  1. What is the goal of roundout?
    establish the proper attitude for the aircraft to settle gently on to the runway at touchdown
  2. Touchdown airspeed:
    • 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
  3. As you make your turn off the runway, ________.
    avoid applying brakes with nose wheel steering engaged.
  4. 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.
  5. T or F: Neutralize rudder pedals prior to engaging nose wheel steering to avoid excessive swerve when nose wheel steering is selected.
  6. If porpoising is encountered, what should you not do?
    Do not attempt to counter with control inputs
  7. During a severe bounce, why is it bad to continue the landing?
    the aircraft may stall before a landing can be made
  8. 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
  9. Roundout too low:
    • Late to start the roundout and pulling the stick back to rapidly causes accelerated stall.
    • Leads to extremely hard touchdown
  10. Porpoising:
    Caused when the nose wheel contacts the runway before the main gear touchdown, coupled with excessive airspeed
  11. Floating:
    • Brought on by excessive airspeed in the roundout.
    • Results in touchdowns well beyond the normal point on the runway
  12. Ballooning:
    Aircraft is rounded out to rapidly or the nose is raised to landing attitude before lift has sufficiently dissipated
  13. Bouncing:
    Caused by striking the runway too hard
  14. A wider than normal runway can cause what?
    you to flare too high or land short of the runway
  15. A narrow runway can will make ______.
    your approach appear too high and cause you to flare too late
  16. 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
  17. A runway which slopes downward for the approach end will make you think _______.
    you are too low, and cause you to flare too high
  18. Hydroplaning
    the aircraft tires ride on a layer of water on the runway
  19. Hydroplaning
    The tires ride on a film of oil, rubber deposits or other foreign matter
  20. Hydroplaning
    Rubber reversion
    the tires ride on a layer of steam generated from burning rubber caused by a locked brake
  21. What conditions contribute to hydroplaning?
    speed, water volume, aircraft weight
  22. At what speed can hydroplaning occur in the T6?
    135 KIAS
  23. How to correct for hydroplaning.
    maintain directional control with the rudder, and avoid sharp braking
