- 1. If the engine should fail while flying PEL, refer to the Engine Failure During Flight checklist, and transition to the Forced Landing procedure.
2. If rate of descent (indicated on the VSI while stabilized at 125 KIAS with gear, flaps, and speed brake retracted and 4 to 6% torque) is greater than 1500 ft/min, increasing torque as necessary (up to 131%) to achieve approximately 1350 to 1500 ft/min rate of descent. If engine power is insufficient to prodcue a rate of descent less thatn 1500 ft/min, set PCL to OFF.
3. Once on profile, if the engine is vibrating excessively, or if indications of failure are imminent, set PCL to OFF.
4. If PEL is being performed with IDLE power, add 500 feet to high, low, and base key altitudes to compensate for drag of unfeathered prop.
5. Engine failure or shutdown will completely disable the bleed air system. Depending on environmental conditions, this may cause significant canopy icing and/or fogging, severly hampering visibility, especially from the rear cockpit.
- 1. Inducing yaw (side slipping) with a known engine/oil malfunction could result in impaired windshield visibility due to oil leakage spraying onto the windshield.
- 1. Turn to nearest suitable field
- 2. Climb or accelerate to intercept ELP
- 3. Gear, flaps, speed brake- Up
