Emergency operating procedures of the U.S. Navy T2V-1 SeaStar. The plane in flight. Simulation of ejection procedure. Pilot in the cockpit. He places his feet in the stirrups, sits erect in the seat with head braced against head rest. He pulls the emergency bail out cord, disconnects oxygen hose at the mask connection, and pulls down face curtain handle firing the canopy and ejecting the seat. He pulls the auxiliary canopy jettison handle and turns on the canopy open switch. In case this procedure fails, the pilot demonstrates a back up including adjustment of canopy interlock release handle, pulling of the face curtain to eject the seat through the canopy. Air start: The pilot moves the throttle to off position, lowers the plane to maximum altitude for an aircraft and assumes a glide. He drains the tail pipe of residual fuel and places the plane in a shallow dive. He adjusts the battery generator switch and holds position. Landing: A stylized illustration of the landing pattern depicts adjustment of glide path and approach. The plane approaches the runway, maintains speed, decreases altitude, retracts landing gear and flaps, and touches down.
