5.20. Shutdown Procedures, Shutdown Check

Once the aircraft has been taxied to the parking position and stopped, the Shutdown Check should be used to secure the engines and prepare the aircraft for unloading. If the aircraft will not be de-powered, (as for a station stop) not all items will be carried out. The Shutdown Check is also to be used to shutdown an engine during taxi. The expanded Shutdown Checklist follows.

[The following checklist is a guide only and cannot apply to all aircraft. The checklist particular to the aircraft must be inserted here]
