    Boeing 737 Inspired Checklists/Flows

    EDIT: Stickied? Yes. Official? No.
    Thanks MJuliano
    //End Edits//

    Here's my first pass at making a set of checklists and flows. NOTE: These do not follow the tutorial ad-verbatim but instead is based on my own flows based on my knowledge of flight sims and realistic aircraft flows. For example, I don't safe the pilots seat until I start bringing the MTS online and start requesting departure. This mirrors Boeings flows in that their guidelines state that the seatbelt signs are only required to be on when the engines are operating or the aircraft is moving below 10000ft.

    So here we go, note that this is a FIRST PASS. Expect spelling mistakes and some strange logic. Tell me about both so I can fix them

    Code:
    "//" denotes steps not yet implemented
    "()" are suggested changes or possible variable answers
    "[]" are notes
    "Above Minimums", "Below Maximums", and "Within operation range" denote indicators that must be indicating either 
    
    Orange or green ranges.
    After a CAW check has shown up on a checklist, this document assumes the pilot will to continue to monitor those 
    
    Indicators, and another prompt to check will not show up again as they should be checked constantly

    V0.1.5 spelling and grammar check by bbart23

    v0.1 Initial Release

    Once we get further into development I'll start working through non-normal flows, although I'll probably need atleast a first draft of the Flight Manual to do that as i want to put together a full boeing QRH for this thing at some point.

    Awesome post! It would be really cool to have some checklists just like this to come with the game. Well done, I'll definitely use this!

    Fixes I can come up with so far: (Spelling)

    Correct 'Clearence' to 'Clearance' (Unless that is a localization issue)
    Correct 'Recieved' to 'Received'
    Correct 'Nozzels' to 'Nozzles'
    Correct 'implimented' to 'implemented'
    Correct some grammatical errors with 'and' and 'or'


    Other than that this is fantastic and will probably speed up the creation of a checklist in game. Very good work!


    Corrected version below:

    Code:
    "//" denotes steps not yet implemented
    "()" are suggested changes or possible variable answers
    "[]" are notes
    "Above Minimums", "Below Maximums", and "Within operation range" denote indicators that must be indicating either 
    
    Orange or green ranges.
    After a CAW check has shown up on a checklist, this document assumes the pilot will to continue to monitor those

    Feedback: safing the seat seems to make sure you (the pilot) is held in an appropriate position to respond to sudden movements. It also seals the hatch behind you (note the cockpit appears to be a detachable module).

    It seems you do have it before the decoupling, but it really should be done immediately. I'd consider it up there with removing all the 'remove before flight' tags during a pre-start procedure. Consider it this way: imagine there was a malfunction during LENR initialization - if the hatch wasn't closed you could be subjected to depressurization - even worse if you're not secured in the seat. It would also provide some means to save yourself from a fire - at worst case ejection - decoupling the module for rescue.

    I agree with draeath completely

    I had forgotten that the cockpit could be ejected. I'll take a look at the DCS A10-C checklists for comparison when I get home as it could probably be analogued to the ejection seat. Unfortunately I have 6 more hours of work to do first.

    From what I've seen, arming the ejection systems tend to be one of the later tasks, but that's because the ejection systems are not very useful while on the ground (you'll end up dead if you tried) AFAIK. As well, if the engines catch fire or what not, you can still get away quickly - depressurization and nuclear reactors change this all a bit. I wouldn't stick TOO close to what you see with aircraft, at least in this respect.

    You seems to deploy both radiator before undock : that could be a problem, what if the radiator hit the station? There should at least be a (visual?) check to verify if it's safe to deploy it.

    It should depend on station type. Don't forgot that this checklist should only be used with stations that have docking ports. FireArc can also dock inside stations that have hangars - it has skids that you can deploy and they are animated already too. In this case you can deploy radiators only after you fly off the hangar .
