T-34C INSTRUMENTS
advantage of winds that are more favorable or other in­flight conditions. Climbs of over 1000
feet are accomplished at 120 knots. Climbs of 1000 feet or less are accomplished at cruise speed.
2.
Procedure
a.
Report leaving current altitude for assigned altitude.
b.
If cleared to climb over 1000 feet: Transition to a 120­knot climb as follows:
i.
Add power to 1015 ft­lbs torque and monitor ITT.
ii.
Raise the nose to 12­15 degrees nose up. Trim right rudder, nose up as the
airspeed decreases.
iii.
As the airspeed approaches 120 knots, adjust the nose to approximately
6­8 degrees nose up and retrim.
To level off:
iv.
Initiate level off 200 feet prior to assigned altitude.
v.
Lower the nose toward the level flight attitude.
vi.
Two to three knots prior to the desired cruise airspeed reduce power to the
desired cruise power setting. Retrim.
c.
If cleared to climb 1000 feet or less: Execute the following procedures:
i.
Simultaneously add power to maximum allowable while raising the nose
slightly to maintain assigned cruise airspeed. Retrim.
To level off:
ii.
Initiate level off 50 feet prior to assigned altitude.
iii.
Reduce power to the desired cruise power setting while lowering the nose to
the level flight attitude. Retrim.
3.
Common Errors
a.
Failure to maintain correct airspeed for the climb.
b.
Failure to trim properly.

Amplification ­ A cruise power descent is a procedure used to descend to a lower altitude
while enroute to destination. A cruise power descent converts potential energy stored in the
