Is it essential that the integrated WXR add-on initialises with the switch in TEST? It always defaults to this position on loading the 777. Any way this can be changed as I find this unrealistic and annoying to have to switch to a normal mode each time.Kevin

The WX Radar must be test prior to each flight, and also after each flight on the taxi in, so it is realistic.Cheers

Of course it's realistic to test it, but in a cold and dark cockpit the switch would not be left in TEST surely? Realise there isn't an OFF position, but it seems odd that TEST would be equivalent to that. It's usually a spring loaded momentary position, but I'm not familiar with the real 777 flightdeck.Kevin

You can save that switch in any position you feel happy with.

The real airplane is rarely started from a cold and dark situation anyways. There is normally always a power source hooked up to the aircraft(such as a GPU or other ground power).But the WXR radar is never left in the test position. When the pilots recieve the aircraft, the wxr radar switch next to the transponder is on, but the wxr radar itself is actually off. The radar doesnt turn on until the WXR button is pressed on EFIS. The pilots do run the radar test in their preflight however.
