A. Maneuvering during slow Flight
References FAA-H-8083-2, FAA-H-8083-3, FAA-H-8083-25B; POH/AFM
Objective To determine that the applicant exhibits satisfactory knowledge, risk management, and skills associated with maneuvering during slow flight
The applicant demonstrates understanding of
K1 Aerodynamics associated with slow flight in various airplane configurations, to include the relationship between angle of attack, airspeed, load factor, power setting, airplane weight and center of gravity, airplane attitude, and yaw effects  
The Applicant demonstrates the ability to identify, assess and mitigate risks encompassing:
R1 Inadvertent slow flight and flight with a stall warning, which could lead to loss of control  
R2 Range and limitations of stall warning indicators (eg., airplane buffet, stall horn, etc.)  
R3 Failure to maintain coordinated flight  
R4 Effect of enviornmental elements on airplane performance (eg., turbulence, microbursts, and high density altitude)  
R5 Collision hazards to includ aircraft, terrain, obstacles and wires.  
R6 Distractions, loss of situational awareness, or improper task management  
The applicant demonstrates the ability to:
S1 Clear the area  
S2 Select an entry altitude that will allow the Task to be completed no lower than 1,500 feet AGL  
S3 Establish and maintain an airspeed at which any further increase in angle of attack, increase in load factor, or reduction in power would result in a stall warning (eg., airplane buffet, stall horn, etc.)  
S4 Accomplish coordinated straight and level flight, turns, climbs and descents with the airplane configured as specified by the evaluator, without a stall warning (eg., airplane buffet, stall horn, etc.)  
S5 Maintain the specified altitude +/- 100 feet; specified heading +/- 10° airspeed +10/-0 knots; and specified angle of bank +/-10°
