hatch is being removed. On reinstalling the hatch, the
electrical disconnect should be reconnected before
moving the hatch into the closed position.
2-13. CABIN DOOR CAUTION LIGHT.
As a safety precaution, two illuminated MASTER
CAUTION lights on the glare shield and a steady
illuminated CABIN DOOR yellow caution light on the
annunciator panel indicate the cabin door is not closed
and locked. This circuit is protected by two 5-ampere
circuit breakers, placarded ANN PWR and ANN IND,
located on the overhead circuit breaker panel.
Do not look directly at the sun through the
polarized windows. Possible eye damage
a. Cockpit Windows. The pilot and copilot
have side windows, a windshield, and storm windows,
which provide visibility from the cockpit. The storm
windows may be opened on the ground or during
flight. Lighting and visibility are provided in the cabin
by windows on each sidewall and by a pair of smaller
windows aft of the cabin entrance door.
b. Cabin Windows C . The outer cabin
windows of two-ply construction are the pressure type
and are integral parts of the pressure vessel. Inboard
of each pressure cabin window are two inner windows
of bonded laminate construction. Each consists of a
tinted neutral gray polarized film between two pieces
of clear acrylic. These windows are designed into a
sealed unit. The innermost window that faces the
inside of the cabin has a protruding knob near the
edge and turns freely in its frame. By rotating this
window the polarized windows may be so aligned as to
permit varying degrees of light to pass, thereby
regulating light intensity.
c. Cabin Windows D T . The outer cabin
windows of two-ply construction are the pressure type,
and are integral parts of the pressure vessel. Each
cabin window has a vertical sliding curtain to regulate
light through the window.
a. Pilot and Copilot Seats. The pilot's and
copilot's seats are separated from the cabin by a
removable partition with lockable sliding doors. Refer
to Figure 2-13. The controls for vertical height
adjustment and fore and aft travel are located under
each seat. The fore and aft adjustment handle is
located beneath the bottom front inboard corner of
each seat. Pulling up on the handle(s) releases the
seat position lock allowing the seat to move as
desired. Both seats have adjustable headrests and
armrests, which will raise and lower for access to the
cockpit. Handholds on either side of the overhead
panels and a fold away protective pedestal step are
provided for pilot and copilot entry into the cockpit. For
the storage of maps and the operator's manual, pilot
and copilot seats have an expandable pocket affixed
to the lower portion of the seat back. Pocket openings
are held closed by shock cord tension.
adjustment, certain controls and switches
may become inaccessible with the harness
locked. Each pilot and copilot should
determine for himself to what extent a
locked shoulder harness would interfere
with aircraft and systems control.
Each pilot and copilot seat is equipped with a
lap-type seat belt and shoulder harness connected to
an inertia reel. The shoulder harness belt is in the "Y"
configuration with the single strap being contained in
an inertia reel attached to the base of the seatback.
The two straps are worn with one strap over each
shoulder and fastened by metal loops into the seat belt
buckle. The spring loading at the inertia reel keeps the
harness snug but will allow normal movement required
during flight operations. The inertia reel is designed
with a locking device that will secure the harness in the
event of sudden forward movement or an impact
