7.4. Checks, Checklists, and Drills

  1. General — The additional direction in the following paragraphs applies to the guidance that is provided in the General chapter.
    1. The drills and checks that apply to some situations are included in the same checklist. The memory items that comprise the drill portion of the procedure are indicated by a medium bullet " * " two spaces to the left of the item.
    2. Unlike normal procedures checks, there is no statement that a particular check is "complete" as the last item. This difference is required as some checks lead to other checks. It is up to the flight crew member who is doing the check to advise the other members when checks are commenced and when they are complete.
    3. Items that require confirmation by a second flight crew member are indicated by a capital letter "(C)" in parentheses, located between the bullet (if applicable) and the item.
