Mixture

Recommended Posts

Following the announced checklists the mixture is still set to 'lean for taxi' whaen taking off, this may have something to do with my having problems rotating at the suggested speed and climbing at a reasonable rate (I have auto-mixture disabled in settings). Could you arrange a call to set mixture to rich for take-off checklist?

Setting the mixture to full rich wouldn't typically be a call, but more of a flow item (not verbalized).Besides, there are instances when you would not want to use full rich during takeoff (high elev airport on a hot day).Cheers,Bryan

Thanks for the reply, the last command you receive regarding the mixture prior to take-off is to set it to "lean for Taxi" so if you forget to check it and set it appropriately then you're in trouble. Would it be possible to include an advisory comment at the pre-take-off stage to "set mixture as appropriate"?
