Recover From Unusual Attitudes

11 Oct

Objective:

To recognize undesirable flight attitude and to apply appropriate controls to correct and recover the A/C.

 

  • Factors that contribute:
    • Instrument failure
    • Disorientation
    • Fixation

 

Nose-High Attitude:

  • decreasing AS
  • increasing ALT
  • high rate climb VSI
  • nose high AI

 

Nose-Low Attitude:

  • increase AS
  • loss of ALT
  • high rate descent VSI
  • nose down AI

 

 

 

 

 

 

Partial panel Unusual Attitude Recovery *( very important to read the instruments and confirm which one has failed before making correction)

Usually loss of Gyro instruments HI and AI:

  • use TC to stop the turn
  • ALT, VSI to stop descent or climb (change of direction – passing through level flight)
  • AI can be used for pitch if ALT and VSI fail
