DETERMINE the duty runway at your landing site.
DELIVER a simulated voice report over the ICS to the instructor. Include the
aircraft identification, situation, position and intentions (ISPI). Preface the call with
"PAN-PAN, PAN-PAN, PAN-PAN." The instructor will make the appropriate
radio call to enter the outlying field as required by local course rules.
REDUCE power to 205 ft-lbs. torque and retrim for the 100-knot descent once
sufficient altitude is achieved to make the field.
Use the experience and judgment gained in practicing the HAPL to
position the aircraft for the 100-knot descent into high key.
Depending upon which direction you are flying from, the "final" into
the high key may be of different lengths. Plan your approach so that
you have some sort of "final" to set up for a good high key.
If excess altitude was gained during the climb, lower the gear early,
slip or "S" turn to increase rate of descent.
LOWER the landing gear prior to high key (if not previously lowered to dissipate
If the gear must be lowered manually (due to fumes, electrical
failure, etc.), begin in sufficient time to hand crank the gear prior to
REPORT each item of the Landing Checklist to the instructor (once gear is
If approaching high key in 100-knot glide and you determine that
you are below profile, add power to maximum allowable, raise the
nose and climb at 100 KIAS to regain profile.
At HIGH KEY: Turn towards the crosswind position using angle of bank as
necessary (10-15 degrees under calm wind conditions). Maintain 100 KIAS. Make
appropriate radio call.
At LOW KEY: Vary the angle of bank as necessary so as to arrive at a ⅔ wingtip
distance abeam the intended point of landing (this ⅔ WTD is valid only if at the
proper altitude). Level the wings momentarily to accurately check your position
abeam. Perform the low key voice report as required by local course rules.
