89

EGPWS Alert

Simultaneously:
+ AP - OFF
+ PITCH - PULL UP
+ THRUST LEVERS - TOGA
+ SPEED BRAKES - CHECK RETRACTED
+ BANK - WINGS LEVEL or ADJUST
- Best climb performance is obtained when wings are as level as possible
- For "TERRAIN TERRAIN PULLUP" or "OBSTACLE OBSTACLE PULL UP," a turning maneuver can be initiated if the crew concludes that turning is the safest way of action,

90

Emergency Descent

1. CREW OXY MASKS - USE
2. SIGNS - ON
3. EMER DESCENT - INITIATE
4. THR LEVERS (if A/THR not engaged) - IDLE
5. SPD BRK - FULL

91

Loss of Braking

If No Braking Available:
1. REV - MAX
2. BRAKE PEDALS - RELEASE
- Brake pedals should be released when the A/SKID & NW STRG sw is switched OFF, since the pedal force or displacement produces more braking action in alternate mode than in normal mode.
3. A/SKID & NW STRG - OFF
- Braking system reverts to alternate mode.
4. BRAKE PEDALS - PRESS
- Apply brakes with care, since initial pedal force or displacement produces more braking action in alternate mode than in normal mode.
5. MAX BRK PR - 1,000 PSI
- Monitor brake pressure or BRAKES PRESS indicator. Limit brake pressure to approximately 1,000 PSI and at low ground speed, adjust brake pressure as required.
*If still no Braking:
6. PARKING BRAKE - SHORT SUCCESSIVE APPLICATIONS
- Use short successive parking brake applications to stop the aircraft. Brake onset asymmetry may be felt at each parking brake application. If possible, delay the use of parking brake until low speed, to reduce the risk of tire burst and lateral control difficulties.

92

TCAS RA

1. AP - OFF
2. BOTH FDs - OFF
- Respond promptly and smoothly to an RA by adjusting or maintaining the pitch, as required, to reach the green area and/or avoid the red area of the vertical speed scale.
- Avoid excessive maneuvers while aiming to keep the vertical speed just outside the red area or the VSI, and within the green area. If necessary, use the full speed range between Va max and Vmax.
3. ATC - NOTIFY
*Respect stall, GPWS or windshear warning.

93

Unreliable Speed Indication/ADR Check Procedure (N605NK THRU N647NK)

If the safe conduct of flight is impacted:
1. AP/FD - OFF
2. A/THR - OFF
3. PITCH/THRUST:
- Below THRUST RED ALT - 15/TOGA
- Above THRUST RED ALT and Below FL100 - 10/CLB
- Above THRUST RED ALT and Above FL100 - 5/CLB
4. FLAPS (if CONF 0,1,2,3) - MAINTAIN CURRENT CONF
5. FLAPS (if CONF FULL) - SELECT CONF 3 AND MAINTAIN
6. SPEEDBRAKES - CHECK RETRACTED
7. L/G - UP
*When at or above MSA or circuit altitude, level off for troubleshooting.

94

If the safe conduct of flight is impacted:
1. AP - OFF
2. A/THR - OFF
3. FD - OFF
4. PITCH/THRUST:
- Below THRUST RED ALT - 15/TOGA
- Above THRUST RED ALT and Below FL100 - 10/CLB
- Above THRUST RED ALT and Above FL100 - 5/CLB
5. FLAPS (if CONF 0,1,2,3) - MAINTAIN CURRENT CONF
6. FLAPS (if CONF FULL) - SELECT CONF 3 AND MAINTAIN
7. SPEEDBRAKES - CHECK RETRACTED
8. L/G - UP
