Hi,
What is the basic procedure for the loss of an engine in the ATR-72-600 in the second segment of a climb?
In the event of a sudden and complete the loss of an engine in ATR-72-600 in the second climb segment, will there be a physical sensation of the engine failure or will the yaw damper system completely dampen out the adverse yaw?
Do pilots of these aircraft use the old "dead foot" as part of the process of identifying the dead engine?
Thx!
Ken

Hi Kenkaras,
the standard ATR procedure at take-off is to set Yaw Damper "ON" following the gear up.
If you had time to set it up before a flame-out, the YD will counteract the Yaw effect and trim at the full scale; you will sense almost nothing.
In the case you have a flameout without Yaw Damper On, two solutions:
  - You are controlling the symmetry with the rudder, the force is too high and will not allow you to set the YD. In this case, trim manually as on the 500 to cancel the effort and set YD ON.
  - You don't make any correction: setting YD ON will counteract the effect and trim automatically.

In any case, you will have to set YD ON because it is not activated automatically after take-off
No good pilots, only old pilots
