Cold weather procedures

Recommended Posts

I understand the de-icing option that the NGX version had will come with the new ground crew thingy, but what about the other cold weather procedures?

 

The NGX version had an option to defer setting take off flap until later in the taxi. This would be done in freezing conditions with ice or slush on the ground, in order to avoid contaminating the flap tracks. In the NGX you would speak 'Leave the Flaps up for taxi'. There was also an option for delaying flap retraction after landing.

 

From reading the online manual, this is not modeled in the 777 version at the moment. Would be nice if it was. It's the same proecdure for the 777 - see Supplementary procedures SP16.

Slated for V1.1.

 

Flap delay after landing is already there.
