Lazy Eights


Objective l.jpg

Objective

  • Exhibit knowledge of the elements related to performance factors associated with lazy eights


Objective3 l.jpg

Objective

  • Consists of two symmetrical 180o turns flown in opposite directions while climbing and descending during the turns.

  • Name comes from the pattern traced by the nose

  • Maneuver must be done slowly and smoothly


Objective4 l.jpg

Objective

  • Lazy eights require smooth coordinated use of the flight controls

    • At no time are you straight and level

    • Maneuver requires constantly changing control pressure


Objective5 l.jpg

Objective

  • The control pressure change with combinations of climbs and descents at varying airspeeds

  • Power setting must maintain the altitude for the maximum and minimum airspeeds used


  • Objective6 l.jpg

    Objective

    • If excess power is used you will gain altitude when the maneuver is completed, insufficient power will result in a altitude loss


    Altitude l.jpg

    Altitude

    • The altitude must be high enough to ensure you do not descent below 1500 ft AGL

      • Pick a starting altitude that is easy to read on your altimeter


    Reference point l.jpg

    Reference Point

    • Select a prominent 90o reference point in the distance

      • If possible select reference points that will help identify the 45o and 135o points


    Reference point9 l.jpg

    Reference Point

    • Enter perpendicular to the wind and make your turns into the wind

    • Do clearing turns before you start the maneuver


    Establish entry conditions l.jpg

    Establish Entry Conditions

    • Entry speed should be that recommended by the manufacturer, or below VA

      • Remember that VA varies with the weight of your airplane


    Plan orient and maneuver l.jpg

    Plan,Orient and Maneuver

    • Start from straight and level flight with a gradual climbing turn to the 45o point

    • Pitch must be increased faster than bank


    Plan orient and maneuver12 l.jpg

    Plan,Orient and Maneuver

    • Rate of roll must be must be slow to prevent the rate of turn from becoming excessive

    • As you raise the nose, airspeed decreases causing the rate of turn to increase


    Plan orient and maneuver13 l.jpg

    Plan,Orient and Maneuver

    • Unless you begin with a slow rate of roll the combination of increasing pitch and increasing bank will cause you to reach the 45o point before you reach the highest pitch angle


    Plan orient and maneuver14 l.jpg

    Plan,Orient and Maneuver

    • At the 45o point the pitch should be at its maximum and the angle of bank should be 15o

    AltitudeIncreasing

    Bank Angle15o


    Plan orient and maneuver16 l.jpg

    Plan,Orient and Maneuver

    • During the second 45o portion the pitch attitude decreases, the airspeed continues to decrease and the bank angle continues to increase


    Plan orient and maneuver17 l.jpg

    Plan,Orient and Maneuver

    • Due to decreasing airspeed the effects of torque must be counteracted

      • More rudder is needed in a right turn

      • In a left turn less is need since torque is acting in the direction of turn


    Plan orient and maneuver18 l.jpg

    Plan,Orient and Maneuver

    • In a right climbing turn the controls may be cross controlled since left aileron may be needed to prevent overbanking and right rudder is needed to correct for torque


    Plan orient and maneuver19 l.jpg

    Plan,Orient and Maneuver

    • At the 90o point the plane should be at maximum altitude, minimum airspeed (5 to 10 knots above stall speed, FTM Bonanza 80 knots) and 30o angle of bank

    Plan orient and maneuver21 l.jpg

    Plan,Orient and Maneuver

    • During the third 45o segment the bank should be decreased while the nose continues to be lowered


    Plan orient and maneuver22 l.jpg

    Plan,Orient and Maneuver

    • The nose must be lowered as slowly as it was raised to prevent diving and losing too much altitude

    Bank Angle15o


    Plan orient and maneuver24 l.jpg

    Plan,Orient and Maneuver

    • During the last 45o segment you must plan your rollout and pitch change so the wings become level and the entry airspeed and altitude are attained just as you reach the 180o point


    Plan orient and maneuver25 l.jpg

    Plan,Orient and Maneuver

    • During this descending turn airspeed will be increasing, so you will need to relax some of the right rudder pressure you were holding

    Maneuver l.jpg

    Maneuver

    • Constant change of pitch, bank and rate of turn

    • Attitude and airspeed consistent at the 90o points + 100 ft and + 10 knots


    Maneuver28 l.jpg

    Maneuver

    • At the completion of the maneuver you should be within + 100 feet and + 10 knots of the starting altitude and airspeed

    • Heading should be within + 10o


    Common errors l.jpg

    Common Errors

    • Poor selection of reference points

      • Easily identified

      • Not too close

    • Uncoordinated use of the flight controls


    Common errors30 l.jpg

    Common Errors

    • Maintain coordinated flight

    • Compensate for torque

    • Check inclinometer

  • Unsymmetrical loops from poor pitch and bank attitude changes


  • Common errors31 l.jpg

    Common Errors

    • Stalling before reaching the 90o point

    • Excessive diving

    • Rushing the angle of bank

  • Inconsistent airspeed and/or altitude at key points


  • Common errors32 l.jpg

    Common Errors

    • Adjust power after the first maneuver if off entry airspeed or altitude Loss of orientation. Need to observe your reference point as well as your attitude indicator, altimeter and airspeed indicator


    Common errors33 l.jpg

    Common Errors

    • Excessive deviation from reference points

      • Each 45o segment must be preplanned and the proper pitch and bank attained
