Simulate condition lever - FEATHER. The instructor will simulate feather by
advancing the power to 205 ftlbs. torque to simulate actual aircraft performance
with a dead engine and a feathered propeller.
Landing Site - SELECT. LOOK for the best available field and report your
intended landing site to your instructor.
Harness - LOCKED. Check and report harness locked.
If on the upwind or early in the crosswind turn, do not try to turn
back to the runway from which you just departed. Making a
forced landing straight ahead with the aircraft under control affords
a much higher likelihood of survival than an uncontrolled crash.
Depending upon your altitude you may be able to reach an off-duty
runway if it is forward of the wings.
Not lowering the nose to maintain safe flying airspeed - 100 KIAS.
Not feathering prop (simulated).
Not cleaning aircraft.
Failure to lower flaps when field is made.
Poor field selections.
Failure to intercept ELP Profile when possible.
Getting too verbose with "MAYDAY" call. Fly the aircraft; be brief with the call.
PRACTICE PRECAUTIONARY EMERGENCY LANDING
Description. Utilize the PEL procedure to ensure that a safe landing at a paved field can
be made if indications of an impending engine failure should occur. A PEL will be performed
any time engine reliability is questionable or there are indications of impending engine failure.
General. The procedures for the PPEL are basically the same as the actual PEL. The
PPEL will be initiated by the instructor informing the student of a simulated condition
requiring that a PEL be performed. Indications of an impending failure or power loss could be
excessive vibration, smoke or fumes, chip detector annunciator light, fuel leaks or siphoning,
prop malfunction or any other condition listed in NATOPS Chapter Five requiring that you
land as soon as possible due to impending engine/airframe problems.
