attitude (0 degrees) in order to counteract the aircraft's tendency to gain altitude as
the flaps extend. Trim right rudder, nose up as the aircraft decelerates to maintain
altitude and heading. Approaching 100 KIAS, advance the power to 700750 ft
Check the landing gear and flaps full down and report: "Gear down, flaps down,
Landing Checklist complete."
Using a StandardRate Turn make a level turn in the same direction as the last turn
for 90º of heading change. Maintain altitude and airspeed. Lead the rollout by
Stabilize momentarily, then reduce power to 550600 ftlbs torque, lower the nose
to approximately 23 degrees nose down, maintain 100 KIAS and descend for 1000
feet. Establish a 500-foot per minute rate of descent on the VSI by adjusting power
as necessary. Remember, nose attitude controls airspeed and power controls
rate of descent. Be sure to include the VSI as part of your systematic scan.
During the descent the instructor will give approximately four heading changes of
3 to 10 degrees.
Upon completion of the 1000 foot descent, execute a missed approach by:
Advancing power to 1015 ftlbs, monitor ITT, and coordinating right rudder
pressure to maintain balanced flight, ball centered), and
Simultaneously raising the nose to 4º nose up and holding a positive climbing
Check for a positive rate of climb on the VSI, and airspeed at or below 120
KIAS and retract gear and flaps. Check landing lights off. Check and report
"Three up and locked." Raise the nose to 6º to prevent a descent as the flaps
retract. Your airspeed will be approximately 100 KIAS at this point, but
accelerating. Upon reaching 120 KIAS, readjust nose 68 degrees up.
Maintain 120 KIAS (68 degrees nose up) and climb for 1000 feet on the last
assigned heading used in the descent. Retrim.
Two hundred feet prior to level off, commence a transition to normal cruise. Trim
left rudder, down elevator as airspeed increases. Two to three KIAS prior to normal
cruise airspeed, reduce power to 650700 ftlbs to maintain 150 KIAS. Retrim.
