If an airstart is attempted and unsuccessful, sufficient battery
power may not be available to lower the flaps or gear
If airstart is not attempted or is unsuccessful:
No landing site available and altitude permits - BAIL OUT.
If forced landing is to be continued:
Condition lever - FUEL OFF.
Emergency Fuel Shutoff Handle - PULL
MAYDAY (UHF), 7700 (transponder) - BROADCAST.
Maneuver the aircraft to the high key position.
Maintain 100 KIAS maneuvering to high key. To dissipate excess
altitude to arrive at a proper high key, use "S" turns, slip or a
combination of the two. You may also lower the flaps early
(unpaved field) or the gear early (paved field only) if necessary. Do
not become so totally absorbed in the Airstart procedures that you do
not fly the aircraft to a safe landing. Continually scan altitude,
airspeed and position as you fly the ELP profile. If the gear/flaps
were not previously used to dissipate altitude, lower either the gear
or flaps at high key (depending on what type field at which you are
landing), altitude permitting, and RETRIM. If low at high key, it
may be necessary to hold the gear/flaps (or retract them if previously
lowered) until back on altitude within the ELP profile. If holding the
gear/flaps, report it to the instructor.
Gear and Flaps - AS REQUIRED. Conduct the Landing Checklist and report it to
Canopy - EMERGENCY OPEN.
Battery Switch - OFF.
Fly the ELP profile as follows (Figure 8-1):
Report high key to your instructor (and crash or tower as appropriate
with local course rules).
