X. Multiengine Operations 58 Task B. V MC Demonstration (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 a V MC demonstration. Note: See Appendix 6: Safety of Flight and Appendix 7: Aircraft Requirements and Limitations. Knowledge The applicant demonstrates understanding of: CA.X.B.K1 Factors affecting V MC and how V MC differs from stall speed (V S ). CA.X.B.K2 V MC (red line), V YSE (blue line), and V SSE (safe single-engine speed). CA.X.B.K3 Cause of loss of directional control at airspeeds below V MC . CA.X.B.K4 Proper procedures for maneuver entry and safe recovery. Risk Management The applicant demonstrates the ability to identify, assess and mitigate risks, encompassing: CA.X.B.R1 Improper aircraft configuration. CA.X.B.R2 Maneuvering with one engine inoperative. CA.X.B.R3 Distractions, loss of situational awareness, and/or improper task management. Skills The applicant demonstrates the ability to: CA.X.B.S1 Configure the airplane in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendation, in the absence of the manufacturer's recommendations, then at V SSE /V YSE , as appropriate: CA.X.B.S1a a. Landing gear retracted CA.X.B.S1b b. Flaps set for takeoff CA.X.B.S1c c. Cowl flaps set for takeoff CA.X.B.S1d d. Trim set for takeoff CA.X.B.S1e e. Propellers set for high RPM CA.X.B.S1f f. Power on critical engine reduced to idle CA.X.B.S1g g. Power on operating engine set to takeoff or maximum available power CA.X.B.S2 Establish a single-engine climb attitude with the airspeed at approximately 10 knots above V SSE . CA.X.B.S3 Establish a bank angle not to exceed 5° toward the operating engine, as required for best performance and controllability. CA.X.B.S4 Increase the pitch attitude slowly to reduce the airspeed at approximately 1 knot per second while applying rudder pressure to maintain directional control until full rudder is applied. CA.X.B.S5 Recognize indications of loss of directional control, stall warning, or buffet. CA.X.B.S6 Recover promptly by simultaneously reducing power sufficiently on the operating engine while decreasing the angle of attack as necessary to regain airspeed and directional control. Recovery should not be attempted by increasing the power on the simulated failed engine. CA.X.B.S7 Recover within 20° of entry heading. CA.X.B.S8 Advance power smoothly on operating engine and accelerate to V SSE /V YSE , as appropriate, +/-5 knots, during recovery.
