UH-60 Check In

Wed Apr 19, 2006 6:54 pm

looking for ex or current UH-60 Crew Chiefs. I spose pilots check in too.
remembering a dark cold day in 1987 sitting under the APU while running full blast, pilots in Cockpit freezing butt off but im toasty warm. running from one coast to the other along the DMZ in Korea landing at a korean bsae and omg they got hot peppers that blow my mind. and the last word droop stops in.

When ground running we make these calls:

For TR: Paddles full and free (when pilot is doing preflight op checks, and after APU start)
Eng Start: APU Clear, One Clear, Two Clear
Eng Shutdown: Good dump on One, Good dump on two
MR: Clear Left, Clear Right
Droops: call at half out, all out (usually when hitting ground idle on the pcl's)

But I dont work on UH60's, I work on S-70-A9's  Wink

And I have assumed you know all these calls already!!
