STUDY AND KNOW the emergency procedures for engine fires, power losses, bailout, etc.
in the T-34C NATOPS FLIGHT MANUAL.
Procedures. When informed that there has been a simulated power loss, carry out the
Flying speed - MAINTAIN (100 KIAS minimum). If fast, smoothly raise the nose
to trade excess airspeed for altitude. If you are at 100 KIAS or below, expeditiously
lower the nose to maintain 100 KIAS.
Landing gear and flaps - UP. Clean up aircraft by raising the gear and flaps, if
necessary, and report "aircraft clean" to your instructor.
Engine instruments - CHECK. Report actual N1 to your instructor. The instructor
will reply with a simulated condition of:
N1 at 0% - indicating a "frozen engine."
N1 decreasing to as low as 10-12% - indicating a "flameout."
N1 below flight idle, above 40% - indicating a "rollback."
N1 and ITT are the instruments that will enable you to analyze
the problem most quickly. Check the torquemeter. If indications
are indicative of a rollback, execute the Rollback procedure IAW
Simulate Condition lever - FEATHER. The instructor will simulate feather by
advancing the power to 205 ftlbs. torque to simulate actual aircraft performance
with a dead engine and a feathered propeller.
Landing site - SELECT. LOOK for the best available field and report your
intended landing site to your instructor.
Use a paved field if one is available. Determine the wind
direction and your landing direction. Fly the aircraft as
necessary to enter the ELP as you complete the remaining steps.
Harness - LOCKED. Check and report harness locked.
Airstart - PERFORM. If conditions warrant and above 1500 feet AGL, perform a
simulated airstart in accordance with NATOPS. Place your hand on each
control/switch as you report it to the instructor, but do not move any item.
