Thread: Slipping with full flaps

    Slipping with full flaps

    I've heard that it's not good to slip with full flaps. I think the
    danger is that you could stall the elevator. I think it's supposed to
    apply mostly to a high wing plane.

    I've slipped with full flaps in a Cessna 150 and in my Mouse and not
    had a problem.

    What's the conventional wisdom on slipping a Mouse with full flaps?

    Should it be avoided? If not any special precaution other than don't
    let the airspeed get too low?

    Slipping with full flaps

    Well, I think that one concern is that at slower
    speeds in a slip, your airspeed indicator won't be all
    that acurate (so how do you know for sure that you
    have enough speed. Also, in a high wing plane, with
    full flaps, you might be interfering with the wind
    that is moving over the elevators. If this is
    actually a concern, then this clearly shouldn't happen
    with a low wing plane (right?). And last, in our
    planes in particular, you need to be mindful about the
    possibility of pushing your fuel away from your fuel
    pickup tubes in a slip.

    High wing/low wing?

    Believe it's the body of the plane that blocks the flow over the 'downwind'
    horizontal stab when in a slip. Air is spilling over the top of the plane onto
    the stab instead of cleanly fore-and-aft across the tail. Don't see how the wing
    has anything to do with disturbing the air flow. Now, in a stall, different
    story - that's the burble you feel on some planes, but planes are pretty much
    designed around that - except some T-Tailed Jets.

    I used a full slip in a Cessna 206 w/ Full Flaps to get a descent rate of
    well-over 2,000 fpm without exceeding 75Kts to search a very steep series of
    canyons at Lake Chelan. Total descent of over 4,000 ft each pass. My legs were
    very tired pushing full left rudder going down, and nearly full right climbing
    back up (around the long - much flatter way!)

    When you are done needing to slip, or the plane starts to feel 'funny,' stop
    slipping.

    Slipping with full flaps

    Instructor told me as a student (don't know how right he was) that C-172
    flaps had a history of pulling off. When they did, he told me, they
    could pivot back on the inside hinge and slice into the cabin like a big
    knife.
    (Your experience may vary.)
    So...I don't slip 172's but I do slip the Sundowner on occasion.

    Slipping with full flaps

    Don't know about the other models but on the Sierra, the POH clearly states
    a manoeuvre limit of a "maximum 30 second slip duration" due to the
    possibility of fuel starvation by rolling the fuel in the tanks away from
    the fuel inlets in the bottom.

    Slipping with full flaps

    Good morning Ed,

    I think also some common sense needs to be applied. With ample fuel, it
    would be extremely difficult to unport the fuel line. On the other hand, if
    I were getting down to fumes I would be extremely hesitant to slip at all
    (at least away from that wing).

    John

    Slipping with full flaps

    Here is what I have done on Slips.

    ONLY TRY THIS IF YOU HAVE MORE THAN 1/2 TANKS OF FUEL......

    Last year I did a series of flight tests on my Sport 150. One of these were
    stalls with flaps up and flaps down to very the stall warning horn and IAS
    of the stall. During one of these tests with full flaps I performed a
    foreword slip to the left. The fuel selector was on the left tank and there
    was approx. 15 gal. of fuel in that tank.

    I wanted to see just how long I could really slip before the engine starved
    of fuel and quit. It say's in the POH to NOT SLIP MORE THAN 30 SEC. and no
    take offs when in the yellow band. Well guess what, I was only in the slip
    for 21 Sec. before the engine gave up the ghost. I repeated this test three
    more time and always got the same result. I then switched to the right tank
    which had approx. 15 gal of fuel also. I preformed the same test to the left
    and I could slip for more than one minute. I repeated this same test for the
    right tank. On the right tank I could slip for around 45 Sec. but I believe
    that it contained more fuel then I had calculated.

    The moral to the story is before you slip to a landing, verify what tank is
    in use and slip to the other side. Due to where our fuel pickup points are
    located in the wings you want to make sure you are on the fullest tank and
    then slip to the opposite tank.

    As far as slips go, Flaps up or flaps down made no difference in handling.
    Never let you airspeed get out of the white arc. or get out of hand. I slip
    at 80 MPH and I get a good descent rate and not much excess airspeed when I
    terminate the maneuver.

    Slipping with full flaps

    When I was a glider tow pilot, descents, in our 180HP Super Cub were made at
    2000 RPM or so to maintain engine temps and in a full rudder slip to get
    down quickly. The engine would always quit if you were slipping into a
    nearly empty tank. Relaxing the slip restarted the engine. Flaps made no
    difference.

    The notion of not slipping with full flaps comes from the Cessna 172. Some
    models were placarded against this because the flaps could blank out the
    elevator in a full flap slip.

    Slipping with full flaps

    Another quick way down is a really steep bank. If you roll the aircraft
    over to a 60 or 70 degree bank, you can come down really fast even at full
    throttle. As long as you level the wings before breaking the dive, there is
    little strain on the aircraft.

    When I was a glider tow pilot, descents, in our 180HP Super Cub were made at

    2000 RPM or so to maintain engine temps and in a full rudder slip to get
    down quickly. The engine would always quit if you were slipping into a
    nearly empty tank. Relaxing the slip restarted the engine. Flaps made no
    difference.

    The notion of not slipping with full flaps comes from the Cessna 172. Some
    models were placarded against this because the flaps could blank out the
    elevator in a full flap slip.

    Slipping with full flaps

    Jeff,
    When you say "slip to the left" are you referring to "bank left/right
    rudder"? Or "bank right/left rudder"? Just trying to calibrate this
    maneuver; I think I know what you mean. Just trying to make sure.
