  1. EXCEEDING OPERATIONAL LIMITS
    • Any time an operational limit is exceeded, an appropriate entry shall be made on DA Form 2408-13-1. Entry shall state what limit or limits were exceeded, range, time beyond limits, and any additional data that would aid maintenance personnel in the maintenance action that may
    • be required. The helicopter shall not be flown until corrective action is taken.
  2. MINIMUM CREW REQUIREMENTS
    The minimum crew required to fly the helicopter is two pilots. Additional crewmembers, as required, will be added at the discretion of the commander, in accordance with pertinent Department of the Army regulations.
  3. ROTOR LIMITATIONS
    It is not abnormal to observe a % RPM 1 and 2 speed during autorotational descent when the engines are fully decoupled from the main rotor. A speed increase of one engine from 100% reference to 103% maximum can be expected. During power recovery, it is normal for the engine operating above 100% RPM to lead the other engine. Refer to Figure 5-1 for limitations.
  4. Rotor Start and Stop Limits
    Maximum wind velocity for rotor start or stop is 45 knots from any direction.
  5. Rotor Speed Limitations
    • Power off (autorotation) rotor speeds up to 120% RPM R are authorized for
    • use by maintenance test flight pilots during autorotational
    • RPM checks.
  6. MAIN TRANSMISSION MODULE
    LIMITATIONS
    a. Oil pressure should remain steady during steady state forward flight or in level hover. Momentary fluctuations in oil pressure may occur during transient maneuvers (i.e. hovering in gusty wind conditions), or when flying with pitch attitudes above +6°. These types of oil pressure fluctuations are acceptable, even when oil pressure drops into the yellow range (below 30 psi). Oil pressure should remain steady and should be in the 45 to 55 psi range for the UH-60A/EH-60A, and 45 to 60 psi range for the UH- 60L, to ensure that when fluctuations occur, they remain in the acceptable range as defined above. If oil pressure is not steady during steady state forward flight or in a level hover, or if oil pressure is steady but under 45 psi, make an entry on DA Form 2408-13-1. Sudden pressure drop (more than 10 psi) without fluctuation requires an entry on DA Form 2408-13-1.

    b. A demand for maximum power from engines with different engine torque factors (ETF) will cause a torque split when the low ETF engine reaches TGT limiting. This torque split is normal. Under these circumstances, the high power engine may exceed the dual engine limit. (Example: #1 TRQ = 96% at TGT limiting, #2 TRQ is allowed to go up to 104%. Total helicopter torque = (96%+104%)/2 = 100%.

    c. With transmission oil temperature operation in the precautionary range, an entry should be made on DA Form 2408-13-1 except when hovering in adverse conditions described in Chapter 8 Desert and Hot Weather Operations

  22. Engine Power Limitations

    701C 701D/CC
    a. The limitations which are presented in Figure 5-2, present absolute limitations regardless of atmospheric conditions. For variations in power available with temperature and pressure altitude, refer to TORQUE AVAILABLE charts in Chapter 7A.

    b. Helicopters prior to S/N 91-26354 that are not equipped with improved main rotor flight controls are further restricted above 80 KIAS to dual-engine continuous torque limits as indicated by a placard (Figure 5-3) on the instrument panel.
  23. Engine % RPM Limitations
    Transient % RPM 1 or 2 operation in yellow range (101% to 105%) is not recommended as good operating practice. However, no damage to either engine or drive train is incurred by operation within this range. Momentary transients above 107% RPM 1 or 2 are authorized for use by maintenance test pilots during autorotational rpm checks
  24. Engine Starter Limits
    a. The pneumatic starter is capable of making the number of consecutive start cycles listed below, when exposed to the environmental conditions specified, with an interval of at least 60 seconds between the completion of one cycle and the beginning of the next cycle. A starting cycle is the interval from start initiation and acceleration of the compressor, from zero rpm, to starter dropout. The 60- second delay between start attempts applies when the first attempt is aborted for any reason, and it applies regardless of the duration of the first attempt. If motoring is required for an emergency, the 60-second delay does not apply.

    b. At ambient temperatures of 15°C (59°F) and below, two consecutive start cycles may be made, followed by a 3-minute rest period, followed by two additional consecutive start cycles. A 30-minute rest period is then required before any additional starts.

    c. At ambient temperatures above 15° up to 52°C (59° up to 126°F), two consecutive start cycles may be made. A 30-minute rest period is then required before any additional start cycles.
  25. PNEUMATIC SOURCE INLET LIMITS
    The minimum ground-air source (pneumatic) required to start the helicopter engines is 40 psig and 30 ppm at 149°C (300°F). The maximum ground-air source to be applied to the helicopter is 50 psig at 249°C (480°F), measured at the external air connector on the fuselage.
  26. ENGINE START LIMITS
    • CAUTION
    • Engine start attempts at or above a pressure altitude of 701C 701D/CC 18,000 feet or 700 20,000 feet could result in a Hot Start.

