IV. Takeoffs, Landings, and Go-Arounds 32 Task M. Power-Off 180° Accuracy Approach and Landing (ASEL, ASES) References FAA-H-8083-2, FAA-H-8083-3; POH/AFM Objective To determine that the applicant exhibits satisfactory knowledge, risk management, and skills associated with a power-off 180° accuracy approach and landing. Note: See Appendix 7: Aircraft, Equipment, and Operational Requirements & Limitations. Knowledge The applicant demonstrates understanding of: CA.IV.M.K1 A stabilized approach, to include energy management concepts. CA.IV.M.K2 Effects of atmospheric conditions, including wind, on approach and landing. CA.IV.M.K3 Wind correction techniques on approach and landing. CA.IV.M.K4 Purpose of power-off approach. Risk Management The applicant demonstrates the ability to identify, assess and mitigate risks, encompassing: CA.IV.M.R1 Selection of runway or approach path and touchdown area based on pilot capability, aircraft performance and limitations, available distance, and wind. CA.IV.M.R2 Effects of: CA.IV.M.R2a a. Crosswind CA.IV.M.R2b b. Wind shear CA.IV.M.R2c c. Tailwind CA.IV.M.R2d d. Wake turbulence CA.IV.M.R2e e. Runway surface/condition CA.IV.M.R3 Abnormal operations, to include planning for rejected landing and go-around. CA.IV.M.R4 Collision hazards, to include aircraft, terrain, obstacles, and wires. CA.IV.M.R5 Low altitude maneuvering/stall/spin. CA.IV.M.R6 Distractions, loss of situational awareness, and/or improper task management. CA.IV.M.R7 Forward slip operations, including fuel flowage, tail stalls with flaps, and lack of airspeed control. Skills The applicant demonstrates the ability to: CA.IV.M.S1 Complete the appropriate checklist. CA.IV.M.S2 Make radio calls as appropriate. CA.IV.M.S3 Plan and follow a flightpath to the selected landing area considering altitude, wind, terrain, and obstructions. CA.IV.M.S4 Position airplane on downwind leg, parallel to landing runway. CA.IV.M.S5 Correctly configure the airplane. CA.IV.M.S6 As necessary, correlate crosswind with direction of forward slip and transition to side slip for landing. CA.IV.M.S7 Touch down within -0/+200 feet from the specified touchdown point with no side drift, minimum float, and with the airplane's longitudinal axis aligned with and over the runway centerline.
