Q400 Mermory Items/Procedures Flashcards (for Captains)
Takeoff Abort
(Captain)
Simultaneously:
  • Call "Abort, my airplane" and assume control of aircraft.
  • POWER Levers - FLIGHT IDLE then DISC.  (Reverse thrust may be used commensurate with directional control.)
  • Brakes - Apply maximum wheel brakes.
Maintain directional control with the rudder and nosewheel steering.

Stop aircraft (clear of runway if practical) and evaluate problem.

Direct First Officer to request emergency equipment, if required.

If passengers/crew are in immediate danger, call for
"Emergency Evacuation Checklist"
or
If engine failure, fire, or damage is indicated, call for
"Engine Shutdown on Ground Checklist"
or
Otherwise, call for
"Takeoff Abort Checklist"
Engine Failure/Fire During Takeoff
(PF)
If engine fails after V1, accelerate to VR and rotate to Flight Director command bars (10° if FD not available).
When positive rate is seen or heard, call "Gear Up"
Climb at V2
CAUTION:
Do not use IAS or VS modes in climb to AH.
At acceleration height, level off and accelerate.
Do not climb or descend.
At V2 (normal or ice (solid bug)) + 10, call "Flaps Up".
Continue acceleration to VSE
Initiate and maintain climb at VSE.
Call "Engine Failure (Fire) Checklist".
Engine Start Abort
___ Condition Lever FUEL OFF
Start SELECT Switch
CENTER
Call for Engine Start Abort Checklist
Roll Control Jam
Autopilot DISENGAGE


If control still jammed:
ROLL DISC handle Pull & Turn 90°


Call for Roll Control Jam Checklist
Elevator Control Jam
Autopilot DISENGAGE
Retain flap setting & approximate airspeed at time of jam.


If control still jammed:
Both pilots attempt to control by force against jam.


If unable to overcome jam:
Control Column Force Relax
PITCH Disconnect handle Pull & turn 90°


Call for Elevator Control Jam Checklist
O2 Mask Donning Procedure

"Smoke - Don Mask" or
"Oxygen - Don Mask"
as appropriate
Headset
Remove
Oxygen Mask Don


If smoke is present:
Regulator (if required) EMERGENCY
  • Pressurizes mask to prevent smoke from entering mask.
Communications Establish
Headset ON
HOT Mic OFF
  • Utilize interphone switch for crew communications
MASK/MIC switch MASK


Windshear/GPWS Recovery - Takeoff Procedures
(PF)
Fly Normal Takeoff Profile at Solid Bug or 15° Pitch.

If Windshear is Encountered or GPWS Escape is Required:
Do not change gear or flap configuration until stabilized climb is established.  NTOP power and 10° pitch generally provide sufficient performance to establish climb.

If aircraft is descending, or GPWS warning continues:
  • Adjust pitch to maintain V2
DO NOT SLOW TO STICK SHAKER!

If Stick Shaker Occurs or Airspeed Tape Turns Red:
Immediately reduce pitch attitude to silence shaker and achieve an airspeed above the low speed cue.  When able, adjust pitch to teturn airspeed to V2.

If below 500′ AGL & Necessary to Avoid Ground Contact:
Call "Max Power" and advance power past detent to full travel.

When climb is established & clear of obstacles, reduce pitch to 10° & power back to detent.

If Ground Contact is Imminent:
Increase pitch to trade airspeed for altitude to arrest descent.  When able, adjust pitch to return airspeed to V2.

After Stabilized Climb is Established:
When positive rate is seen or heard:
Call "Gear Up".

Climb at G/A pitch (10°) for normal two-engine climb.
Above Acceleration Height* and clear of obstacles:

  • Accelerate to Solid bug, then
  • Call "Flaps up, climb power, After Takeoff Checklist".
Accelerate to & climb at normal profile.

