New SOP

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

I was wondering what the chances were of adding a different SOP; I know a United Airlines 777 captain and I could potentially reach out to him to get their full SOP. At the moment, all I have is their policy regarding which lights are used when, and it's as follows: 

 

Beacon: ON prior to pushback, OFF after engine shutdown at arrival gate 

 

Taxi Light: ON while moving, OFF while stationary 

 

Cleared to Enter Runway: Runway Turnoff, Wing, Strobe, and Logo Light (if off) ON

 

Cleared for Takeoff: Landing Lights ON

 

Passing 18,000ft on climb: all lights except Position, Beacon and Strobe OFF

 

Passing 18,000ft on descent: all lights ON

 

Clear of runway: Turnoff, Wing, Strobe, and Landing OFF

I pretty sure FS2Crew already follows those light procedures, and there's an option I recall for the lights at 18K.

I was with Commutair which is part of United flying ERJ-145's and that was the same policy we used on lights.The airlines all have different ways, when I was in Dallas last year doing my ATP-CTP training we were on a 737-800 sim and the policy there was different that what United does.

It's close, but FS2Crew does Taxi and Turnoff while taxiing, and doesn't turn on the logo lights for runway entry, and also turns off the turnoff lights as part of the after takeoff flow.

They turn on the logo lights even during the day?
