AFM Procedure

[G450 AFM §2-04-10]

  1. START MASTER . . . OFF
  2. ELECTRICAL POWER CONTROL Panel . . . SET
  3. If you did a proper preflight — "Five in, five out" — all you need to do here is ensure all the lights are green except the APU light which will be amber, since it is available but not on line.

  4. EMERGENCY POWER . . . ARM
  5. DOORS . . . CLOSED
  6. APU . . . STOP / AS REQUIRED
  7. BLEED AIR Control Panel . . . APU-OFF / ENG-ON
  8. FUEL SYSTEM Panel . . . SET
  9. COWL ANTI-ICE (2) / WING ANTI-ICE (2) . . . AS REQUIRED
  10. If you are in conditions conducive to icing, you will need to select the cowl anti-ice to on. Don't turn on the wing anti-ice if you plan on deice/anti-ice procedures.

  11. ANTI-ICE HTR (4) . . . ON
  12. WINDSHIELD HEAT (2) . . . ON
  13. CABIN PRESSURE AUTO / SEMI . . . AUTO
  14. Flight Controls Synoptic Page . . . SELECT
  15. Ground Spoilers (First Flight of Day) . . . CHECKED
  16. Details on how this test is done and what is actually being accomplished with each step here: G450 Speed Brakes and Spoilers.

  17. Stall Barrier (First Flight of Day)...TEST
  18. Details on how this test is done and what is actually being accomplished with each step here: G450 Stall Warning System.

  19. Flight Controls / Bungee . . . CHECKED
  20. Check flight controls for freedom and correct movement over full range of motion while observing marshaller or FLIGHT CONTROLS synoptic page.

    NOTE: While performing the elevator control checks, pull the yoke aft and then release. The yoke should slowly fall forward until the elevator surface reaches its stop. A failed bungee has shown that when the yoke reaches the forward stop, there is a slight hesitation and the yoke cycles approximately one inch aft then forward. For a normal bungee, there should not be any hesitation or aft movement after the yoke is released. Any windy conditions may invalidate the yoke cycling test.

    NOTE: Do not perform a rapid movement on the aileron surface. This could lead to an inadvertent HOPS activation.

  21. NOSE WHEEL STEERING POWER . . . ON
  22. YAW DAMP . . . ENG
  23. Standby Electrical Power System (HMG) (Prior to extended overwater flight) . . . CHECK
  24. We also check this during the first flight of the month.
