Reasons for Performing Engine Fire/Emergency Engine Shutdown

Disintegration
Overspeed (uncontrollable)
Vibration (severe)
Seizure
Pylon/Engine fuel leak
Fire
Severe Compressor Stall
Thrust reverser core stuck out

Windshear indications

1) Hesitant or excessive airspeed buildup,
2) Uncommanded airspeed changes of ±10 kts,
3) Sudden headwind/tailwind changes of 15 kts+ (check ref GS),
4) uncommanded FPV change of ±2º or VVI change of 500 fpm,
5) Excessive RA sink rate,
6) Excessive pitch attitudes,
7) Heavy precipitation (Red) on WX Radar

11

Windshear on bottom/center of HUD

bottom=caution-performance increasing
center=warning-decreasing

12

Windshear recovery

• MAX thrust.
• On approach, use TOGA & hand fly.
• Flaps ½.
• Do not follow FD pitch guidance.
• Pitch for +1-2º FPV, which should approximate 400-500 fpm VVI.
• If 400-500 fpm VVI cannot be obtained by 15º pitch (approximates best ½ flaps climb performance), maintain 15º pitch.
• If at 15º pitch & sinking while below 200’ AGL, increase pitch to stick shaker until clear of windshear.
• Raise gear after extended positive climb & ground contact is not a concern, but not lower than 1000’ AGL.
• Raise flaps after exiting windshear & VMFR is attained.

13

When do you depart VFR

Not authorized IFR departure (no instr apch)
cannot depart using IFR method
Operational rqmts dictate
majority of sortie is vfr

14

VFR min climb performance

all engines-obstacle avoidance
OEI-departure and emer return route

15

T/O wx mins

Operational-1000 RVR, rwy must have dual RVR readouts displaying min of 1000 RVR on both, rwy centerline lighting operational, and msn priority dictates. No RVR vis>= 1/2 mile

all others-1600 RVR

16

When is alternate rqd

Departure-ceiling or vis is below landing mins for lowest suitable apch (not including Cat II)

Destination- 2000 ft and 3 SM
all aproaches require radar
NAVAID unmonitored
no WX reporting capability
lowest compatible apch mins >= 1500-3

17

Departure alternate rqmts

w/in 30 min-wx >= published apch min and forecast to remain so until 1 hr after t/o but no lower than 200-1/2 (RVR 1200)

w/in 2 hrs- at least 500-1 above lowest apch mins but not less than 600-2 for precision or 800-2 for non precand forecast to remain so for 1 hr after ETA @ alternate

18

Destination alternate rqmts

worst forecast wx for ETA +1hr to include TEMPO will meet or exceed 1000-2 ft or 500-1 above lowest compatible mins whichever is higher;

19

Disqualifying an alternate

All apchs require radar
unmonitored NAVAID
no wx reporting service
ANA on all apch
any note disqualifying airfield as alternate
GPS is the only NAVAID

20

File two alternates when

forecast vis less than published for available precision apch or forecast ceiling or vis less than published for all other apchs

If no ceiling take HAA/HAT and round up to nearest 100

forecast winds exceed limits corrected for RCR

21

Remote or island destination

May use 2+00 holding fuel in lieu of alternate

winds, corrected for RCR, w/in limits @ ETA +2 hrs

ceiling and vis>= published mins for non precision apch @ ETA +2 hrs

if precision apch available ceiling or vis may be intermittently below non precision mins but not precision mins

22

PAR apch

vis no lower than RVR 2400 or 1/2 mile vis

23

full flight instrumentation

w/out: limited to 300-3/4 (RVR 4000)

CAT I/PAR: FD, HUD or PFD, and NAV display at each station, no shared ADC or IRU

CAT II: FD, HUD or PFD, and NAV display at each station, no "CAT II" warning messages

24

CAT II apch limits

100 ft and RVR 1200 min

max xwind=10 kts (actual) 15 kts (training)

w/in 1/2 dot +/-5 kts @ 100 ft

below 300 ft "No CAT II" message=go around

25

IFR departure methods

Diverse departure
ODP (VCOA or RTRL)
SID
ATC departure instructions
Non-standard t/o min-@ or above published ceiling by end of runway then 200'/NM
MAJCOM certified procedure

26

NVG takeoff/landing

Qualified=600-2 (waiver to 300-1)
Unqualified=1500-3
xwind limit-Rwy width 90-120=15, >120=20 (waiver to 30)