    Crossbleed starts shall not be attempted unless the #1 ENG ANTI-ICE ON or #2 ENG ANTI-ICE ON advisory does not appear, and operating engine must be at 90% Ng SPEED or above and rotor speed at 100% RPM R. When attempting single-engine starts at pressure altitudes above 14,000 feet, press the start switch with the ENG POWER CONT lever OFF, until the maximum motoring speed (about 24%) is reached, before going to IDLE. Engine starts using APU source may be attempted when within the range of FAT and pressure altitude of Figure 5-4.
  27. ENGINE OVERSPEED CHECK LIMITATIONS
    Engine overspeed check in flight is prohibited. Engine overspeed checks, on the ground, are authorized by designated maintenance personnel only.
  28. FUEL LIMITATIONS
    a. Fuel boost pumps shall be off except as required by emergency procedures and the following limitations: Boost pumps shall be on when operating with JP-4 or equivalent (as specified in Operator’s Manual) at 5000 feet pressure altitude and above; when operating in crossfeed with JP-4 at any altitude; during external ERFS transfer operations (ERFS utilizing engine bleed air only) regardless of fuel type.

    • CAUTION
    • Due to fuel volatility, when converting from JP-4 to JP-5/JP-8, three helicopter refueling operations must be completed before performing operations with fuel
    • boost pumps off.

    b. When a helicopter operating with JP-4 is restarted within 2 hours of engine shutdown and the air temperature is above 21°C (70°F), a minimum of 2 minutes of dual engine ground operation at 100% RPM R is required prior to takeoff to purge possible hot fuel from engine nacelle area

    Manual Operation of the Stabilator. Manual operation of the stabilator in flight is prohibited except as required by formal training and maintenance test flight requirements or as alternate stabilator control in case the AUTO mode malfunctions.

    Downwind Hovering. Prolonged rearward flight and downwind hovering are to be avoided to prevent accumulation of exhaust fumes in the helicopter and heat damage to windows on open cargo doors.
  44. BLADE STALL:

    * CAUSES

    * INDICATIONS

    * RECOVERY
    • NOTE
    • Maneuvers entered from a low power setting may result in transient droop of 5% RPM R or greater.

    b. The blade stall chart (Figure 5-8), while not a helicopter limitation, provides the level flight angle of bank at which blade stall will begin to occur as a function of airspeed, gross weight, pressure altitude, and temperature. When operating near blade stall, any increase in airspeed, load factor (bank angle), turbulence, or abrupt control inputs will increase the severity of the stall. Fully developed stall will be accompanied by heavy four-per-rev vibration, increasing torque, and loss of altitude. Recovery is always accomplished by reducing the severity of the maneuver, that is by reducing collective, reducing airspeed, and/or reducing the angle of bank. Maneuvering flight which results in severe blade stall and significant increase in 4-per-rev vibration is prohibited.
  45. MANEUVERING LIMITATIONS:

    * HIGH SPEED YAW

    * SLING LOADS

    * RESCUE HOIST LOADS

    * BANK ANGLE LIMITATIONS
    • High-Speed Yaw Maneuver Limitation.

    Limitations for Maneuvering With Sling Loads. Maneuvering limitations with a sling load (Figure 5-9) is limited to a maximum of 30° angle of bank in forward flight. Side flight is limited by bank angle and is decreased as airspeed increases. Rearward flight with sling load is limited to 35 knots.

    Limitations for Maneuvering With Rescue Hoist Loads. Maneuvering limitations with a rescue hoist load (Figure 5-9) is limited to maximum of 30° angle of bank in forward flight. Side flight is limited by bank angle and is decreased as airspeed is increased. Rearward flight with hoist load is limited to 35 knots. Rate of descent is limited to 1,000 feet-per-minute.

    Bank Angle Limitation. Bank angles shall be limited to 30° when a PRI SERVO PRESS caution appears.
  46. SLING AND RESCUE HOIST LOAD MANUEVERING LIMITS
    • Limitations for Maneuvering With Sling
    • Loads. Maneuvering limitations with a sling load (Figure 5-9) is limited to a maximum of 30° angle of bank in forward flight. Side flight is limited by bank angle and is decreased as airspeed increases. Rearward flight with sling load is limited to 35 knots.

