References FAA-H-8083-2, FAA-H-8083-3; POH/AFM
Objective To determine that the applicant exhibits satisfactory knowledge, risk management, and skills associated with associated with emergency approach and landing procedures.
The applicant demonstrates understanding of
K1 Immediate action items and emergency procedures  
K2 Airspeed, to include:  
K2a a: importance of best glide speed and its relationship to distance  
K2b b: difference between best glide speed and minimum sink speed  
K2c c: effects of wind on glide distance  
K3 Effects of atmospheric conditions on emergency approach and landing  
K4 A stabilized approach to include energy management concepts

K6 ATC services to aircraft in distress  
The Applicant demonstrates the ability to identify, assess and mitigate risks encompassing:
R1 Failure to consider altitude, wind, terrain, obstructions, gliding distance and available landing distance  
R2 Failure to plan and follow a flightpath to the selected landing area  
R3 Collision hazards to includ aircraft, terrain, obstacles and wires.  
R4 Improper airplane configuration  
R5 Low altitude maneuvering including stall, spin or CFIT  
R6 Distractions, loss of situational awareness, or improper task management  
The applicant demonstrates the ability to
S1 Establish and maintain the recommended best glide airspeed, +/-10 knots  
S2 Configure the airplane in accordance with the POH/AFM and existing conditions  
S3 Select a suitable landing area considering altitude, wind, terrain, obstructions and available glide distance  
S4 Plan and follow a flightpath to the selected landing area considering altitude, wind, terrain, and obstructions  
S5 Prepare for landing as specified by the evaluator  
S6 Complete the appropriate checklist
