The emergency maneuver course is intended for all pilots who want to acquire or improve proficiency in controlling your airplane during a crisis. Our objective is to expand aeronautical knowledge and pilot skills essential for safe and confident flight operations. The ground training will include a review of:

a. Aircraft controls
b. Aerodynamics
c. Aircraft stability
d. Stalls
e. Spins
f. Slips and Skids
g. Inverted attitudes
h. Control failures
i. Power plant failure
j. Off airport landings

The flight training is organized to achieve two goals: Stall/Spin Awareness and In-Flight Emergencies, with the presumption that approximately 5.6 hours of dual flight training will be accomplished in eight flights.

Flight 1. 0.5 Hours Ground Instruction, 0.7 Hours Dual.

Objective: The student will be familiarized with the training airplane and airport traffic operations. Basic aerodynamic principles will be reviewed, and the student will be introduced to in-flight coordination exercises, turns, slow flight, power on and power off stalls, and prolonged stalled flight.

Flight 2. 0.5 Hours Ground Instruction, 0.7 Hours Dual.

Objective. The student will be familiarized with the mechanics of performing one- and two-turn spins to the left and to the right, as well as develop visual orientation in the spins.

Flight 3. 0.5 Hours Ground Instruction, 0.7 Hours Dual.

Objective. The student will continue to perform precision one-turn spins to the left and to the right. The student will develop an understanding of spin dynamics and the adverse effect inappropriate control inputs can have on spin recovery. The student will recover from inadvertent spins entered from unusual attitudes implementing the PARE(R) spin recovery procedure.

Flight 4. 0.5 Hours Ground Instruction, 0.7 Hours Dual.

Objective. The student will continue to perform precision one-turn spins to the left and to the right. The student will develop an understanding of stall/spin awareness during critical flight operations in the traffic pattern, as well as an understanding of spirals and spiral recovery.

Flight 5. 0.5 Hours Ground Instruction, 0.7 Hours Dual.

Objective: The student will review one-turn spins and 180 degree power off approaches to land. The student will be introduced to full and half aileron rolls both to the left and to the right, as well as the aerodynamics and physiology of inverted flight.

Flight 6. 0.5 Hours Ground Instruction, 0.7 Hours Dual.

Objective. The student will review spins and rolls in both directions, and will be familiarized with the mechanics of unusual attitude recoveries requiring roll inputs.

Flight 7. 0.5 Hours Ground Instruction, 0.7 Hours Dual.

Objective. The student will continue to perform precision one-turn spins, full rolls, and half rolls to the left and to the right. The student will be familiarized with slip and skid dynamics. The student will perform slips and slipping turns to the left and to the right.

Flight 8. 0.5 Hours Ground Instruction, 0.7 Hours Dual.

Objective. The student will continue to perform precision one-turn spins, full rolls, and half rolls to the left and to the right. The student will be familiarized with various control failure and simulated off airport landing scenarios.
