Takeoff abort procedures 22.214.171.124.1, 126.96.36.199.2
A. Interval takeoff 188.8.131.52.1
NOTE: There are many circumstances that may require aborting a takeoff.
Some of these circumstances are unacceptable engine acceleration
characteristics, less than normal takeoff EGT/rpm, illumination of the FIRE
warning light, trim failures, loss of oil pressure, fuel transfer failures, smoke in
the cockpit, abnormally slow aircraft acceleration to takeoff speed, blown tire,
uncommanded swerving, and loss of canopy. Early detection of an aircraft
malfunction during takeoff roll is of primary importance. The decision to abort
or continue takeoff must be based on the nature of the malfunction, aircraft
speed, runway remaining, braking conditions, and whether or not the aircraft
can become airborne prior to leaving the runway.
If decision to abort is made
Speed brakes-- EXTEND
Brakes-- AS REQUIRED
Hook-- DOWN 1000 FT PRIOR TO ARRESTING GEAR, IF
NOTE: If off center just prior to engaging the arresting gear, do not
attempt to go for the center of the runway. Continue straight ahead
parallel to the runway centerline.
