43 VII. Slow Flight and Stalls Task A. Maneuvering During Slow Flight 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 maneuvering during slow flight. Note: See Appendix 6: Safety of Flight and Appendix 7: Aircraft, Equipment, and Operational Requirements & Limitations. Knowledge The applicant demonstrates understanding of: CA.VII.A.K1 Aerodynamics associated with slow flight in various aircraft configurations, to include the relationship between angle of attack, airspeed, load factor, power setting, aircraft weight and center of gravity, aircraft attitude, and yaw effects. Risk Management The applicant demonstrates the ability to identify, assess and mitigate risks, encompassing: CA.VII.A.R1 Inadvertent slow flight and flight with a stall warning, which could lead to loss of control. CA.VII.A.R2 Range and limitations of stall warning indicators (e.g., aircraft buffet, stall horn, etc.). CA.VII.A.R3 Failure to maintain coordinated flight. CA.VII.A.R4 Effect of environmental elements on aircraft performance. (e.g., turbulence, microbursts, and high density altitude). CA.VII.A.R5 Collision hazards, to include aircraft, terrain, obstacles, and wires. CA.VII.A.R6 Distractions, loss of situational awareness, and/or improper task management. Skills The applicant demonstrates the ability to: CA.VII.A.S1 Clear the area. CA.VII.A.S2 Select an entry altitude that will allow the Task to be completed no lower than 1,500 feet AGL (ASEL, ASES) or 3,000 feet AGL (AMEL, AMES). CA.VII.A.S3 Establish and maintain an airspeed at which any further increase in angle of attack, increase in load factor, or reduction in power, would result in a stall warning (e.g., aircraft buffet, stall horn, etc.). CA.VII.A.S4 Accomplish coordinated straight-and-level flight, turns, climbs, and descents with landing gear and flap configurations specified by the evaluator without a stall warning (e.g., aircraft buffet, stall horn, etc.). CA.VII.A.S5 Maintain the specified altitude, ±50 feet; specified heading, ±10°; airspeed +5/-0 knots; and specified angle of bank, ±5°.
