FORWARD SLIPS TO LANDING:

 

The sole purpose of the foreword slip to a landing is to loose altitude. To execute it properly, full application

of the selected rudder and the opposite amount of aileron will be used to maintain a straight ground track. In the

performance of this maneuver you will be in a cross controlled condition and there control of the angle of attack is

extremely important.

Objective:

 

Content:

1. Complete before landing checklist

2. Maintain pattern altitude during the base and beginning portion of the final segment

3. At mid base reduce power to 1500 rpm

4. Reduce airspeed to recommended airspeed

5. On final power to idle

6. Establish forward slip by simultaneously lowering a wing into the wind and applying full opposite rudder.

7. Adjust pitch and amount of slip as necessary to maintain proper attitude, descent angle, and directional

control

8. Transition from slip to a normal approach approximately 50 feet above the runway

9. Transition from approach to landing attitude approximately 10 to 15 feet above the runway by applying

increasing back pressure on the elevator

Completion Standards:

Common Errors:

1. Adjust glide path by adjusting airspeed

To train the student procedure for loosing altitude rapidly to return to a proper glide path.
