NOTE: When assured of reaching the landing site selected, and on Final Approach:
1. Airspeed -- ESTABLISH 76 TO 81 KTS
2. Fuel Selctor Valve --OFF
3. Mixture -- IDLE CUT-OFF
4. Magneto/Start Switch -- OFF
5. Flaps -- AS REQUIRED
6. Landing Gear -- DOWN or UP (Depending on Terrain)
7. Battery and Alternator Switches --OFF
NOTE: If possible, choose firm sod or foamed runway. Make a normal approach, using flaps as necessary.
When sure of reaching the selected landing spot:
1. Throttle -- CLOSED
2. Mixture -- IDLE CUT-OFF
3. Battery, Alternator and Magneto/Start Switches --OFF
4. Fuel Selctor Valve --OFF
5. Keep Wings Level During Touchdown
6. Get Clear of Airplane as soon as possible after it stops
1. Throttle -- RETARD TO RED LINE
2. Airspeed -- REDUCE
3. Oil Pressure -- CHECK
NOTE: If loss of oil pressure was the cause of overspeed, the engine will seize after a short period of operation
4. Land -- SELECT NEAREST SUITABLE SITE and follow LANDING EMERGENCIES procedure.
NOTE: An inoperative alternator will place the entire electrical operation of the airplane except engine
ignition on the battery. An alternator failure will be indicated by the illumination of the ALT OUT
warning light, located on the instrument panel below the flight instruments.
The warning light will not illuminate until the alternator output is almost zero. A verification of
alternator malfunction would be a discharge shown on the ammeter.
There is no indication of overvoltage except that the warning light will illuminate as though
the alternator is out.
1. Verify Alternator Out with Ammeter -- AMMETER WILL SHOW DISCHARGE
NOTE: If the ammeter does not show a discharge, a malfunction in the Warning Light System is indicated,
and the Alternator Switch should be left ON.
2. If Ammeter Shows a Discharge:
ALTERNATOR SWITCH -- OFF MOMENTARILY, THEN ON (this resets the overvoltage relay)
If the warning light does not illuminate, continue to use the Alternator.
3. If the Warning Light Illuminates, Alternator Switch -- OFF
4. Nonessential Electricl Equipment -- OFF to conserve battery power
NOTE: If the cabin door is not locked it may unlatch in flight. This may occur during or just after takeoff.
The door will trail open approximately 3 inches but the flight characteristics of the airplane
will not be affected, except the rate of climb will be reduced.
1. Unlatched Door in Flight -- Cabin Door Panel Annuciator will ILLUMINATE
2. Door trail open -- RETURN TO FIELD in a NORMAL MANNER
3. During Landing flare-out -- Have Passenger HOLD DOOR to PREVENT it SWINGING OPEN
4. Once Landed -- Passenger CLOSE DOOR/LATCH LOCKED
5. Pilot Cross-check -- Cabin Door Panel Annuciator OFF

NOTE: Manual extension of the landing gear is facilitated by first reducing speed, then proceed as follows:
1. Landing Gear Motor -- CIRCUIT BREAKER OFF (pull-out, Right Subpanel)
2. Landing Gear Switch Handle -- DOWN Position
3. Handcrank Handle Cover -- REMOVE (at rear of front seats)
4. Gear Handcrank -- ENGAGE and TURN COUNTERCLOCKWISE AS FAR AS POSSIBLE
(approximately 50 turns)
5. If Electrical Sys Operative -- CHECK LANDING GEAR POSITION LIGHTS AND WARNING HORN
(check LANDING GEAR RELAY circuit breaker engaged)
6. Handcrank -- DISENGAGE. (Always keep it stowed when not is use)
CAUTION: The manual gear extension system is designed to lower the landing gear only.
NOTE: DO NOT ATTEMPT TO RETRACT THE GEAR MANUALLY.
Do not operate the Landing Gear electrically with the handcrank engaged as damage to the
mechanism could occur. After emergency landing gear extension, do not move any landing gear
controls or reset any switches or circuit breakers until the airplane is on jacks as failure
may have been in the gear up circuit and gear might retract on the ground.
NOTE: After practice manual extension of the landing gear - gear can only be retracted etectrically, as follows:
1. Handcrank -- CHECK, STOWED
2. Landing Gear Motor Circuit Breaker --IN (right Subpanel)
3. Landing Gear Switch Handle -- UP (gear up red-light)
NOTE: An alternate induction air door, spring-loaded to the closed position, is located downstream from
the induction air filter. If the induction air filter becomes blocked (e.g., ice, etc.), the differential air
pressure normally opens the alternate induction air door to provide induction air from the bottom
of the engine compartment. If the alternate induction air door becomes stuck in the closed position,
it can be opened by pulling and releasing the T-HANDLE located directly below the
Propeller Control Knob. This T-HANDLE is placarded: ALTERNATE AIR PULL AND RELEASE
NOTE: THE EMERGENCY STATIC AIR SOURCE SHOULD BE USED FOR CONDITIONS WHERE THE NORMAL STATIC
SOURCE HAS BEEN OBSTRUCTED.
When the airplane has been exposed to moisture and/or icing conditions especially on the ground,
the possibility of obstructed static ports should be considered. Partial obstruction will result in the
rate of climb indication being sluggish during a climb or descent. Verification of suspected
obstruction is possible by switching to the emergency system and noting a sudden sustained
change in rate of climb. This may be accompanied by abnormal indicated airspeed and altitude
changes beyond normal calibration differences.
NOTE: Whenever any obstruction exists in the Normal Static Air System or the Emergency Static Air System
is desired for use:
1. Pilot's Emergency Static Air Source --Switch to ON EMERGENCY
2. For Airspeed Calibration and Altimeter Correction --REFER to PERFROMANCE Section in POH
NOTE:
The Emergency Static Air Valve - in the NORMAL position when the system is not in use or needed.
WARNING: Spins are prohibited. If a SPIN is entered inadvertently:
Immediately move the Control Column FULL FORWARD and simultaneously
Apply FULL RUDDER OPPOSITE the Direction of the SPIN.
Continue to hold this control position until ROTATION STOPS and then
NEUTRALIZE ALL CONTROLS and execute a Smooth PULLOUT.
AILERONS should be NEUTRAL and THROTTLE in IDLE Position at all times during recovery.
