Q
A
IF YOU KNOW YOU ARE GOING TO
BOTCH A SHORT FIELD OR POWER-OFF
180-DEGREE LANDING, SHOULD YOU GO
AROUND? WOULD THAT DECISION FAIL YOU?
Yes. But if that will result in a failure
depends a little bit. It is always a best
practice to go around if you are going to make a
bad landing. Never force the aircraft down just
to hit a point or get the landing done. This can
result in damage or worse. When you make the
decision to go around on a short field landing and
then come around and do a good landing it will
most times result in passing that maneuver. On
a power-off 180-degree landing, a go-around has
been interpreted by the FAA to be only allowable
without failure when the conditions or need
for the go-around were out of the applicant's
control. For example: an abnormal wind gust,
ATC calling for a go-around, or perhaps an
aircraft pulling out in front of you. The FAA
views the power-off 180-degree landing as a no
go-around emergency procedure demonstration
to a performance maneuver standard. It really
is a one and done maneuver on a commercial
practical test.
Q
A
AS A STUDENT PILOT, WHATS THE MOST
IMPRESSIVE THING YOU WOULD WANT
TO SEE DURING A PRIVATE PILOT CHECKRIDE?
PIC command authority. A big part of
the test really starts with the applicant
being the decision maker and able to manage
the aircraft and the conditions for the flight.
Going from student pilot to private pilot is really
about having the skill, knowledge, and decisionmaking
skills to be in charge of the aircraft and
its operation. It means you are able to go out and
not kill yourself or your friends and family, and
to not end up in trouble to the point where you,
your instructor, or worse, your DPE will get a call
from the FAA asking why you should be allowed
to fly as a private pilot. Yes, the private pilot
certificate is a lesson to learn more, but it is also
a lesson to be able to be the PIC. So, be the PIC on
the practical test.
* Have an airworthy aircraft-know if
something is not working if it's okay to fly
* Own your checkride-you're the pilot
in command
* Be in charge, be confident in yourself, be
prepared
PEARLS OF WISDOM FOR APPLICANTS:
* Relax, breathe, and fly the airplane
