I recently got my BARON 58, and I am enjoying every minute I spend flying it! Does anyone know where to get the Normal and Emergency Procedures chapters of the POH for the BARON 58? I have been searching the forums (and the net) for some time now, for sections 3 and 4 of the POH/AFM, but I cant find an electronic version. I noticed they were not included in the aircraft PDF manual, and it would be awesome to have it. Sections 3 and 4 are Emergency and Normal Procedures, respectively. These chapters contain the "Amplified Procedures" sections, which are great. They give you detailed information on how to fly a particular aircraft - this information is gathered during production flight testing, and is not intended to teach you how to fly aircraft, but rather, how to fly the specific make and model. I would really like to have this information, but so far I have only found links to buy a paper copy of the BARON 58 POH.

Here is an example of the Cessna Cutlass 172RG Amplified procedures for Take Off:




It is important to check takeoff power early in the takeoff run. Any sign of rough engine operation or sluggish engine acceleration is good cause for discontinuing the takeoff.

Full power runups over loose gravel are especially harmful to pro peller tips. When takeoffs must be made over a gravel surface, it is very important that the throttle be advanced slowly. This allows the airplane to start rolling before high RPM is developed, and the gravel will be blown back of the propeller rather than pulled into it. When unavoidable small dents appear in the propeller blades they should be corrected immediately as described in Section 8 under Propeller Care.

After full power is applied, adjust the throttle friction lock clockwise to prevent the throttle from creeping from a maximum power position. Similar friction lock adjustment should be made as required in other flight conditions to maintain a fixed throttle setting.


Normal and short field takeoffs are accomplished with wing flaps 0 deg. To clear an obstacle, an obstacle clearance speed of 63 KIAS should be used.

Soft field takeoffs are performed by lifting the airplane off the ground as soon as practical in a slightly tail-low attitude. If no obstacles are ahead, the airplane should be leveled off immediately to accelerate to a safer climb speed.

At takeoff weights of 2550 pounds or less, 100 flaps may be used if desired for minimum ground runs or takeoffs from soft or rough fields.


Takeoffs into strong crosswinds normally are performed with the minimum flap setting necessary for the field length, to minimize the drift angle immediately after takeoff. With the ailerons partially deflected into the wind, the airplane is accelerated to a speed slightly higher than normal, and then pulled off abruptly to prevent possible settling back to the runway while drifting. When clear of the ground, make a coordinated turn into the wind to correct for drift.


Landing gear retraction normally is started after reaching the point over the runway where a wheels-down, forced landing on that runway would become impractical. Since the landing gear swings downward approximately two feet as it starts the retraction cycle, damage can result by retracting it before obtaining at least that much ground clearance.

Before retracting the landing gear, the brakes should be applied momentarily to stop wheel rotation. Centrifugal force caused by the rapidly-spinning wheel expands the diameter of the tire. If there is an accumulation of mud or ice in the wheel wells, the rotating wheel may rub as it is retracted into the wheel well.
