Card Set Information
What is the goal of roundout?
establish the proper attitude for the aircraft to settle gently on to the runway at touchdown
LDG flaps - 80 KIAS
TO flaps - 85 KIAS
flaps UP - 90 KIAS
Increase speeds by 5 knots if landing with greater than 750lbs. total fuel remaining
As you make your turn off the runway, ________.
avoid applying brakes with nose wheel steering engaged.
What is the procedure to relieve nose wheel shimmy?
apply stick back pressure to relieve weight on the nose wheel, then gently release pressure to re-establish nose wheel runway contact.
T or F: Neutralize rudder pedals prior to engaging nose wheel steering to avoid excessive swerve when nose wheel steering is selected.
If porpoising is encountered, what should you not do?
Do not attempt to counter with control inputs
During a severe bounce, why is it bad to continue the landing?
the aircraft may stall before a landing can be made
Roundout too high:
Begin roundout too early or aggressively, which leads to running out of airspeed while still well above the runway
Leads to a stall or a dropped in landing
Roundout too low:
Late to start the roundout and pulling the stick back to rapidly causes accelerated stall.
Leads to extremely hard touchdown
Caused when the nose wheel contacts the runway before the main gear touchdown, coupled with excessive airspeed
Brought on by excessive airspeed in the roundout.
Results in touchdowns well beyond the normal point on the runway
Aircraft is rounded out to rapidly or the nose is raised to landing attitude before lift has sufficiently dissipated
Caused by striking the runway too hard
A wider than normal runway can cause what?
you to flare too high or land short of the runway
A narrow runway can will make ______.
your approach appear too high and cause you to flare too late
A runway that slopes upward from the approach end will make you think _____.
you are too high and thus cause you to flare too low
A runway which slopes downward for the approach end will make you think _______.
you are too low, and cause you to flare too high
the aircraft tires ride on a layer of water on the runway
The tires ride on a film of oil, rubber deposits or other foreign matter
the tires ride on a layer of steam generated from burning rubber caused by a locked brake
What conditions contribute to hydroplaning?
speed, water volume, aircraft weight
At what speed can hydroplaning occur in the T6?
How to correct for hydroplaning.
maintain directional control with the rudder, and avoid sharp braking
