ENG FIRE IN FLIGHT
- A. FIRE CONFIRMED
- 1. CABIN HEAT & VENT - OFF
- 2. FUEL SELECTOR - OFF
- 3. THROTTLE - FULL FWD
- 4. MAGNETOS - OFF
- 5. EXECUTE BAIL-OUT, FORCED LDG OR DITCING - AS APPLICABLEWARN:
- Do not attempt to restart.
- B. FIRE NOT CONFIRMED
- 1. LAND - AS SOON AS PRACTICAL
- 1. GENERATOR - OFF
- 2. BATTERY - OFF
- 3. LAND - AS SOON AS POSSIBLE
- If fire and/or smoke continues
- 4. EPU battery - Off
- If necessary for continued flight
- 5. Unnecessary equipment - Off
- 6. Battery - On
- The electricak EMERGENCY POWER UNIT (EPU) will supply sufficient power to the ST_BY ATTITUDE INDICATOR, the VHF-2 COM radio and the MAP LIGHTS for approx 2 hours
- If equipment on the secondary bus is necessary for completion of flight the generator must be switched on.
OIL SYSTEM FAILURE
Oil pressure warn light illuminates (6.5 +/-2) and/or low oil pressure indication.
- 1. RPM & POWER - LOWEST PRACTICAL
- 2. LAND - As soon as possible(or practical if oil pressure is above 25 psi)
- Reduction of power and minimizinv G forced will generally prolong the engine operating time, prior to complete engine failure.
- In case of total loss of oil pressure loss the propeller blades move into coarse pitch (low RPM), and thereby reduce available power.
GEN caution light illuminates (below 25v +/- 0.5)
- 1. EPU switch - check on
- 2. Generator switch - Off
- 3. Unnecessary elec. equip. - off
- Switching the generator switch OFF disconnects the secondary bus. If equipment from the secondary bus is needed for completion of flight proceed as follows
- 4. Generator field C/B - Pull
- 5. Generator switch - On
- 6. Land - as soon as practical
- Pulling generator FIELD C/B disconnects the generator from the electrical system. The aircraft main battery will thereafter supply electrical power to the primary bus and secondary bus if the generator switch is on, for a period of approx 30 min., where the duration of the period depends upon:
- a) Battery capacity and condition
- b) Electrical load on primary and secondary busses
- c) battery temperature.
- EMERGENCY POWER UNIT (EPU) will under normal circumstances supply sufficient electrical power to the Emergency Bus for a period of at least 2 hours, time taken from the time when the generator stopped supplying electrical power.
- If electrical failure occurs during IMC, attempt to optain VMC as soon as possible. If VMC is not obtainable, land as soon as possible.
BAIL-OUT FRONT SEAT
Before bail-out, conditions permitting
- 1. Crew - warn
- 2. IFF/SIF - Emerg.
- 3. Radio - MAYDAY
- 4. Airspeed - 80 kts

- a. Minimum height for abandoning the aircraft is 1500' agl
- b. If the aircraft is out of control (spin, dive etc.), ABANDON before passing 3000' AGL
- Establihment of the minimum heights are based on following:
- - the aircraft is descending during bail - out
- - foreseenable reaction time
- - a minimum parachute deployment height of 500' AGL
- If insufficient altitude perform FORCED LDG
- 1. CANOPY - OPEN
- 2. SEAT BELTS -RELEASE
- 3. AIRCRAFT -ABANDON
after bail-out, when clear of aircraft
- 1. "D-RING" - PULL
- 2. DINGHY PACK -LOWER
- 3. LIFE JACKET - INFLATE
- 4. LANDING POS. - ASSUME
- after ldg.
- 1. HARNESS - RELEASE
- The SARBE (SLB 1000) must be activated manually

- 4. SEAT BELT - TIGHT&LOCKED
- 5. RADIO - MAYDAY
- 6. FUEL SELECT.- OFF
- 7. THROTTLE - FULL FWD

- Adjust bank and key positions throughout the pattern to compensate for wind, using a max of 45o bank.
- Aim to join the forced ldg pattern on one of the key positions, taking the prevailing wind into consideration
- for max glide distance (1,5nm / 1000') maintain 80kts
- SIMULATED FORCED LDG.
- 1. Throttle - Idle
- 2. Before or at HIGH KEY pos. perform BEFORE LDG CHECK
- The eng. must be cleared by opening the throttle to 26" MP for 3 sec for every 1000' of gliding at IDLE PWR to remove lead from spark plugs
- High key: 1500' AGL (30o/20o AOB)
- Low key:7-800' AGL (Flaps?)
- Final : 3-400' AGL (FLY THE A/C)
- 1. FORCED LDG CHECK - COMPLETE
- 2. CREW - WARN
- Just before ditching:
- 3. CANOPY/DOOR - OPEN
- After ditching:
- 4. AIRCRAFT - ABANDON
- Do not inflate life jacket until clear of aircraft.
- The SLB1000 must be activated manually.
- To eliminate the possibility of being trapped inside the aircraft, which is likely to flip inverted, select deeper rather than shallow water.
- Ditch aircraft up-wind in a full stall attitude, but in heavy sea along and on falling side of waves.
EPU BATTERY MALFUNCTION
EPU BATTERY malfunction is indicated by inoperative ST-BY ATTITUDE INDICATOR, VHF-2 COM radio and map lights.
1. EPU switch - check on
If EPU switch is on and the items above still are inoperative
- 2. EPU switch - Off
- 3. Land - As soon as prac.
CANOPY UNLOCKED DURING FLIGHT
Canopy warning light illuminates, the canopy audio signal sounds, or it it obvious the canopy is not proper locked during flight.
- 1. airspeed - 80 kias
- 2. Land - ASAP
- Do not touch canopu lock handle until ldg roll is complete.
- Avoid abrupt pitch changes and fly a straight-in approach.
If structural damage occurs in flight (over-G, over speed, bird strike etc.) proceed as follows:
- 1. configuration - do not change
- 2. Land - As soon as prac.
- Fly a pwr on straight in app requiring minimum flare.
If experiencing runaway trim or any other trim malfunction:
- 1. Pitch trim C/B - Pull
- 2. Trim - Use manual trim
- 3. Land - as soon as prac
TIRE / BRAKE FAILURE
If time permits, consider reducing fuel load before attampting to land.
- Main wheel tire failure dure t/o or ldg roll:
- - Avoid braking flat tire if possible
- Nose wheel tire failure:
- - Avoid braking if possible and keep nose high.
- With one main tire flat land on the side of the R/W corresponding to the good tire. If main tire tread separation occurs, the brake line may be damaged, resulting in inoperative brakes.
- With one brake inoperative, avoid braking. If braking is necessary land on the side of the R/W corresponding to the inoperative brake.
