SOP Amplification: Practices and Techniques
This document describes practices and techniques commonly taught by Check and Training staff during crew transition training onto the Boeing 777 at V Australia and elsewhere. Please note that where possible, references to Boeing and V Australia documentation will be provided against the issues raised in this document. However you will find many items raised here for which no reference is provided – generally this implies the problem is considered basic airmanship or common sense, based on operational experience in the Boeing 777 – or not yet documented.
This document also describes some of the more common errors encountered during training. Some of these errors are not necessarily common, but contain learning points that are considered valuable for all pilots undergoing transition training. This document includes screen shots and reference text taken from Boeing and V Australia’s documentation. These images and text are not necessarily up to date or amended – reference to the original documentation is always mandatory.
Finally, nothing in this document should be considered authoritative over any procedures found in the Boeing Normal Procedures (NP’s). The NP’s and V Australia A1 document are overriding.
This document is based on extensive research and operational experience of the Boeing EICAS and ECL found in the 777, in conjunction with documented procedures in the Boeing 777 QRH, FCTM and FCOM. Material incorporated in this guide is taken from all three of the relevant Boeing documents, as well as Boeing publications from issues of Airliner magazine and other sources. Material from the V Australia A1 flight operations manual is also reproduced here.
As such the SOP Amplification is to be regarded as secondary in precedence to all these reference texts and should not be actively referred to with respect to operation of the aircraft. Additionally this document incorporates techniques that have been developed and tested in conjunction with Simulator Training but not validated in operation of the aircraft, and must be read with caution.
