P and CP set CDI as appropriate. Normally set 130º if outbound for central/south
Seagull, 100º for north Seagull; runway heading if entering the touch & go pattern; the
outbound radial to intercept or the final approach course for the approach in use (RI).

"OPEN" or "CLOSED" (CP)
P directs CP to select desired position.
Brief the CP in accordance with Appendix A, as appropriate. At a minimum, brief the CP on the
takeoff, instrument departure procedures, and intended type of recovery if an emergency is
encountered after takeoff. At the completion of the brief, P asks "Any questions?" P answers any
questions, and then replies "Briefed. Hold the checklist."
P calls for further taxi. Approaching the hold-short, switch to channel 4 and request takeoff
clearance in accordance with Appendix A. If there is sufficient time prior to being cleared onto the
runway, the P checks total and nacelle fuel quantity, the left wing/nacelle for fuel caps in place,
panels secure, and no fluid leaks. Report "checked left." The CP will do the same for the right
wing/nacelle and report "checked right." Once cleared onto the runway, scan for traffic and report
clear, then direct the CP to "continue the checklist." Complete the Takeoff Checklist while taxiing
into position on runway centerline.
P turns on anti-ice/de-ice equipment IAW NATOPS Chapter 19. Normally only the LEFT and
RIGHT PITOT heat is necessary.
P places the following switches on:
a. LEFT and RIGHT LANDING
c. NAV (night or low visibility only)
d. ICE (night only)
