5T uses an SOP based on Westjets rather unique SOP. Outside of those two airlines most others are using Boeing based SOP and don’t use to the line anywhere and have memory items instead of QRC’s.FICU wrote: ↑Wed Mar 27, 2019 9:41 amThe Captain calls for the Before start checklist "to the line" after the flows are complete. In our checklist(B737-200 ad 300) we have an item on the checklist for first flight of the day... "Stab trim cutout switches" ... "Normal".ant_321 wrote: ↑Wed Mar 27, 2019 9:34 amI’ve never heard of a “before start checklist to the line”. With the Boeing SOP’s the switch position is checked in the captains pre flight flow but not backed up with any checklists.FICU wrote: ↑Tue Mar 26, 2019 3:48 pm
The stab trim cutout switches are checked for position in the first flight, "before start checklist to the line" by every crew, before every first flight of the day every time. They aren't some obscure switches never dealt with unless it's called for in a QRC or NNC. The Captain touches the switches before every first flight of the day.
Like previously mentioned it’s part of the captains Preflight flow and not on any checklist if you’re using Boeing’s SOP like most airlines.
