If an airstart is attempted and unsuccessful, sufficient battery power
may not be available to lower the flaps or gear electrically.
If airstart is not attempted or is unsuccessful:
No landing site available and altitude permits - BAIL OUT.
If forced landing is to be continued:
Condition lever - fuel off.
Emergency fuel shutoff handle - PULL.
MAYDAY (UHF), 7700 (transponder) - BROADCAST.
Enter ELP at or below high key.
Gear and Flaps - AS REQUIRED. Conduct the Landing Checklist and report it to
your instructor. Once the field is made, lower the flaps and conduct the Landing
Checklist. If conducted to a hard-surfaced field, lower the gear when the field is
made. Then lower the flaps (to reduce the stall speed) prior to touchdown, winds
Canopy - EMERGENCY OPEN. Remember that with the prop feathered
(simulated or real), the aircraft will have a tendency to float considerably, compared
to a normal landing transition. The canopy, once opened, will create some drag,
increasing the rate of descent slightly. Plan accordingly.
Battery Switch - OFF
Failure to establish and maintain a 100-knot glide.
Failure to analyze engine condition and use proper procedures for the power loss
Failure to clean up aircraft.
Lowering gear instead of flaps when landing in unprepared field.
Slow selection of field.
Failure to lower flaps when field is made.
Failure to use a slip when high during approach and on final.
Excessive airspeed on final.
LOW ALTITUDE POWER LOSS FROM THE PATTERN
Description. The simulated LAPL in the pattern (LAPL(P))will be initiated above 800
feet AGL by the instructor reducing the power to 205 ft-lbs. torque and informing the student
there is a simulated power loss.
