Dead Ship

Recommended Posts

Guest Ian_Riddell

Just noticed that the landing light switches and the four light switches above these in the "dead ship" (PIC Delivery Flight (Canada)) scenario don't move :-oIt seems that a few of the switches on this particular dead ship have been left in "unusual" positions. Just wondering if, on your airline, whether your engineers would leave the following switches in these positions:EEC switches off?C Elec Hydraulic pump switches on?Utility Busses off?YD switches off?Trim Air switch off?Recirc Fans off?Some pilots get a bit "excited" if they find some of their switches in non-standard positons ;-)Cheers.Ian.

Hi Ian,I am sorry, but I am not qualified to answer your question. (I sell Teddy Bears now).Since you are more than willing to answer questions, I just felt bad that YOU had a question and no one has answered it yet. Please continue to be very very curious about how all this stuff works and sharing with us...ThanksBobP :)

"I just felt bad that YOU had a question and no one has answered it yet."No worries, Bob....I wasn't really expecting an answer.... I was just hoping my message would create the impression (in the minds of the PIC team) that the 767 project was incomplete... and that they would immediately resume work on it (VBG).Anyway, thanks for your kind words ;-)Cheers.Ian.

It truly is a pain on the line when the switches are in "non-standard" mode when we take over. When you take over from another crew, you almost always find things the same way, but when the engineers have had it, you can find anything. I have, on occasion, gone through the cockpit setup reading it from the book when an aircraft has just come from the hangar - even though, we do the setup from recall.As for your situation the following would be normal for an aircraft on a transit stop:EEC switches - ONC Elec Hydraulic pump switches - OFF - The only Hydraulic switches left on all the time are the engine driven pumps. The rest are OFF.Utility Busses - ONYD switches - ONTrim Air switch - ONRecirc Fans - ONI did one delivery flight from Boeing years back and the aircraft was perfectly set up - no unusual switch positions.Cheers