    Limitations for Maneuvering With Rescue Hoist Loads. Maneuvering limitations with a rescue hoist load (Figure 5-9) is limited to maximum of 30° angle of bank in forward flight. Side flight is limited by bank angle and is decreased as airspeed is increased. Rearward flight with hoist load is limited to 35 knots. Rate of descent is limited to 1,000 feet-per-minute.

    • When performing slope landings with External Extended Range Fuel System Tanks, ensure tank to ground clearance.

    a. 15° nose-up, right wheel up or left wheel upslope. The slope limitations shall be further reduced by 2° for every 5 knots of wind.

    c. The main gearbox may be operated up to 30 minutes at a time with pressure fluctuations when the helicopter is known to be at a nose-up attitude (i.e., slope landings or hover with extreme aft CG).

    d. When attempting a nose upslope landing at gross weights in excess of 16,000 pounds with skis installed, the parking brake may not hold the helicopter in position. The pilot should be prepared to use the toe brakes.

    e. Slope landings with skis installed are limited to 10° nose-up and right wheel or left wheel upslope. The slope limitation shall be further reduced by 2° for every 5 knots of wind above 12 knots.

    (2) Light: LWC 0.25 to 0.5 g/m3


    (3) Moderate: LWC 0.5 to 1.0 g/m3


    (4) Heavy: LWC greater than 1.0 g/m3
  52. FLIGHT IN ICING CONDITIONS

    PART 2- RESTRICTIONS
    b. Helicopters with the following equipment installed, operational, and turned on are permitted to fly into trace or light icing conditions. Flight into light icing is not recommended without the blade deice kit. Flight into moderate icing shall comply with paragraph 5.28 c.

    (1) Windshield Anti-ice.

    (2) Pitot Heat.

    (3) Engine Anti-ice.

    d. Helicopters equipped with blade erosion kit are prohibited from flight into icing conditions.
  53. ENGINE AND ENGINE INLET ANTI-ICE
    LIMITATIONS
    At engine power levels of 10% TRQ per engine and below, full anti-ice capability cannot be provided, due to engine bleed limitations. Avoid operation under conditions of extreme low power requirements such as high rate of descent (1900 fpm or greater), or ground operation below 100% RPM R, during icing conditions. The cabin heating system should be turned off before initiating a high rate of descent.
  54. BACKUP HYDRAULIC PUMP HOT WEATHER LIMITATIONS
    During prolonged ground operation of the backup pump using MIL-H-83282 or MIL-H-5606 with the rotor system static, the backup pump is limited to the following temperature/time/cooldown limits because of hydraulic fluid overheating.


    FAT °C (°F)

    • Operating Time
    • (Minutes)

    • Cooldown Time
    • (Pump Off)
    • (Minutes)


    • -54° - 32°
    • (-65° - 90°) Unlimited - -


    • 33° - 38°
    • (91° - 100°) 24 72


    • 39° - 52°
    • (102° - 126°) 16 48
  55. APU OPERATING LIMITATIONS
    To prevent APU overheating, APU operation at ambient temperature of 43°C (109°F) and above with engine and rotor operating is limited to 30 minutes. With engine and rotor not operating, the APU may be operated continuously up to an ambient temperature of 51°C (124°F)
  56. WINDSHIELD ANTI-ICE LIMITATIONS
    Windshield anti-ice check shall not be done when FAT is over 27°C (80°F).
  57. TURBULENCE AND THUNDERSTORM
    OPERATION
    a. Intentional flight into severe turbulence is prohibited.

    b. Intentional flight into thunderstorms is prohibited.

    • c. Intentional flight into turbulence with a sling load attached and an inoperative collective pitch control friction
    • is prohibited.
  58. AIR WARRIOR
    When flying missions in chemically contaminated environments, overwater flight, and/or extreme cold, the following applies:

    a. If performing an overwater mission with the Air Warrior Overwater Gear Carrier, remove the seat back cushion to allow space for the raft. The pan cushion must remain in the seat. Failure to remove the seat back cushion may result in aft cyclic restriction.

    b. When performing a mission in chemical-biological protective gear (Mission Oriented Protective Posture (MOPP) IV), the chemical protective mask reduces the field of regard to the user. This impacts the user’s ability to properly identify controls and switches by sight and reduces the ability to detect ground motion cues. Users should conduct ground familiarity drills (blind switch/ control identification) and crew coordination exercises before flight. The user must strictly adhere to proper crew coordination procedures during switch identification. Prior to flight, the user should be proficient in the chemical protective mask while wearing combat gear. The pilot not on the flight controls must assist the pilot flying in identifying the visual cues required to properly control and clear the helicopter.

    c. While wearing the chemical protective mask, the mask hose should be secured to the vest to eliminate potential snagging of the flight controls without restricting head movement and without crimping the hose.
