JOINT ADVANCED MULTI-ENGINE T-44A
Immediately after commencing a level clearing turn, set 400 ft-lbs.
Select flaps approach. Maintain altitude.
Select gear down and complete the Landing Checklist.
After 90º maintain AOB at 30º.
Reduce power to 300 ft-lbs while simultaneously adjusting pitch to 10º up. Trim to 100 KIAS then
stop trimming. Maintain 30º AOB and 10º nose up.
Immediately recover at the first indication of stall utilizing standard recovery procedures.
Standard Stall Recovery. The objective of any stall recovery is to immediately regain flying speed with
absolute minimum altitude loss. Avoid large attitude and rapid configuration changes. Utilize the
following procedures when recovering from a stalled condition:
Decrease AOA by reducing yoke back pressure slightly while simultaneously leveling the wings,
and smoothly applying maximum allowable power (top red line for torque, 790º ITT).
NOTE: Rapid power application may result in asymmetric spool-up and large oscillations in yaw. Smooth,
deliberate advancement of power levers will allow the engines to spool-up together and aid in directional control.
Anticipate the need for right rudder with power. After initial power application, recheck the gauges to ensure
maximum power is set. Do not exceed normal limits or two second acceleration limits (2100 ft-lbs or 850º ITT).
Arrest descent by increasing pitch and accelerate. Minimum altitude loss is desired.
Once the aircraft is level or climbing, with 85 KIAS or greater, immediately raise flaps to approach
(unless already at approach or up).
Raise the gear.
Raise flaps to full up.
The maneuver is complete when established in a climb on assigned heading, at or above 110 KIAS.
One technique to help remember the recovery steps for a dirty or approach turn stall is "relax, max, level,
ball 85 and level flaps, gear, flaps." This helps you remember to relax the control wheel, set max
allowable power, level the wings, center the ball wait until your airspeed is greater than 85 KIAS prior to
retracting flaps, check that you are level or climbing, set flaps to approach if full down, raise the gear and
then retract the flaps completely. Props stay at 1900 throughout the maneuver.
There is no assigned heading for approach turn stall recovery.
For all approaches to stalls, compute stall speeds prior to each flight. If no stall indications are
achieved prior to the computed stall speed, the IP will direct and/or initiate a recovery. IPs need to
determine if the stall warning system is not working and if they should down the aircraft and
terminate the flight.
Stall Indications. Initiate recovery at the first indication of any of the following:
Stall warning horn.
Uncontrollable loss of altitude.
Inability to maintain wings level/selected roll attitude.
25 units AOA.
