Welcome to your KRIS 11

During pre-flight, the PIC is required to inspect the perimeter of the aircraft twice. The first observation is formal pre-flight while the second is to insure all cargo and pod doors are secure; tail-stand is removed and stowed, and all cones, chocks and tie-downs are removed that could obstruct the taxi of the aircraft.
Operational Control of a flight is extended to a pilot by Dispatch, Maintenance, the COO, and/or the Chief Pilot and Assistant Chief Pilot. A pilot who does not call in to Dispatch that they are in position and who conducts their flight anyway is in violation of Operations Specification A-008 and can face disciplinary action.
For a circle-to-land maneuver in IMC and flying a stabilized approach at 120 kias, the minimum landing minima must be reported to be:
On command from ATC, the pilot reduces power to descend from 8000 ft to 5000 ft. Upon reaching 5000 ft, the pilot levels and begins to bring the power up to cruise only to find that the throttle will not advance beyond 50%. The pilot makes a precautionary landing at a nearby airport without further incident. This action requires:
As part of preflight duties, the PIC will review the previous Aircraft Discrepancy Section of the AFL to determine whether any write-ups have been deferred, signed-off, and/or corrected prior to flight.
If an aircraft requires maintenance or servicing while away from the home base, the PIC must:
It is the responsibility of the PIC to check the Minimum Equipment List to determine if an aircraft item does or does not affect the airworthiness of an aircraft before discussing a specific issue with Martinaire Maintenance.
