Limitation, Operation, Indication

A method of ensuring aircraft limitations are not exceeded when changing aircraft configuration.  

LIMITATION - Before operating any control that will change the configuration of the aircraft like the Flaps, check that the aircraft is within the limitations for that configuration change.  

OPERTION - Select the new configuration.  

INDICATION - Check that the configuration change has been successful by the control indicator.  

E.g. If the Landing Gear speed limitation is 175 kts the process is:

  • Speed below 175
  • Select Gear Down
  • Gear Travelling .... Three Greens

Max Drift

Max Drift

A method of assessing the effect of wind on the aircraft drift from track.  

MAX DRIFT - The maximum drift an aircraft will suffer from a wind directly abeam the flight path.  This is estimated by taking the windspeed and dividing it by the aircraft’s speed in nm / minute.  

E.g. An aircraft flying at 240 kts is covering 4 nm / minute.  With a wind from directly abeam with a speed of 20 kts the aircraft will suffer a drift of 5˚.  

20 / 4 = 5

Outside Air Temperature

The temperature of the air around the aircraft.  

Low temperature causes the air to be more dense and so appear as if the aircraft is flying lower when assessed on a Barometric Altimeter.  

Average Air Temperature at sea level for the ICAO Standard Atmosphere is 15°

Progressively Adjust the Attitude and Trim

PROGRESSIVELY ADJUST the ATTITUDE - As an aircraft accelerates from a Climbing speed to a Straight and Level speed the lift initially generated by the initial attitude of attack increases as the speed increase.  If attention is not paid to this the aircraft will begin to climb.  The attitude will need to be progressively reduced as the speed increases.  

and TRIM - At each stage of attitude change the trim will need to be adjusted to ensure the aircraft maintain the new attitude with minimal input from you.

Power, Attitude, Trim

A method of changing airspeed whilst maintaining level flight, or levelling off from a descent.  

POWER - Adjust the throttle to give the expected required power for the new Straight and Level speed.  

ATTITUDE - Adjust the aircraft in pitch to the expected attitude for that speed.  

TRIM - Trim any stick forces to a minimum so that the aircraft maintains the new attitude with minimal attention from you.
