2.14. Before Start Check

[The following procedure caters to the Before Start Check being initiated by the person who will conduct or direct the start. If your company procedure is for another person to initiate the check (such as the Captain) or for the FE to start the engine(s), modify this section appropriately.]

The person who will conduct or direct the start calls for the Before Start Check. The expanded Before Start Checklist follows.
