Flashcards in FF107 Landings Deck (20):
1

Plan to cross the runway threshold approx. __ knots below final approach speed,

10

2

Use ___ adjustments coordinated with ___ pressure to control the rate of descent.

power, elevator

3

What are the target touchdown speeds? Increase each speed by __ knots is landing with greater than 750 lbs of fuel remaining.

LDG: 80 KIAS
TO: 85 KIAS
UP: 90 KIAS
5

4

When landing in gusty wind conditions, increase landing threshold and touchdown speeds by __% of the gust increment up to a max increase of __ knots.

50, 10

5

Once the nosewheel is on the runway, smoothly apply brakes (below __ knots) while increasing back pressure.

80

6

A condition encountered during landing where the aircraft bounces between nose wheel and main gear. Caused by nose wheel contacting runway first.

porpoising

7

If porpoising is encountered...

don't counter with control inputs, PCL to MAX and position controls to takeoff attitude, go around and do not raise landing gear

8

___ is brought on by excessive airspeed in the roundout, either from poor power control, improper flap use, or diving off excess attitude.

floating

9

___ occurs when the aircraft is rounded out too rapidly or the nose is raised to the landing attitude before lift has sufficiently dissipated.

ballooning

10

___ is similar to ballooning, except that it is caused by striking the runway too hard.

bouncing

11

A wider than normal runway can cause you to flare too ___ and land ___ of the runway.

high, short

12

A runway which is more narrow than normal will make your approach appear to ___ and cause you to flare too ___.

high, late

13

If you are familiar with short runways, you will tend to misjudge the distance to a long runway and think you are ___ to the runway than you actually are.

closer

14

If you are familiar with long runways, you will tend to misjudge the distance to a short runway and think you are ___ from the runway than you actually are.

farther

15

An upsloping runway (from the approach end) will make you think you are too ___ and thus cause you to flare too ___.

high, low

16

A runway which slopes downward from the approach end will make you think you are too ___, and cause you to flare too ___.

low, high

17

___ hydroplaning is when the aircraft tires ride on a layer of water on the runway.

dynamic

18

___ hydroplaning is when the tires ride on a film of oil, rubber deposits, or other foreign matter (particularly true on a smooth runway)

viscous

19

___ ___ hydroplaning is when the tires ride on a layer of steam generated from burning rubber caused by locked brakes.

rubber reversion

20

To avoid hydroplaning, adjust the flare to ___ ___ ___.

touchdown more firmly
