JOINT ADVANCED MULTI-ENGINE T-44A
P briefs CP on the approach and landing in accordance with the FTI and Appendix A. At the
completion of the brief, P asks "Any questions?" P answers any questions, and then responds
"Briefed." P ensures crew/passengers are ready for landing.
CP states "Abbreviated Approach Checklist complete" or continues with the full checklist.
CP sets the pressurization controller to the destination elevation plus 500 feet (corrected for reported
altimeter setting), or verifies the correct setting if previously performed. Refer to NATOPS Figure
2-23 (Part 1, page 2-48).
CP reports "Approach Checklist complete."
The Landing Checklist is never held. It must be completed no later than the 90º position or 1 mile
on a straight-in. P always calls "Gear down, Landing Checklist" when calling for gear handle to be
placed down, whether landing is intended or not. If the gear is retracted or the checklist is
interrupted for any reason, the entire checklist must be completed again prior to landing.
"FULL" "APPROACH" or "UP" (P)
P checks the flap handle and flap indicator agree and reports position. A visual check of flap
position is not required unless experiencing a malfunction.
NOTE: P ensures speed 174 KIAS or less and selects APPROACH flaps when desired, as determined by
maneuver being conducted. Do not call for Landing Checklist until requesting gear handle to be placed down.
"DOWN/LOCKED" (P, CP)
P ensures speed 155 KIAS or less and calls "Gear down, Landing Checklist." CP ensures 155 KIAS
or less and places gear handle down. P waits for all three indicators to turn green and the light in the
gear handle to go out, then reports "Down and locked." CP verifies three green lights and gear
handle down with no red light, then responds "Down and locked."
P turns on landing and taxi lights.
CP reports "Landing Checklist complete."
AFTER LANDING CHECKLIST
The After Landing Checklist must be completed after each full stop landing (unless taxiing back on
the active runway for immediate takeoff). The P should not call for or perform individual items of
the After Landing Checklist until clear of the active runway.
To avoid a traffic jam on the taxiway, it is advisable to contact ground for taxi after clearing the
active runway, then call for the checklist as you taxi inbound. Ensure the PAC delegates appropriate
checklist items to CP to allow full concentration on taxiing the aircraft safely.
"LOW IDLE" (P)
P slowly places condition levers to LOW IDLE.
NOTE: Whenever moving the condition levers to LOW IDLE, pinch the levers together, then move the levers very
slowly. If a LOW IDLE stop is weak, or a lever is moved rapidly, flameout may result. Should flameout occur, do
not move the condition lever back to LOW IDLE; bring it fully into FUEL CUTOFF. After notifying Ground, the
engine may be restarted using the appropriate checklist.
"OFF" or "STANDBY" (CP)
CP normally selects radar OFF. STBY would only be applicable if further flight is intended.
