The RVTO requires approximately 100 feet of ground roll and should be made as nearly into the wind as possible.
All jetborne and semi-jetborne takeoffs being with a takeoff procedure and end with an accelerating transition to wingborne flight. The transition point between the takeoff procedure and the accelerating transition procedure begins once the aircraft is off the ground, the wings are level and the vane is centered. At this point, attitude and AOA can be safely increased and the Accelerating Transition can begin.
a. MPCD (Left or Right) Select ENG
b. Accelerate engine from idle to 60%
c. Check acceleration time within limits 35 to 60% in 2.4 – 3.1 seconds.
d. IGV’s 10 to 21o at 60%
a. Place water switch to TO and note RPM rise.
b. Reset RPM to top end of acceleration band.
a. Set nozzles momentarily to STO Stop and check angle
b. Check flaps at approximately 62o
c. Check duct pressure at approximately 45 PSI
d. Place nozzles to 30o.
STO STOP AS RPM PASSES 110%
CHECK TOP END RPM and Water Flow (if armed)
Hold heading and adjust attitude to prevent fore/aft drift.
