Approach briefing

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have a question about doing the approach briefing before the TOD as the manual states. How can I know if I will be using STAR or vectors (ok, I know it, but just because I don't fly online and ignore ATC except for takeoff and landing :) ). Also, how would I know if I'll need anti-ice or if the runway will be wet/dry when I am 150nm away? ATIS won't pick up that far. Looks to me like I'm requested far more informations than I have before the TOD.

 

My problem is what happens for example if I tell my FO that I don't need A-Ice, and then by hearing the ATIS I understand I might? Guess manual switch on would be the solution right?

Hi,

 

A lot of wx info you'd get over ACARS... you wouldn't use ATIS.

 

For Anti-Ice, just look out the window... if you think you'll be flying through cloud with low temps, turn it on.

 

If you brief that A-Ice is not required, you can still ask the FO to turn it on if that situation changes... you do not need to reset the option in the brief.

 

Cheers,

Thank you. Since I don't have any ACARS utility I'll guess I will simulate it by using the map on FSX. :)
