e. Crossfeed valve-CLOSED then AUTO.
f. Closing the crossfeed valve resets the system.
g. Repeat test (Steps b-d) for the right boost pump.
h. Verify the crossfeed valve is in AUTO.
P checks left and right generator load. If above .5, reduce electrical load (turn off heater or air
conditioner if not required), or increase N1. Match both condition levers at the same N1 setting if a
position above LOW IDLE is required (refer to NATOPS, Figure 4-2, Part 1, page 4-5).
"OFF" or "STANDBY" (CP)
CP selects OFF or STBY as directed. Place in standby only if convective activity is forecast or the
system needs to be tested (for practice, or on the first leg of a cross country).
P directs CP to "Hold the checklist." Select UHF channel 1 and copy ATIS. Select channel 2 and
put clearance on request. I required select channel 3 and request taxi.
After departing the line and when clear of other aircraft, brief the CP. Note proper turn needle and
ball deflection. Ensure P and CP RMI/HSI are properly tracking and aligned. CP verifies
corresponding indications on CP's RMI/HSI.
A typical brief would be: "Check left needle, right ball, mark heading 360."

necessary to bring the aircraft to a complete stop. Have the CP take the controls momentarily for a
Direct the CP to "Continue the checklist" (and taxi to the run-up area if desired).
10. TURN INDICATORS/COMPASSES
"CHECKED" (P, CP)
Only one direction for turn needle and ball checks is required. Continue to mark the heading during
the single turn.
"CHECKED" (P, CP)
CP reports "After Start Checklist complete."
ENGINE RUN-UP CHECKLIST
The engine run-up checks operation of essential systems, which cannot be checked prior to start or at
P ensures brake handle pulled out fully and brakes pumped firm. P will keep both feet on the brakes
for the entire Run-up Checklist. CP will immediately depress the brakes if any movement is noted.
Brief the CP.
A typical brief would be: "Monitor the aircraft for movement during the run-up."
P ensures both power levers are at IDLE and condition levers are at LOW IDLE.
NOTE: Whenever moving the condition levers to LOW IDLE, pinch the levers together and then move the levers
very slowly. If a LOW IDLE stop is weak, or a lever is moved rapidly, flameout may result. Should flameout
occur, DO NOT move the condition lever back to LOW IDLE; bring it fully into FUEL CUTOFF. After notifying
Ground, the engine may be restarted using the appropriate checklist.
