PREFLIGHT INSPECTION
This preflight inspection is to be used with the Turbocommander 690B
models.
An essential part of the preparations made before any flight is the preflight
inspection. During this inspection, verify the aircraft's physical readiness. A
thorough preflight before the first flight of the day is critical to determine
airworthiness and provide for the highest degree of safety.
No detail should be overlooked during the first preflight of the day. Abnormal
conditions (e.g., low tire pressure) must be corrected prior to flight. Even
minor discrepancies should be rectified prior to flight to ensure safety.
The preflight inspection begins inside the aircraft where the initial cockpit
setup and essential functions are verified. The actual exterior inspection
follows; it begins at the cabin door, proceeds clockwise around the aircraft,
and ends at the left wing root.
Lastly, the pilot returns to the interior of the aircraft to check the passenger
compartment and cockpit for flight readiness.

CHECKLIST USAGE
Tasks are executed in one of two ways:
as a sequence that uses the layout of the cockpit controls and indicators as cues
(i.e., flow pattern).
as a sequence of tasks organized by event rather than panel location (e.g., After
Takeoff, Gear RETRACT, Flaps - UP).
The placing of items in a flow pattern or series provides organization and serves as
a memory aid.
A challenge-response review of the checklist follows execution of the tasks; the
pilot monitoring (PM) calls the item, and the appropriate pilot responds by verifying
its condition (e.g., Engine Anti-Ice [challenge] ON [response]).
Two elements are inherent in the execution of normal procedures:
use of either the cockpit layout or event cues to prompt the correct switch and/or
control positions.
use of normal checklists as done lists.

amps during the starting cycle. Observe APU ammeter during start.

CAUTION: Do not use an APU which produces in excess of 1000 amps during initial start
sequence.
Current greater than 1000 amps may produce arcing which can progress to damaged or stuck
starter-generator brushes.

CAUTION: If the NTS is unsatisfactory, correct the fault before flight.
NOTE: The rotary switch must be depressed before it can be rotated to GND-START RUN
position. This position engages the starter. Ignition operation can be monitored by illumination of the
ignition annunciator light on the engine control panel.
If engine light off has not occurred by approximately 15 percent RPM, place the ignition
override/motor switch to IGN OVRD. Return the switch to NORM at 50 percent. If light off is not
indicated by a rise in ITT within approximately 10 seconds after ignition override is selected, abort
the start by placing the engine control switch to ENG OFF and returning the ignition override; motor
switch to NORM.
CAUTION: Limit starter duty cycle to three 60-sec. periods of operation, separated by a fiveminute off period. Cycle may be repeated after starter has cooled for 30 minutes.
CAUTION: As soon as the 1 engine control switch is placed in the GND START RUN position
and the propeller starts turning, the pilots hand should move to the condition lever for that engine.
The condition lever should be guarded for the remainder of the start. If RPM stops increasing prior
to 40 percent or if ITT is approaching 1149C (start limit) and rising rapidly, immediately place
condition lever to ENGINE STOP AND EMERGENCY FEATHER, then place engine control switch
to ENG OFF. Exceeding 1149C may damage engine.

To assure availability of emergency oxygen, the system may be used for

The altitude adjusting valve must remain at 22,500 ft. minimum regulated setting.
CAUTION: In flight do not reduce engine RPM below 96%.
WARNING: If the oxygen system is depleted to 1000 PSI, an immediate emergency descent to
below 13,000 feet must be accomplished in the event of loss of cabin pressurization.
NOTE: If flight in severe turbulence is encountered or cannot be avoided, the following procedure
is recommended:
Avoid control action which could give rapid changes in attitude, altitude or airspeed; whenever
possible, achieve steady flight conditions prior to entry into turbulence. Flaps should be fully
retracted and autopilot disengaged.
Slow to VA speed, keep pilot control movements to a minimum and fly a straight course through
the turbulence, as far as practicable concentrating on attitude and disregarding altitude
CAUTION: In flight do not reduce engine RPM below 96%.
WARNING: If the oxygen system is depleted to 1000 PSI, an immediate emergency descent to

Allow a minimum of 10 minutes cool-down before installing inlet dust covers.
NOTE: Turning engine control switch OFF before turning generator switch OFF will unnecessarily
break and make generator line and field relay contacts, thereby reducing contact service life.
CAUTION: Placing the engine control switch to the ENG OFF position following manual shutdown
(condition lever to FEATHER position), will result in a fuel accumulation in the plenum and may
result in smoke and a loud popping sound. It is recommended that the engine control switch not be
placed in the ENG OFF position until engine cools well below 300C to prevent combustion.
NOTE: Engine RPM should increase approximately 5% with placement of the engine control
switch to the ENG OFF position, and then decrease when the manifold fuel is depleted.
NOTE: If power lever is not placed in reverse the propeller will feather.
NOTE: The battery switch must be OFF, or the cabin door switch must be placed in the UNLOCK
position before the cabin door can be opened. The door annunciator will illuminate if the battery is
ON and entry door is not secure or the door lock switch is in the UNLOCK position.
WARNING: Do not open the cabin door until the left propeller stops rotating.
CAUTION: If engine is to be restarted within 10 to 45 minutes after shutdown, observe engine
compressor and slowly move propeller until compressor rotates one half revolution. Propeller tip will
move approximately six (6) inches. This should be done approximately ten (10) minutes prior to
restart.
