2. If fire pull handle light out is extinguished:
3. If fire pull handle light is still illuminated:
Engine fire in flight procedures (identified)
Flight into the sun at high aircraft pitch
attitude may actuate the fire warning
changing headings will confirm a warning
system failure caused by sun rays.
(3) Engine fire in flight (identified). If an engine fire
is confirmed in flight, perform the following: i CAUTION
malfunctions, the fire should be visually identified before
the engine is secured and the extinguisher actuated.
1. Power lever- IDLE.
2. Propeller lever - FEATHER.