*Acceleration Height on a missed approach is 1,000′ AFE unless otherwise specified by a special procedure.
Windshear/GPWS Recovery -
Missed Approach Procedures
(PF)
Call "Missed Approach" and press G/A button on POWER Lever.
Rotate to Flight Director G/A command bar (10° if Flight Director not available.)

After initiating rotation:
Call "Set power" and advance POWER Levers to detent.

If Windshear is encountered or GPWS escape is required:
  • Do not change gear or flap configuration until stabilized climb is established.
  • NTOP power & 10° pitch generally provide sufficient performance to establish climb.
If aircraft is descending or GPWS warning continue, increase pitch to maintain:
  • Open Bug if Wings are clean (REF SPEED switch is OFF).
  • Solid Bug if wings are contaminated (REF SPEED switch is INCR).
DO NOT SLOW TO STICK SHAKER!

If stick shaker occurs or airspeed tape turns red:
Immediately reduce pitch attitude to silence shaker and achieve a safe airspeed.

(Low Speed Cue + 10 kts minimum)

When able, adjust pitch to return to target airspeed.

If below 500′ AGL & necessary to avoid ground contact:
Call "Max power" & advance power past detent to full travel.

When climb is established & clear of obstacles, reduce pitch to 10° and power back to detent.

If ground contact is imminent:
Increase pitch to trade airspeed for altitude to just above stick shaker to arrest descent.

When able, adjust pitch to return to target bug speed.

After stabilized climb is established:
When pitch is 10°:
Call "Flaps one notch up."

When positive rate is seen or heard:
Call "Gear up."

Climb at G/A pitch (10°) for normal two-engine climb.

Above Acceleration Height & clear of obstacles:
  • Accelerate to climb Bug Speed + 10, then
  • Call "Flaps up, climb power, After Takeoff Checklist".
Accelerate to & climb at normal climb profile.
Stall Warning Recovery
At first indication of stall, call "Stall Warning" & press the G/A button on the POWER Lever.

Immediately & simultaneously:
  • Increase Airspeed:
- Pitch: Reduce pitch (altitude permitting)
DO NOT INCREASE PITCH!
- Power: Call, "Set power" and advance the POWER Levers to the detent
  • Bank: Roll wings level
  • Rudder: Maintain coordinated flight

  • Do not change gear or flap configuration.
  • If Stick Pusher activates, allow pusher to move control column forward until stall is broken & pusher releases.
Increase airspeed to Low Speed Cue + 10 kts minimum.

When safe airspeed margin established:
Maintain Cue + 10 kts minimum airspeed margin & smoothly raise pitch to level flight.
AVOID SECONDARY STALL!

NOTE:
As airspeed increases, significantly forward pressure on the control column may be required.  Trim as needed.

Use of HGS
  • For stall recovery - Reduce pitch until Acceleration Caret & "Park Bench" both rise above the Flight Path Indicator.
  • When stall is broken & safe airspeed margin established - Raise Flight Path Indicator to level flight smoothly, maintaining Acceleration Caret & "Park Bench" above the Flight Path Indicator.
After stall recovery:
If landing gear is down or if terrain is a factor:
  • Continue to rotate to G/A pitch (10°),
  • Call "Missed approach", and accomplished missed approach.
Otherwise, reestablish appropriate flight regime & configuration.
Takeoff Abort Required
  • Takeoff Warning Horn
  • Failure of A/F ARM message to illuminate of ED
  • Engine Fire or Failure
  • MASTER WARNING
  • Takeoff torque not obtained on either engine
  • Exceeding engine limitations
  • Windshear encounter
  • HGS failure, "TO WARN", or loss of HGS symbology during takeoff below 500 RVR when runway centerline is not in sight.
Engine Start Abort Required
  • Engine ITT approaches or exceeds 920°C,
  • NH is not in the green arc within 70 seconds of selecting Condition Lever to START & FEATHER, or
  • Engine Oil Pressure fails to reach 44 psi by start SELECT  reset.
