  1. Bob shared so much knowledge and experience that he is still out there flying in the brains and hearts of the aviators and maintainers he helped learn, fix and fly their Hercs. Be like Bob; what you have been taught, learned and experienced will only last forever if you teach and share your knowledge and experiences with our fellow aviators. Rest easy brother... Godspeed
  2. AD gates but the are rated at 5000 like all the non floor mounted rings.
  3. That is exactly what you are testing but also during test you "simulate" the wheels rotating (lights out) and the system control box should "release the brakes" (lights come on)
  4. Some non operator somewhere calculated the flow rate and figured it was long enough based on the size of the pipes... But FWIW based on the pump rated output and the size of the pipe as well as the distance needed to travel one could (or has) figure out how much time is needed.

    Closed keeps cold air out and prevents cold soaking the oil inside the cooler.
  6. Have your crew try ATL SELECT and then ALT HOLD Two different sources for the ALT function
  7. The valve (closed) call is for the starter control valve not specifically the switch release. "starter" is the call to release the start switch. When the valve closes on engine 3 the APU bleed air will increase which is the trigger for the valve (closed) call. On second third and fourth engine start TIT decrease is the indication used to trigger the valve (closed) call unless APU air is used.
  8. Allows enough fuel to flow through the manifold to remove (push) any air "Priming" means removing the air.
  9. As you rotate the selector you switch the wire contacts so a momentary drop is not a problem because you are not connected to a phase input until you get to the next phase position. You select not only the phase for your freq indicator but also the phase for your load meter.
  10. The wheels will spin after takeoff until they loose rotational energy and stop on their own. There is no "brake" action to stop them.
  11. Nice APN-59 Barrel!! Replacing that freekin thing SUKED!!! Replacing the cannonplug SUKED MORE!!!!
  12. A few questions to narrow the task: What model aircraft? Inop as in: (a) never turns ON stays cold (watch the pressurization system climb/descent gauge) (b) gets HOT then turns off (c) other manifestation?
  13. What ICS system do you have? The following info is for the AIC-14 system... Change the P and CP AMP selected from Norm to Alt 1 or Alt 2 Also inside the ICS and Radio select boxes there is a jumper to "change the function of the box (same box two functions) make sure the jumper it tight (remove clean contacts and reinsert jumper) If there is a problem with the ICS the boxes will change to a sort of "Hot Mic" function connecting the P and CP ICS
  14. From what I remember the difference in location changes the airflow around/through the boundary layer and it is more of a pickup /interpretation difference but if you are so inclined you can go through the performance charts and determine it there is a TAS difference.
