JOINT ADVANCED MULTI-ENGINE T-44A
After completing FAM stage, the P is not required to report individual instruments while performing
the checks, other than headings, and any abnormalities. A typical response would be: (P) "Check
your flight instruments, I'll check mine. RMI 130, HSI 128." P and CP report any abnormalities
then report, "Checked."
"CHECKED, SET" (P, CP)
P and CP perform the following checks:
Check the current altimeter setting is selected with no CODE OFF flag visible. Ensure the
barometric altimeter indicates within +75 feet of airport elevation and compare P and CP altimeter
NOTE: Field elevation at NGP is 19 feet. Elevations on the field range from 12 to 19 feet. If desired, see the
airport diagram for specific elevations.
(1). P sets DH bug above 55 feet then presses and holds TEST pushbutton. Check:
50 +5 feet indicated on radalt pointer, DH light illuminated, warning flag displayed.
b. 50 +5 feet indicated on flight director radalt bug (crosshatched indicator next to attitude gyro).
CP performs same check.
DH light illuminated on marker beacon/DH light panel (one light). CP performs same check.
(2). While still holding TEST button, P adjusts DH bug downward until it is below the radalt pointer
(which is still indicating 50 +5 feet). P notes two DH lights out. CP notes one DH light out.
(3). P releases TEST button. P notes two DH lights on as RADALT pointer falls below DH bug.
CP notes one DH light on.
(4). P sets DH bug to desired HAT (Height Above Touchdown) or HAA (usually 200 feet HAT for
PAR/ILS or appropriate HAT/HAA for non-precision approach).
NOTE: Do not confuse HAT with HAA. HAT refers to straight-in approach minimums (precision or non-
precision). HAA refers to circling approach minimums.
A typical response would be: (P) "Altimeter set 3012, reading 25 feet." (CP) "Set 3012, reading 40
feet." (P) "I have a bug and two lights. Lights out. Lights back on. RADALT set 200." CP
verifies bug, notes DH light on then out, and reports any discrepancies.
"CHECKED, SET" (P, CP)
Utilize the mixer switch panel for a "visual checklist" while performing these checks. P performs
checks while directing CP to check applicable equipment. Do not check active comm system while
(1). Ensure VHF OFF switch is on. Press COM 1 key on CDPU (Control Data Processing Unit) and
enter 134.85 (NGP Tower). Press PRE. Verify 134.85 transfers to COM 1 PRESET. 140.325
(Base) should already be in ACTIVE. Press display reversing push switch (green button on the right
side of COM 1 RRU). Verify ACTIVE and PRESET frequencies exchange positions. Press switch
again to restore original display.
(2). Press VHF 121.5 EMER switch on MSU (Message Switching Unit). Verify switch latches
down in emergency transmit position with red light on. Press switch again. Verify switch extended
outward with red light out.
(3). If not previously checked, select COM 1 SQ DSBL on MSU. P and CP adjust VHF volume as
required, then de-select SQ DSBL.
