    • NOTE: An avionics fire will be fought by disconnecting enough camlocks on the avionics rack panel to allow access for the fire extinguisher nozzle. Short blasts are advised to preserve extinguishing agent
    • in case of a reflash. Close rack panel and monitor for reflash.

    • NOTE: All communication, both internal and external, and all aircraft system lighting will be lost after

    • Symptom:
    • 1. TOT rises or does not decrease within 10 seconds after the FADEC control switch has been placed in the OFF position.

    CAUTION: If the engine does not stop immediately (solenoid valve failure), the FADEC will shut down the engine 5 to 6 seconds later. Do not move the Emergency Fuel Shutoff Lever to the shutoff position before 10 seconds have elapsed.

    CAUTION: Operation of the crank button with the EFSL pulled will cause severe damage to the engine fuel pump.

    • or
    • Symptoms:
    • 1. Rotor blade damage is known or suspected.
    • AND
    • 2. Secondary indications (such as vibrations) are more than mild, flight characteristics are drastically
    • altered.

    WARNING: The potential loss of the airframe after aircrew egress is not sufficient cause to continue flight.

    NOTE: A reduction in airspeed may reduce vibrations and improve flight characteristics (weather, flight conditions, and distance from landing area permitting).
  9. Nr Indicating System Failure
    • Corrective Action:
    • 1. COMPLETE THE “BIG 4.”
    • 2. MONITOR OTHER NR INDICATOR (IF OPERABLE) OR N2.

    • 4. ABORT MISSION.

    • Symptom:
    • 1. One or both Nr gauges fluctuates abnormally or indicates zero.

    NOTE: The Low Nr audio will still function even when the Nr indicator fails.
  10. Uncommanded Left Yaw (ULY)
    • Corrective Action:
    • 1. IMMEDIATE FULL RIGHT PEDAL, MAXIMUM DEFLECTION.
    • 2. ALTITUDE/OBSTACLES PERMITTING, SMOOTHLY APPLY FORWARD CYCLIC TO INCREASE FORWARD AIRSPEED.

    • 4. NR SWITCH − HI.

    • Symptom:
    • 1. Any uncommanded left yaw not attributable to mechanical failure of the tail rotor drive system.

    CAUTION: Gradual pedal input will not arrest increasing rates of yaw. Recovery will lag pedal input. During flight testing, up to 300 degrees of lag has been experienced between pedal application and yaw stabilization. This should not be mistaken for a loss of thrust situation.

    WARNING: Rapidly lowering the collective can initiate or increase an undesirable descent rate. If a large descent rate develops close to the ground/water, the subsequent large collective increase required to arrest the descent prior to ground/water contact may aggravate or re−initiate ULY.

    • 4. Possible illumination of the GB CHIP warning light (loss of thrust) with a TGB CHIP annunciation on the VEMD CAUTION/FUEL page.
