2. When executing a PEL with the EPL, exercise caution in power
application to prevent a compressor stall. BETA shall not be used
with the EPL engaged.
Not turning towards the nearest paved field prior to starting a climb. Remember,
the first step is to TURN towards THE NEAREST PAVED FIELD.
Poor judgment and planning to arrive at high key (including climbing excessively,
thereby delaying entry into the ELP).
Late or insufficient power additions to keep the aircraft in the ELP profile, i.e.,
"driving around the pattern" with 400-500 ft-lbs. of torque. Whenever low in a
PEL, use power immediately and judiciously. Remember, the engine may give you
only a second or two burst of power; so use power whenever you are low in a PEL.
Holding the flaps instead of adding power when the aircraft is below the ELP
Excessive angle of bank off high key, resulting in a high and close low key.
PRECAUTIONARY EMERGENCY LANDING FROM THE PATTERN
Description. Utilize PEL procedure if indications of an impending engine failure occur
while in the landing pattern.
General. The same indications of an impending engine failure as discussed in the PPEL
may occur in the landing pattern. This maneuver affords the opportunity for the student to
practice intercepting the ELP at low key.
The PPEL in the pattern will be initiated at or above 500 feet AGL by the instructor informing
the student that he has a simulated condition requiring that a practice PEL be performed.
(Example: "You have a simulated chip light.") At this time, the student would execute the
This simulated PEL should not be initiated until proper interval with
both PPEL(P) and touch-and-go traffic is obtained.
TURN towards the nearest suitable runway. Your first consideration is an off-duty
runway. If the pattern is extended and/or the winds are calm, the nearest suitable
runway may be the reciprocal of the runway the aircraft just departed. The
instructor will then direct which runway will be used. Practice PELs in the pattern
must conform with local course rules. The instructor will make the appropriate call
to the Tower/RDO/crash crew.
