Should the 'Sterile Cockpit Rule' apply ?
Yea it kind of threw me off guard because it was the first "confrontation" I've had with a captain. April will be year on property so I'm super cautious of everything (not that I won't be super cautious after I get off probation). I asked him he wanted the shutdown check and he just said no it's fine and starts to pack up his stuff. I told him I think we should do it and he just let out a big sigh. I didn't want to push it anymore so I just silently did it myself.
I get this as a captain. "Well at my old shop we didn't do these checks..." cool story, we're doing them.
"This is not Eagle/the Brasilia/UND/Riddle/Western/Northwest/TWA/'muricaWest/whatever."
There was a company update I was reading a few days ago and it mentioned how a crew left the engine running after arriving at the gate. The captain apparently left the aircraft without calling for a shutdown checklist and was able to make his commute a few minutes later.
CASS was run a few minutes later and the captain was able to make his commute.
So much fail.
"Hey what's that noise?"
I just love how the report said "The captain made his commute".
Gotta get priorities straight! Sounds like he's on top of it.
Bet he didn't have to worry about his commute to work for a while.
I mean, flat out saying "we didn't do these checks" is beyond belief. Well it's no wonder you couldn't make it through upgrade training...
Wow... I've said " hey man once we're done bail I'll shut everything down/pass it off to the next crew" before but not once has anyone ever even insinuated that checklists wouldn't be run....
I say that too, but it's implied that they can jet AFTER the shutdown checklist. It's not like the 1L door is opened immediately upon brakes being set.
I was trying to source that, do you remember where it came out?
I think is was one of the weekly blast messages.
introduction of the "d-5/FCR" which no one is participating in? Ha! Wait, are you?
I don't even know which page in the ACARS/FCR to use!
Good. I read that and thought "Ha! I'll file that along side the D-8 PA which, well, is usually right in the middle of pushing back or telling OPS that 'Yes, we're waiting for catering. Want my employee number? GLADLY'"
