57 X. Multiengine Operations Task A. Maneuvering with One Engine Inoperative (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 one engine inoperative. Note: See Appendix 6: Safety of Flight and Appendix 7: Aircraft Requirements and Limitations. Knowledge The applicant demonstrates understanding of: CA.X.A.K1 Factors affecting V MC . CA.X.A.K2 V MC (red line) and V YSE (blue line). CA.X.A.K3 How to identify and secure the inoperative engine. CA.X.A.K4 Importance of drag reduction, to include propeller feathering, gear and flap retraction, proper bank angle into operating engine and inclinometer ball coordination. CA.X.A.K5 Feathering and zero-thrust procedures. Risk Management The applicant demonstrates the ability to identify, assess and mitigate risks, encompassing: CA.X.A.R1 Failure to plan for engine failure during flight. CA.X.A.R2 Collision hazards, to include aircraft, terrain, obstacles, and wires. CA.X.A.R3 Improper aircraft configuration. CA.X.A.R4 Low altitude maneuvering/stall/spin. CA.X.A.R5 Distractions, loss of situational awareness, and/or improper task management. Skills The applicant demonstrates the ability to: CA.X.A.S1 Recognize a simulated engine failure, maintain control, manufacturer's memory item procedures and utilize appropriate emergency procedures. CA.X.A.S2 Set the engine controls, identify and verify the inoperative engine, and feather appropriate propeller. CA.X.A.S3 Reduce drag by establishing and maintaining a bank toward the operating engine and proper inclinometer ball displacement toward the operating engine as required for best performance in straight-and-level flight. CA.X.A.S4 Monitor the operating engine and make necessary adjustments. CA.X.A.S5 Demonstrate coordinated flight with one engine inoperative (propeller feathered). CA.X.A.S6 Restart the inoperative engine using manufacturer's restart procedures. CA.X.A.S7 Maintain altitude ±100 feet or minimum sink as appropriate and heading ±10°. CA.X.A.S8 Complete the appropriate checklist.
