8

AIR CONDITIONING

Packs operation for Takeoff, Approach, and Landing

With engine bleed air switches ON, do not operate air conditioning packs in HIGH for takeoff, approach or landing.

9

ENGINE ANTI-ICE (AFM)

When must the engine Anti-Ice be ON?

The engine anti-ice system must be ON during all ground and flight operations when icing conditions exist or are anticipated, except during climb and cruise below -40°C SAT. Engine anti-ice must be ON prior to and during descent in all icing conditions, including temperatures below -40°C SAT.

10

AUTOPILOT Limitations

Do not engage the autopilot below 1000 ft AGL on takeoff. (AFM/ASA)

For single channel operation during approach, the autopilot shall not remain engaged below 50 ft AGL. (AFM).

For manually flown HGS AIII approach, the autopilot shall not remain engaged below 500 ft AGL.

Use of aileron trim with autopilot engaged is prohibited. (AFM)

11

ENGINES

Warm-up and Cool-down time?

Warm-up: Engines must be operated for a minimum of 3 minutes prior to takeoff. (ASA)

Cool-down: Engines must be operated at or near idle (taxi thrust acceptable) for a minimum of 3 minutes prior to shutdown. (ASA)

12

ENGINE EGT (AFM)

Maximum Time Limit for Takeoff Thrust

NG - 5 min*
*10 minutes allowed in the event of the loss of thrust on one engine during takeoff)


400 - 5 min

13

ENGINE EGT (AFM)

Maximum Start EGT

725 C

14

ENGINE IGNITION (AFM / ASA)

ENGINE START Switches must be in the CONT position for:

• Takeoff
• Landing
• Anti-ice operation
• Operation in hail, sleet or moderate to heavy rain

15

ENGINE IGNITION (AFM / ASA)

ENGINE START Switches must be in the FLT position for:

• Operation in severe turbulence

16

ENGINE START

Starter Duty Cycle (normal start)

First attempt: 2 minutes on

17

REVERSE THRUST (AFM)

When is operation prohibited?

Intentional selection of reverse thrust in flight is prohibited

18

21

APU LOAD (AFM)

Maximum Operating Altitude

NG - 41,000 ft

400 - 37,000 ft

22

APU GENERAL

Bleed selection limitations:

Ensure APU BLEED air switch is closed for 1 minute after start and for 1 minute prior to shutdown.

NOTE: (NG) When the APU switch is moved to OFF, this time delay is met automatically.

APU bleed valve may be open during engine start, but avoid engine power above idle.

Except for engine start, the APU bleed valve must be closed when another source is pressurizing the left bleed air duct.

23

FLAPS

Maximum extension altitude?

Maximum flap extension altitude is 20,000 ft. (AFM)

(NG) Holding in icing conditions with flaps extended is prohibited. (AFM)

24

SPEED BRAKES

General Limitations?

Do not deploy speed brakes with flaps extended. (ASA)

Do not deploy speed brakes in flight below 1000 ft AGL.

In flight, do not extend the SPEED BRAKE lever beyond the FLIGHT DETENT. (AFM)

25

LOAD ALLEVIATION SYSTEM (700W/900ER)

Manually overriding the Load Alleviation System is not authorized.

26

FUEL

Minimum fuel temperature?

Minimum fuel temperature -37°C unless actual fuel freeze point is known.

27

FUEL

Fuel tank balance?

Allowable lateral imbalance between main tanks 1 and 2 must be scheduled to be zero. Random fuel imbalance must not exceed 1000 lbs for taxi, takeoff, flight or landing.

Main wing tanks must be scheduled to be full if the center tank contains more than 1000 lbs.

28

CENTER TANK FUEL PUMPS (AFM)

For ground operation, Center Tank FUEL PUMP switches must not be positioned to ON unless?

For ground operation, Center Tank FUEL PUMP switches must not be positioned to ON unless the Center Tank fuel quantity exceeds 1000 lbs, except when defueling or transferring fuel.

29

CENTER TANK FUEL PUMPS (AFM)

Center Tank Fuel Pumps must not be ON unless?

Center Tank Fuel Pumps must not be ON unless personnel are available in the Flight Deck to monitor LOW PRESSURE lights.

30

CENTER TANK FUEL PUMPS (AFM)

Limitations with LOW PRESSURE light illuminated?

(NG) For ground and flight operations, the corresponding center tank fuel pump switch must be positioned OFF when the low pressure light illuminates. If the Center Tank is empty, position both Center Tank FUEL PUMP switches OFF

(400) For ground and flight operations, Center Tank FUEL PUMP switches must be positioned to OFF when both Center Tank fuel pump LOW PRESSURE lights illuminate.
