I had the oral portion of my checkride Saturday, but the flying portion was postponed due to weather. The examiner seems like a by the book sort of guy, and mentioned that he cant give second chances on the checkride. He told me a few things I can expect, and one of them was emergency descents. The PTS doesn't really give specifics, and the POH for my Cessna 152 doesn't list emergency descent anywhere, the closest thing to that listed is engine fire in flight or an emergency descent through clouds. I have seen videos on emergency descents and they describe doing the following: Throttle to idle full flaps make a 45 degree descending turn at Vfe engine fire in flight: mixture to idle cutoff fuel valve off master off cabin heat and vents closed airspeed 85 KIAS emergency descent through clouds: mixture full rich carb heat on reduce power to 500-800 ft/ min descent trim to establish 70 KIAS So which one should I use?
