Once the runway environment is in sight, reducing power to 15-16 inches with the same pitch attitude almost immediately puts me in the white arc for flap extension prior to landing.
It takes about 30 minutes to install or remove the pod, with most of the time taken up with installing and safety wiring the cowl flap extension hardware.
At speeds near max flap extension in ice, the risk is stalling the tail if the flaps are extended.
Upon slat actuation, a malfunction caused by the failure of the slat torque motors left the slats stuck at an intermediate setting but more importantly prohibited any flap extension. After quick trouble shooting, the crew decided to execute a go-around and then enter the holding pattern in order to further analyze the situation.
The EA-6B horizontal stabilizer must shift to this position upon flap extension to provide adequate pitch authority for flight in the landing configuration.
Flap extension does two things to an ice-contaminated horizontal stabilizer, both bad.
It's also why the same thing happened after I bunted the nose during the initial flap extension. The period of flight when I had normal controls was because the bolt just happened to have found its way back into its hole.
The need for nose-up trim is due to flap extension. On this airplane, trim setting has little effect during a go-around even with additional airflow over the horizontal stabilizer, but flaps do.
Most important to remember is that there's almost never been a documented tailplane stall that did not occur asa result of flap extension. Don't extend any flaps and your chance of experiencing a tail plane stall plummets.
With flap extension and power reduction, in most aircraft, you'll need to retrim the airplane nose up in order to maintain hands-off flying.
If you've ever flown previous generation SR22s, you're familiar with the challenges of slowing the aircraft to the 119-knot initial flap extension speed.
Yet I'm surprised by how many piston-twin pilots don't know how many inches of MP it will take to maintain blue-line on the glideslope with gear down; or with the gear down and partial flap extension.
