9-17. SINGLE-ENGINE LANDING CHECK.
Perform the following procedure during final approach
Autopilot/yaw damp - Disengaged.
Gear lights - Check (three green).
Propeller lever (operative engine) - HIGH
characteristics, the propeller control must
be in the HIGH RPM position.
9-18. SINGLE-ENGINE GO-AROUND.
The decision to go around must be made as early as
possible. Elevator forces at the start of a go-around are
very high and a considerable amount of rudder control will
also be required at low airspeeds. Retrim as required. If
rudder application is insufficient, or applied too slowly,
directional control cannot be maintained. If control
difficulties are experienced, reduce power on the
operating engine immediately. Insure that the aircraft
does not touch the ground before retracting the landing
gear. Retract the flaps only as safe airspeed permits
(TAKEOFF until (V
) then UP). Perform single-engine
go-around as follows:
Once flaps are fully extended, a single
engine go-around may not be possible
when close to the ground under conditions
of high gross weights and/or high density
1. Power - Maximum controllable.
2. Gear- UP.
3. Flaps - As required.
Landing lights - OFF.
Power - As required.
Yaw damp - As required.
9-19. PROPELLER FAILURE (OVER 2080 RPM).
If an overspeed condition occurs that cannot be
controlled with the propeller lever, or by reducing power,
perform the following:
1. Power lever (affected engine) - IDLE.
2. Propeller lever - FEATHER.
Condition lever - As required.
Engine cleanup - As required.
The safety of aircraft occupants is the primary
consideration when a fire occurs; therefore, it is
imperative that every effort be made by the flight crew to
put the fire out. On the ground it is essential that the
engines be shut down, crew evacuated, and fire fighting
begun immediately. If the aircraft is airborne when a fire
occurs, the most important single action that can be taken
by the pilot is to land safely as soon as possible.
Engine Fire. The following procedures shall be
performed in case of engine fire:
Engine/nacelle fire during start or ground
operations. If engine/nacelle fire is identified during start
or ground operation, perform the following:
1. Propeller levers - FEATHER.
2. Condition levers - FUEL CUTOFF.
3. Fire pull handle - Pull.
If fire extinguisher has been used to
extinguish an engine fire, do not attempt to
restart, until maintenance personnel have
inspected the aircraft and released it for
4. Push to extinguish switch Push.
5. Master switch OFF.
Engine fire in flight (fire pull handle light
illuminated). If an engine fire is suspected in flight,
perform the following:
1. Power lever - IDLE.
