Climbing too high prior to low key resulting in excessive altitude during last half of ELP.
Failure to complete the Before Landing Checklist.
1006. G-WARMUP SEQUENCE
Transition to aerobatic cruise and complete Pre-Stall/Aerobatic Checklist.
Clear area. Initiate three-second verbal countdown. On "one," apply AGSM and on
"zero," smoothly roll into 60° AOB turn at two Gs for 90° of heading change.
Passing 90 of heading change, smoothly increase bank as required to steadily increase Gs to
four-five and sustain for ~10 seconds.
Roll out and verbally confirm between crewmembers no problems were encountered.
1007. PRECISION AEROBATICS PROCEDURES
1. Maneuver depictions and descriptions are located in
Chapter Eight, Precision Aerobatics. The following procedures
amplify for the IP what is written specifically for the SNFO/SWSO
in that chapter.
2. Begin all maneuvers in aerobatic cruise after completing the
Pre-Stalling, Spinning, and Aerobatic Checks. Do not conduct
aerobatic operations with a fuel imbalance greater than 50 lbs.
Commence a clearing turn. During the last 90º of turn lower the nose slightly and accelerate to
230-250 KIAS. Roll out of your clearing turn on/parallel to a section line with 230 - 250 KIAS.
Recheck the wings level and check the airspace above you clear. Start a smooth straight pull-up
accelerating to 3.5 - 4.0 Gs within two to three seconds.
Check wings level as the nose passes through the horizon. Adjust stick pressure as necessary to
keep the nose moving at a constant rate.
Shortly after passing the vertical position tilt your head back so you can see the opposite horizon.
Keep the wings parallel to the horizon and maintain the proper heading by gradually increasing
right rudder pressure counteracting the effect of decreasing airspeed and constant torque.
