2. Fuel systems: how much fuel do the tanks hold?

                                   

 

      Is the engine carbureted or fuel injected?

 

     Fuel Pumps: How many and what drives them? __________________________________________________________________

 

     What is the fuel consumption at Cruise and take off power?

 

 

      What is the endurance at cruise? __________________________________________________________________

 

3. Propeller: Is it fixed pitch or constant speed? If it is constant speed, what power and propeller settings do you use for take off, climb, (at 65%) cruise and descent?

 

 

 

 

 

4. Electrical system: What voltage battery does the airplane have and what size alternator? What is the total voltage on the electrical system? What equipment is affected by an alternator failure?

 

 

 

 

 

5. Landing gear system: What allows the gear to retract? What allows the gear to extand for your airplane?

 

 

 

 

6. Emergency landing gear system: How do you use the emergency landing gear system? ________________________________________________________________________

 

 

EMERGENCIES

 

1. Describe the procedures for the following emergencies:

            A. Engine failure on takeoff sufficient runway available.

            __________________________________________________________________

 

 

 

 

            B. Engine failure on the takeoff insufficient runway available.

            _________________________________________________________________

 

 

 

 

            C. Engine failure en route.

            __________________________________________________________________

 

 

 

 

            D. Engine and electrical fires.

            __________________________________________________________________

 

 

 

 

 

WEIGHTS AND BALANCES:

 

 

Aircraft has maximum fuel; pilot weighs 180 lbs., and passenger 220 lbs. Rear seat passengers weigh 190 lbs. each. Is the aircraft within limits?

 

 

 

 

 

Aircraft Performance:

 

 

Runway length available: 2500 ft. Wind: Calm. Temperature: 90 degrees. Barometric Pressure: 28.92 In Hg. Field elevation 1,500 Ft. The aircraft is loaded at maximum takeoff weight. Can the aircraft takeoff and land over a 50 Ft. obstacle under these conditions? If not, what is the required runway length?
