Either condition mentioned in i or ii constitutes an extreme nose
high attitude. If the airspeed is less than 100 knots, the nose must
be above the horizon; otherwise, it is simply nose low.
Crosscheck turn needle.
Using aileron and rudder, roll the aircraft toward, not necessarily to, 90º of
bank, in the direction of the turn needle.
Fly the nose of the aircraft through the horizon, using bottom rudder as
As the nose passes the horizon, roll wings level (do not pull back stick during
this rollavoid a rolling pullout), center the ball and maintain balanced flight.
vii. Raise the nose to the level flight attitude.
(a) Not crosschecking airspeed. A pitch attitude of 10º nose up and an
airspeed of 95 knots is an extreme nose high attitude.
(b) Continuing the roll to 90º AOB, even though the nose has passed the
(c) Allowing the nose to rise while rolling wings level, thus effecting a
