  1. The control instruments display what?
    Immediate attitude and power indications
  2. The control instruments are:
    • EADI
    • PEDD
  3. The performance instruments indicate what?
    The actual performance of the aircraft
  4. Basic performance instruments include:
    • ASI
    • Altimeter
    • VSI
  5. Other performance instruments include:
    • AOA gauge
    • AOA indexer
    • Turn and Bank indicator
    • EHSI
  6. Power control is maintained by referencing the _______
  7. An incorrect pitch setting will be noticed on what instruments?
    • VSI will give the first indications
    • Altimeter
  8. Failure to maintain wings level will be apparent on what instrument?
  9. An incorrect power setting will be seen on the ____ first, then the ____ if left uncorrected.
    • ASI
    • VSI and altimeter
  10. Procedural steps for the control and performance concept are:
    • Establish: set/maintain attitude and power setting
    • Trim: neutralize pressures
    • Cross-check: performance instruments
    • Adjust: make specific adjustments
  11. Use composite reference as your primary attitude reference in place of ____.
    the EADI
  12. General rule for crab when flying at 200 KIAS in the pattern.
    1° of crab is required for approximately 3 knots of crosswind
  13. A heading deviation is caused by?
    not keeping your wings level and not keeping the turn and bank ball centered
  14. Heading deviation rules of thumb:
    • Deviation < 30° - use bank angle equal to number of degrees off
    • Deviation > 30° - use 30° of bank to make correction
  15. An altitude deviation will appear where?
    • on the altimeter
    • VSI will move first but will not reflect on altitude indicator unless significant
    • Do not chase the VSI
  16. Airspeed deviations show up where first?
    • ASI
    • Normally caused by an incorrect power setting
  17. Set up your altitude correction using a ______.
    • definite pitch change
    • Deviations <300' - 2° of pitch
  18. What is the trim order?
    • Rudder
    • Elevator
    • Aileron
  19. How do you determine you lead point on turns?
    • Use 1/3 your bank angle.
    • 30° bank turn requires 10° lead on heading
    • 45° bank turn requires 15° lead on heading
    • 60° bank turn requires 20° lead on heading
  20. Constant airspeed descent:
    maintain your airspeed by adjusting pitch
  21. What is the PAT technique when used to make smooth, continuous corrections?
    • Power - lead with power change
    • Attitude - set pitch attitude
    • Trim - trim off stick forces
  22. Constant rate descent:
    maintain constant airspeed and your desired descent rate by varying pitch and power
  23. Lead points for a climb to level-off:
    10% of VSI
  24. What is empty field myopia?
    condition in which the eyes, having nothing readily available in the visual field in which to focus on, focus automatically at about 9'
  25. What is visual accommodation?
    time it takes your eyes to focus, 2-3 seconds
  26. What is binocular vision?
    your mind tends to ignore things you don't see with both eyes
  27. How does your pitch in a climbing turn compare to that in a straight climb?
    Constant airspeed climbing turn, your pitch attitude will be lower than a straight climb
  28. How does your pitch in a descending turn compare to that in a straight descent?
    • Constant speed descending turns, pitch attitude will be lower than during a wings level descent
    • Steeper the bank, more rapidly you will descend
  29. Effects of trim and power changes:
    • Acceleration - left/down
    • Power addition - right/down
    • Deceleration - right/up
    • Power reduction - left/up
