Newbie (1/14)



  1. Back in the late 90s a Ham Standard rep came down to Hurbie and taught us a class. He said that if you placed the condition lever to feather inflight and the Aux motor didn't work the blade angle MAY get high enough that the prop won't windmill. Of course that is depending on airspeed. My experience on the ground during emergency egress is that the props made it to the cuff which is approximately 45 -50 degrees(I think). Your mileage may vary.
  2. I was on the Design review board for the U model. Rockwell was going to up the hydro pressure to 4000psi which scared the crap out of us. They swore the factory said it would be OK. We finally talked them out of it.

    We picked it up at Duke in 99. Promptly oversped the gear on a three engine go-around. Quite a bit lighter and faster than the gunship. It had its very own sup to the -1. It had the two probe Rosemount pitot system with emergency procedures for it in secIII. I don't remember which 1-1 we used. I also don't remember a Training Use Only memo. The airplane itself was Training Use Only for us, at least until I retired anyway.
  4. Ron, remember 'pshyco' expediter at Hurby in the 80s? He fired a bottle in the hanger with all the handles in, or so the story goes.
  5. The second airplane I flew on that is standing at a gate.
  6. My compressor is down for a couple of days. So its electric for now. Hit me up at work. PS Week days is when I work on it.
  7. You want to help with one?
  8. #1 prop leak #2 oil leak. From the crew, on facebook Flaps must have been where they were before the 2nd engine was shut down otherwise they would'nt move.
  9. Well said, the active duty could take a lesson from them.
  10. Messing with the blade angle is a gamble. If you move it a little too far and the mech. pumps catch some fluid it's going to try to spin up on speed. Another technique is to go to air start for a sec and then right back to feather, I've seen this work but not 100%. Don't know the story on this but they decided to leave it alone and that may have been the best option. Longest flight I know of with a prop rotating backwards is from west of New Orleans to Hurbie. I heard later that the back of the gearbox was pretty toasty.
