Exract: TC 1-211 AIRCREW TRAINING MANUAL UTILITY HELICOPTER, UH-1H/V SERIES TASK 1024 PERFORM BEFORE STARTING ENGINE THROUGH BEFORE LEAVING HELICOPTER CHECKS CONDITIONS: In a UH-1 helicopter or UH-1FS and given the appropriate aircraft operator’s manual/checklist (CL). STANDARDS: Appropriate common standards plus these additions/modifications. 1. Perform procedures and checks using the appropriate aircraft operator’s manual/CL. 2. Enter appropriate information on DA Form 2408-12, DA Form 2408-13, DA Form 2408-13-1 and the health indicator test (HIT) log. DESCRIPTION: 1. Crew actions. a. Each crewmember will complete the required checks pertaining to his assigned crew duties per the appropriate aircraft operator’s manual/CL. b. The pilot not on the controls (P) will read the checklist. c. All crewmembers will clear the area around the aircraft before engine start. d. The nonrated crewmembers (NCMs) will perform duties as required by their duty position and as directed by the pilot in command (PC). e. Enter appropriate information on DA Form 2408-12, DA Form 2408-13, DA Form 240813-1, and the HIT log. f. Secure the aircraft after completion of the flight. 2. Procedures. a. Perform the BEFORE STARTING ENGINES through BEFORE LEAVING HELICOPTER checks per the appropriate aircraft operator’s manual/CL. The call and response method will be used. The crewmember reading the checklist will read the complete checklist item. The crewmember performing the check will answer with the appropriate response. From starting engine through engine shutdown, the P will perform both the call and response while the P* is monitoring the flight controls. Responses that don't clearly communicate action or information should not be used. For example, when responding to the call, "Systems – Check" replying with: "Check" doesn't clearly indicate that the systems are within the normal operating range. The response, "All in the normal operating range" communicates information that is more accurate. During engine start, the NCM will be outside of the aircraft, in sight of the pilot, to perform fireguard duties. The NCM will ensure that the aircraft is clear and ready for the engine start. Before leaving the helicopter, the crew will moor the aircraft and install required protective covers and security devices. b. Perform the HIT check and when complete, record data on the HIT log. After flight enter all information required on the appropriate DA Forms. Note: During single pilot operations, commanders will ensure crewmembers are briefed on responsibilities to safely complete starting engine thru engine shutdown checks. NIGHT OR NIGHT VISION GOGGLE CONSIDERATIONS: Before starting the engine, ensure that internal and external lights are operational and set. Internal lighting levels must be high enough to easily see the instruments and avoid exceeding operating limitations. SNOW/SAND/DUST CONSIDERATIONS: Ensure all rotating components and inlets/exhausts are clear of ice and/or snow prior to starting engine. TRAINING AND EVALUATION REQUIREMENTS: 1. Training may be conducted in the aircraft or the simulator. 2. Evaluation will be conducted in the aircraft. REFERENCES: Appropriate common references plus the following: DA Pamphlet 738-751
