BASIC INSTRUMENT PROCEDURES
As the aircraft approaches a wings-level attitude:
When the wings are level:
"PULL - NOT TO EXCEED LIMITS." (this instruction will bring the nose back to the
horizon. ("Limits" refers to 17 units AOA or 4 Gs whichever occurs first).
As the nose of the aircraft approaches the horizon:
When the aircraft is in straight and level flight.
"POWER UP, SPEEDBRAKES IN." (the recovery is complete).
Figure 1-10 Nose Low Unusual Attitude
Nose High Unusual Attitudes
A nose high unusual attitude is defined as an attitude in which the miniature aircraft is displayed
in the lighter (upper) half of the VGI (Figure 1-11). A check of other instruments will indicate a
decrease in airspeed and an increase in altitude. During a nose high unusual attitude the primary
consideration is to avoid excessive angle of attack. At slow speeds, controls must be cautiously
displaced to avoid aggravating an unusual attitude. At slow airspeeds, a very slight back stick
pressure can cause a rapid increase in angle of attack, and uncoordinated aileron or rudder inputs
may induce adverse yaw and/or a departure from controlled flight.
