10 seconds after moving condition lever to
procedure, Paragraph 8A-25. If for any
reason a starting attempt is discontinued,
the entire starting sequence must be
repeated after allowing the engine to come
to a complete stop (1-minute minimum).
b. CONDITION lever (after N1 RPM stabilizes
at or above 12% for 5 seconds) LOW
Monitor ITT to avoid a hot start. If there is
a rapid rise in ITT, be prepared to abort the
start before limits are exceeded. During
engine start, the maximum allowable ITT is
1000 °C for 5 seconds. If this limit is
exceeded, use Abort Start procedure,
Paragraph 8A-24, and discontinue start.
Record the peak temperature and duration
on DA Form 2408-13-1.
c. ITT and N1 Monitor. ITT 1000 °C
maximum. N1 minimum 58%.
d. Oil pressure Check (60 psi minimum).
e. IGNITION AND ENGINE START switch
OFF after 50% N1.
3. Engine and systems instruments Check.
4. Right PROP lever FEATHER.
5. GPU Disconnect.
6. Right PROP lever HIGH RPM.
7. INVERTER switch ON, check INVERTER
a. Check the operation of the INVERTER to
be used as the standby INVERTER, then
OFF; turn ON the INVERTER to be used
for the flight.
8. GEN switches RESET, then ON.
a. AC/DC power Check frequencies, volts
b. Frequency and volts:
(1) AC frequency 390 Hz to 410 Hz.
(2) AC voltage 110 Vac to 120 Vac.
(3) DC voltage 27.5 Vdc to 29.0 Vdc.
c. DC loads: Parallel within 10%.
(1) 75% maximum LOW IDLE.
(2) 85% maximum HIGH IDLE.
(3) 85% maximum Ground operations.
9. CONDITION levers As required.
10. RED ANTICOLLISION light Reset.
To reset, turn off approximately 5 seconds,
then to the NIGHT (red) position. When
voltage drops below approximately 20
volts, the anticollision light may become
inoperative. Normally, NIGHT (red) strobe
is used for ground operations and DAY
(white) is used for flight operations.
8A-28. BEFORE TAXIING.
1. AC/DC power Check.
2. AVIONICS MASTER POWER ON.
3. EFIS POWER switches ON.
4. CABIN TEMP MODE and temperature switch
Set as desired.
5. BLEED AIR VALVES AS required.
Do not leave brake deice on longer than
required to check function of annunciators
when ambient temperatures are above
Brake deice control valves may become
inoperative if valves are not cycled
periodically. One cycle of the valves is
required daily regardless of the weather
6. BRAKE DEICE AS required.
7. Avionics Check and set as required.
8. TCAS TEST and set.
9. FLAPS Check.
10. Altimeters Set and check.
