IX. Emergency Operations 55 Task F. Engine Failure After Liftoff (Simulated) (AMEL, AMES) References FAA-H-8083-2, FAA-H-8083-3; FAA-P-8740-66; POH/AFM Objective To determine that the applicant exhibits satisfactory knowledge, risk management, and skills associated with an engine failure after liftoff. Note: See Appendix 6: Safety of Flight and Appendix 7: Aircraft, Equipment, and Operational Requirements & Limitations. Knowledge The applicant demonstrates understanding of: CA.IX.F.K1 Factors affecting V MC . CA.IX.F.K2 V MC (red line), V YSE (blue line), and Vsse (safe single-engine speed). CA.IX.F.K3 Accelerate/stop and accelerate/go distances. CA.IX.F.K4 How to identify and correctly secure the inoperative engine. CA.IX.F.K5 Importance of drag reduction, to include propeller feathering, gear and flap retraction, proper bank angle into operating engine and inclinometer ball coordination. CA.IX.F.K6 Zero-thrust procedures. Risk Management The applicant demonstrates the ability to identify, assess and mitigate risks, encompassing: CA.IX.F.R1 Failure to plan for engine failure after liftoff. CA.IX.F.R2 Collision hazards, to include aircraft, terrain, obstacles, and wires. CA.IX.F.R3 Improper aircraft configuration. CA.IX.F.R4 Low altitude maneuvering/stall/spin. CA.IX.F.R5 Distractions, loss of situational awareness, and/or improper task management. Skills The applicant demonstrates the ability to: CA.IX.F.S1 Recognize a simulated engine failure, maintain control and utilize appropriate emergency procedures. CA.IX.F.S2 Establish V YSE ; if obstructions are present, establish V XSE or V MC +5 knots, whichever is greater, until obstructions are cleared. Then transition to V YSE . CA.IX.F.S3 Reduce drag by retracting landing gear and flaps as appropriate. CA.IX.F.S4 Simulate feathering the propeller on the inoperative engine (evaluator should then establish a zero-thrust on the inoperative engine). CA.IX.F.S5 Bank toward the operating engine as required for best performance. CA.IX.F.S6 Monitor operating engine and make adjustments as necessary. CA.IX.F.S7 Recognize the airplane's performance capabilities. If a climb is not possible at V YSE , maintain V YSE and return to the departure airport for landing, or initiate an approach to the most suitable landing area available. CA.IX.F.S8 Simulate securing the inoperative engine. CA.IX.F.S9 Maintain heading ±10°, and airspeed ±5 knots. CA.IX.F.S10 Complete the appropriate checklist.
