Free Air Temperature is the free air static temperature obtained either
from the temperature indicator (IFAT), adjusted for compressibility
effects, or from ground meteorlogical sources.
The number actually read from an altimeter when, the barometric scale

The air is a dry perfect gas.
The temperature at sea level is 59 degrees Fahrenheit, 15
The pressure at sea level is 29.92 inches Hg.
The temperature gradient from sea level to the altitude at which
the temperature is -69.7 degrees Fahrenheit is -0.003566 Fahren-
heit per foot and zero above that altitude.
Indicated pressure altitude corrected for altimeter error.
The wind velocities recorded as variables on the charts of this manual
are to be understood as the headwind or tailwind components of the
actual winds at 50 feet above runway surface (tower winds).
The region of the power lever control which is aft of the idle stop and
forward of reversing range where blade pitch angle can be changed
without a change of gas generator RPM.
Is the maximum power approved for normal climb. This power is

Obtained by placing the condition lever in the HIGH IDLE position.
Obtained by placing the condition lever in the LO IDLE position.
Is the highest power rating for cruise and is not time limited.
