7.8. Turbine Multi Engine Failure/Fire - During Take-Off, After V1

[Depending on the characteristics of your Aeroplane, it may be appropriate to combine the procedures and drills/checks for After Take-off and In Flight into one check. The following is for a fictitious Aeroplane. You will have to develop procedures for your Aeroplane in accordance with the AFM .]

The following is the procedure, and expanded drill and check, to be carried out in the event of an Engine Failure/Fire - During Take-off, After V1. This procedure applies for a failure or fire during take-off from immediately after V1, until autofeather has been selected OFF as part of the After Take-off or Downwind checks. Note the following:

  1. The autofeather and power uptrim are assumed to operate correctly except where indicated.
  2. No actions are required if automatic systems operate correctly.
  3. No action except raising the landing gear is carried out below 400 ft. above the DER (or safe altitude - whichever is higher) if: the autofeather and power uptrim function correctly; or for a fire with the burning engine producing sufficient power.
Pilot Procedure
* Control Directional Control & Min V2
Maintain directional control and rotate the Aeroplane at a rate of about 2o per second until the pitch attitude approximately matches the Flight Director command cue. Achieve a speed of V2 until flap retraction. Attempt to achieve the optimum attitude which is the slip/skid ball ½ ball width away from the live engine and 5o of bank into the live engine. If the control inputs are optimum the Flight Director will command the correct bank. If Aeroplane is controllable make no call.
* Gear UP
At the "Positive Rate" , confirm a climb on the VSI and visually (if possible). If climbing:
Failure of the autofeather may require the pilot to perform the ENGINE FAILURE/FIRE Drill prior to 400 ft or safe altitude, and before Flap retraction. If no autofeather and affected engine is not producing sufficient power, complete the Engine Failure or Fire Drill as follows:
  • - For an engine failure, initiate "Engine Failure Drill # 1 (or # 2) Engine."
  • - For an engine fire, initiate "Engine Fire Drill # 1 (or # 2) Engine."

If no initiation of drill is made, or if the affected engine is producing sufficient power call for the drill after the flaps have been retracted.

* Flaps UP (At Safe Alt - Min 400 ft)
Climb at a speed of V2. At a safe altitude that is at least 400 ft. above the departure runway, accelerate to Vfri then:
  • - "Flaps Up"
* Engine Failure/Fire Drill - Affected Engine
Accelerate to Vclimb and initiate the drill as follows:
  • - For an engine failure, "Engine Failure Drill # 1 (or # 2) Engine."
  • - For an engine fire, "Engine Fire Drill # 1 (or # 2) Engine."
Confirm that the hand is on the power lever for the correct engine.
  • - If correct "FLIGHT IDLE."
- Confirm that the hand is on the condition lever for the correct engine.
  • - If correct "FUEL OFF."
Continue to climb at Vclimb
Confirm that the hand is on the correct engine T-handle.
  • - If correct "Pull."
- Acknowledge the Engine Fire Drill :
  • - If the Fire Warning persists, Pilot initiate next action.
Continue to climb at Vclimb and monitor the situation
When the Pilot confirms "Gear Up, Flaps Up", if Maximum Take-off Power is no longer required or if the maximum time limit is expended:
  • - "Set Max Continuous Power"
  • - If it is desired to leave the bleed air off, add the direction "Bleed Off."
Climb to at least 1000 ft. above the aerodrome elevation.
  • - "Carry out Engine Failure/Fire Check # 1 (or # 2) Engine."
At a convenient point:
  • - Complete the "After Take-off Check", or the "Downwind Check" if applicable.
