2 Chapter 2: Flying Straight and Level and Turning 2-23 Application of Rudder Compensates for Adverse Yaw - Rolling Out of a Turn Fig. 55 Fig. 56 Rolling out to the left results in an increase in adverse yaw on the right wing. Applying left rudder during rollout prevents the nose from yawing right or left. A Before rolling out of the turn. B Correct usage of left rudder. No yaw. C Insufficient left rudder usage. Nose yaws to the right. Excessive left rudder usage. Nose yaws to the left. Rolling Out of a Right Turn Mountain Reference Fig. 57 The same principle applies when rolling out of a turn. To begin any rollout, you ll apply aileron to reduce the bank angle and simultaneously use rudder in the same direction to compensate for the adverse yaw of the lowered aileron on the rising wing. For instance, when rolling out of a right turn into straight and level flight, the aileron on the right wing moves downward, which increases the lift as well as the drag on that wing (the aileron on the left wing moves upward decreasing the lift and the drag on that wing). The nose wants to yaw to the right because of the adverse yaw produced by the lowered right aileron (Figure 55). To keep the nose from yawing, you must use left rudder in coordination with left aileron application. one correctly, the nose appears to stop moving during the rollout with the airplane pivoting about its longitudinal axis as it returns to a zero banked condition (Figure 56). Yes, of course the nose moves a very tiny bit during the rollout, but if you roll out at a moderate rate, you ll hardly notice this horizontal movement. Too much or too little rudder causes the nose to yaw left or right during the rollout. This is how you determine the precise amount of rudder to use when rolling out of a turn. Figure 57 shows how a rollout from a right turn looks from the airplane cockpit. As you begin the rollout from a right turn (Figure 57, position A) you apply left aileron and left rudder simultaneously. You re using just enough left rudder application to keep the nose from yawing to the right (or the left). one correctly, you should see the nose appear to pivot about the distant point where the rollout began (Figure 57, position B). Let me emphasize this point one more time. uring the coordinated rollout, the nose

3 How does the use of aileron to raise a dropping wing increase the angle of attack on that wing? Figure 27 shows how turning the yoke to the right lowers the aileron on the stalled (left) wing, thus further increasing the angle of attack on that wing beyond its critical value. Your first reaction whenever a wing drops should be to reduce the angle of attack and simultaneously apply rudder to stop the yawing (or rolling) motion while neutralizing the ailerons. You can t spin if you don t yaw. Period! As a general rule during all stalls, if one wing drops (or begins to drop) during a stall, resulting in the airplane yawing and rolling toward the dropping wing, leave the ailerons in their neutral position and release elevator back pressure to reduce the angle of attack on both wings while simultaneously applying sufficient rudder pressure to stop the yawing motion. If a left wing drops, resulting in a yaw and roll to the left, apply right rudder (Figure 28); if the right wing drops, resulting in a yaw and roll to the right, apply left rudder (Figure 29). As you are applying rudder, you are simultaneously reducing the angle of attack. How much rudder pressure should you apply to stop the yawing motion? Enough to stop the yawing motion! That s right. o whatever it takes, and don t be shy about doing it. Push that rudder pedal all the way to the floorboard if necessary. You re usually at a very slow airspeed, which means the Chapter 5: Stalls and Spins 5-21 Right aileron deepens the stall on the left wing 2 2 Aileron Application and Angle of Attack As the left wing stalls and drops, attempting to raise it by using right aileron increases the angle of attack on the left wing, thus deepening the stall on that wing. Left Wing Stalling and ropping First Recover by lowering the nose and applying right rudder Fig. 27 Airplane rolls and yaws to the left as left wing stalls first Fig. 28 Right Wing Stalling and ropping First Recover by lowering the nose and applying left rudder 1 1 Airplane rolls and yaws to the right as right wing stalls first Fig. 29

