1.1. Introduction

  1. These Single Crew Aeroplane Standard Operating Procedures (SCSOPs) are issued by [operator's company name] for guidance in the operation of [Aeroplane manufacturer] [Aeroplane type] Aeroplane. The SCSOPs cannot cover all circumstances. However, they are intended to assist personnel to operate Aeroplane within the limitations of the Aeroplane flight manual. All personnel are expected to exercise sound judgment and consistency in their application.
  2. In order for a pilot to carry out their assigned duties, the pilot must meet a standard, and (for the most part) carry out their duties in a standard manner. The SCSOPs deal primarily with the standardization of how to completes their duties. Standardization is one of the most powerful tools available to the pilot to prevent the undesirable, to determine when something undesirable is occurring, and to deal with the undesirable should it occur. These SCSOPs are provided as a part of the standardization tool. However, a standard procedure cannot be devised to cope with all situations.
  3. This chapter contains information of a general nature that applies to several aspects of the operation or does not conveniently fit into the other more specific chapters.
  4. Generally SCSOPs are designed for less complex Aeroplane. If your Aeroplane is a Sinlge Crew Aeroplane but is being operated Multi Crew Environment, please see the Multi Crew Aeroplane Standard Operating Procedures.
