Sop 3 - FO starts APU without ask first

Recommended Posts

Hello!

 

SOP 3: the FO turns on the APU whitout ask me... He does this every time time we reached the item "flight deck Windows e cockpit door" at the "before star checklist to the line", regardless of the APU is running already.

 

Did I miss something?

 

Many thanks!

There's an option to control this on the Approach Briefing page... I recall there are four options you can chose from.

 

Please look  on Page 30 and 31 of the Main Ops manual.

 

Best,

Sorry, but I was talking about the PREFLIGHT PROCEDURES, in "Before Start Checklist to the line".

 

How I said, every time the checklist reachs the item "flight deck windows & cockpit door"  (SOP 3) the FO start the APU whitout ask first. The FO simply says "starting APU".

 

It´s a problem in case the APU is already running (airports whitout GPU).

 

Is it a chance to choices in "Approach briefing" like you said influence the preflight flows?

 

Thanks again!

Look on Page 13 of SOP 3 Tutorial:

 

"The FO will ask you if you want to start the APU (assuming its not running) after the FLIGHT DECK WINDOWS AND DOORS challenge. Speak: ”YES PLEASE” if you want him to turn on the APU."

 

 

Are you sure you don't hear the FO asking this?  The trigger response is for him to start the APU is "Yes Please".

 

Check the green bar to see if 'yes please' is being detected.
