Fuel system failures are divided into two types consisting of helicopter fuel system failure and engine fuel system failure.

ENGINE

FUEL SYSTEM

FAILURE

The engine high pressure fuel pump is either a dual element type pump or a single element pump. A failure of either element of the dual element pump will not result in an engine failure as either element is capable of supplying engine fuel requirements. A failure of the single element pump will require execution of the Engine Failure procedure.

HELICOPTER

FUEL SYSTEM

FAILURE

Helicopter fuel system failure will be caused by a malfunction of one or both of the fuel boost pumps and will be evident by the illumination of the FUEL PUMP caution light. ,The engine will operate without boost pump pressure under low altitide conditions and one pump will supply sufficient fuel for normal engine operation under all conditions of power and altitude.

POWER CHECK

PROCEDURE

The Power Check Chart will indicate the percent torque that should be available from a minimum Allison Specification Engine. The take-off power limits (5 minutes) of the 250-C 18 engine are: Maximum torque - 100%.

On cold days the torque pressure limit may be reached before the TOT limit is reached. On standard or hot days or at high altitudes, the TOT will be the limiting factor. To perform a power check make sure the anti-ice and generator switches are OFF. Raise collective, increasing to Power Check Chart.
Note

When the chart percent torque reading is exceeded, during the Power Check, it indicates a better than minimum specification engine.

HEIGHT-VELOCITY

DIAGRAM

The Height-Velocity Diagram defines the conditions from which a safe landing can be made on a smooth, level, firm surface following an engine failure. The Height-Velocity Diagram is valid only when the helicopter gross weight does not exceed the limits of the Altitude Versus Gross Weight for Height-Velocity Diagram.

DENSITY

ALTITUDE

A Density Altitude Chart is provided to aid in calculation of performance and limitations. Density altitude is an expression of the density of the air in terms of height above sea level; hence, the less dense the air, the higher the density altitude. For standard conditions of temperature and pressure, density altitude is the same as pressure altitude. As temperature increases above standard for any altitude, the density altitude will also increase to values higher than pressure altitude. The Density Altitude Chart expresses density altitude as a function of pressure altitude and temperature. The Density the relation: Altitude Chart also includes the inverse of the square

The IGE and OGE Hover Ceiling Charts present hover performance (allowable gross weight) for conditions of pressure altitude and OAT. Each chart is divided into two areas. AREA A (white area), as shown on the hover ceiling charts, presents hover performance for which satisfactory stability and control has been demonstrated in relative winds of 17 knots (20 MPH) sideward and rearward at all loading conditions. Note Engine TOT will rise noticeably when hovering downwind. Avoid hovering downwind when operating near TOT limits. AREA B (yellow area), as shown on hover ceiling charts, presents additional hover performance which can be realized in CALM WINDS or winds outside the CRITICAL RELATIVE WIND AZIMUTH AREA. Note Tail rotor control margin and/or control of engine temperature (TOT) may preclude operation in AREA B of the Hover Ceiling Charts when the relative wind is in the Critical Wind Azimuth Area.

Caution should be exercised when operating at low airspeeds above altitudes published in performance charts. Tail rotor effectiveness may be marginal at high power settings under these conditions.

EMPTY

CENTER

OF GRAVITY

The empty weight consists of the basic helicopter with required equipment, optional equipment kits, transmission and gearbox oils, hydraulic fluid, unusable fuel, undrainable engine oil, and fixed ballast. The empty weight center of gravity shall be adjusted within the limits of the Center of Gravity versus Weight Empty Chart in the Maintenance Manual.

GROSS

WEIGHT

CENTER

OF GRAVITY

It shall be the pilots responsibility to ensure that the helicopter is properly loaded so that the entire flight is conducted within the limits of the Center of Gravity Vs. Gross Weight chart in Section I. The gross weight center of gravity may be calculated from the helicopter Actual Weight Record and the Loading Chart in this section or in appropriate Flight Manual Supplements to assure safe loading.

