What is the "BLEED AIR OFF"....can't seem to find that......and... further... down to..BUS TIE OFF WINDSHIELD HEAT OFF or WARM-UP BATTERY TEMPS CHECKED BLEED AIR ON / NORM or MAX ..this one "BLEED AIR ON / NORM or MAX"can't find him either.

Hi Chris,I'm not at home and I'm going on memory here.On the righthand side of the roofpanel, there are some switches for bleed air. The list refer to those flipswitches.The "Quadrant" the switches are in is called "Air Conditioning".(The "third segment" from top - "AC system" - "AC Control" -"Air Cond.")You can do a few tutorial flights. I did, and eventually the various"idiosyncracies" (I'm a bus guy) of the Dash grew on me.
