http://www.balticaa.com Baltic Aviation Academy's series of reportages guiding people to know better the aircraft controls are continued. This week Pranas Drulis, ATPL integrated student, explains what does it mean 'Cold and dark' in aviation. It will be shown how to start-up an airplane from the very beginning. Get a little preview before your type rating trainings!
Great video, very informative.
Thanks for posting.

Actually pushback is done Before starting the engines and the request to make engine start is not done with ATC by rather with the all Clear from the pushback team so that they can leave the area safely ...
ONe of the safety conditions is that of course pushback Can Not be done with engines started ... if that was the case there would be no need for pushback trucks, pilot would simply engage reverse thrust and the airplane would move by it's own. (making a all of of noise on the terminal floor that is :)
ATC request to departure procedures and start the taxing operation is done Way before engines are started ... after that request is accepted then taxing can begin with the instruction conducted by the ATC.

Does a pilot have to memorize all these steps? Or can he/she reference a checklist?

Did not check rudder action or Flap action or settings on take off !!,,always check your flap position on the runway for take off. never the less good insight to the starting procedure on the aircraft

I'm interested in how the communications system works in detail. For example; say I was forced by circumstance to fly the plane. How would I contact the ground for help and talk with them? How would I talk with the passengers, etc.?

can anybody tell me what is the wheel next to the thrust controller? We can see them moving during flight as it is pained in black and white.

This must be a very old plane. Seems like all this repetitive mindless checks could easily be performed by a computer running a script pretty much instantly and error-free. Humans make mistakes, machines don't.

Good but flawed. First, irs switch setting out of order; second, did not set lights;third pack settings missed; fourth, left apu on; fifth, engine start clearance from ground. No need for pushback, looks like he wasn't gated, just on apron. Wonder if pushback was edited out.
Matīss Jurģelis (11 days ago)
What a sequence. So to shut it down you just turn of engine switches and disengage batteries? Because on the startup you will set up everything anyway.
FlightSimmerAustralia (12 days ago)
mate, you don't need to ask ATC for engine start, you need to ask them for push back, but not engine start
Internet Quality Police (14 days ago)
You should have checked the hand brake right away instead of at 8 mins in. While you were messing with all those lights and switches you may have rolled forward and crushed a little old lady walking her dog.

Not a good idea to start cold and dark without a checklist, as this video points out, you will miss a whole lot of checks.

Why would someone turn all the display brightness switches to the lowest setting only to have to turn them back up when it's time to start? There....I just removed some dumb work.

Great video. I use this sometimes when I forget how to set up the A320 while using a flight simulator on my computer.
For anyone looking for a good, yet free simulation of the Airbus A320, I highly recommend the IDG A32X on FlightGear!
