A-20 Operational Requirements, Limitations, & Task Information IV. Takeoffs, Landings, and Go-Arounds Task M. Power-Off 180° Accuracy Approach and Landing (ASEL, ASES) This maneuver may be combined with Area of Operation V., Task B, Steep Spiral, at the evaluator's discretion. V. Performance and Ground Reference Maneuvers For ASEL and ASES applicants, the evaluator must choose: • Task A, Steep Turns, or Task B, Steep Spiral; • Task C, Chandelles, or Task D, Lazy Eights; and • Task E, Eights on Pylons. Task B. Steep Spiral (ASEL, ASES) This maneuver may be combined with Area of Operation IV., Task M, Power-Off 180° Accuracy Approach and Landing, at the evaluator's discretion. VII. Slow Flight and Stalls Task A. Maneuvering During Slow Flight Evaluation criteria for this Task should recognize that environmental factors (e.g., turbulence) may result in a momentary activation of stall warning indicators such as the stall horn. If the applicant recognizes the stall warning indication and promptly makes an appropriate correction, a momentary activation does not constitute unsatisfactory performance on this Task. As with other Tasks, unsatisfactory performance would arise from an applicant's continual deviation from the standard, lack of correction, and/or lack of recognition. Task B. Power-Off Stalls Evaluation criteria for a recovery from an approach to stall should not mandate a predetermined value for altitude loss and should not mandate maintaining altitude during recovery. Proper evaluation criteria should consider the multitude of external and internal variables which affect the recovery altitude. Task C. Power-On Stalls Evaluation criteria for a recovery from an approach to stall should not mandate a predetermined value for altitude loss and should not mandate maintaining altitude during recovery. Proper evaluation criteria should consider the multitude of external and internal variables which affect the recovery altitude. Task D. Accelerated Stalls In a multiengine airplane the power should be set so that the airspeed is at or below the design maneuvering speed (VA) for the airplane. The pilot should promptly initiate the stall recovery procedure at the first indication of a stall. During the recovery, angle of attack should be reduced first, followed by rolling wings level prior to the addition of power to alleviate the risk of asymmetric thrust while in a turn. A pilot should delay application of high power if the aircraft is not above V MC and responding as expected. Evaluation criteria for a recovery from an approach to stall should not mandate a predetermined value for altitude loss and should not mandate maintaining altitude during recovery. Proper evaluation criteria should consider the multitude of external and internal variables which affect the recovery altitude. IX. Emergency Operations Task E. Engine Failure During Takeoff Before V MC (Simulated) (AMEL, AMES) Engine failure (simulated) during takeoff should be accomplished prior to reaching 50 percent of the calculated V MC .
