Re: Dash 8 300 : fuel flow, performance, POH

Found a picture in a -100 where we were burning 680/side at 11,000 ft in cruise. Up that 100 or so for a -300. 87.8% torque which would have been 96 in a -300 at that temp/altitude.

Hard for me to imagine a -200 that far out of CG to where it wouldn’t rotate. I’d be interested to see if something was off with the spring tabs.

I’m not going to say it’s not possible, but I bet there’s more to the story.

The engines I've flown have a max ITT before introducing fuel. I think on the AE3007 it was 200. If you're starting engines with temp above that you motor the engine until the temp is below 200 before introducing fuel. Oil temps are not a problem. Brake temps between short turns are a bigger issue.

I don't know about the 737, but on other engines you'll generally get a hot start if you introduce fuel too early. I think on the early turbojets I flew we needed 15% (maybe 20) before we could introduce fuel or open the condition lever.
