V. Performance and Ground Reference Maneuvers 36 Task C. Chandelles (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 chandelles. Note: See Appendix 7: Aircraft, Equipment, and Operational Requirements & Limitations. Knowledge The applicant demonstrates understanding of: CA.V.C.K1 Purpose of chandelles. CA.V.C.K2 Aerodynamics associated with chandelles, to include: CA.V.C.K2a a. Coordinated and uncoordinated flight CA.V.C.K2b b. Overbanking tendencies CA.V.C.K2c c. Maneuvering speed, including impact of weight changes CA.V.C.K2d d. Accelerated stalls CA.V.C.K3 Positioning of flaps and gear for maximum performance climb. CA.V.C.K4 Proper pitch control required for continually decreasing airspeed. Risk Management The applicant demonstrates the ability to identify, assess and mitigate risks, encompassing: CA.V.C.R1 Failure to divide attention between airplane control and orientation. CA.V.C.R2 Collision hazards, to include aircraft, terrain, obstacles, and wires. CA.V.C.R3 Low altitude maneuvering/stall/spin. CA.V.C.R4 Distractions, loss of situational awareness, and/or improper task management. CA.V.C.R5 Failure to maintain coordinated flight. CA.V.C.R6 Failure to manage energy. CA.V.C.R7 Rate and radius of turn with confined area operations. Skills The applicant demonstrates the ability to: CA.V.C.S1 Clear the area. CA.V.C.S2 Select an altitude that will allow the maneuver to be performed no lower than 1,500 feet above ground level (AGL). CA.V.C.S3 Establish the appropriate entry configuration, power, and airspeed. CA.V.C.S4 Establish the angle of bank at approximately 30°. CA.V.C.S5 Simultaneously apply power and pitch to maintain a smooth, coordinated climbing turn, in either direction, to the 90° point, with a constant bank and continually decreasing airspeed. CA.V.C.S6 Begin a coordinated constant rate rollout from the 90° point to the 180° point maintaining power and a constant pitch attitude. CA.V.C.S7 Complete rollout at the 180° point, ±10° just above a stall airspeed, and maintaining that airspeed momentarily avoiding a stall. CA.V.C.S8 Resume a straight-and-level flight with minimum loss of altitude.
