Constant Speed Props and Manifold Pressure

  • First and foremost - always follow your POH
  • Manifold Pressure
  • Sayings / Expressions / Memory aids:
    • Always keep Prop above Throttle (unless POH allows differently)
    • Blue Sky / Black Earth
      • This is to say when you add power, you increase propeller first, throttle next
    • Push Power Away (throttle, prop, mixture) - if knobs are configured this way
    • Pull Power In (mixture, prop, throttle) - if knobs are configured this way
    • Throttle Back, Power Up
      • Reduce the throttle first, Push the Power (Prop) up first
