  14. What are the steps for ditching?
    1. Radio transmit MAYDAY on 121.5 and squawk 7700 2. Secure or jettison heavy objects in baggage area 3. Approach: High winds, heavy sea into the wind. Light winds, heavy swells parallel to swells. 4. Flaps 30° 5. Establish 300ft/min descent at 55 KIAS 6. Unlatch cabin doors 7. Touchdown at level attitude with 300ft/min descent 8. Cushion face at touchdown 9. Evacuate airplane through doors. If necessary open windows to flood cabin and equalize pressure so doors can be opened 10. Inflate life vests and raft
  15. What are the steps for a fire during start on the ground? Both if it starts and fails to start.
    1. Continue to crank to get a start which would suck the flames and accumulated fuel through the carburetor and into the engine. (If it starts) 2. Power to 1700 RPM for a few minutes 3. Shutdown engine and inspect for damage (If it fails to start) 2. Continue cranking in an effort to obtain a start 3. Obtain a fire extinguisher 4. Secure engine: a. Master off b. Ignition off c. Fuel off 5. Extinguish fire using fire extinguisher, wool blanket or dirt 6. Inspect fire damage
  16. What are the steps for an engine fire in flight?
    1. Mixture idle cut off 2. Fuel off 3. Master off 4. Cabin heat and air off (except wing root vents) 5. Airspeed 85 KIAS (if fire is not extinguished, increase glide speed which wil provide an incombustible mixture) 6. Execute a forced landing
  17. What are the steps for an electrical fire in flight?
    1. Master off 2. All other switches except ignition switch off 3. Close vents, cabin air and heat 4. Activate fire extinguisher (After discharge ventilate the cabin) If fire appears out and electrical power is necessary for continuance of flight: 5. Master on 6. Check circuit breakers for faulty circuit, do not reset 7. Turn on radio and electrical switches one at a time with delay after each until short circuit is localized 8. Open vents, cabin air and heat when it is ascertained that fire is completely extinguished
  18. What are the steps for a cabin fire?
    1. Master off 2. Close vents, cabin air and heat to avoid drafts 3. Activate fire extinguisher (after discharge ventilate the cabin) 4. Land as soon as possible to inspect for damage
  19. What are the steps for a wing fire?
    1. Nav light off 2. Strobe light off 3. Pitot heat off 4. Perform a side slip to keep flames away from the fuel tank and cabin and land as soon as possible with flaps retracted
  20. What are the steps for and inadvertent icing encounter?
    1. Turn pitot heat on 2. Turn back or change altitude to obtain an OAT that is less conducive to icing 3. Pull cabin heat full out 4. Open the throttle to increase engine speed and minimize ice buildup on prop 5. Apply carb heat as required. Lean the mixture for maximum RPM if carburetor heat is continuously used 6. Plan a landing at the nearest airport or if extremely rapid ice buildup select a suitable "off airport" landing site 7. With ice of 1/4" or more on the wing leading edge, be prepared for a significantly higher stall speed 8. Leave flaps retracted, severe ice on the tail with the change in wing wake airflow could cause a loss of elevator effectiveness 9. Open left window and if practical scrape ice from a portion of the windshield for visibility on approach 10. Perform a landing approach using a forward slip if necessary for better visibility 11. Approach at 65-75 KIAS depending upon the amount of ice accumulation 12. Perform a landing in level attitude 
  21. What are the steps for landing with a flat main tire?
    1. Wing flaps as desired 2. Approach normal 3. Touchdown on the good tire first holding the airplane off the flat tire as long as possible with aileron control
  22. What are the steps if an ammeter shows excessive rate of charge (full scale deflection)?
    1. Alternator off 2. Nonessential electrical equipment off 3. Terminate flight as soon as possible
  23. What are the steps if the low-voltage light illuminates during flight (ammeter shows discharge)?
    1. Radios off 2. Master off 3. Master on 4. Check low voltage light off 5. Radios on (If low-voltage light illuminates again): 6. Alternator off 7. Nonessential radio and electrical equipment off 8. Terminate flight as soon as possible
  24. What are the steps for landing without elevator control?
    1. Trim for horizontal flight with 55 KIAS and flaps 20o 2. Do not change elevator trim, control by adjusting the power 3. At flareout trim control should be set at full nose up and power adjust so that the airplane will rotate to the horizontal attitude for touchdown 4. Close the throttle at touchdown
  25. What are the steps for recovery from a spiral dive in cloud?
    1. Close the throttle 2. Using aileron and rudder align the symbolic airplane in the turn coordinator with the horizon reference line 3. Cautiously apply elevator back pressure to slowly reduce airspeed to 70 KIAS 4. Adjust the trim to maintain a 70 KIAS glide 5. Keep hands off the control wheel using rudder control to hold a straight heading 6. Apply carb heat 7. Clear engine occasionally but avoid enough power to disturb the trimmed glide 8. Upon breaking out of clouds resume normal cruising flight
  26. What are the steps for recovery from a spin?
    1. Ailerons neutral 2. Throttle idle 3. Hold full rudder opposite to the spin rotation 4. Just after the rudder reaches the stop, move the control wheels briskly forward to break the stall (Full down elevator may be required at aft center of gravity loadings to assure optimum recoveries) 5. Hold these control imputs until rotation stops, premature relaxation of the controls may extend the recovery 6. As rotation stops, neutralize rudder and make a smooth recovery from the resulting dive
