5 How a rough water approach and landing is executed. Risk Management The applicant demonstrates the ability to identify, assess and mitigate risks, encompassing: CA.IV.L.R1 Selection of approach path and touchdown area based on pilot capability, aircraft performance and limitations, available distance, and wind. CA.IV.L.R2 Effects of: CA.IV.L.R2a a. Crosswind CA.IV.L.R2b b. Wind shear CA.IV.L.R2c c. Tailwind CA.IV.L.R2d d. Wake turbulence CA.IV.L.R2e e. Water surface/condition CA.IV.L.R3 Abnormal operations, to include planning for rejected landing and go-around. CA.IV.L.R4 Collision hazards, to include aircraft, terrain, obstacles, and wires. CA.IV.L.R5 Low altitude maneuvering stall/spin. CA.IV.L.R6 Distractions, loss of situational awareness, and/or improper task management. CA.IV.L.R7 Failure to confirm gear position in an amphibious aircraft. Skills The applicant demonstrates the ability to: CA.IV.L.S1 Complete the appropriate checklist. CA.IV.L.S2 Make radio calls as appropriate. CA.IV.L.S3 Ensure the aircraft is aligned with the correct/assigned waterway. CA.IV.L.S4 Scan the landing area for traffic and obstructions. CA.IV.L.S5 Consider wind conditions, landing surface, obstructions, and select the proper landing path. CA.IV.L.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.L.S7 Maintain manufacturer's published approach airspeed, or in its absence not more than 1.3 V SO +/-5 knots with wind gust factor applied. CA.IV.L.S8 Maintain crosswind correction and directional control throughout the approach and landing sequence. CA.IV.L.S9 Make smooth, timely, and correct power and control adjustments to maintain proper pitch attitude and rate of descent to touchdown. CA.IV.L.S10 Contact the water in the proper pitch attitude, considering the type of rough water.
