Release brakes whenever the RPM is under control.
When you clicked on the Speed Reference
chart, the bugs on the air speed gauge will have moved
automatically to mark these important speeds:-
VR - 121 kt
V2 - 141 kt
Climb Speed - 160 kt
Flaps up safety - 201 kt
When the speed reaches 121 knots pull back the stick &
On passing V2 (141 kt) select gear
up & increase pitch to around 12 degrees on the
At this configuration, 12 degrees pitch should settle
you nicely onto the climb speed of 160 kt.
Climb steadily keeping at 93% RPM.
As you go past 2000 ft start bringing the
nose down by gently pushing forward on the stick.
We are aiming for 2500ft.
Allow the speed to build, but adjust the RPM to around
90% as the climb rate reduces.
When the speed goes over 190 kt, select flaps up &
gently reduce power as the flaps are raised.
We are aiming for a power setting of around 79% RPM when
the flaps are up. This will give between 200 &
Adjust trim so that no pressure is needed on the stick
to fly level.
Once trimmed in level flight at 2500 ft, between 200 &
210 kt, click the auto pilot toggle switch.
Turn on the auto pilot (AP-1 switch) & Altitude Hold
You would normally have both Yaw dampers switched on as
