V. Performance and Ground Reference Maneuvers 38 Task E. Eights on Pylons (ASEL, ASES) References FAA-H-8083-2, FAA-H-8083-3 Objective To determine that the applicant exhibits satisfactory knowledge, risk management, and skills associated with eights on pylons. Note: See Appendix 7: Aircraft, Equipment, and Operational Requirements & Limitations. Knowledge The applicant demonstrates understanding of: CA.V.E.K1 Purpose of eights on pylons. CA.V.E.K2 Aerodynamics associated with the eights on pylons to include coordinated and uncoordinated flight. CA.V.E.K3 Pivotal altitude and factors that affect it. CA.V.E.K4 Effect of wind on ground track. CA.V.E.K5 Phases of the eights on pylons maneuver from entry to recovery. Risk Management The applicant demonstrates the ability to identify, assess and mitigate risks, encompassing: CA.V.E.R1 Failure to divide attention between airplane control and orientation. CA.V.E.R2 Collision hazards, to include aircraft, terrain, obstacles, and wires. CA.V.E.R3 Low altitude maneuvering/stall/spin. CA.V.E.R4 Distractions, loss of situational awareness, and/or improper task management. CA.V.E.R5 Failure to maintain coordinated flight. CA.V.E.R6 Failure to manage energy. CA.V.E.R7 Emergency landing considerations. Skills The applicant demonstrates the ability to: CA.V.E.S1 Clear the area. CA.V.E.S2 Determine the approximate pivotal altitude. CA.V.E.S3 Select suitable pylons that will permit straight-and-level flight between the pylons. CA.V.E.S4 Correctly enter the maneuver at the appropriate altitude and airspeed. CA.V.E.S5 Establish the correct bank angle for the conditions, not to exceed 40°. CA.V.E.S6 Apply corrections so that the line-of-sight reference line remains on the pylon. CA.V.E.S7 Divide attention between accurate, coordinated airplane control and outside visual references. CA.V.E.S8 Maintain pylon position using appropriate pivotal altitude, avoiding slips and skids.
