2. Complete Electrical Failure. An immediate failure of the entire electrical system is rare.
Most complete electrical failures occur due to a generator failure and the subsequent exhaustion
of battery power.
Landing Pattern. If a complete electrical failure occurs in the landing pattern, recheck
gear handle down and make your next approach to a full-stop landing. Be sure to maintain
proper interval. Without exterior lighting, only the pilot can maintain aircraft separation.
Be sure to taxi clear of the duty runway on a lighted taxiway, shut down the aircraft and
stand by with your flashlight to mark your position for emergency crews and taxiing
aircraft. Do not taxi without lights; shut down your aircraft when clear of the duty runway.
The torquemeter is inoperative with a complete electrical failure. At
100 KIAS and the gear down, a VSI indication of 1000-1200 FPM rate
of descent will equate to approximately 205 ft-lbs. of torque.
