Just hoping some people could help me out with info on the following items
Looking through the QRH on the Engine Failure shutdown checklist “Do an engine shutdown only when flight conditions allow”. What sort of situation would this be referring to? In my mind what I would think is the Low oil pressure situation and you need to do a shutdown to prevent any further damage being done, should you still wait 3 mins for cooling prior to shutting it down? Or would be more related to phase of flight i.e. in a climb so wait till you level off?
On the engine Fuel leak checklist its says “a diversion may be necessary”. For the airline pilots out there, at that stage of the checklist/that moment in time would you do anything like start heading towards a diversion right then, speak to ATC and/or slow down stop climbing?. I am just thinking of the scenario where I would slow down/level off and begin to head towards a diversion and then after completing the checklist we have not in fact not got any issue but I have then compromised my flight route/burned too much fuel to make my intended and original destination.
In the case of shutting down an engine, what is the best way to put this across on a PA to the pax, just call it a technical issue etc?
