GENERAL INFORMATION AND SCOPE
SCOPE
This checklist contains the operator's and
crewmember's checks to be accomplished during
normal and emergency operations.
GENERAL INFORMATION
This checklist consists of two parts, Part I for the
C-12C and the C-12D model aircraft and Part II for the
C-12T1 and C-12T2 model aircraft. Both Parts I and II
consist of three parts: normal procedures, emergency
procedures, and performance data. Normal procedures
consist of the procedures required for normal flight.
Emergency procedures are subdivided into seven
classifications as follows: engine, propeller, fire, fuel,
electrical, landing and ditching, and flight controls.
Performance data consists of performance checks.
This checklist, printed from CD, must be printed
on 4 1/2" x 8" paper and assembled in a checklist
binder. This manual must be carried with the aircraft at
all times. Users are authorized to remove those parts
that are not applicable to their aircraft model and are not
required to carry them on the aircraft.
NOTE
This checklist does not replace the
amplified version of the procedures in the
operator's manual, TM 1-1510-218-10, but is
a condensed version of each procedure.
NORMAL PROCEDURES PAGES
The normal procedures checklist is a condensed
version of the amplified checklist appearing in the
normal procedures or crew duties portion of the
applicable operator's manual.
i
TM 1-1510-218-CL
EMERGENCY PROCEDURES PAGES
The requirements for this section of the
condensed checklist manual (CL) are identical to those
for the normal procedures, except that the information is
drawn from the amplified checks in the emergency
procedures portion of the operator's manual.
The
emergency requirements are subdivided into the seven
classifications listed in the General Information
paragraph. Immediate actions are underlined and shall
be memorized.
PERFORMANCE PAGES
The contents of the performance checks
procedures of this manual are a detailed version of the
procedure from the Normal Procedures pages
designated by a H. The detailed procedures in the
performance checklist are the same as those annotated
with a H in the amplified normal procedures checklist in
the operator's manual.
The condensed normal
procedures checklist has only the title of the procedure
annotated with a H, which indicates that the detailed
procedure is included in the performance checklist.

OZONE DEPLETING CHEMICAL
INFORMATION
This document has been reviewed for the
presence of Class I ozone depleting chemicals. In the
base document dated 25 April 1985, all references to
Class I ozone depleting chemicals have been removed
from this document by substitution with chemicals that
do not cause atmospheric ozone depletion.

ELECTRIC ELEVATOR TRIM, AUTOPILOT /
FLIGHT DIRECTOR OPERATION C D1
1. Pilot and copilot PITCH TRIM switches – Press
to NOSE UP and NOSE DN positions, singularly
and in pairs. Check that trim wheel moves in
proper direction and operates only when trim
switches are pressed in pairs. Any deviation
requires that electric elevator trim be turned off
and flight conducted using only manual trim.
2. DISC TRIM switch – Press to second detent and
verify that electric trim disconnects and that
ELEC TRIM light extinguishes.
3. Flight Director (FD) and Radio Magnetic Indicator
(RMI) warning flags masked – Check.
NOTE
Since the pressure of airflow that normally
opposes movement of control surfaces is
absent during preflight check, it is possible to
get a hard over control surface deflection if
an autopilot command is allowed to remain
active for any appreciable length of time.
Move turn knob and pitch thumbwheel only
enough to check operation, then return them
to the center position.
4. Select HDG mode – Check.

This fine document...
Was brought to you by me:
Liberated Manuals -- free army and government manuals
Why do I do it? I am tired of sleazy CD-ROM sellers, who take publicly
available information, slap “watermarks” and other junk on it, and sell it.
Those masters of search engine manipulation make sure that their sites that
sell free information, come up first in search engines. They did not create it...
They did not even scan it... Why should they get your money? Why are not
letting you give those free manuals to your friends?
I am setting this document FREE. This document was made by the US
Government and is NOT protected by Copyright. Feel free to share,
republish, sell and so on.
I am not asking you for donations, fees or handouts. If you can, please
provide a link to liberatedmanuals.com, so that free manuals come up first in
search engines:
