Exploring the world one toilet at a time.
Some pilots deviate from defined procedures, and "likely" create their own... Where is the standardization ? There's a lot more going wrong there than not knowing how to depart a non-towered airport.According to our manuals, no. you de-ice with flaps up and use the 100% HOT.
Or you de-ice with flaps down all the way and use the 76% HOT.
However there are some who de-ice with flaps at t/o setting.
de-ice checklist has nothing about flight-controls check post de-ice.. however if de-icing w/ flaps up, you then jump back to the after-start checklist and will likely do a flight-control check at that point.
I agree with you - recurrent is jammed up with required things they cover, we need the chance to review the important things such as those being discussed here.
