Lazy Eights (ASEL, ASES) References FAA-H-8083-3 Objective To determine that the applicant exhibits satisfactory knowledge, risk management, and skills associated with lazy eights. Note: See Appendix 7: Aircraft, Equipment, and Operational Requirements & Limitations. Knowledge The applicant demonstrates understanding of: CA.V.D.K1 Purpose of lazy eights. CA.V.D.K2 Aerodynamics associated with lazy eights, to include coordinated and uncoordinated flight. CA.V.D.K3 Performance and airspeed limitations. CA.V.D.K4 Phases of the lazy eight maneuver from entry to recovery. Risk Management The applicant demonstrates the ability to identify, assess and mitigate risks, encompassing: CA.V.D.R1 Failure to divide attention between airplane control and orientation. CA.V.D.R2 Collision hazards, to include aircraft, terrain, obstacles, and wires. CA.V.D.R3 Low altitude maneuvering/stall/spin. CA.V.D.R4 Distractions, loss of situational awareness, and/or improper task management. CA.V.D.R5 Failure to maintain coordinated flight. CA.V.D.R6 Failure to manage energy. CA.V.D.R7 Accelerated stalls. Skills The applicant demonstrates the ability to: CA.V.D.S1 Clear the area. CA.V.D.S2 Select an altitude that will allow the maneuver to be performed no lower than 1,500 feet AGL. CA.V.D.S3 Establish the recommended entry configuration, power, and airspeed. CA.V.D.S4 Maintain coordinated flight throughout the maneuver. CA.V.D.S5 Complete the maneuver in accordance with the following: CA.V.D.S5a a. Approximately 30° bank at the steepest point CA.V.D.S5b b. Constant change of pitch and roll rate and airspeed CA.V.D.S5c c. Altitude at 180° point, ±100 feet from entry altitude CA.V.D.S5d d. Airspeed at the 180° point, ±10 knots from entry airspeed CA.V.D.S5e e. Heading at the 180° point, ±10 degrees CA.V.D.S6 Continue the maneuver through the number of symmetrical loops specified, then resume straight-and-level flight.
