V. Performance and Ground Reference Maneuvers 35 Task B. Steep Spiral (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 steep spirals. Note: See Appendix 7: Aircraft, Equipment, and Operational Requirements & Limitations. Knowledge The applicant demonstrates understanding of: CA.V.B.K1 Purpose of steep spirals. CA.V.B.K2 Maintaining a constant radius about a point. CA.V.B.K3 Effects of wind on ground track and relation to a ground reference point. Risk Management The applicant demonstrates the ability to identify, assess and mitigate risks, encompassing: CA.V.B.R1 Failure to divide attention between airplane control and orientation. CA.V.B.R2 Collision hazards, to include aircraft, terrain, obstacles, and wires. CA.V.B.R3 Low altitude maneuvering/stall/spin. CA.V.B.R4 Distractions, loss of situational awareness, and/or improper task management. CA.V.B.R5 Failure to maintain coordinated flight. CA.V.B.R6 Effects of wind. CA.V.B.R7 Airframe and/or airspeed limitations. Skills The applicant demonstrates the ability to: CA.V.B.S1 Clear the area. CA.V.B.S2 Select an altitude sufficient to continue through a series of at least three 360° turns. CA.V.B.S3 Establish and maintain a steep spiral, not to exceed 60° angle of bank, to maintain a constant radius about a suitable ground reference point. CA.V.B.S4 Apply wind drift correction to track a constant radius circle around selected reference point with bank not to exceed 60° at steepest point in turn. CA.V.B.S5 Divide attention between airplane control and ground track, while maintaining coordinated flight. CA.V.B.S6 Maintain the specified airspeed, ±10 knots, rolls out toward object or specified heading, ±10°.