4 There are two problems students typically experience during the initial takeoff. The first is that they tend to be either ham fisted or balletdainty on the elevator control either pulling aft too hard or not hard enough. The second big takeoff issue occurs when insufficient right rudder is applied just after liftoff. Until liftoff, P-factor (which increases with an increase in angle of attack) has no affect on the airplane. As soon as the angle of attack increases during rotation, the left yawing tendency of the nose increases (Figure 17, position A). You must apply sufficient right rudder to keep the airplane aligned with the extended runway centerline and keep it coordinated, too. Whatever you do, don t be like the pilot whose rudder skills are so poor that the only reason his airplane appears to fly straight on takeoff is because of the coriolis force. Adding right rudder also means applying whatever aileron deflection is needed to keep the wings level (Figure 17, position B). How do you know if you re aligned with the runway centerline after liftoff? The best reference is to look directly ahead of you at either the end of the runway (if you can still see it over the airplane s nose) or some distant reference you spied just before takeoff. Sometimes that s a bit challenging, given the high nose-up attitude that s normal during climb. You simply can t see through your instrument panel Chapter 6 - Takeoffs and Climbs 6-13 Flight Control Use on Takeoff Airplane yaws to left of runway Insufficient right rudder and aileron application during takeoff Airplane tracks runway centerline Appropriate application of rudder and aileron during and after the liftoff Fig. 17 uring the takeoff roll and subsequent climb, apply sufficient right rudder pressure to compensate for the airplane s power-induced left turning tendency or the airplane will track left of the centerline. Squeeze Play This instructor and student used the POH to calculate the rotation speed but neglected to follow the procedure for leaning the fuel mixture [for takeoff]. They put their C172 into a spot where there was not enough speed to takeoff and not enough runway left to abort....with full tanks and increasing density altitude, the engine was unable to produce the needed power to achieve the rotation speed of 48 knots. After passing the intersection of Runway 13/31 we were at 42 knots. At this point we decided to rotate because there was not enough runway left to abort the takeoff... Unfortunately, after rotation, the stall warning horn sounded at about 10 feet. We did not have enough distance to climb and clear the obstacles at the departure end of the runway. We decided to cut the power and land... At this point we believed that there was some runway and hard grass surface to stop the plane. Unfortunately, the brakes did not catch the wet grass and we slid into the plowed field 200 feet south of the runway... In my opinion, if we had tried to keep it in the air the outcome could have been much worse. However, there were some errors in our judgement. The density altitude was significantly higher than it had been in the last several months. Keeping the high density altitude in mind, apparently one thing that we could have done to produce more power [would have been to] lean the mixture for takeoff... ASRS Report A B

6 your left, where the blurry motion stops yet the runway still appears to move. Now you have the depth perception necessary to gauge your height above the landing surface. See how I let you down by not letting you down with these important tips? Now it s time to sweeten things up by taking a closer look at the sweet spot. The Sweet Spot The sweet spot for us is typically framed by the left side of the engine cowling, the right side of the window post (on those airplanes with window posts, of course), and the horizon. The frame takes the shape of a pizza slice through which you re viewing a portion of the non-moving runway and the horizon (Figure 15). This is only available as takeout, by the way. Looking anywhere besides in the pizza slice during the landing flare generally means you re looking in all the wrong places and won t know how high you are above the ground. And how much fun can that be when a large solid slab of solid runway is rising to meet you? You should also be aware that the sweet spot ahead of you where the blurry motion stops will appear to move toward you (horizontally) as the airplane slows down during the landing flare (Figure 16). In other words, the sweet spot is approximately 50 to 80 feet ahead of you as you begin the roundout and flare, then it moves closer (think 40 feet, then 30 feet, then...you get the idea, right?) as your speed decreases. Think about it for a second and you will see just how much sense this makes. When the airplane is stopped on the runway, you can look directly down out your left window and see a non-moving section of the runway with perfect clarity. How sweet is that? That s why you have to continually shift your vision just a little closer toward the airplane during the landing flare to maintain visual contact with the sweet spot. Chapter 10: The Roundout and Flare The Sweet Spot and Where It s Found Look in the pizza slice area during the roundout and flare Window Post Fig. 15 The sweet spot is framed by the pizza slice triangular area formed between the horizon, the window post and the engine cowling. The Sweet Spot Moves Closer uring the Flare Horizon Cowling As the airplane decelerates during the landing flare, the sweet spot (the place where the blurry motion stops) moves closer to you. So you have to keep shifting your vision closer to you as you flare. Fig. 16
