FA responding to chime calls during preflight

Recommended Posts

One of the preflight items in the MD80 is to run a PA and emergency lights test. To do this you have to right-click the chime button and select "PA/EMRG LTS TEST" from the option list. The MaddogX's default logic will handle the FA speaking to you to confirm everything's working.

However, the FS2Crew will come over and say "Yes captain, what can I do for you?" sometime afterwards, which is superfluous. Right-clicks should probably not result in FS2Crew FA calls.

Hi Tim,

I'm not sure if there's much we can do about that scenario.  We use the overhead attendant call switch to trigger the FA, and I suppose when you run the PA test the Maddog activates the same button.
