Basic Instrument Maneuvers
Figure 11: SPLIT-S
Begin the maneuver at 180 KIAS, wing level, on heading. Pull the nose up to 10-15 degrees above the
horizon, reduce the power to idle and roll inverted using aileron and rudder. Gently but expeditiously pull
to optimum AOA. Maintain optimum AOA as your airspeed increases and maintain wings level and on
heading. Maintain optimum AOA until intercepting 4 gs and hold 4 gs for the remainder of the maneuver.
The maneuver is complete when you are in level flight going in the opposite direction.
