We would like to integrate all exhisting POH, for all our different Savage models ,with one new page related to the Emergency procedures. If you wish to get a new POH directly from us, that will include this page, just write directly to us specifying your name, serial number and model (email@example.com). The content of this specific page is related to "nose over event" and is anticipated below:
Under heavy braking (mainly with quite forward Cg), or when the landing site is rough (sand , mud , obstacles etc) might happen that the plane goes nose over. If this situation occurs , we strongly suggest to use these simple steps :
· Open the cabin door (or the shooter window if installed) and if this will not be possible (i.e. locked by obstacles or deformed) use the side windows . It is fairly easy to push the side windows out with your feet .
· Support your body with your arm to protect your head and neck , and once ready , release the safety belt harness with the other hand (this procedure can avoid neck/head injury) .
· Once free from the safety belt, exit the plane and keep in the safe distance from it .
· If the situation allows and it is safe , close the fuel valve in the cabin and switch off the avionics and electric system, to prevent any risk of fire, before to look for some help .
