SOP 3: strangely FO doesn't set flaps 15/gear down

Recommended Posts

Hi Bryan, I am back with the 737 after 3 weeks out and suddenly I experience a strange problem with SOP 3: during approach all ok until flaps 10, but when I call for either flaps 15, gear down (or together) or landing checklist to flaps, the FO does nothing, although everything is correctly captured in the green speech bar. I tried several times. If instead I call for flaps 25, 30 or 40, he sets them correctly. What did I forget in these 3 weeks?

Thank you.

Hi James,

 

Odd that it would happen out of the blue.

 

Does the mode say "Landing" on the FS2Crew Main Panel?

 

"Gear Down, Flaps 15, landing checklist to flaps".

 

Spoken as a single phrase.

 

Cheers,

Thanks Bryan, speaking "Gear Down, Flaps 15, landing checklist to flaps" as a single phrase works. I remember that it could be said separately (indeed, the tutorial doesn't state that it must be a single phrase), but maybe I was wrong.

Ops, sorry Bryan, I was looking at an 'old' tutorial, the current one correctly states: "SPEAK 'GEAR DOWN FLAPS 15 LANDING CHECKLIST TO FLAPS'".
