With gear up and landing lights on, the master caution light will
illuminate as a reminder to secure the landing lights.
BASIC APPROACH CONFIGURATION MANEUVER
At the completion of the penetration pattern, we further simulate an Instrument Approach
by transitioning to the Basic Approach Configuration (BAC) and then executing a Missed
Approach. The Basic Approach Configuration is performed by:
Power to 450 ftlbs, check airspeed below 150 knots, and lower the gear. Add power
to 650 700 ft-lbs.
Adjust the nose to the BAC level flight attitude (approximately 2º nose up), retrim
and maintain 120 knots.
Perform the Landing Checklist down to the flaps, reporting each item to your
instructor. Check landing lights on.
Execute the Missed Approach when directed by your instructor by:
Adding power to 1015 ftlbs, monitor ITT and simultaneously add right rudder.
Simultaneously raise the nose to a positive climbing attitude (68 degrees nose up).
Check for a positive rate of climb and airspeed at or below 120 knots and raise the
gear; checking landing lights off. Check and report three up and locked.
Maintain climb airspeed. Retrim.
Once established at 120 knots, roll smoothly using a standard rate turn in the direction
specified by your instructor, for 45º of heading change. Lead the rollout by one-third
Climb 1000 feet at climb airspeed.
Two hundred feet prior to level off, commence a transition to normal cruise (150
knots). Trim left rudder, down elevator as airspeed increases. Two to three knots
prior to normal cruise airspeed, reduce power to approximately 600650 ftlbs and
maintain 150 knots. Retrim as required. Note, the normal cruise power setting is less
at low altitude.
The Missed Approach is complete when established 45º from original heading, level
1000 feet above original altitude, and in normal cruise configuration.
