Amazing who similar it is to starting my 2004 echo every morning.

I didn't watch the video.  Does it have anything to do with intentionally parking it at the top of the hill so you can get it rolling and pop the clutch?

actually, the "starting" of the engines is pretty much an afterthought, it's mostly going through the whole host of procedures and checklists required.

I'm sure there's reason for all that manual dial and switch setting but in 2013, you'd think "press start" and wait to see if the system detects any faults and produces an alarm would be more efficient and less chance of human error.

Um... how about "no?"

Yes, comparing a desktop with "winders" to a multi-redundant electronic system is a fair comparison.

My though is why do you do the warning light test AFTER you have spent 10 minutes doing all your other presets?
I would make that my first step after sitting down, and turning on the power in the cockpit.

After about 20 seconds I thought this was going to be one of those videos were they make music using repeated sound effect jump cuts. Thank God it wasn't.
 
2013-09-22 10:39:59 AM
So there's no key? Neat.

Then how would you know that one of the lights didn't fail between the time you did the test and the time you finished your startup procedure?

Actually this video should be called "Preflight Checklist". He inputs GCRR and Index codes while the RTE is apparently off (ACTIVATE), then cuts to a pigeon map and magically we are looking at the arrival board.  The engine start actually sort of begins here.  However the pilot is trolling with the numbers he is imputing.  Just playing with switches.  Probably to see if anyone will notice. LOL.   I do like how he disarms the auto break.. Nice touch.  This is how NOT to start up a 737...

The note with the video says that it's for a fictional flight departing and leaving from a ton of different locations at once. They did that intentionally so guys like al Qaeda wouldn't know the actual sequence and settings.

Because if terrorists are going to go through the trouble of infiltrating a major international airport to the point where they will be unchallenged in the cockpit during pre-flight, they won't have bothered to run it through a copy of MSFS-98 first...

Ok, you beat me too it...  I may not to drone on, but if terrorists are going to take this video seriously.... I think we are going to make it....

In fairness, I did not notice the note....

That's the Airbus mentality. NOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooo thank you.

It's almost exactly the same startup sequence as for my '63 Piper Cherokee, but with more switches.

Are you sure? I thought he PDQ'ed the STFU while the UFIA was still set to GTFO.

Yeah, I kind of doubt that's the  reasonthey did that.  If it is, they're idiots.

No, I don't think I'll ever get over Macho Grande.

Welp, there goes my plan of trying to steal a 737...too many steps.  I figured it would be more like Jewel of the Nile.

As a side note, anyone else see that movie and hope that he would somehow manage to take off in the F16?

I don't want to fly on any plane that has an auto-break switch.
