Once within dead-engine glide distance of high key, or after regaining profile with a correction
climb, set power to 4 to 6 percent and continue the glide to high key or continue with the ELP, as
If weather conditions (i.e. clouds) preclude a climb to within glide
distance of high key or the runway, leave the power up and
accelerate beneath the clouds. Remain in VMC and accelerate to
obtain sufficient energy (in this case, with high airspeed) to set
4 to 6 percent, decelerate, and reach high/low key on profile.
EMERGENCY VOICE REPORTS
Emergency voice reports are presented with Identification, Situation, Position, and Intention (the
"ISPI" format). Emergency voice reports of an immediate or serious nature are prefaced with
"MAYDAY, MAYDAY, MAYDAY." Emergency reports of a delayed or less serious nature are
preceded with "PAN-PAN, PAN-PAN, PAN-PAN." An example of an emergency voice report
of an engine failure is as follows:
"MAYDAY, MAYDAY, MAYDAY, Call Sign, engine failure, five miles northeast of Barin
OLF at 6000 feet, executing forced landing at Barin, Runway 09."
