FLIGHT CHECKS (CONT)
Do not exceed 100% torque.
d. If 100% torque is not achieved, do
(1) Increase collective pitch while
maintaining approximately 60%
torque on non-test engine until
100% torque is observed on the
(2) Maintain a constant pressure
altitude by adjusting forward
airspeed as necessary.
e. Wait 30 seconds and record
airspeed (KIAS), NG (%), TGT (C),
torque (%), OAT (C), and pressure
f. PWR lever, non-test engine FLY.
g. If required, repeat steps a. thru f.
for the other engine.
h. To establish the engine torque
factor (ETF) and aircraft torque
factor (ATF), refer to TM
