5. Lights As required.
6. CONDITION levers HIGH IDLE.
7. POWER Stabilized 27% minimum.
To aid in planning the takeoff and obtain
maximum aircraft performance, make full use of the
information affecting takeoff shown in Chapter 7. The
data shown was achieved by setting brakes, setting
takeoff power, and releasing brakes. The takeoff will
be accomplished in accordance with the Aircrew
Training Manual (ATM).
8A-34. AFTER TAKEOFF.
Immediately after takeoff, the pilot flying
the aircraft should avoid adjusting controls
located on the aft portion of the extended
pedestal to preclude inducing spatial
1. GEAR UP.
2. FLAPS (105 KIAS) UP.
3. LANDING/TAXI lights OFF.
4. Climb power Set.
a. Cruise Climb. Cruise climb is performed at
a speed that is the best combination of climb, fuel
burn-off, and distance covered. Set propellers at
1900 RPM and torque at maximum allowable (or
maximum climb ITT, monitor N1). Adhere to the
following airspeed schedule as closely as possible
unless a Vy climb is required.
SL to 10,000 feet....
10,000 to 20,000 feet
20,000 to 25,000 feet
25,000 to 31,000 feet.
b. Climb Maximum Rate. Maximum rate of
climb performance is obtained by setting propellers at
2000 RPM, torque at maximum allowable (or
maximum climb ITT/TGT, monitor N1), and maintaining
Vy. Refer to Chapter 7 for Vy for specific weights.
c. Climb Checklist. Complete as follows.
1. YAW DAMP As required.
2. Cabin pressurization Check. Adjust rate
control knob so that cabin rate-of-climb
equals one third of aircraft rate-of-climb.
3. AUTOFEATHER switch As required.
4. BRAKE DEICE switch As required.
Turn the windshield heat on to NORMAL
when passing 10,000 feet MSL or prior to
entering the freezing level, whichever
comes first. Leave on until no longer
required during descent for landing. HIGH
temperature may be selected as required
after a minimum warmup period of
5. WSHLD ANTI-ICE As required.
6. Wings and nacelles Check.
7. TCAS Set range.
1. POWER Set. Refer to the cruise power
graphs contained in Chapter 7.
A new engine operated at the torque value
presented in the cruise power charts will
show an ITT/TGT margin below the
maximum cruise limit for the torque value
presented in the charts. With ice vanes
retracted (ICE VANES OFF), if cruise torque
settings shown on the power charts cannot
be obtained without exceeding ITT/TGT
limits, the engine should be inspected.
2. ICE & RAIN switches As required.
Ensure anti-ice equipment is activated
before entering icing conditions.
3. CABIN SIGNS switch As required.
4. Auxiliary fuel gauges Monitor. Ensure fuel
is being transferred from auxiliary tanks.
(Chapter 2, Section IV).
5. Altimeters Check. Verify altimeter
settings are correct.
6. Engine instruments Check. Note
7. RECOG lights As required.
8. TCAS Set for enroute.
8A-37. DESCENT ARRIVAL.
Perform the following checks prior to the final
descent for landing.
