JOINT ADVANCED MULTI-ENGINE T-44A
exceeding ITT limits.
Right engine-Monitor ITT
If ITT is likely to exceed 790º C, abort the start. Re-attempt the start with the right engine at 85%
NOTE: A small rise in ITT is normal.
Condition lever-LOW IDLE
P moves left condition lever to LOW IDLE N1 stabilizes and the right generator has been turned on.
P mentally counts 10 seconds as timing back-up. CP commences timing for 10 seconds when P
moves condition lever to LOW IDLE.
Fuel flow Note (approximately 100 lbs/hr)
ITT and N1 Monitor (both engines)
DO NOT remove hand from condition lever during the start attempt. If ITT is likely to exceed 925º C, move the
condition lever to FUEL CUTOFF. If a stop start is required, maintain slight inboard pressure on the lever to
prevent binding on the idle stop. Start ITT must not exceed 1,090º C for 2 seconds.
If no rise in ITT is observed within 10 seconds, move the condition lever to FUEL CUTOFF and secure the
starter. Allow 60 seconds for fuel drain and starter cooling. Select STARTER ONLY for a minimum of 15
seconds, then allow the starter to cool for an additional 60 seconds prior to attempting another start.
Starter OFF (50% N1 minimum)
Stop elapsed time clock-check starter time.
Starter use is time-limited to 40 seconds on, 60 seconds off, 40 seconds on, 60 seconds off, 40 seconds on, then 30
Engine instruments Check for normal indications at LOW IDLE
P then signals "thumbs up" to the lineman indicating a normal start, ensure oil pressure minimum of
10. Generator (right engine) OFF
11. Fuel quantity indicators Check
P ensures both quantity indicators normal.
NOTE: If either indicator reads zero, the corresponding current limiter may have failed.
12. Generators RESET, ON
P turns on right generator, notes RH GEN annunciator light out and load indication.
P turns on left generator, notes LH GEN annunciator light out and load indication.
Check that generator loads are within 0.1.
13. Power levers IDLE
14. Fuel control heat ON
P turns on fuel control heat individually and notes a small increase in electrical load. If no increase
is noted when turning on, try turning off to see if a small decrease is noted, then turn back on.
