Some Questions Before Buying

Recommended Posts

Hey Brian!  I'm seriously considering purchasing the QOTS II product today but have a few questions first.  I almost always fly my 747 in United Airlines colors.  I also use their procedures, as I have the manual.  I was just wondering if the end user can adjust some of the FO actions?  For example, when United Airlines pressurizes the Hydraulics before start, their procedure, since they have the air-driven demand pump, is to select the NO. 4 to AUX, and the NO. 1 to Auto.  NO. 2 and NO. 3 stay in off until the after start/before taxi flow.  I was just wondering if the user can set this up?  

Technically, at UAL, pressurizing the hydraulics before push is part of the Captain's flow.  So is it possible for a user, to just delete a FO action so that they do not perform it in the first place?  Everything else, seems to be more or less spot on from looking at the manual.

Regards,

Rob

Hi Rob,

We have various config options, but not that one

I can add that to SP1 as a Config Option though.

To confirm: at UAL, only the Captain touches the hydraulics prior to takeoff?

That's correct.  As per the UAL manual, the Captain also sets all the HYD pumps to auto in his/her after-start flow.  I know at UAL, the Captain is the only one who touches the Hydraulic pumps in all stages of flight, including the parking checklist.  Everything else though (at least when looking at SOP2), mimics UAL's procedures really well.  Sure there are a few minor differences, but overall it matches up great.  I think I will go ahead and purchase this now.  Just have to go get a splitter for my headset first. Look forward to SP1.

Best Regards,

Rob

I just added your suggestion to the SP1 to-do list.

New Config option will be: "Only Capt Controls Hydraulics: Yes/ No".
