Cabin Emergency Hatch. The cabin emergency
hatch, placarded EXIT PULL, is located on the right cabin
sidewall just aft of the copilot's seat. The hatch may be
released, from the inside with a pull-down handle. A flush
mounted pull out handle allows the hatch to be released
from the outside. The hatch is of the non-hinged plug
type, which removes completely from the frame when the
latches are released. The hatch can be key locked from
the inside, to prevent opening from the outside. The
inside handle will unlatch the hatch whether or not it is
locked, by overriding the locking mechanism. The
keylock should be unlocked prior to flight to allow removal
of the hatch from the outside in the event of an
emergency. The key remains in the lock when the hatch
is locked and can be removed only when the hatch is
unlocked. The key slot is in the vertical position when the
hatch is unlocked. Removal of the key from the lock
before flight assures the pilot that the hatch can be
removed from the outside if necessary.
Cabin Door Caution Light. As a safety precaution,
two illuminated MASTER CAUTION lights, on the glare
shield and a steadily illuminated CABIN DOOR yellow
caution annunciator light on the caution/advisory panel
indicate the cabin door is not closed and locked. This
circuit is protected by 5-ampere circuit breakers placarded
ANN PWR and ANN IND, located on the overhead circuit
breaker panel (fig. 2-27).
a. Cockpit Window. 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 unpressurized flight.
Window. The outer cabin windows are of
two-ply construction, are the pressure type and are
integral parts of the pressure vessel. All cabin windows
are painted over except for the three windows located
farthest aft on the right side, and the two farthest aft on
the left side. The unpainted windows are provided with
flaps which may be raised or lowered when it is desired to
seal out light.
Pilot and Copilot Seats. The pilot and copilot
seats (fig. 2-10) are separated from the cabin by movable
curtains. The controls for vertical height adjustment and
fore and aft travel are located under each seat. The
forward and aft adjustment handle is located beneath the
bottom front inboard corner of each seat. Pulling up on
the handle allows the seat to move fore or aft. The height
adjustment handle is located beneath the bottom front
outboard corner of each seat. Pulling up on the handle,
allows the seat to move up and down. 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 inboard-slanted,
expandable pocket affixed to the lower portion of the seat
back. Pocket openings are held closed by shock cord
Pilot and Copilot Seat Belts and Shoulder
Harnesses. 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 of 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
