JOINT ADVANCED MULTI-ENGINE T-44A
CP sets pressurization controller to the destination elevation plus 500 feet (corrected for reported
altimeter setting). Refer to NATOPS Figure 2-23 (Part 1, page 2-48).
"OFF" "BOTH" or "PILOT" (P)
Normally OFF. If descending into icing conditions or from cold cruise altitude temperatures into
warm, humid air, select BOTH and note appropriate rise in generator load. Turn the system off
when no longer required.
NOTE: Use of windshield anti-ice distorts optical qualities of the windshield and impairs vision slightly. Use it
only when required.
NOTE: PILOT may be selected instead of BOTH if windshield anti-ice is required during single-engine or other
electrical load-restricted situations.
CP reports "Descent Checklist complete."
The Approach Checklist must be performed whenever the Climb Checklist is completed. The
Abbreviated Approach Checklist must be performed whenever the Abbreviated Climb Checklist is
completed. If P calls "Approach Checklist," CP commences checklist at Step 1 and completes the
entire checklist. If P calls "Abbreviated Approach Checklist," CP commences checklist at Step 5
and omits Step 9.
"BOTH" "FASTEN SEATBELT"or
If the OBS has been properly briefed, or if no occupants are in the aft cabin, sign may be left OFF.

P selects autofeather ARMED.
P ensures brake handle is fully depressed.

arrival and approach. Utilize the mixer switch panel for a visual checklist to ensure all applicable
NAVAIDs are set.

navigation on next segment. Store waypoints and presets during the enroute phase to decrease workload on
