Aim of an Emergency Approach training
The Emergency Approach training should train/teach you...
- Prompt establishment of the best glide airspeed and the recommended configuration.
- How to select a suitable emergency landing area.
- Planning and execution of approach to the selected landing area.
- Use of emergency checklist.
- Importance of attempting to determine reason for the malfunction.
- Importance of dividing attention between flying the approach and accomplishing emergency checklist.

Total time: 1:10
You will need a functional aircraft, a free practice area and airport and an instructor
- Conduct preflight training on the elements of an emergency approach.
- Demonstrate emergency approach.
- Conduct post flight briefing.
- Ask questions, review homework.
- Perform preflight.
- Observe demonstrations.
- Perform IAW PTS (in accordance with practical test standards).
These errors can lead to fail in the Emergency Approach test
- Failure to maintain Best Glide Speed.
- Improper airplane configuration.
Checklist for Flight
A. Lesson Requirements
- Task: Perform an emergency approach and landing.
- Condition: Given a functional aircraft.
- Standard: IAW the PTS.
- Exhibits knowledge of the elements related to emergency approach and landing procedures.
- Analyzes the situation and selects an appropriate course of action.
- Establishes and maintains the recommended best-glide airspeed, ±10 knots.
- Selects a suitable landing area.
- Plans and follows a flight pattern to the selected landing area considering altitude, wind, terrain, and obstructions.
- Prepares for landing, or go-around, as specified by the examiner.
- Follows the appropriate checklist.
B. Identify the most important elements
- Fly the plane.
- Best glide speed.
- Identify landing area.
- Student check
- What is the best glide speed in this airplane? _______
C. Identify common errors
- Failure to maintain best glide speed. Pitch for airspeed, this is especially critical when you have no power.
- Failure to reach the landing area. Pick a better landing area, fly the plane. You may have to adjust your speed, but don’t stall.
- Failure to use the checklists. Once you have the plane under control, start troubleshooting.
D. Perform an emergency approach
- Get best glide speed.
- Identify landing area, begin moving toward it.
- fuel on correct tank
- fullest or both
- boost pumps on
- mixture rich
- carb heat on
- flaps up
- gear up
- 7700 on transponder, notify ATC (121.5 or current ATC freq)
- Set up for landing.
- Extend gear and flaps when landing assured. (Examiner may end here)
- Prior to landing open doors.
- ATC = Air Traffic Control
- IAW = In Accordance With
- PROC = Procedure
- PTS = Practical Test Standards
