OPERATING PROCEDURES AND MANEUVERS
OPERATING PROCEDURES AND MANEU-
This section deals with normal procedures and in-
cludes all steps necessary for safe and efficient opera-
tion of the aircraft from the time a preflight begins until the
flight is completed and the aircraft is parked and secured.
Unique feel, characteristics, and reaction of the aircraft
during various phases of operation, and the techniques
and procedures used for taxing, takeoff, climb, etc., are
described, including precautions to be observed. Only
the duties of the minimum crew necessary for the actual
operation of the aircraft are included. For operation of
avionics equipment, refer to the operating handbooks
that accompany the aircraft loose tools.
Items which apply only to night or only to instrument
flying shall have an N or I respectively, immediately pre-
ceding the check to which it is pertinent. The symbol (O)
shall be used to indicated if installed. Those duties
which are responsibility of the copilot, at the command of
the pilot, will be indicated by a circle around the step num-
ber, i.e., 4. Circuit Breakers In. The star symbol in-
dicates that an operational check is required. The
asterisk symbol * indicates that performance of a step is
mandatory for all thru-flights. The asterisk applies only to
checks performed prior to takeoff. Placarded items ap-
pear in upper case.
Normal procedures are given primarily in checklist
form and are amplified as necessary in accompanying
paragraph form when a detailed description of a proce-
dure or maneuver is required. The condensed version of
the amplified checklist is contained in the Operators and
Crewmembers Checklist, TM 1-1510-223-CL. To pro-
vide for easier cross referencing, the procedural steps
are numbered to coincide with the corresponding num-
bered steps in this manual.
The pilots walkaround and interior checks are out-
lined in the following procedures. The preflight check is
not intended to be a detailed mechanical inspection. The
steps that are essential for safe aircraft operation are in-
BEFORE EXTERIOR CHECK.
1. GPU Connect as required.
* 2. Publications Check DA Forms 2408-12,
-13, -14, and -18, DD Form 365-4, locally re-
quired forms and publications, and availability
of operators manual (-10) and checklist (-CL).
3. Oxygen system Check that oxygen quantity
is sufficient for the entire mission, that crew
masks operate normally, that the diluter selec-
tor is set at 100%.
a. OXYGEN SUPPLY PRESSURE gages
b. SUPPLY control lever (green) ON.
c. Diluter control lever 100% OXYGEN.
d. EMERGENCY control lever (red) Set to
TEST MASK position while holding mask
directly away from face, then return to
e. Oxygen mask put on and adjust.
f. EMERGENCY pressure control lever
Set to TEST MASK position and check
mask for leaks, then return lever to NOR-
g. FLOW indicator Check. During inhala-
tion blinker appears, during exhalation
blinker disappears. Repeat a minimum of
h. Oxygen masks Remove and store.
If high or gusty winds are present, and the flight
controls are unlocked, control surfaces may be
damaged by buffeting.
* 4. Flight controls Unlock and check.
* 5. PARKING BRAKE Set.
The elevator trim system shall not be forced past
the limits which are shown on the PITCH TRIM
6. Elevator trim Set to 0 (neutral).
