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 approximately 12% - indicating a "flameout."
N1 approximately 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 the T-
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.
Harness - LOCKED. Check and report harness locked.
Deciding where to enter the ELP is a function of aircraft position and
altitude. If the situation allows, enter as closely as possible to high
key. However, you may have to enter at low key, the 90 or even as
late as final. With an actual power loss at very low altitude, you may
have no viable recourse other than to land straight ahead. It is much
better to make a controlled landing in the treetops than to stall the
aircraft trying to make an unreachable field.
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.