COCKPIT

AND

CABIN

LOADING

A minimum crew weight of 150 pounds in the cockpit is required. Crew and passengers may be loaded in any sequence without exceeding the gross weight center of gravity limits if forward doors are on. If forward doors are removed, CG shall be computed.
The passenger compartment contains 40 cubic feet of space and the cargo loading limit is 75 pounds per square foot, and 86

pounds per square foot when cargo service platform is installed.

FUEL

LOADING

The helicopter center of gravity will move forward as fuel is consumed because the CG of the fuel is slightly aft of aircraft CG. With normal crew and passenger loading, gross weight CG should remain within limits at any fuel quantity, if forward doors are on. If forward doors are removed, CG shall be computed.

BAGGAGE

COMPARTMENT

LOADING

The baggage compartment is accessible from the left side of the helicopter and contains approximately 16 cubic feet of space. The baggage compartment has a load limit of 250 pounds (86 pounds per square foot), which is a structural limitation only, and does not infer that CG will remain within approved limits. When weight is loaded into the baggage compartment, indiscriminate crew, passenger and fuel loading can no longer be assumed, and the pilot must compute gross weight CG to assure loading within approved limits. Loading of the baggage compartment should be from front to rear. The load shall be secured to tiedown fittings if shifting of the load in flight could result in structural damage to the baggage compartment or in gross weight center of gravity limits being exceeded. The CG shall be computed with the load in the most adverse position.

BHT-206A-FM-1 ANTI - ICING FUEL ADDITIVE The fuel to be used when conducting flight operations below 40F (4.4C) must contain an anti-icing additive meeting the specification requirements of PFA-55MB or MIL-I-27686 (NATO S-748). The fuel additive marketed under the trade name PRIST meets this requirement and is manufactured for blending with ASTM types A, A-l, and B. JP-4 and JP-5 procured through military sources normally contains this additive. Helicopters equipped with airframe mounted fuel filter do not require the use of anti - icing additive at any ambient temperature. The minimum concentration of the additive should be at least 0.035 percent by volume. in a loaded fuel tank

The minimum concentration of the additive in the fuel with which the aircraft is to be refueled should be at least 0.06 percent by volume. The maximum concentration is 0.15 percent by volume. of the additive that may be used in fuel

If it is not known whether or not the fuel in the aircraft contains this additive, or if the percent concentration is not known, the fuel must be drained from the helicopter and refueled with fuel containing this additive, or a differential refractometer, Seiscor Model AC - 500, may be used to accurately measure the percent concentration of additive in the fuel. This equipment is available from Seismograph Service Corporation, Tulsa, Oklahoma. Refueling from supply pumps with a flow rate of 25 to 60 GPM must be accomplished by using a PRIST l/2 gallon container, Model PAB - 103, with the PRIST Proportioner, Model PRB - 101, and the instructions furnished with each proportioner. Refueling from supply pumps with a flow rate of 8 to 12 GPM can be accomplished manually by using a PRIST LO - FLO, 6.5 ounce, aerosol can and blending the additive and fuel per the instructions stated on the container. For proper blending, the flow of the additive initial start of the fuel flow. 5-2 Rev. D-37 shall commence with the

INTRODUCTION
The Bell Float Landing Gear Kit No. 206-706-008, consists of two streamlined multi-cell, inflatable floats, float mounting tubes, mount cross tubes, adapters for relocating the navigation lights, attachment fittings and all hardware required to equip the helicopter for water operation. A triangular plate is also included in the kit and mounts on the tail skid. The plate is required for controllability purposes and also partially protects the tail rotor in the event of a tail low landing on the water. Relocation of the navigation lights to the end of the float forward cross tube will permit the helicopter to be operated under day or night VFR flight conditions.

