above conditions. Since precise control of the aircraft and sound judgment are necessary to
effect a safe landing, a review of factors influencing track over the ground may be in order.
Procedures. Review appropriate emergency procedures.
Common Errors. N/A
ABORTED TAKEOFF DEMONSTRATION
Description. This maneuver demonstrates the characteristics and length of runway
required for an aborted takeoff.
General. An aborted takeoff may be required during any takeoff. Examples of reasons
for aborting a takeoff include blown tire(s), streaming fuel, fire light, chip light, fluctuating oil
pressure, rapidly rising ITT or bird strike. Any situation which appears abnormal or unsafe
during takeoff shall necessitate an abort.
Call tower for takeoff, stating intentions.
Position aircraft on runway for a normal takeoff.
When properly aligned on the runway (and cleared for aborted takeoff), add power
to 500 foot-pounds and check instruments.
Release brakes, advance PCL to 1015 ft-lbs., and commence normal takeoff roll.
Before 1500 feet of takeoff roll and prior to 60 KIAS, initiate the Aborting Takeoff
procedure as described in the NATOPS Manual.
Maneuver is complete when the aircraft has achieved a safe taxi speed.
Taxi clear of runway, or commence takeoff from present position, as required.
EMERGENCY LANDING PATTERN
Description. The profile of the ELP is a 360-degree overhead pattern designed to
position the aircraft for landing when no power is available or the possibility of a power loss
exists. The pattern may be conducted to a prepared surface (runway or established grass strip)
or to an unprepared surface such as a farmer's field. For the unprepared surface, the final
landing will be made with the gear up and flaps down.
General. The complete ELP profile will be flown for PEL and HAPL. PEL(P) and
LAPL(P)/LAPL will intercept the Profile somewhere after high key. The following description
and procedures cover the ELP pattern inclusively. Further procedures that are specific to PEL
and HAPL/LAPL are covered in the appropriate section.
The aircraft will enter the ELP Profile at 2500 feet AGL aligned with the landing direction and
¼ wingtip distance abeam the intended point of landing with the landing environment in sight.
The following definitions apply to the ELP profile (Figure 81).
