3.4. Navigation Aids - Set-up for Departure

If practical, navigation equipment should be set as required before commencing taxi. Navigation equipment should be set up as follows:

  1. For local flights, set the active mode of the navigation equipment for the procedure that is expected to be flown after take-off. Secondary modes should be set to the next most likely procedure.
  2. For other than local flights departing in weather that may permit a return to the departure aerodrome, set the active mode of equipment for en route flight. Secondary modes should be set to facilitate recovery at the departure point.
  3. For flights that are departing in weather that is unlikely to permit a return to the departure aerodrome, set the active mode of equipment for en route flight. Secondary modes should be set to facilitate recovery at the take-off alternate.