INTRODUCTION
The Bell Cargo Hook Kit No. 206-706-101 consists of two A-frame mountings, a main cross beam and an integral cargo hook, designed to carry loads of 1200 pounds. The cargo is suspended from the aircraft center of gravity and the design is such that oscillatory moments of a free swinging cargo do not impart motion to the airframe. The system contains an electrical and manual emergency release. Provisions for stowing the kit when flight without cargo is anticipated, are provided. OPERATIONS with cargo on the hook SHALL BE CONDUCTED IN ACCORDANCE WITH APPROPRIATE OPERATING RULES. NOTE 1. Two bumper assemblies, 206-070-585-1, must be installed per Bell Service Letter No. 206A-74 when external cargo hook is used with float equipped helicopters. 2. A swivel link is not supplied with the Cargo Hook Kit; however, it is recommended that a link be installed between the suspension cable and the cargo hook.

Section
FLIGHT PLANNING

Instruct ground personnel to discharge helicopter static electricity, before attaching cargo sling, by touching airframe with a ground wire. If a metal sling is used, hook up ring can be struck against cargo hook to discharge static electricity. If contact has been lost after initial grounding, helicopter should be electrically regrounded and, if possible, contact maintained until hook up is complete. Instruct ground personnel to check primary load ring and secondary load ring for condition and proper size (table 2-l). Check for correct rigging.

Use of multiple rings, slings, or shackles on the load beam or the primary load ring or use of an oversize secondary load ring is like using a primary load ring smaller than nominal size. This can cause the load to hang up during release. Failure to comply with these instructions may impair cargo hook ring interface operation, resulting in potential problems. Check that only one primary ring is captured in the load beam and only one secondary ring with correct cross-section dimension is captured in the primary ring. Additional rings, slings, or shackles shall be attached to the secondary load ring. See figure 2-1. 3

Section
FLIGHT PLANNING

Instruct ground personnel to discharge helicopter static electricity, before attaching cargo sling, by touching airframe with a ground wire. If a metal sling is used, hook up ring can be struck against cargo hook to discharge static electricity. If contact has been lost after initial grounding, helicopter should be electrically regrounded and, if possible, contact maintained until hook up is complete. Instruct ground personnel to check primary load ring and secondary load ring for condition and proper size (table 2-l). Check for correct rigging.

Use of multiple rings, slings, or shackles on the load beam or the primary load ring or use of an oversize secondary load ring is like using a primary load ring smaller than nominal size. This can cause the load to hang up during release. Failure to comply with these instructions may impair cargo hook ring interface operation, resulting in potential problems.

Instruct ground personnel to check that only one primary ring is captured in the load beam and only one secondary ring with correct cross-section dimension is captured in the primary ring. Additional rings, slings, or shackles shall be attached to the secondary load ring. See figure 2-l.

Section 3
PERFORMANCE The Snow Winterization Kit causes a decrease in engine inlet pressure (with respect to the standard inlet) which reduces the power available when operating at turbine outlet temperature limits. Thus, whenever the ambient conditions are such that the torque pressure limits cannot be obtained because of turbine outlet temperature limits, the performance obtainable with the Snow Winterization Kit installed is less than that which is obtainable with the standard inlet. A chart for Performance Determination is provided to determine whether or not standard inlet performance is obtainable. This chart is used as Follows: Determine the intersection of the desired pressure altitude and ambient temperature. Using a power condition, point (A), for which the chart curve lies to the right of the altitude/temperature intersection, the performance obtainable is as published for the standard inlet. NOTE The standard inlet performance is as published either in the basic Flight Manual or in the appropriate Supplement (other than this Supplement) for the desired power condition. 4 October 6, 2000

Pressure altitude: 5000 feet. Ambient temperature (OAT): 15C Desired flight condition: Hover IGE Desired power condition: T.O.P. Anti-Ice OFF. Configuration (other than Snow Winterization Kit): Basic. Find the maximum gross weight for the above conditions. From Performance Determination chart, it is noted that the hover ceiling will be 2000 feet less, since the power condition curve is to the left of the altitude/temperature intersection, point (B). Add pressure altitude and loss: 5000 + 2000 = 7000 feet From Basic Flight Manual, find the gross weight for 7000 feet and 15C = 2850 pounds. This is the maximum gross weight at which it is possible to hover for the given conditions. RATE OF CLIMB

8. 9.

