Question about gate arrival with APU

Recommended Posts

I have APU set in the CFG and the FO starts the APU after landing.  At gate arrival once the brakes are on the the FO advised "Ready for Shutdown", I then turn off the engines.  My question is this:  Will the aircraft power automatically switch over to APU or do I need to click the bus switches on the overhead to move the power over.  If so, when do you actually do this...before engines shut down or after ?

 

 

Second question:  There is an instruction in the manual to release parking brakes after chocks are in.  how do you know, the ground crew is not advising that chocks are in ?

 

 

thanks,

Hi Mark,

 

The FO will put the APU on the busses during his pre-shutdown flow when you set the Parking brake:

After the FO's flow is completed (it only takes a few seconds), you should cut the engines.

 

You can assume the chocks are in.

 

The ground crew could give you a visual signal with his hands, or contact you via the interphone.

 

I think in the NGX the ground crew does actually contact you via the interphone...
