Arming doors for departure

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

So i have been flying around the virtual world with this wonderfull plane!

 

But one thing has come to mind.

 

I land the plane, park her at the gate and then open some doors for disembarking of pax and cargo.

When the plane is turnaround manually the doors when closed for departure do not automatically go to arm. (it being a sim makes that its not an issue).

 

This means that I have to open all doors manually and close them before they can be armed.

 

Why not make a seperate button on the CDU (doors page) to arm all the doors at once?

 

Any thoughts?

That would be nice, just like in the md11, arm all and disarm all, and make it so they arm/disarm in a random sequence, if it's not too much trouble

My understanding is that if they're closed, they're armed.

I tried this once. i didn't get a cabin ready message then, because 1 door was not armed

 

On your EICAS is there a doors auto or doors manual line?

Nope they are still marked as manual on the door synoptic page but they do arm themselves if you use the ground ops thing.
