X. Multiengine Operations 60 Task D. Instrument Approach and Landing with an Inoperative Engine (Simulated) (by Reference to Instruments) (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 executing a published instrument approach with one engine inoperative. Note: See Appendix 6: Safety of Flight and Appendix 7: Aircraft, Equipment, and Operational Requirements & Limitations. Knowledge The applicant demonstrates understanding of: CA.X.D.K1 Instrument approach procedures with one engine inoperative. Risk Management The applicant demonstrates the ability to identify, assess, and mitigate risks, encompassing: CA.X.D.R1 Failure to plan for engine failure during approach and landing. CA.X.D.R2 Distractions, loss of situational awareness, and/or improper task management. CA.X.D.R3 Single-engine performance. Skills The applicant demonstrates the ability to: CA.X.D.S1 Recognize engine failure, set the engine controls, reduce drag, identify and verify the inoperative engine, and feather inoperative engine propeller. CA.X.D.S2 Reduce drag by establishing and maintaining a bank angle and inclinometer ball displacement toward the operating engine and configuring the aircraft, as required for best performance in straight-and-level flight and during the approach phase. CA.X.D.S3 Follow the manufacturer's prescribed checklists for securing the inoperative engine. CA.X.D.S4 Monitor the operating engine and make necessary adjustments. CA.X.D.S5 Request and follow an actual or a simulated ATC clearance for an instrument approach. CA.X.D.S6 Maintain altitude within 100 feet, airspeed within ±10 knots if within the aircraft's capability, and heading ±10°. CA.X.D.S7 Establish a rate of descent that will ensure arrival at the MDA or DH/DA with the airplane in a position from which a descent to a landing on the intended runway can be made, either straight in or circling as appropriate. CA.X.D.S8 On final approach segment, maintain vertical and lateral guidance within ¾-scale deflection. CA.X.D.S9 Avoid loss of aircraft control, or to attempt flight contrary to the operating limitations of the aircraft (i.e., the engine-inoperative limits). CA.X.D.S10 Comply with the published criteria for the aircraft approach category when circling. CA.X.D.S11 Complete landing and the appropriate manufacturer's checklist.
