7.26. Abnormal Take-off

Abnormal Take-off procedures apply when a malfunction occurs during the take-off and initial climb that does not warrant an abort or an emergency drill. It is not possible to specify procedures for the multitude of malfunctions that could possibly occur during take-off. However, the general procedure for an Abnormal Take-off is as follows:

  1. Upon noticing a problem the PNF should briefly state the nature of the abnormality.
  2. The PF should acknowledge with the standard call "Check."
  3. The PNF should carry out any applicable check without further direction, unless it is inappropriate to do so or if the Captain directs otherwise.
  4. On completion of any action stemming from an abnormality, the PNF should state the action taken and that it has been completed.
