check for a positive rate of climb with airspeed at or below 120 knots, then
retract the gear; check landing lights off. Check and report "Three up and
Maintain airspeed of 120 knots and when established in the climb, start a right
SRT for 45º of heading change. Roll out using the onethird rule. Maintain
120 knots and climb for 1500 feet to the original altitude.
Two hundred feet prior to level off commence a transition to normal cruise
(150 KIAS). Trim left rudder, down elevator as airspeed increases. Two to
three knots prior to normal cruise airspeed, reduce power to approximately
650700 ftlbs and maintain 150 knots. Retrim.
Not crosschecking turn needle for initial standard rate turn.
Climbing instead of maintaining altitude during deceleration to 120 knots.
Descending prior to 120 knots.
Not crosschecking turn needle for standard rate turn during 210º turn.
Starting the one minute timing after completion of the 210º turn instead of at the
end of the 500 feet descent.
Becoming disoriented during 210° turn, resulting in over or undershooting heading.
Always check RMI for new heading prior to starting turn.
Not adding 2550 ftlbs of torque during 210º turn, thereby getting slow.
During Missed Approach, insufficient rudder, resulting in a left heading drift.
Turning on the Missed Approach prior to reporting "Three up and locked" or
established in the climb.
