1. What type of power plant does the aircraft
have? How much horsepower? How much oil-minimum, maximum? What kind of oil this engine uses?
systems: how much fuel do the tanks hold?
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?
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? ________________________________________________________________________
1. Describe the procedures for the following
failure on takeoff sufficient runway available.
Engine failure on the takeoff insufficient runway available.
Engine failure en route.
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?
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?
