To aid in planning the takeoff and to 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 then releasing brakes. The
takeoff will be accomplished in accordance with the
appropriate Army Training Manual (ATM).

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.
