757 cold and dark state

Recommended Posts

Hi, I feel there is a problem with the cold and dark state of the flight deck. There are far too many switches turned off. For instance you would never leave the eng hydraulic pumps switched off, it's bad practice (The pump offload solenoids are powered to off, so they should be left on to avoid burning out solenoids) they would only ever be turned off to check their functionality on a ground test, or to offload the pump if there was a malfunction in flight.The same applies to recirc fans (one fan is required for equipment cooling). Switches like this are left on incase someone puts power on without noticing they are incorrect. Trim air, all generator switches, utility bus etc would all be left on when the aircraft is shut down at the end of the day. Many others left in auto. This is how any pilot would want to find the aircraft, even in a cold and dark state. Can these settings be edited? Regards Keith
