Note: See Appendix 6: Safety of Flight and Appendix 7: Aircraft, Equipment, and Operational Requirements & Limitations. Knowledge The applicant demonstrates understanding of: CA.IX.G.K1 Factors affecting V MC . CA.IX.G.K2 V MC (red line) and V YSE (blue line). CA.IX.G.K3 How to identify and secure the inoperative engine. CA.IX.G.K4 Importance of drag reduction, to include propeller feathering, gear and flap retraction, proper bank angle into operating engine and inclinometer ball coordination. CA.IX.G.K5 Feathering and zero-thrust procedures. Risk Management The applicant demonstrates the ability to identify, assess and mitigate risks, encompassing: CA.IX.G.R1 Failure to plan for engine failure inflight or during an approach. CA.IX.G.R2 Collision hazards, to include aircraft, terrain, obstacles, and wires. CA.IX.G.R3 Improper aircraft configuration. CA.IX.G.R4 Low altitude maneuvering/stall/spin. CA.IX.G.R5 Distractions, loss of situational awareness, and/or improper task management. CA.IX.G.R6 Possible single-engine go-around. Skills The applicant demonstrates the ability to: CA.IX.G.S1 Recognize an engine failure and take appropriate action, maintain control, and utilize the manufacturer's recommended emergency procedures. CA.IX.G.S2 Bank toward the operating engine as required for best performance. CA.IX.G.S3 Monitor the operating engine and make adjustments as necessary. CA.IX.G.S4 Maintain the manufacturer's recommended approach airspeed +/-5, and landing configuration with a stabilized approach until landing is assured. CA.IX.G.S5 Make smooth, timely, and correct control applications during round out and touchdown. CA.IX.G.S6 Touch down on the first one-third of available runway, with no drift and the airplane's longitudinal axis aligned with and over the runway center. CA.IX.G.S7 Maintain crosswind correction and directional control throughout the approach and landing sequence. CA.IX.G.S8 Complete the appropriate checklist.
