Engine Failure During Takeoff Before VMC (Simulated)
Lesson Plan

Introduction:

  • To determine that the applicant exhibits satisfactory knowledge, risk management, and skills associated with an engine failure during takeoff before VMC
  • Note: See Appendix 6: Safety of Flight and Appendix 7: Aircraft, Equipment, and Operational Requirements & Limitations
  • References: FAA-H-8083-2, FAA-H-8083-3; FAA-P-8740-66; POH/AFM

Attention:

  • Research a mishap case study:
  • Discuss how the initial conditions developed into an incident/accident/mishap
  • Relate similar personal experience of the same type of incident/accident/mishap

Engine Failure During Takeoff Before VMC (Simulated) Knowledge:

The applicant demonstrates understanding of:
  • PA.IX.E.K1:

    Factors affecting VMC
  • PA.IX.E.K2:

    VMC (red line) and VYSE (blue line)
  • PA.IX.E.K3:

    Accelerate/stop distance

Engine Failure During Takeoff Before VMC (Simulated) Risk Management:

The applicant is able to identify, assess, and mitigate risk associated with:
  • PA.IX.E.R1:

    Failure to plan for engine failure during takeoff
  • PA.IX.E.R2:

    Improper airplane configuration
  • PA.IX.E.R3:

    Distractions, task prioritization, loss of situational awareness, or disorientation

Engine Failure During Takeoff Before VMC (Simulated) Skills:

The applicant exhibits the skill to:
  • PA.IX.E.S1:

    Close the throttles smoothly and promptly when a simulated engine failure occurs
  • PA.IX.E.S2:

    Maintain directional control and apply brakes (AMEL), or flight controls (AMES), as necessary
