    On ground, do not rely on visual icing evidence or ice detector actuation to turn the Anti-Icing System. Use the temperature and visual moisture criteria as  specified above. Delaying the use of the Anti-Icing System unit ice build-up is visible from the cockpit may result in ice ingestion and possible engine damage.
  15. Icing Caution II
    Notwithstanding ice detector monitoring, the crew remains responsible for monitoring icing conditions and for manual activation of the Ice Protection System if icing conditions are present and the Ice Detection System is not activating the Ice Protection System.

  22. Glide Slope Indication FAA AD 2006-22-05
    When crossing the Outer Marker on glideslope, the altitude must be verified with the value on the published procedure. 

    For aircraft with a single operating glideslope receiver, the approach may be flown using normal procedures no lower than Localizer Only MDA.

    For aircraft with two operating glideslope receivers, the aircraft may be flown to the published minimums for the approach using normal procedures if both glideslope receivers are tuned to the approach and both crew members are monitoring the approach using independent data and displays.

    The aircraft must not be moved when the AHRS is in the initialization mode until all attitude and heading information presented on the PFD is displayed. 
  26. Engine Cool Down After Landing or High Power Runs. 
    Run each engine for a minimum of one minute at idle or taxi thrust before shutdown. 
  27. Engine Oil Level
    The minimum dispatch oil quantity is eight quarts before Engine Start or seven quarts after Engine Start.
  28. Engine Warm Up Period Prior to Takeoff
    The engines must be allowed to run at low thrust to stabilize engine temperatures before takeoff thrust is selected. Run the engines at idle or taxi thrust a minimum of four minutes for cold engines and tow minutes for warm engines. An engine is considered cold if it has been shutdown for more than 90 minutes. 

    Prior to increasing N2 above 83% the engine oil temperature must be a minimum of 40 degrees C.

    However, in lieu of this minimum oil temperature limit, it is acceptable to either:

    • Option I    Run the engines at idle or taxi thrust limit for at least eight minutes prior to increasing N2 above 83%.
    •                                OR

    Option II    In addition to the minimum two or four minutes warm up time, perform the takeoff by advancing the thrust levers to 88% N2 with toe brakes applied and ensure that the oil pressure is 83 PSI or less before releasing the brakes and advancing the thrust levers to the Thrust Set position.
