34 V. Performance and Ground Reference Maneuvers Task A. Steep Turns 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 steep turns. Note: See Appendix 7: Aircraft, Equipment, and Operational Requirements & Limitations. Knowledge The applicant demonstrates understanding of: CA.V.A.K1 Purpose of steep turns. CA.V.A.K2 Aerodynamics associated with steep turns, to include: CA.V.A.K2a a. Coordinated and uncoordinated flight CA.V.A.K2b b. Overbanking tendencies CA.V.A.K2c c. Maneuvering speed, including impact of weight changes CA.V.A.K2d d. Accelerated stalls CA.V.A.K2e e. Rate and radius of turn CA.V.A.K2f f. Effect of bank angle on stalls CA.V.A.K3 Altitude control at various airspeeds. Risk Management The applicant demonstrates the ability to identify, assess and mitigate risks, encompassing: CA.V.A.R1 Failure to divide attention between airplane control and orientation. CA.V.A.R2 Collision hazards, to include aircraft, terrain, obstacles, and wires. CA.V.A.R3 Low altitude maneuvering/stall/spin. CA.V.A.R4 Distractions, loss of situational awareness, and/or improper task management. CA.V.A.R5 Failure to maintain coordinated flight. Skills The applicant demonstrates the ability to: CA.V.A.S1 Clear the area. CA.V.A.S2 Establish the manufacturer's recommended airspeed or, if not stated, a safe airspeed not to exceed V A . CA.V.A.S3 Roll into a coordinated 360° steep turn with approximately a 50° bank. CA.V.A.S4 Perform the Task in the opposite direction. CA.V.A.S5 Maintain the entry altitude ±100 feet, airspeed ±10 knots, bank ±5°; and roll out on the entry heading, ±10°.
