GROUND RUNUP CHECKLIST
General. Engine checks are performed prior to each flight to determine the relative
condition of the engine. These checks do not guarantee proper operation. They merely check for
some of the more frequent causes of engine malfunction.
Procedures. The checklist will be conducted in accordance with NATOPS.
In event of inadvertent engine shutdown during the feather check,
do not advance the condition lever. Forward movement of the
condition lever immediately after engine shutdown can result in
severe engine over-temperature damage. The pilot shall monitor
engine instruments for normal shutdown and perform Abnormal
ITT During Shutdown procedure if required.
Selection of feather with the PCL in Beta range may result in over-
temperature and/or flameout. Indications of this condition include
rising ITT and decreasing N1 (towards 40%) and decreasing fuel
flow. In event of inadvertent selection of feather with PCL in Beta
range, the pilot shall perform the "EMERGENCY ENGINE
Omitting items from the checklist.
