Estimate of current fuel as a percentage of full.

Engine start attempted with fuel selector wrongly set

Reminder to select BOTH tanks.

Engine start attempted and throttle not correctly set

Advice that throttle should be open 1/2" when starting.

Engine start attempted and parking brake not set

Warning that parking brake must be set when starting the engine.

Engine start attempted with fuel not set

Reminder to set fuel to BOTH.

Engine start attempted and mixture control not set

Advice that mixture control must be at full rich before starting.

Engine start attempted with master battery switch off

Advice that the master battery switch must be on when starting the engine.

Shortly after moving in taxi mode

Advice on which instruments and systems should be checked during taxiing.

Engine start with propeller control in incorrect position

Reminder to set propeller control to maximum before starting engine.

In takeoff mode with autopilot on

Reminder to turn off autopilot.

In takeoff mode with incorrect flaps

Advice that you can have between 0 and 20 degrees flaps.

In takeoff mode with fuel boost pump on

Reminder to turn boost pump off for take-off.

In takeoff mode with more than 20 degrees of flaps

Warning that you have too much flaps set and that you should use no more than 20 degrees.

Shortly after beginning takeoff

Advice to move throttle smoothly up to full.

Shortly after beginning takeoff

Advice that the nose wheel can be lifted at 50 KIAS.

Shortly after takeoff

Reminder that this aircraft's 'vX' (Best Angle of Climb Speed) is 54 KIAS at sea level. Use this speed to clear runway obstacles or to lift off from a soft field quickly.

Shortly after takeoff

Reminder that this aircraft's 'vY' (Best Rate of Climb Speed) is 78 KIAS at sea level. Use this speed to climb after takeoff in normal operations.

Shortly after takeoff

Advice that in "cruise climb" in this aircraft you should normally use 85 - 95 KIAS. 23 inches MP, 2400 RPM, cowl flaps open.

Shortly after takeoff

Advice that if you encounter heavy turbulence you need to be at or below manoeuvring speed ('vA') and to remember that this will decrease as you burn fuel.

Shortly after takeoff

Advice to use right rudder to correct for any unwanted yawing to the left caused by P factor and torque.

Shortly after takeoff

Advice to get take-off flaps retracted.

Entering cruise mode

Advice on correct engine settings. Cruise at 15 to 23 inches MP, 2100 to 2400 RPM, cowl flaps closed.




Descent and Landing

Descending and below maximum flap speed while landing

Advice that once below 140 KIAS the pilot may start to lower flaps.

Descending and decelerating to maximum flap speed while landing

Advice that once below 140 KIAS the pilot may start to lower flaps.

Descent to landing and propeller control not set

Advice that propeller control must be full forward for descent to landing.

Descent to landing and mixture control not set

Advice that mixture control must be at full rich for descent to landing.

Descending and decelerating to 95 KIAS while landing

Advice that once below 95 KIAS the pilot may start to lower 20 degrees of flaps.

Descending and decelerating to 95 KIAS while landing

Advice that once below 95 KIAS the pilot may start to lower full flaps.

Descending shortly before landing

Reminder to turn off autopilot.

Descent to around 600 feet AGL while landing

Advice to use pitch to control airspeed and power to control rate of descent during approach and landing.

Descent to around 500 feet AGL while landing

Advice that you want to land with landings flaps (full flaps) at 65 knots IAS.

Descent to around 400 feet AGL while landing

Reminder to flare at about 10 to 15 feet above the runway and to lift the nose to land on your main
gear first, lower the nose wheel gently and use minimum braking required.

Descent to around 300 feet AGL while landing

Reminder that at about 10 to 15 feet above the runway you should reduce power to idle and flare.




General Warnings and Advice

Fuel boost pump on shortly after starting

Reminder to turn boost pump off.

Loss of engine while airborne

Advice that the best glide speed in this aircraft is 80 KIAS.

Engine fire started

Warning that the engine is on fire.

Shortly after engine has started

Reminder to check the oil pressure.

Speed approaching vNO

Reminder that you need smooth air to fly into the yellow arc on your ASI, above 143 KIAS which is 'vNO' (Maximum Structural Cruising Speed) for this aircraft.

Speed approaching vNE

Warning that you are close to exceeding 181 KIAS which is 'vNE' (Never Exceed Speed) for this aircraft.

Decreasing speed approaching vSO

Warning that stall speed with full flaps is 50 KIAS which is 'vSO' (Stalling Speed in Landing Configuration) for this aircraft.

Decreasing speed approaching vS

Warning that stall speed with flaps up is 56 KIAS which is 'vS' (Stalling Speed with Flaps Up) for this aircraft.

Left or right fuel level is low

Warning that one or both fuel tanks are getting low and you may wish to consider your refuelling options.

Flaps down and flying too fast for any flaps

Advice that once below 140 KIAS the pilot may use flaps.

Engine running and alternator off

Reminder to turn alternator on.

Engine running and avionics master switch off

Reminder to turn avionics master switch on.

Master battery switched on

Estimate of current fuel as a percentage of full.

Master battery on and fuel level getting low

Estimate of current fuel as a percentage of full as fuel falls below 50%, 25%, 10%, 5% and 3%.

Pitot heat off and not taxiing and OAT below 4 degrees C

Reminder to use pitot heat when OAT (outside air temperature) is below 4 degrees C.

Pitot heat on and taxiing or OAT not below 4 degrees C

Reminder to turn off pitot heat when taxiing or when OAT (outside air temperature) is at or above 4 degrees C.

Fuel selector wrongly set with engine off on ground

Reminder to select fuel on left or right to prevent crossfeeding unless starting when you need on BOTH.

Retracting flaps

Advice on when flaps are to be retracted.

Engine fire started

Warning to cutoff fuel.