EXAMPLE 1. 2.

Find the rate of climb for the above conditions. From the Basic Flight Manual: Rate of Climb at 2600 lbs GW = 1410 ft/min. Rate of Climb at 3000 lbs GW = 930 ft/min. Difference: 400 lbs 480 ft/min. Desired GW Lower GW Difference 2850 lbs 2600 lbs 250 lbs 1410 - 250/400 (480) = 1110 ft/min.

Basic Rate of Climb at 2850 = 3.

Snow Winterization Kit loss = 300 ft/min. Therefore, Snow Winterization Kit rate of climb = 1110 - 300 = 810 ft/min.

introduction

INTRODUCTION
The Water-Alcohol Power Augmentation Kit, No. 206-706-400, when installed and used by the pilot will provide increased hot day performance. The performance increase is obtained by injecting a water-alcohol mixture into the engine inlet to reduce turbine outlet temperature and thereby results in additional power available. The additional power available is limited by the torque red line or the turbine outlet temperature red line, whichever occurs first. The kit consists of a three gallon tank (pressurized by engine bleed air), solenoid valve, tubing, injector nozzles, indicator lights, switches, wiring and all the hardware required to complete the installation.

When performing the following procedural step the green flow light will be ON and a TOT temperature decrease will be noticeable. This will constitute a system functional check. W/A INJECT switch (Collective stick) - ON (green flow light ON), monitor TOT and torque instruments and adjust power as required to maintain engine operation within red line operating limits.

When the W/A LOW LEVEL light illuminates the remaining fluid will provide approximately 20 seconds of water-alcohol injection time. W/A LOW LEVEL light - When light illuminates schedule the use of the remaining fluid and be prepared to reduce power to prevent exceeding the TOT limit.

If engine is being operated at TOT red line, with water injection, and fluid supply becomes depleted (green flow light goes OUT) an over-temperature TOT will occur. Reduce power as necessary to prevent TOT from exceeding 749C. Prior to terminating W/A INJECT W/A injection flow, reduce power and TOT.

HOVER PERFORMANCE WATER -ALCOHOL INJECTION

INCREASE

WITH

Hovering capability of the helicopter is substantially improved, due to the power available increase, both In and Out of Ground Effect, when water - alcohol injection is used. This performance increase is shown on the IGE and OGE Hover Ceiling Increase Chart, that is to be used as follows: EXAMPLE: Determine the gross weight pounds at which the helicopter can hover in ground effect at 6000 feet pressure altitude and an ambient air temperature of 35C. Enter bottom of chart at 35C and proceed vertically to intersection of the in ground effect curve, then move left to the altitude scale and read 2800 feet. (2800 feet is the hovering IGE performance altitude increase when using water - alcohol injection.) Subtract the 2800 foot altitude increase from the existing 6000 feet pressure altitude to obtain an adjusted equivalent operating pressure altitude of 3200 feet. Refer to Basic Flight Manual chart for Hovering IGE, Anti - Ice Off for use as an example. Ceiling, T.O. Power,

Enter altitude scale at the adjusted pressure altitude of 3200 feet and move right to the intersection of the 35C temperature curve, then

NOTE 2510 pounds is the IGE hovering ceiling G.W. for the basic helicopter at 6000 feet and 35C without W/A injection. If a G.W. increase is not required the IGE hovering ceiling will be 8800 feet at 35C when W/A injection is used, i.e. 6000 feet plus 2800 feet equals 8800 feet pressure altitude.

With the particle separator kits, the maximum power available is slightly less than the obtainable with a standard inlet, when operating at TOT limit. The helicopter performance is, therefore, also less with the particle separator kits installed. This power loss is caused by an increased pressure drop in the inlet, and the compressor bleed air used to purge the particle separator. Performance charts with the particle separator installed are provided in this section for the clean, float, high skid and external cargo configurations. With Deflector Baffles installed, reduce resulting Power Check chart torque by 3% to determine minimum torque available at hover.

