Do not chase the airspeed indicator, altimeter, or VSI as this could result in unusual
aircraft attitudes and excessive g loads.
In order to minimize the g imposed on the aircraft and pilot, use the smallest pitch
corrections possible to maintain level flight.
Be prepared for pitot static failure due to icing.
MINIMUM FUEL ADVISORY
You are required to advise ATC when your fuel status has reached a state where, upon reaching your
destination, you cannot accept any undue delay. This advisory does not reflect an emergency situation,
but it does indicate that an emergency situation could develop as the result of any delays in approach
handling. It will not result in special handling or a traffic priority. ATC will ensure that you are handled so
as to avoid any delays requiring excess fuel consumption.
If your fuel state reaches the point that you need special handling and/or priority handling (emergency
fuel) to land safely, you should declare emergency fuel to ATC. ATC will then provide priority handling to
assist you in expediting your approach and landing.
An aircraft emergency occurring during a cross-country flight may present several problems in addition to
those encountered on local flights. Complicating factors include; strange fields, long distances, unknown
weather conditions, and unfamiliar terrain. Thorough knowledge of emergency procedures and careful
preflight planning will reduce, but not eliminate, these complications.
If an immediate landing is required, use any runway of suitable length. On a short runway, land as close
as possible to the runway threshold and use maximum braking.
If an ejection occurs, search and rescue (SAR) capabilities may be limited. You may find yourself in a
survival situation for an extended period of time, and your preflight preparation should include this
