Lesson 15


1. Preflight Orientation
2. Flight
3. Postflight Evaluation


During this lesson, the student will practice, as necessary, the maneuvers listed as review to gain proficiency and confidence. In addition, airplane control by instrument reference during emergency situations is introduced to broaden the student’s knowledge.


Lesson Review

  •        Short-Field Takeoff and Climb
  •        Soft-Field Takeoff and Climb
  •        Power-Off Stalls (Full)
  •        Power-On Stalls (Full)
  •        Forward Slip to a Landing
  •        Short-Field Approach and Landing
  •        Soft-Field Approach and Landing

Lesson Introduction

  •        Power-Off Stalls (Imminent) (IR)
  •        Power-On Stalls (Imminent) (IR)
  •        Recovery from Unusual flight Attitudes (IR)
  •        Emergency Climbs and Descents Using Radio Navigation Aids or Radar Vectoring (IR)
  •        VOR Orientation and Tracking (VR)


The student will perform takeoffs and landings smoothly, while maintaining good directional control. During short and soft field takeoffs, airspeed should be maintained at the desired airspeed, +5 -0 knots. During landings, all approaches will be stabilized, and airspeed will be within +/-5 knots of that desired. The student will also display the correct recovery techniques from unusual attitudes and should be able to initiate emergency climbs and descents by instrument reference using radio aids and radar services.