INTRODUCTION
The Bell Particle Separator Kits, Nos. 206-706-201-19 and 206-706-200-11 protect the engine against the ingestion of sand, dust and other foreign debris, with a minimum power loss. The separator when installed will permit flight operations to be conducted in less than desirable environmental operating conditions. The separator consists of a grouping of tube assemblies arranged in parallel and fixed between two aluminum sheets and is located forward of the . engine air inlet. Each tube assembly consists of a vortex tube, vortex generator and outlet tube. Foreign particles entering each tube assembly are separated by the swirling action of the air passing through the vortex generators. This airflow, called scavenge flow, carries the foreign particles into the scavenge chamber to the ejection boxes to be purged overboard by using engine bleed air and thereby allows only the remaining cleaned air to enter the engine. The kit consists of the particle separator, bleed air tubing and hose, electrical cable and the required hardware to complete the installation.

No change from basic Flight Manual.

With the particle separator kit, the maximum power available is slightly less than that obtainable with a standard inlet, when operating at TOT limit. The helicopter performance is, therefore, also less with the particle separator kit installed. This power loss is caused by an increased pressure drop in the inlet, and the compressor bleed air used to purge the particle separator. Performance charts with the particle separator installed are provided in this section for the clean, float, high skid and external cargo configurations.

FLIGHT MANUAL

Section 2 BHT-206A-FMS-22

FLIGHT PLANNING
Instruct ground personnel to discharge helicopter static electricity, before attaching cargo sling, by touching airframe with a ground wire. If a metal sling is used, hook up ring can be struck against cargo hook to discharge static electricity. If contact has been lost after initial grounding, helicopter should be electrically regrounded and, if possible, contact maintained until hook up is complete. Instruct ground personnel to check primary load ring and secondary load ring for condition and proper size (table 2-l). Check for correct rigging.

Use of multiple rings, slings, or shackles on the load beam or the primary load ring or use of an oversize secondary load ring is like using a primary load ring smaller than nominal size. This can cause the load to hang up during release. Failure to comply with these instructions may impair cargo hook ring interface operation, resulting in potential problems.

Instruct ground personnel to check that only one primary ring is captured in the load beam and only one secondary ring with correct cross-section dimension is captured in the primary ring. Additional rings, slings, or shackles shall be attached to the secondary load ring. See figure 2-l. 3

Section 31
Refer to Snow Particle Separator Engine Air Induction System (BHT-206A-FMS-18) for power assurance data. A chart for Performance Determination is provided to determine whether or not a performance loss occurs. The chart is used as follows: Determine the intersection of the desired pressure altitude and ambient temperature. When power condition curve is to the RIGHT of the altitude/temperature intersection, there is no loss of performance from that shown in Snow Particle Separator Supplement Performance Charts. When power condition curve is to the LEFT of the altitude/temperature intersection, hover ceiling is 1000 feet less and rate of climb is 110 ft/min less than that shown in Snow Particle Separator Supplement Performance Charts. EXAMPLE HOVER PERFORMANCE Find the maximum gross weight for the following conditions: Pressure altitude Ambient temperature (OAT) Desired flight condition Configuration 5000 feet 15C Takeoff power Anti-ice OFF. Snow Particle Separator with Deflector Kit and Standard Skid Gear.

From the Performance Determination Chart it is noted that the power condition curve is to the left of the altitude/temperature intersection, point B, therefore the hovering ceiling is less by 1000 feet. Add pressure altitude and loss: 5000 feet, plus 1000 feet = 6000 feet. From the appropriate lower ceiling in the Snow Particle Separator Supplement find the gross weight for 6000 feet and 15C = 2860 pounds. This is the maximum gross weight at which it is possible to Hover In-Ground Effect with Takeoff Power, Anti-Ice OFF. 4 October 6, 2000
